This week, Lizzo landed her very first cover of Billboard magazine, and during her photo shoot, she explained why that feat meant to much to her, calling the experience “cool as f–k.”
Lizzo confesses to Billboard that when she first found out she was going to appear on the cover, she couldn’t believe it was happening.
“That’s…a big deal. It’s a fucking honor and only the big dogs really make it to the cover. I never really saw myself as a big dog,” she says.
“To be on the cover of Billboard means that I’m really doing a damn thing,” Lizzo continues. “It’s cool as fuck. It doesn’t just mean that your music is good, because I’ve always known that my music is good. But it means that your music is reaching the world and your music is making a mark, not only with numbers, but with impact.”
“I just hope the pictures are cute,” she adds with a chuckle.
