Lizzo

Sunday, November 5


Armed with choreography for days and a light show that would definitely cause seizures for folks with epilepsy, Lizzo and friends made their way through tracks from all of the singer’s records, including “Coconut Oil,” “En Love” and newer tracks like “Water Me” and “Truth Hurts.” It's one thing to just watch a performer do their thing, but with Lizzo, she made sure the audience was a part of the experience, bringing on a couple of people from the crowd to dance and putting on a shirt that was designed for her (thrown on stage in a package which Lizzo opened). “If you don’t leave with anything today, I hope you leave with self-love,” Lizzo told the audience towards the end of her set. And you know, I think that’s why so many people are drawn to her; Lizzo’s themes of self-love and self-care are attractive and speak to us who may struggle with those things like size, color, gender or sexual orientation. And instead of feeling ashamed about it, this queen is just like, “fuck that, be you, and love yourself, 'cause no one can love you more than you.”
