Lizzo has been named TIME's 2019 Entertainer of The Year. Lizzo expressed her excitement via Twitter on Wednesday.“ARE … YOU … NOT … ENTERTAINED?” she wrote in a retweet of her cover of TIME magazine.
In an interview with TIME, Lizzo spoke on how her eight-year grind finally catapulted her into the spotlight as a chart-topping artist. “I’ve been doing positive music for a long as time,” she said.
“Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream!”
