Lizzo made a political statement at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night when she pleaded with fans to vote and “make changes to laws that are oppressing us” as she accepted the Video for Good award.
The “Good as Hell” singer stepped on stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, where she admitted she wasn’t sure what the moonman was celebrating, but she was grateful for her fans for showing up and voting for her to win the trophy.
“It means everything to making a change in this country,” she said as she correlated how important it was to vote for MTV awards as it was for anything else, including elections.
Lizzo was excited to be on stage and made sure her supporters were acknowledged. “I want to thank say thank you so much for supporting me and loving on me,” she said.
The “Truth Hurts” musician refused to address a recent interview given by a comedian who discussed her body, and instead told the crowd, “They be like, Lizzo, why don’t you clap back? Why don’t you clap back? Because this is winning! This is winning!”
Earlier in the evening, she performed a few of her hits from her fourth studio album, “Special.”
The catalog was three years in the making following the incredible success of “Cuz I Love You,” with multiple platinum singles recorded on the Recording Industry Association of America
