Lizzo Doesn’t Watch the Show, But Would Totally Be the Next ‘Bachelorette’
Musician and actress Lizzo is living her “full zhuzh.” Although, we’re not really sure what that means, but according to her recent interview, we think it means she’s loving life right now. And why wouldn’t she? She has a hot new album, and a role in the hot new movie, Hustlers.
But what we find really interesting about Lizzo is her ideal conditions for being on The Bachelorette. Grab hold of your phone (or laptop or tablet or whatever device you’re using) because what she said may shock you.
Lizzo discusses becoming ‘The Bachelorette’
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lizzo opened up about the possibility of appearing on The Bachelorette. Just to be clear, she hasn’t been asked, but thinks it would be a cool idea.
“If I was the Bachelorette,” said Lizzo, “it would be the coolest season ever. The men would have to be naked and they would have to wear little thing briefs and they would have to feed me grapes.”
Further pushing her point, she concluded: “It would be mandatory to get my p*ssy eaten at least once on the whole season,” Lizzo said, “and it would have to be filmed. It can be blurred, but I’d want people to know. The kids have to learn.”
Lizzo hasn’t had good luck with love
The reason she’d consider The Bachelorette might be because she hasn’t had very good luck with men. She recently ended a relationship with a person she referred to as “the evil Gemini,” but says she now in the celebratory phase of their breakup. Meaning, she’s happy to be single.
In the past, when she’s let men into her life, they let her down. A notable lyric from her songs sum up her feelings around men nicely.
“Why are men great til they got to be great,” the song says. Lizzo explained that her experience with men is that the idea of them is great, until you give them any power in your life, and then they take advantage of that, and let you down.
According to Lizzo, after the newness of a relationship fades, you find out that “you’re dealing with either a f**kboy, or you’re dealing with an ancient mother**ker, or you’re dealing with someone that actually doesn’t have your best interests at heart, or doesn’t actually love you.”
Lizzo is happy being single
Luckily for her, Lizzo doesn’t mind being single at all. In fact, she celebrates it. Lizzo explained how she’s learned to be in a relationship with herself, and be happy. “Cozy up with yourself and watch your favorite TV show. Talk to yourself out loud. Put on outfits and compliment yourself. Be the partner to yourself that you want.”
But with her busy career, sometimes it’s hard for Lizzo to find time for self-care. “I’m trying to find the balance,” she told Rolling Stone. “‘It’s all about the balance’ has been my mantra this year.”
Lizzo doesn’t need The Bachelorette to be happy, and perhaps that’s why she gave such a silly answer. She’s happy to be doing her thing, making her music, and acting in roles she loves. Like the role of Liz, a flute-playing stripper in the movie Hustlers. Lizzo said the role was “like it was literally written for [her].”
Lizzo’s going to keep on doing her thing, regardless of what people say. As she explains her life, “everything is a toast, everything is ‘let’s go, girl.'”
