Lizzo Sliding In The DMs While Drunk Is All Of Us

Was it wine, sis? Hennessy? We need details!

Lizzo

If it's never been clear before, hopefully by now, it is understood that we love us some Lizzo around here. She is just refreshing in every way: not afraid to be herself and certainly not afraid to navigate her vulnerability in doing so. Most recently, she made headlines when she decided to indulge in a few libations and go ape shit on the world wide web, essentially completing our weekend. The Grammy-winner posted a video to TikTok with a simple warning for her 14.5 million followers:

Don’t drink and DM, kids.... for legal porpoises this is a joke

"Don't drink and DM, kids," the Grammy-winning singer captioned her video. Using the audio from TikTok star Tatayanna Mitchell, Lizzo revealed she set her sights on Chris Evans, of Avengers ultra-fame, in a clear attempt to shoot her shot. The internet was shooketh, because surely a woman of her caliber doesn't do the same thing us peasants do, right? Wrong! Sis went after her gold and struckkkkk.

In a follow-up video, Lizzo revealed an important update: Chris Evans replied to her which only made me secretly be like, OF COURSE he did, she's Lizzo (so people can stop acting like she isn't on his level...but that's another subject for another day.)!

Any who, the video continues:

"The reason I'm upset about this one is because I know I'm not going to be able to marry him. And honestly, it hurts me to the core. Because, damn papa, he a rare breed, no comparing. Like, Chris …"

And this isn't the first time the crooner has set her sights on Evans. Lizzo previously went public with her feelings back in 2019, after he re-shared a video of a young girl dancing to Lizzo's hit song "Juice", writing, "This kid is cooler than I could ever hope to be." She responded at the time with a follow-up tweet, writing to Evans, "Wow marry me" with a shrug face emoji.

Evans was a good sport with the sudden influx of attention, ultimately repling, "No shame in a drunk DM, God knows I've done worse on this app lol." He then followed her back.

Listen ladies, of course, the moment is in jest, but most importantly, it allows for the conversation to be had; the conversation that women, no matter who they are, are in the game of normalizing what it means to be confident enough to go after what, and who, they want. And if anyone knows confidence, it is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, who has made a career out of teaching us all to love ourselves (something she has struggled with in the past):

"Can you do me a HUGE favor?... no matter what you're doing right now... can you take a second and pause? Now.. Take 3 deep breaths... 1 ... 2 .... and a super deep breath on 3..... imagine pure love coming into your body and hold it right on your heart. Then say to yourself: "I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. AND YOU CAN DO ANYTHING." Repeat as many times as you need. Thank you, I really appreciate it."

We sure will, sis.
