These jokes are “Good As Hell.”
Lizzo was one of the first celebrities to arrive on the red carpet of the 2022 VMAs on Sunday, and in an outfit that everyone is talking about on social media.
34-year-old hitmaker “Truth Hurts” looked destined to be the evening’s most remembered contestant in her voluminous navy blue Jean Paul Gaultier Couture gown.
Lizzo adorned with dramatic Lael Osness gloves and Jennifer Fisher jewels, including multi-hoop earrings and even a fake lip ring.
She also matched her lipstick with her dress and gloves, opting for a deep navy blue pout and a slicked back hairstyle.
Lizzo’s oversized look got mixed reviews on Twitter, where viewers compared it to a garbage bagbedding, “Little Mermaid” villain Ursula and more.
A resemblance to Ursula was considered uncanny as both shades of blue, bold lips and strapless dresses. “Who made Lizzo dress like Ursula?” a Twitter account complained.
“Now I love lizzo, but why did she just jump in a garbage bag and call it a day?” someone early.
“If you get stuck and fold your parachute”, another joked.
just kidding a fourth: “At least Lizzo can take a nap during the show if it gets boring since she brought her duvet.”
The rapper’s appearance too received equations to Missy Elliot’s music video “The Rain,” in which she wore an instantly iconic black blow-up suit that continues to inspire Halloween costumes today.
Earlier in the day, the Texan hit back at comedian Aries Spears, who came under fire for comparing Lizzo to the “st-emoji,” saying, “You know what kills me about women is the hypocrisy and the contradiction,” while he sweated profusely.
Her supporters were quick to defend the body-positive musician
Lizzo will be singing her new single “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)” at the awards show tonight and will likely turn into another meme-worthy ensemble later in the evening.
