Saweetie is out here celebrating the success of her new single ‘Fast Motion’, and just simply doing things to have fun! The rapper was spotted putting on a show for some of her fans on the Santa Monica pier over the weekend, and found herself explaining what really went down after catching some shade online.
A fan caught a now viral video of Saweetie performing her new song on the pier with nothing but a mic and a huge bluetooth speaker. She also had a bucket alongside a sign labeled “Pretty B*tch Summer Donations”, which led some fans to believe she was performing for tips.
Well, Saweetie took to Instagram live to explain that she was not performing for money, and said she was just having fun and putting on a show for some fans who recognized her on the pier. She also said the money raised was given to an upcoming artist she met while there.
“No girl, I was not asking for no money yesterday,” she said to a fan. “Actually I know I said rent is due, but yesterday was a spur of the moment and it was fun. We were at the Santa Monica pier and I saw this upcoming artist, he was like singing with this microphone.”
She continued saying, “So I was like you know what, I got a new single so imma just perform for my fans because I love them so much. A couple people noticed me so I was like imma just get on the mic real quick but all the proceeds and donations from that tip jar were given to him.”
She also made it clear that she has her own money and would not need to be rapping for tips!
“I’m just being facetious I have my own money, y’all quit playing with me,” she said.
