Lizzo Earns Backlash After Twerking in Thong at Timberwolves Game
The Minnesota superstar showed a questionable amount of skin during the Lakers cheerleader's routine to her song "Juice."
The Timberwolves lost to the Lakers in Los Angeles Sunday night, but it was Lizzo's court-side appearance that left many people talking afterwards.
At one point, Fox Sports North's Marney Gellner caught up with the Billboard chart-topper to ask who she was there to see.
Gellner: Who are you cheering for for?
Lizzo: I'm personally cheering for number 32.
Gellner: Karl-Anthony Towns? That's your guy?
Lizzo: That's my baby.
Gellner: You know him?
Gellner: Not yet.
Lizzo (in tune): New man on the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Later, Lizzo raised eyebrows and earned some serious online backlash during the Lakers cheerleaders halftime routine. As they danced to her hit song "Juice," she turned around -- revealing a cut-out back and her thong -- and twerked. The moment was briefly caught on the jumbotron before the camera quickly cut away.
Reactions have been polarizing, with many voicing their disgust while others have defended her.
Whatever people may think of her now, she'll likely be back in everyone's good graces come the Grammy's in February. She leads the way this year with eight Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best Urban Contemporary Album.
