Everything May Be Bad, But Lizzo’s Interview On ‘The Project’ Is 10 Minutes Of Pure Joy

"I'm hungover, this is just pure tequila coming out of my pores."

Now, a lot of the time, TV interviews with musicians can be cringeworthy, awkward — or sometimes just downright terrible. But occasionally, they can deliver the goods.

American singer Lizzo wrapped up her wildly popular Australian tour over the weekend — you know, the one which saw 12,000 people in the online queue to get tickets for her Sydney Opera House show — but before she left our shores, she dropped by The Project last night for a quick chat.

The resulting 10 minutes goes a long way to explaining why Lizzo has become so beloved: she spends most of the interview laughing, throwing cheeky shade at Project hosts Peter Hellier (“I don’t think you should be out here twerking. I don’t think that’s your thing sis”) and Fitzy (who she called a sexy kangaroo), and talking about her intense love of Beyoncé.

“I think i’ve seen every Beyoncé concert ever,” she told the panel. “I saw Destiny’s Child in Walmart when I was in the fifth grade, that was the first time I ever saw her perform. From then on I believe I’ve been to every concert – besides  the On The Run tour, because I was on my own tour.”

At one point she pauses to fan herself as she’s been laughing too hard: “I’m fucking hot bitch hold up — I don’t know y’all making me laugh and shit. I’m hungover, this is just pure tequila coming out of my pores.”

Predictably, viewers became obsessed.
