Saweetie stole the show on Thursday when she decided to have a dance-off with the Los Angeles Clippers’ mascot at Crypto.com Arena. In front of basketball fans and several celebrities who came to watch the Clippers’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers, the “Best Friend” rapper got up out of her seat and got down with Chuck the Condor.
The mascot and the artist appeared to be having the time of their life as they danced to “Conga” by Gloria Estefan during a timeout in the fourth quarter, TMZ reports.
Lakers’ fans were probably feeling down while watching another poor performance from their team, but Saweetie may have cheered them up while shaking her booty with the mascot. Condor gently escorted the rapper to her seat after the performance and encouraged the audience to give her applause. Cheers were heard from the crowd as Saweetie concluded her brief dance show.
Saweetie appears to be feeling good about life after recently opening up about why she decided to cut her hair. As Blavity previously reported, the artist said the new style marks the start of another chapter in her life.
“I just feel like I’m at a very transitional point in my woman life, my human life, my artist life, and I wanted to start fresh,” she said in an interview with The Real.
The 28-year-old also uploaded The Pretty B.I.T.C.H (Boss, Independent, Tough, CEO, and Hyphy) video, inspired by her Pretty B***h Music album, to encourage women to love themselves.
“Through this metamorphosis of Saweetie, I want to share what I’ve learned,” she said. “So when I say Pretty B.I.T.C.H Magic, it’s about your aura, your self-esteem, your confidence. I just love to teach women what I’ve learned.”
Justin Bieber, Rami Malek, Normani and Israel Adesanya were also among the celebrities in attendance at the game on Thursday.
