Lizzo delivered an uplifting acceptance speech after winning her first Grammy on Sunday.
Lizzo took home the award for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts” at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards.
“I want to say this whole week I was lost in my problems and then in an instant all that can go away and your priorities really shift. Today all my little problems I thought were as big as the world were gone. I realized people are hurting right now,” Lizzo said.
She also thanked artists for “making music that moves people again, that liberates people.”
“If I hadn’t reached out, I wouldn’t have met my best friends,” Lizzo continued. “I don’t know where I would be right now — sleeping in my car?” Before leaving the stage she shouted out to the audience, “Lift each other.”
Lizzo entered the 62nd annual Grammy Awards with the most nominations — eight, including nominations in all four top categories.
She grabbed three awards– best pop solo performance for “Truth Hurts,” best urban contemporary album for Cuz I Love You (Deluxe) and best traditional R&B performance for “Jerome.”
The singer opened up the awards show with a short tribute to Kobe Bryant, who died on Sunday in a helicopter crash. She also performed a medley of her hits, “Cuz I Love You” and “Truth Hurts.”
