Lizzo hit the stage Saturday (Dec. 4) in Miami as the headliner for American Express’ last UNSTAGED concert of the year. Donning a white leotard adorned with shiny silver sequins, the “Good as Hell” singer put on an electric, racy performance, weaving through her hits, twerking, and name-dropping her celebrity crushes — of course.
At one point during the show, Lizzo performed her rendition of Erykah Badu’s 1997 anthem “Tyrone.” In cell phone footage captured by Rolling Stone, Lizzo gyrates along the stage, and flips Ms. Badu’s lyrics — playfully calling out her love interests Chris Evans and Drake.
“Maybe I should call Chris Evans/ so Captain America can put another bun up in my oven,” she sang.
“Or maybe I should call back Drake/ so he can cry in the pussy/ dive in the pusssy/ hey, hey, hey/ I guess I gotta call Tyrone,” she continued emphatically.
Earlier this year, Lizzo joked that she was pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby on TikTok. And the 40-year-old actor played along by sending her a DM which read, “Hi, just heard about our little bundle of joy. my mother will be so happy lol.”
On her hit song “Rumors” featuring Cardi B, Lizzo dedicates a line in the song to Drizzy where she sings, “No, I ain’t fuck Drake yet.” In August, she revealed on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! — guest hosted by Niall Horan — that Drake heard the song and reached out to her. “I have heard from Drake,” she said at the time. “But that’s all I’m gonna say on that.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone weeks before her show in Miami, Lizzo told the publication that performing at Art Basel inspired her and her team to “just get weird,” “I feel like we have the opportunity to just step outside of our comfort zones and make something super interactive,” she said. “And I’ve never done anything like this before.”
