Lizzo cannot be stopped. Not even when her debut set at this weekend's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was riddled with technical difficulties.
For the uninitiated, Lizzo — a Detroit native, powerhouse vocalist, flutist, and body-positivity advocate — is having a big moment. Leading up to the release of her major label debut, 'Cuz I Love You (due out April 19), the 30-year-old has been on an electrifying, twerk-heavy press circuit which has resulted in viral cover songs (Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow" is pretty solid), flute solos, and intimate storytelling. To set it all off, she also turned the other cheek, both of them, in a Playboy spread last month.
Keeping with her ass-thetic — and while wearing a cheeky, metallic one-piece — Lizzo's unstoppable booty power carried the singer through her Coachella set on Sunday night, which was plagued with sound issues starting as early as two songs in. The sound abruptly cut out during "Worship," forcing the singer to endure glitches as she live-sampled Aretha Franklin's "Respect." And it didn't stop there.
They'll look back on @lizzo's #coachella set as a masterclass for how to power through every technical and audio mishap possible like a boss and still put on an incredible performance. Respect. Someone owes her a *major* apology— cameron adams (@cameron_adams) April 15, 2019
