In this era of political uncertainty and cultural division, Lizzo is on a mission to help all of us love ourselves.
The artist, who’s been having quite the year, took a few moments during her VMA performance to say, “I’m tired of the bullshit. And I don’t have to know your story to know that you’re tired of the bullshit too. It’s so hard trying to love yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back. Am I right?
“So I want to take this opportunity right now to just feel good as hell. Because you deserve to feel good as hell. We deserve to feel good as hell.”
Yes, Lizzo. And no one deserves to feel as good as you do. You’ve earned this.
