Magnoliah Black hates Tyler Perry. This week I sat down with the burlesque performer, writer, and speaker to discuss media representation of plus-size black women, living next-door to your heroes, and having a Dom that buys you gift certificates to Whole Foods. Listen in to find out how she went from awkward black girl to Rubenesque Burlesque sensation! Highlights include:
- How getting flogged in public helped her learn to love her body,
- what's political about being fat, black, and near naked on stage,
- and why she's glad no one called her "Tip" in high school.
