Many know that she is a trained flutist, but a few people forget that Lizzo is also an actress, too. Lizzo plays the character named Liz in the 2019 film, Hustlers alongside Jennifer Lopez and KeKe Palmer.
She also stars in the upcoming show called 'Yeti, Yeti" that is currently in post-production, according to IMDB. In my personal opinion, I would love to see Lizzo in more acting projects.
She's honest about not feeling okay all of the time.
Lizzo is very open and honest about her mental health, especially as a worldwide known popstar. It is extremely comforting, in a way, we are not alone.
In June of 2019, Lizzo uploaded an Instagram video speaking about her personal battle with depression.
While speaking with Variety, Lizzo explains the conversation she has with her therapist.
"Fame happens to you, and it’s more of an observation of you. People become famous, and it’s like — my DNA didn’t change. Nothing changed about me. My anxiety didn’t go away. My depression didn’t go away. The things that I love didn’t go away. I’m still myself. But the way y’all look at me and perceive me has changed. It’s a very weird, kind of formless thing. I don’t want to seem ungrateful. It was sad, and I had to talk to my therapist about the loss of who I was. Most famous people have been famous just as long as they’ve been a person, so they have acclimated more to it. I was going into dive bars and getting shitfaced in 2018. And nobody knew who I was, and nobody was bothering me. By 2019, I noticed I couldn’t go to restaurants with my dancers and stuff."
She is always for the girls, especially the Big GRRLS.
Now, we know Lizzo embraces body positivity but she takes it to a whole other level.
Released in March of this year, Lizzo's 3 time Emmy award-winning reality show, 'Watch For The Big Grrrls," was about the search for dancers that "look like her".
Lizzo spoke with E! about how important it was for her to seek out women who looked like her.
"It's more important to me to have those kinds of women next to me on stage than to have the most technically skilled, amazing dancer that's not a reflection of how I look."
She loves her hometown, Detroit.
After her Emmy win this past weekend, Lizzo is doing something special for her hometown.
Recently, it was announced that the Detroit native will be having a small invitation-only hometown concert, in partnership with SiriusXM.
The intimate performance will be for SiriusXM subscribers at Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit on Wednesday, October 5th, which is the night before she headlines at the well-known venue, Little Caesars Arena.
