This is not a drill: Rihanna has revealed she wants to collab with Lizzo. We have multiple questions, the first: is the world ready for this kind of power?
It turns out that Rihanna is fangirling on Lizzo just as hard as basically everyone. She told Entertainment Weekly that Lizzo is “everything that Savage stands for.” The singer’s gushy moment was captured this week at her Savage X Fenty show for New York Fashion Week.
While we desperately wish the singer was referring to a music collab, it turns out she’d be keen to get Lizzo on board with her fashion label. Considering the singer’s line is based on inclusivity – across all races, cultures and shapes – it’s not hard to see why. Lizzo is our new queen when it comes to embracing yourself, no matter who you are and what you look like.
Rihanna raved HARD about Lizzo after the show, and honestly, it’s relatable AF:
“I would collaborate with her on the lights for this interview right now, Lizzo is so badass and she’s everything that Savage stands for: A confident woman, no matter what size, colour, shape ― your attitude is what makes you savage.”
The love shared between these two artists is heartwarming amidst some pretty catty developments between female celebs. Women power, as a vibe, isn’t doing so well at the moment with the Desperate Housewives of New York recently dragging a transgender model during fashion week, and the whole Caroline Calloway saga.
What’s heartwarming is how mutual this duo’s admiration is – Lizzo has made her support for Rihanna’s fashion endeavour very public. Which makes complete sense considering she looks absolutely fire on Elle’s October cover where she’s wearing a strapless bra from the fashion line.
A similar supportive moment happened between the two after Lizzo’s performance at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. According to the singer, Rihanna slid into her DMs to congratulate her for the performance.
Let us all look towards Rihanna and Lizzo when it comes to how we, as women, should relate to one another: a little bit of fangirl with a whole lot of respect.
