Lizzo is one heck of an artist. Every time she performs on stage, she oozes with confidence. It’s hard to imagine the singer American singer getting intimidated with all that sass.
But if there’s one other recording artist that Lizzo finds intimidating, it’s Fenty Beauty founder Rihanna. As it inevitably turns out, the singer is a huge fan of the Work hitmaker and beauty mogul. Speaking to E! News, Lizzo revealed that she was over the clouds when she saw Ri-Ri giving her a standing ovation at the 2019 BET awards.
While it’s no surprise that Rihanna found the “Truth Hurts” performance impressive, Lizzo would’ve been nervous at her presence. The singer tells E! News:
“Rihanna is incredible, it’s like I’ve always wanted to be friends with Rihanna. Like, who don’t want to be friends with Rihanna?”
“She the only person that I be like, ‘I’m intimidated by you,’ you know what I’m saying?” Lizzo continued. The singer also quipped, “Like no one else in that audience, I imagine them all in their underwear but it’s like Rihanna, I was imagining her naked.”
Lizzo didn’t actually get to see the artist in the audience while she was performing. And thankfully so because she admits that she “would’ve been a little bit more nervous”. The singer even assumed that RiRi would have missed her performance at the awards.
With the revelations, fans are hoping that Lizzo does end up becoming good friends with the star. Can we smell a bomb collaboration on the way? We can only hope so!
