Lizzo Says Says Her LGBTQ Fans Are Qualified To Run The U.S.

The rapper hopes to inspire her LGBTQ fans to get politically active in the United States.

(AllHipHop News) Lizzo has shared an empowering message with fans, insisting it’s their differences that “make them great”.

The singer/rapper paused her set at Bustle’s Rule Breakers Festival in Brooklyn, New York to urge fans to never let anyone talk them down and convince them they won’t succeed.

“I just want to say right now because we have so many incredible people here tonight, I just want to encourage my young girls, my young women of color as well, my young queer fam, and gender nonconforming (fans), I want to let y’all know that you are more than qualified to run this country,” the 31-year-old told the crowd. “Do not let them make your identity what keeps you out of greatness, because that is what makes you great.”

The “Truth Hurts” hitmaker was introduced to the stage by politician Stacey Adams who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017.

She added: “This country has been run by the same kind of person for a long time, but the face of this country — you are America, this is what it looks like!”
