Ari Lennox has vowed to never do another interview again after being disrespected by a podcast host.
During the interview, you will hear the moment DJ MacG ask the songstress, “Someone F**** you good right now?”.
Ari was understandably shocked and blindsided by the question had no idea why he would ask her that.
You will hear her say “OMG, whoa there …why that way, why ask it that way.”
DJ MacG said he asked her in that manner because that was what she said in one of her songs.

After the interview, Ari tweeted that she will never do another interview again and Twitter responded.
Ari Lennox was uncomfortable with how invasive that interview was that she said she won’t be doing more interviews. You don’t see people asking Beyonce about her sex life because she has 1+1 or partition etc. You can ask people about their inspirations without being a prude.

so sorry, queen. this is so embarrassing for South Africa. the people you make music for hold you in the highest regard, we are so ashamed of how that interview went down. ?

This isn’t logic. This is you wanting women to be embarrassed or in situations where they have zero control. Fuck you it’s a bad interview and if his others are like this then they’re all bad

Hey @AriLennox really sorry you had to experience such crassness.
We’ve got an incredible arts and culture scene in South Africa, as well as an exciting generation of media and content creators who would offer far more professional and ethical interview questions than this guy. https://t.co/nCFtITWuUw

The MacG interview is a brilliant piece of marketing for Ari Lennox who, by the way, has started a new album. It achieves two things: it paints her as a victim to a vile man (note how that’s the part of the interview you’re seeing)& it puts her in the minds of African consumers

and then there are those on Twitter that agree with the disrespect because of the lyrics in Ari Lennox’s song.
Ari Lennox in a song : “lick it …fuck you good”
MacG in an interview: who’s fucking you good right now
Tweeps: distasteful, disgusting, rapey ,cringe, embarrassing
Why don’t yall just say you hate MacG and stop hiding these nonsense pic.twitter.com/oU9Pi4xVYw

Manj why was she shocked when she heard her own lyrics, that’s my problem. Cz her words in those lyrics mean it’s wat she wants to be known for in my opinion.

Ari has doubled down how she is feeling about interviews.
But fuck it! I don’t want anyone feeling sorry for me. I’m tired of the narrative. Exhausted. I’m good I promise. But as for interviews I’m not doing them anymore. There’s enough lives and interviews out there already.

Just because I happily and freely sing/write about sex don’t make any kind of creepy disrespect warranted. I clearly was in immense shock and hate that I didn’t react differently.
I’m just like… why was I alone on a call full of people?
Why didn’t anyone intervene? And why wasn’t parts of the interview destroyed like the team promised?
Why did it happen to begin with? I just feel slow and ambushed and blind-sighted.
Honestly it’s all my karma.
