Ari Lennox Turns Heads (Literally) with Trendy Twist After Bottle Incident

Ari Lennox, known for her energetic performances, recently faced the harsh reality of live shows in the current climate. The troubling trend of concertgoers throwing objects at performers escalated during her opening act for Rod Wave when she was hit with a water bottle. In a creative and bold response to the situation, the Dreamville singer wore a helmet during her performance in Oakland on Thursday night, turning a safety precaution into a fashionable statement.

Security was captured on camera returning the tossed bottle to the person responsible, demonstrating professionalism in the face of provocation. Lennox displayed resilience, jokingly considering keeping the helmet on for the rest of her set, which went off without incident. Despite the challenges, the artist, who is typically associated with upbeat and positive music, transitioned from addressing the incident to embracing a playful aloofness on stage.

Lennox admitted that opening for Rod Wave was difficult due to the differences in their music. In an interview with Angela Yee, she shared the challenge of delivering her lively performance to an audience anticipating Rod Wave’s more melancholic material. Lennox acknowledged the contrast, saying, “I think my music is a little too happy. And I mean no disrespect, right? But it’s too like ‘Pressure,’ and his is, like, different. So, I think the people are just like, ‘What the hell is this happy s**t on here?’”

Despite the obstacles, the Washington, D.C. native demonstrated her resilience and unwavering talent, maintaining a positive attitude throughout the ordeal. While live performances present challenges for artists, Lennox’s ability to navigate them with a smile is a testament to her professionalism. As we hope the helmet remains a fashion statement rather than a necessity, stay tuned to Honk Magazine for the latest updates on Ari Lennox’s journey.

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
