By design, the VMAs are a night full of highlights, but when it comes to viral moments, Lizzo was perhaps the performer to delivered the most. First she took the stage backed by a giant inflatable butt, then in the middle of “Good As Hell,” she busted out out a bedazzled Patrón bottle and enjoyed its contents.
Lizzo took a swig from the bottle and then took a minute to preach about self-love, saying, “I’m tired of the bullsh*t, and I don’t have to know your story to know that you’re tired of the bullsh*t, too. It’s so hard trying to love yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back, am I right? So I want to take this opportunity right now to just feel good as hell. ‘Cause you deserve to feel good as hell. We deserve to feel good as hell!”
It was a moment, a moment that people of the internet fell quickly and madly in love with. There were many reactions, but Lizzo and the bottle were most widely and accurately described as a mood.
Check out some reactions below, and watch Lizzo’s VMA performance of “Good As Hell” and “Truth Hurts” here.

Honestly it was very hard to wake up today and then I thought of how @lizzo chugged from a bedazzled patron tequila bottle in the middle of her performance last night and decided I have no choice but to get this bread… pic.twitter.com/oCqmD53nod
