If you’re late to the Lizzo party, worry not, because her latest news story is pretty much the perfect summation of what the artist is about.
Not only is she a supremely talented songwriter and performer, but she’s got this “zero f**ks to give” approach to life that is seriously inspiring.
And yes, that extends out to her love life. (Shoot your shot, honey!)
In a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, ex-One Direction cutie, Niall Horan, revealed that the ‘Truth Hurts’ star made a pass at him when they first met.
“I was in London doing a radio performance in the studio,” he told Fallon.
“She was coming in to do an interview in the studio as well, and someone said, ‘Oh, Lizzo’s here! She’d love to meet you’. So, we’re passing in the corridor, I was like, ‘Ah! Lovely to meet you!’ Gave her a big hug. ‘Your voice is incredible. Your songs are amazing. You’re absolutely smashing it.’
“And literally, without missing a beat, she just went, ‘You can smash this!’” And I was just like, ‘Fair play’…I actually started blushing myself!”
This isn’t the first time the pair has had a laugh over this story, with Lizzo recounting the exchange during an interview with BBC Radio One. Horan spotted the footage on Twitter and sent some love the singer’s way.
While it’s pretty clear the romance is just playful for now, we can’t help but imagine the sweet, sweet music these two could make (Literally! Get your minds out of the gutter.) Maybe a ‘Jerome’ remix? I’d pay to hear it.
