We already know Lizzo is an amazing singer, but who knew she was an artiste?
The “Truth Hurts” chart-topper told her 11.8 million followers Tuesday that she was coming to Art Basel and not just as a visitor.
Yes, Lizzo (real name Melissa Jefferson) announced that she will be creating art, in a most unusual way, with her famous derriere.
The 33 year old is seen in a studio with an easel and canvas on the floor. All that’s missing is a beret.
“Hey all, it’s your girl Lizzy Picasso here!” she says, adding that she will be creating a limited edition piece with American Express that she will sell during her appearance Saturday.
The pop star then begins painting a colorful globe and then dips her backside in blue paint, leans over to give the work the, well, pièce de résistance.
Lizzo’s concert will be at an undisclosed venue with Chris Robinson, but it’s sold out, reports Rolling Stone. But you can watch it live via Live-Now for $9.99.
Expect the unexpected: “Doing this at Art Basel really inspired me and my team to just get weird,” Lizzo told the media outlet, adding that she was excited to jump out of people’s screens into real life.
“[Zoom] isn’t the same because I don’t get to touch people. It’s got to be moving and sweating.”
The last time Lizzo was in Miami was right before the pandemic hit.
The Grammy winner put on an exclusive Super Bowl concert for SiriusXM and Pandora subscribers at The Fillmore Miami Beach in January 2020, with Harry Styles as special guest. Lizzo dedicated “Good as Hell,” to late basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who had just been killed in a helicopter crash.

“I can’t be at the largest sporting event of the year without mentioning the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna,” the Detroit native said at the time. “We have to be good to each other. We don’t know what tomorrow holds.”
