Lizzo: ‘Social distancing will bring us closer together as a people’


Lizzo shares an uplifting message with fans when she appeared on The iHeart Living Room Concert For America on Sunday (March 29, 2020) night, hosted by Elton John.

The Truth Hurts hitmaker joined stars including Mariah Carey, Billie Eilish, Alicia Keys, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, who all performed on the broadcast via live link, as they self-isolate amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Addressing viewers, Lizzo reflected on the global health crisis, insisting, “We can not let this tear us apart!”

She said: “The social distancing is something that we’re doing for our health, but we have to come together closer as a people. Call a friend that you haven’t spoken to in a while. Call a family member.

“This is a very real pandemic. I know we watch TV and we see a lot of fear on television, but we can’t let the fear spread faster than the virus. We have to let love spread.”

During Lizzo’s appearance, Rocket Man hitmaker Elton also gushed over the star, telling her she inspired him with her music.

“When anything goes wrong in my life, I always blame it on my juice!” he hilariously sang to her, referencing her hit 2019 tune, Juice.
