Lizzo Was Thrilled To Find Out Rihanna Approved Of Her BET Awards Performance

Lizzo is hard not to love. She has bangers like “Juice” and “Truth Hurts,” and she has a vibrant and instantly endearing personality. Rihanna certainly seems to agree: During Lizzo’s performance at the BET Awards this weekend, Rihanna was seen giving some wholehearted applause. When Lizzo found out about that, she was floored, and she’s shared plenty of reactions to the news since then.

Lizzo first retweeted a video of Rihanna enthusiastically applauding during Lizzo’s performance that was captioned, “Rihanna watching Lizzo is a MOOD.” Lizzo then shared her own tweet, featuring a photo of Rihanna in the crowd, pointing at Lizzo in approval, and another of an overjoyed Lizzo waving to the audience. She wrote, “That’s it… that’s the tweet.” She also shared video of the moment on Instagram and wrote, “RIHANNAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.”

It’s been a big week for Lizzo on TV: On Monday, she paid tribute to Sister Act 2 with a super entertaining performance of “Juice” during the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Rihanna’s been having some fun lately as well, as she recently spent an afternoon with Seth Meyers and enjoyed having some drinks on TV for Late Night.
