Lizzo Slays BET Awards Performance!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Especially this breakout artist… Lizzo.
The summer of Lizzo continues.
The pop singer (or as she says in her apt Twitter bio, “America’s Next Bop Star”) brought the crowd at the BET Awards to its feet as she performed her energetic 2017 single “Truth Hurts.”
The performance took a page from the song’s music video, which subverts the age-old tale of the jilted bride. It opened with Lizzo & her dancers gyrating on a giant wedding cake; the singer wore a short white dress with nearly as many tiers as the fake dessert.
By the time Lizzo made it through her first verse, she had pulled off her veil, stripping down to a lacy white teddy.
“You’re 'posed to hold me down, but you’re holding me back,” she sang, twirling the sheer veil in her hand.
“And that’s the sound of me not calling you back.”
The singer made her way down the cake’s layers & grabbed a bouquet from one of her dancers. She aimed the prop directly at the crowd as she (& her very engaged audience) reiterated one of the song’s most pointed lines: “I will never ever, ever, ever be your side chick." One member of said audience was Rihanna, who stood up & clapped enthusiastically after Lizzo began playing her flute, in between twerks, during the song’s bridge, where Lizzo boasts: “I don’t play tag. ... I been it.”
