Lizzo says she was addressing everybody going against her
Grammy-winning singer Lizzo fired off a tweet on Monday (August 29) clarifying that she wasn’t talking about comedian Aries Spears in her raged 2022 MTV’s VMA speech.
“Lemme make one thing VERY clear—I wasn’t addressing anybody in the my speech last night…I was addressing EVERYBODY ” she wrote.
During her VMA speech at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, on Sunday night (August 29), the “2 Be Loved” songstress used the platform to blast her negative critics, and many assumed she was targeting Spears.
“[Your vote] means everything to make a change in this country,” she stated. “So, remember when you’re voting for your favorite artists, vote to change some of these laws that are oppressing us. Now, to the bitches that got something to say about me in the press … I’m not gonna say nothing! Why don’t you clap back? Because bitch, I’m winning.”
Spears faced criticism after a clip surfaced on August 26 of the comedian saying he “can’t get past the fact that she(Lizzo) looks like the shit emoji.”
