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.
But now Lizzo has found herself another fan. Kristen Bell shared videos of her daughter belting out the star's hit "Good as Hell" - and her reaction was all of us.
Lizzo was born Melissa Viviane Jefferson in Detroit in 1988.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.
For one thing, she's totally unique.
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.
And the internet has responded.

In June, Lizzo stormed the stage at the BET Awards.
via: Getty ImagesShe performed her hit single "Truth Hurts," wearing a leotard-wedding-dress - and blew the collective minds of the entire audience.
She started the performance atop a giant wedding cake.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.
And eagle-eyed fans noticed one thing.

But the latest celebrity Lizzo fan story may be the cutest yet.It involves everyone's favorite Gossip Girl, Kristen Bell - and more importantly, her adorable daughter.
Bell was doing the school run - a routine every mom knows well.But this time, there was a difference. Her daughter was serenading her as she drove - and her choice of song was absolutely on point.
Yep, you guessed it.Bell's daughter was singing the Lizzo classic "Good as Hell" - and she was actually kinda good?
But it was Bell's reaction that was the best part.
via: InstagramShe could barely hold back her smiles as her daughter nailed the lyrics. And on top of that, Bell looked every inch the proud mother.
There's clearly a benefit to listening to Lizzo.
via: InstagramAfter hearing her daughter's performance, Bell claimed she, too was feeling "good as hell." Honestly, is there anything Lizzo can't do? For more Lizzo content, keep scrolling to learn about the lyrics that became a hilarious meme.
