Lizzo is throwing it back for democracy.
The “Good as Hell” singer took to Instagram on Tuesday (Oct. 13) as her patriotic alter ego “Auntie Sam” to share a video twerking for the stars and stripes. “Auntie Sam out here doin what she gotta do to get y’all to vote!” she captioned the clip.
Lizzo also shared another photo as Auntie Sam, and took a more serious tone in the caption to educate her fans on the importance of voting ahead of the Nov. 3 general election. “Hey YOU. Have you felt the same disconnect from this country? Have YOU felt like this nation is your house but not your home?” she asked. “It’s because we are on stolen land trying to live within laws written by white men FOR white men in 1787. I see YOU using your power of protest and your freedom of speech. I see YOU unlearning the narrow scope of our history and seeking the truth. ITS TIME TO USE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE. WE NEED YOU. DID YOU KNOW? -Approximately four in ten (40%) of eligible voters didn’t turn out to vote in 2016 ??”
She also shared that fans can text LIZZOBEVOTING to 26797 to register to vote, confirm their polling location, and get election reminders.
