Lizzo can now add Emmy winners to her growing resume. The Houston native is halfway there I Status after winning the Outstanding Competition Program Emmy for her Amazon Prime Video series, Watch out for the Big Grrrls.
While delivering her acceptance speech at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night, Lizzo said she was “very emotional” as she celebrated her on-screen performance. “When I was a little girl, I just wanted to see myself in the media. Someone fat like me, black like me, pretty like me,” Lizzo gushed. “If I could go back and say something to little Lizzo, I’d say, ‘You’re going to see that person, but damn it has to be you,'” she added.
This was Lizzo’s first nomination and first win at the Emmys. The Tempo artist is currently on a world tour for her album Special, which debuted July 15.
