Flau’jae Johnson slams Aries Spears over fake eyelash comments

LSU Tigers basketball player and rapper Flau’jae Johnson recently weighed in on the ongoing debate over beauty standards, specifically Aries Spears’ critical comments about black women wearing fake eyelashes. Spears, a stand-up comedian, took to Instagram to voice his disapproval of the dramatic beauty trend, comparing the lashes to “pterodactyl wings” and “BBLs for your face.”


Johnson’s Response to Spears

In a bold statement, Johnson encouraged women to embrace their personal style. She further criticized Spears’ stance, saying men should refrain from commenting on women’s choices, and stressed that men should stay in their place.

Spears’ comments, which he called a “public service announcement” for black women, have fueled discussions about beauty standards and personal autonomy. He acknowledged his love and respect for black women but implored them to forgo heavy, exaggerated lashes.

Johnson’s Rising Career and New Music

In addition to the beauty debate, Johnson is causing a stir in the music industry with her new album Best of both worldswith collaborations with notable artists such as Lil Wayne, NLE Choppa and 2Rare. Her recent single with Lil Wayne, “Came Out A Beast”, has been met with positive reviews and Johnson is determined to further her music career, inspired by praise from her collaborators.

The dialogue between Johnson and Spears underscores a larger conversation about gender, beauty standards, and the importance of respecting individual choices. While Johnson continues to defend her stance and celebrate her artistic achievements, she remains a prominent voice for young black women navigating the intersection of culture, identity, and expression.
