Lizzo tucked into a juice box of tequila and ginger ale and told Busy Philipps about that time she slid into Drake’s DMs while tipsy on that “Juice” and about trying to match with John Mayer on a dating app on Monday night’s Busy Tonight. “I used to slide into DMs,” she told the host when asked if she might try the tactic to land her dream collab with Adele. But then she remembered that time she slid into Drake‘s and realized it was a bad idea.
“I slid into Drake’s DMs, but it was bold,” she said. “I was drunk and I was just like, ‘Let’s just see if this motherf—er can sing.’ And I sent him a DM…this was a while ago. And then I unsent it, and then he followed me after that.” Lizzo also talked about being on the celeb dating app Raya and trying to match with John Mayer, which “didn’t work.” After Philipps played a video of Lizzo twerking over a bowl of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, the pair dished about the rapper working with Missy Elliott on her album, as well as the time she taught Prince about the custom Purple Rain emoji. “I was like, ‘Does Prince know he got his own emoji?’ And he was like, ‘he does now.'”
With her Cuz I Love You album finally in stores, Lizzo also joked that she’s written four other albums in the time she was waiting for Cuz to come out. “I had a trap album, I had a pop album, I had like a smooth jazz album featuring Seal… we had to shelve it, it’s in the vault,” she laughed. The crush talk continued unabated, though, as Lizzo talked about flirting with Trevor Noah, her crush on former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama and a possible throuple with Busy and her husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein.
