Lizzo Explains Why She Is Terrified Of Beyonce Knowles
(AllHipHop News) Lizzo has had numerous opportunities to meet her idol Beyonce, but has always been too scared to do so.
The 31-year-old singer has enjoyed a stellar ride over the past few months, with her singles "Juice and Truth" "Hurts" becoming massive hits worldwide.
And while her new celebrity status means she has been able to rub shoulders with those she admires the most, the U.S. star admits she hasn't yet built up the courage to meet Queen Bey.
"I’ve never met Beyonce," Lizzo said during an interview with Australian radio presenter Tim Shiel. "I’ve had many opportunities because she was in the room or someone’s like ‘Have you met B? You want me to introduce you?’ And I always say ‘Nope!’ Because I’m so scared, like I’m so scared to meet her."
Asked what she will do when she eventually meets Beyonce, Lizzo laughed: "I don’t know what I’m gonna do!"
When it comes to meeting other singers, Lizzo has never really suffered from nerves, apart from when she got the opportunity to work with Missy Elliott.
But generally, she's able to maintain a cool composure when introduced to her peers.
"I don’t get nervous to talk to other famous artists," she said. "I think that by the time I’ve got to them, they know my music as well. I’ve never approached an artist and been like, ‘Hi, I’m a huge fan’. I always just stand far away with my eyes really wide and just not say anything. So now I’m in a position where they approach me and say, ‘Hey, I like your s##t’, and I’m like, ‘Woah, that’s exciting!’
