Before I was 5 seconds into this video I was having flashbacks to this post I did after Donna Summer passed.

Dej Loaf – Me U & Hennessy

In retrospect that post was a little sketchy, I spent about half of it making sure I wasn’t being a dick and talking about how I might be wrong in all kinds of ways, and unfortunately I feel the same way here, but I think it might be good to have some conversation around this subject because I don’t think it’s very conducive to music or artists to push them to have a very stereotypically sexy persona when they’re not genuinely comfortable with showing that publicly.  Is the version of Dej we see in  “Me U & Hennessyjust another authentic expression of her personality, or is she pushing back (or possibly being pressured to push back) against people who called her a dyke when she wore a loose fitting shirt in her first big video?  I don’t have the answers, but I think the question should be posed.

    “Sexy is what you make it” – Dej Loaf

    I like how in that interview she talks about how she just likes to switch it up, and she’s true to herself in that way, and I think the sexiness of this video feels personal & authentic. I hope she’s doing it cause it’s how she wants to express the song & video artistically, and not from social/management pressure, but of course there’s no way to know.

      yeah she did kinda address it in that interview, i wasn’t sold on her performance in the video though, she just didn’t look comfortable to me. but you’re right there’s no way to be sure
