“‘B!T@H BE HUMBLE’ -@KendrickLamar,” the 36-year-old singer captioned the image, in which she shows off the stretch marks on her bum in a colorful one-piece swimsuit, her back to the camera.
Rowland’s fans instantly complimented the “Work” singer’s bold body-positive statement. “Yes something real to look at perfect body soul mind voice god did great with u @kellyrowland ?????,” one commenter wrote. Added another: “Yasss momma ??.”
Lamar’s new music video for his single “Humble” dropped on Thursday, March 30, causing a buzz on Twitter for its bold visuals and its religious and cultural allusions, as well as its controversial lyrics.
The line that Rowland is referencing is one in which Lamar raps, “I’m so f–kin’ sick and tired of the Photoshop / Show me something natural like Afro on Richard Pryor / Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks.”
Fans reacted to the 29-year-old rapper’s video with mixed reviews.
