Pop diva Lizzo recently joined The Breakfast Club for a morning chat about new music and even dished on her relationship with comedian Myke Wright, during which she jokingly referred to her social media posts with him as a soft launch.
The “Truth Hurts” singer slowly began revealing her boo most noticeably in March. The two made things red carpet official in June during the premiere of her Amazon Prime Video reality series, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. She told the morning show hosts that she’s known Wright for years and was friends with him pre-fame, which adds to the mystery of her series of soft launches.
But soft launches are not a bad thing. The subtle pictures of two glasses clinking together, a hand on the table, a foot on the beach, or any small indication that you are seeing someone is the mystery social media deserves. That’s according to Shamyra Howard LCSW, CST, a sexologist and relationship expert, who joined Blavity to discuss ways to successfully and respectfully soft launch a boo.
