“In that moment I was thinking about baby me, listening to Happy Face by destiny’s child and crying myself to sleep because of bullies… I thought about Beyoncé jumping into the room where Tina Turner was waiting to meet her for the first time,” Lizzo wrote in the post. “I think of what we all mean to people and how cyclical it is. We are all so infinitesimally and maximally connected and significant. It’s an honor. Thank you @beyonce.”
Lizzo was also spotted singing her heart out, beer in hand, to “Church Girls” on Tuesday.
During her speech while accepting Record of the Year for “About Damn Time,” Lizzo called Beyoncé the “artist of our lives,” recalling a time when she skipped school to see her perform live in Houston.
You changed my life,” she told her from the Grammys stage. “You sang that gospel medley, and the way you made me feel, I was like, ‘I want to make people feel this way with my music.’ So thank you so much. You clearly are the artist of our lives.”
