GloRilla is back trending once again. However, this time it isn’t for her music.

If you haven’t heard of this rising star, you must not be on social media. The Tennessee rapper broke the internet this summer with her most popular song to date, “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)”, immediately shooting her into the spotlight.

The song has racked up millions of plays across streaming services, and the accompanying video has nearly 25 million views. It even inspired several viral parodies of the song on TikTok. Her overnight success landed her a record deal with Yo Gotti’s label, Collective Music Group (CMG), and she’s been on a roll ever since.

This month, GloRilla appeared on The Cruz Show on LA’s Real 92.3. During her segment, she spoke on her recent record deal with CMG, F.N.F’s success, and bodied the Llama Llama Challenge (a children’s book rapping challenge). However, she also took the time to address some social media comments on her body.

A clip of the interview was previewed on The Cruz Show and Real 92.3’s Instagram account days before her full interview aired. In the August 17th post, she strongly stated that she never wants to get a BBL.

Instead, she spoke positively about her body and questioned how people keep “missing all the body [she] does have.” In this short clip, she laughed off the idea of her undergoing a BBL procedure with the host, exuding the staple confidence we’ve heard in her music and seen throughout GloRilla’s musical career.

A little over 10 days later, GloRilla is addressing her trolls once again, but this time on her personal Instagram. She posted a partial photo of herself on her story with the following caption:

Women’s bodies — especially ladies in hip-hop — have always been scrutinized and debated by the general public. Dating back to the 90s with Lil Kim and Foxy Brown to the present-day with female rappers like Dream Doll and Megan Thee Stallion, women have always dealt with public opinion about our bodies.

The rise of BBLs in celebrity/influencer culture, social media, and the entertainment industry has only created more pressure to obtain certain beauty standards to make it in the industry.

GloRilla’s statements addressing the negative comments about her body are part of the new wave of women in hip-hop, much like Megan Thee Stallion, who are unapologetically themselves, and unwilling to change to fit into the music industry’s mold.

The Twitter account Say Cheese started the viral discussion earlier today. Thankfully, fans and many Twitter users have come to the defense of GloRilla in the comments, praising her authenticity and dedication to staying true to herself.

In such a short timeframe, fans have fallen in love with the raw energy and passionate female independence GloRilla embodies. It looks like they will continue to defend her from anyone who opposes that.
