Beyonce Watching Lizzo Perform Is Every Single One of Us

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ll have noticed the massive impact that Lizzo is having on the music industry. From her incredible lyrics and her infectious beats to her message of self-love, she’s the breath of fresh air that we’ve all been waiting for. But one area in which Lizzo truly excels? Her live performances.

The internet has already been blown away by her sets at the BET Awards and the VMAs. Lizzo was so good, in fact, that she made fans of A-listers like Rihanna and Queen Latifah. But her latest turn at the Philadelphia music festival showed that even Beyonce can’t resist her charms.

She’s been making music for a long time (her debut album came out in 2013) but she’s only hit the mainstream fairly recently.

Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is a total masterpiece.

But it’s not just the brilliant music that she makes that has garnered Lizzo such a legion of fans. There’s so much more to the star.

Which other plus-size, dance-trained, hip-hop artist plays the flute in almost all of her songs? Truly, Lizzo is one of a kind.

But what’s even more important than her talent?

It’s gotta be Lizzo’s incredible message. Her lyrics are all designed to inspire self-love and confidence – particularly in young women. In a world of problematic messages, she’s a real force for good.

Social media is rife with jokes about how we are all now trying to love ourselves – if only to make Lizzo proud. Hey, any motivator makes for a good start!

She performed her hit single “Truth Hurts,” wearing a leotard-wedding-dress – and blew the collective minds of the entire audience.

Lizzo then proceeded to remove her veil and gown, dance like no one was watching, and even include an impressively intricate flue solo. We have to stan.

There was one audience member at the BET Awards who was truly losing her mind over Lizzo’s performance – a certain Rihanna.

She also performed at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards – and, again, blew the internet’s collective mind. For one thing, the stage was decorated by a giant inflatable booty.

And, at the end, also managed to preach a message of self-love to the eagerly awaiting audience.

At the VMAs, the audience was pretty much all going wild for Lizzo – including one Queen Latifah.

In one NSFW Instagram message, Lizzo claims that Rihanna “said I f**ked the stage like it was my side b***h. Don’t get mad, Rihanna. I am not trying to blow up your spot, but that was a hard a** line! I might take that line.”

Incredibly, the POTUS in our hearts, Barack Obama, tweeted his and Michelle’s (incredibly cool) summer playlist – and you best believe it included our gal.

Oddly enough, she had tweeted earlier in the day about her love for Obama. Sometimes the universe really seems to work in mysterious ways.

Because her latest performance has garnered her yet another high-profile fan – the Queen herself, Beyonce.

The Made In America festival celebrates the very greatest of U.S. music across a range of genres and is held throughout the month of September.

Jay-Z has long been associated with the festival and he made an appearance (and performance) there this weekend.

Lizzo also took to the stage on Sunday – in a typically amazing array of stagewear. Her set included all of her hit songs, including “Juice” and “Good as Hell,” plus exceptional dance moves.

But you probably guessed that already, right? After she finished, Twitter went wild with reactions to their new hero.

As you’d probably expect, Jay-Z’s wife and sometime-collaborator. Beyonce, was in attendance at the festival. She also performed – but her biggest moment took place backstage.

At first glance, it looks like a signature shot of her energetic performance style. But it was actually so much more.

Because, if you look closely, there’s a certain somebody watching Lizzo from behind the scenes – and it seems like Beyonce likes what she sees.

Because some fans even captured a video of Beyonce grooving along to Lizzo’s signature beats.

We all knew that Lizzo was amazing – but having confirmation from Beyonce makes it all seem real. The future’s looking bright for our favorite flutist.

Maybe this performance is the start of a beautiful musical collaboration. We would love to see it. Keen to see more of Queen B. Keep scrolling for the jaw-dropping reveal of her natural hair.
