Lizzo shocked after Beyonce wishes her a happy birthday


Lizzo is lost for words after discovering Beyonce wished her a happy birthday, as she hailed the singer as her “inspiration”.

The Juice singer turned 32 on Monday (April 27), and to celebrate the special occasion, fellow singer Beyonce took the time to send her a congratulatory message, whilst also raising awareness for the current coronavirus pandemic.

Beyonce’s message was posted through her charity initiative BeyGood, which shared an image reading: “BeyGood supports COVID-19 relief.” And underneath the charitable comment, the post also read: “Happy birthday Lizzo.”

On Tuesday, the Truth Hurts hitmaker saw the post and took to Instagram to explain how blown away she is by the simple message, as she hailed Beyonce as her “inspiration to be a singer”.

She wrote: “YALL. @beyonce BEY YON SAY wished me a happy birthday B****! I don’t know how to ACT. She is my inspiration to be a singer after seeing destiny’s child perform in the 5th grade… I LOVE YOU BEY! Thank You! Let me go drink some damn water (sic)”

The reaction comes after Lizzo told her fans the best gift they could give her for her birthday was a compliment about themselves. She told her followers: “It’s my birthday, the best gift would be… say something nice about yourself in my comments and shake that a** (sic)”
