Lizzo recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment, and she used the occasion to reveal just how much her life has been changed by Beyoncè. Very, very relatable.
During the segment, the pair performed Lizzo's huge tracks Good As Hell, Juice and Truth Hurts while driving around Los Angeles. They also have a chat about Bey's influence on Lizzo. As it turns out, Lizzo's flute, Sasha Floot, is named after Bey's alter ego Sasha Fierce.
Speaking to James, Lizzo explained, “When I was shy or when I didn’t think I was cool and when I was getting picked on, I would listen to Beyoncé in my bedroom and it would transport me. I would feel something. I would feel like my life is going to be better.”
She added, “I would just sing B'Day all the time, and I was just like I’m going to be a singer, I’m going to be a singer. The way she makes people feel is how I want to make people feel with music.” The pair have never met, but hopefully, that changes in the near future.
