On Monday evening (Aug. 26), Lizzo showcased her one-of-a-kind talents with a medley of her hits “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell.” Her sermonic selections at the MTV Video Music Awards injected viewers with empowerment and self-confidence to conquer the week.
The performance garnered reactions from the Houstonian’s supporters, praising the vocalist for her mission in body positivity. “It’s so hard to love yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back, am I right?” she said onstage. “So I wanna take this opportunity right now to just feel good as hell, because you deserve to feel good as hell. We deserve to feel good as hell!”
