Lizzo was also named Time’s Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year list.
What We Know:
- The singer, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, shared images of both her Time magazine and her Entertainment Weekly with her 6.9 million followers on Instagram. These images were captioned: “After years of falling in love [with] audiences and having them fall back in love [with] me… this means the world! 2 covers in one day?! How entertaining is that?!
- The Detroit native released her debut album in 2013 but didn’t get recognized until hits like “Truth Hurts,” “Juice,” and “Good As Hell” were rereleased years later.”
- According to Time’s writer Samantha Irby, going to a Lizzo’s concert is like going to worship. “Attending a Lizzo concert feels like worshipping at the church of self-love, if your preacher was a pop star living joyfully in a big black body, delivering a sermon of self-acceptance that’s as frank as it is accessible.”
- This has been a big year for the 31-year-old singer, and it only seems to be getting better. She is the most nominated artist for the 2020 Grammy Awards with eight nominations.
