I LOVE HER! I've got tickets to her Paris show, cannot wait! I missed my stop on the metro this week reading the first article!

A colleague parked behind me today and was blasting "Truth Hurts". We ended up walking the block to the office while both singing "I got boy problems, that's the human in me. Bling! Bling! I solve 'em, that's the goddess in me!" It's a good way to start a Friday work day in a male-dominated industry.

"I got boy problems, that's the human in me. Bling! Bling! I solve 'em, that's the goddess in me!"

I love that line, too! What I just adore about that song is that it acknowledges that, yeah, romantic rejection legitimately hurts. It sucks! But guess what, you can get through it. It's so rare to find pop songs that aren't all 100% YEAH WHO CARES but that still give you that feeling of triumph. Genius songwriting and I love her for it.

“I want people to feel that closeness, because if you can love me as much as you do without knowing me, and without me being like this archetype of modern beauty in media, then you can love yourself.” Oh, this is so good. Thank you, ellieBOA!

My significant other said I sounded like a teenager because I said, "I'm so excited. Lizzo's new album drops on April 19th!"

She is amazing, and Good as Hell was my 2018 anthem. Looking forward to see what 2019 brings.

I learned of her via Brad Neely's Harg Nallin' Sclopio Peepio — her mini-songs were one of the main reasons I kept watching.

After Lil Pump and Lil Tay, Lil Lizzo is so refreshing. Her flute has an Instagram account at Sashabefluting.

LOVE HER. And my 15yo son does too. I love that we both love the same music.

The only time I’ve seen Lizzo live she was backing Har Mar Superstar — and she had better stage presence than Har Mar

Lizzo + Missy Elliot!!!!!

I might find a tiara to wear that day to celebrate our glorious new future.

Just to brag, I loved Lizzo before it was cool - back when she was in GRRL PRTY and there were like 40 people at a show. She was a superstar then too.

Saw Lizzo open for St Vincent who opened for Florence + The Machine. It was a pretty mind blowing night. One hell of a damned good time.

I have tickets for both of her local shows. Yes, I am gloating about this.

also deeply sad that I can't go with rtha, who introduced me to Lizzo, and with whom I've seen her perform several times

Lizzo is a goddamn icon. I truly believe that she's on the verge of blowing up, so get your tickets while you can.

gingerbeer, when I think of Lizzo, I think of rtha, who I'm pretty sure turned me on to Lizzo here on the Blue.

This comment comes to you from a fluffy pile of ashes, as I have spontaneously combusted in envy.
