Lizzo recently received a call from her manager about a wonderful new opportunity, but she wasn’t able to take the phone. Lizzo ignored the call for Emmy nominations because she was editing a TikTok video.
Lizzo ventured into reality television without knowing how well it would be accepted, and now Lizzo is nominated for an Emmy, actually, several. The Grammy winner has taken the music industry by storm as she leads the Pop-Rap field, but her Amazon Prime reality series Watch Out for the Big Grrrls has also been a triumph, earning six Emmy nominations this year.
Lizzo spoke with Deadline about her latest success, and she described where she was when she received the wonderful news. Lizzo informed the magazine that her manager phoned her while she was editing a TikTok video. She didn’t think it was a big deal, so she went back to work on her video.
“I ignored the call and kept editing. ‘I gotta finish this TikTok before I get on this plane.’ Then he called my assistant, and he was like, ‘Put her on the phone now!’ I found out that way. So that was pretty awesome.”
While many people expect her show to win at least one award, Lizzo says she’s not worried about crafting her acceptance speech. Lizzo went on to say that she is more enthusiastic about what she is going to wear because it was her first Emmys red carpet.
“I think I’m more excited about what I’m going to wear. Like, it’s just a big deal to be there. This is going to be my first Emmys, my first Emmys carpet. I want to feel like the belle of the ball. So, I think I’m more excited about planning my look than a speech.”
The artist also stated that her objective was not to “make a show,” but rather to capture her own journey in discovering “raw, untapped talent.” However, Lizzo has been nominated, and supporters will be pleased knowing this. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more information.
