Lizzo brought the house down at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards Monday night (August 26, 2019), and apparently, Rihanna loved her performance.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight after the show, Lizzo revealed that she got a DM from Rihanna almost immediately after her medley performance of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell.”

“She DM'ed me to tell me that I performed good,” Lizzo said. “She said I fucked the stage like it was my side bitch.”

Then, as if concerned that maybe Rihanna wouldn't want her message getting out there, Lizzo quickly added, “Don't get mad, Rihanna. I am not trying to blow up your spot, but that was a hard-ass line! I might take that line.”

Lizzo is currently on tour in support of Cuz I Love You. She’ll spend the first half of the fall stopping in major North American cities — including two nights at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on September 22nd and 24th and three nights at the Hollywood Palladium on October 18th, 20th and 21st — before she heads off to Europe.
