Thissssss is an interesting one!! I love when you all bring interesting topics to the website so thank you very very much because I am so in the dark lately.
So we all know Lizzo and Harry struck up an adorable industry relationship back when he covered her song “Juice” at the BBC Live Lounge in 2019. I don’t believe they were in contact or friends before that, but of course I could be VERY wrong.
I love Lizzo! I think she’s stunning and bold and revolutionary and has personality for days. She feels very fresh, like something new age and full of innovation, yet her act also feels redolent of an older time, exactly like Harry. In that way, they mirror each other a lot.
I love “Juice” you just can’t not dance to that song, it’s such a phucking groove, so I understand why Harry felt moved enough to cover it. And she seemed quite receptive to the idea of Harry covering her song because she turned right around and covered Harry’s “Adore You” at the BBC Live Lounge which is too cute for words. I wish I was apart of this friendship! haha
Then they joined forces in January 2020 in Miami, FL where Harry joined her onstage to perform “Juice” for SiriusXM Radio.
Then we saw their adorable interactions at the Brit Awards in February 2020 before Covid literally ruined everything.
Here’s Lizzo talking about doing a collab with Harry in February 2021!
And finally we of course saw them supporting each other at the 2021 Grammy’s earlier this year!
Now on to the reason we’re all here. Apparently on April 8, 2021, Lizzo did an IG livestream where she named all the 1D boys and explained whether she had met them or not. She also made the distinction that she knows Harry and has met Niall and Louis, but when she got to Zayn’s name, she smirked very pointedly (some might even say KNOWINGLY) and then sipped her wine??
Uh, wtf did that mean?! And her friends sort of snickered too lmaooo.
Hmm…that intrigued the hell out of me! I’m not saying anything, but her smile struck me as saying “if you know, you know” especially because she kept drawing the distinction that she KNOWS Harry, which we already knew.
Anyway, would love to hear your thoughts on this. I don’t think anyone is claiming it means anything in particular, but then again…if you know, you know.
A few people mentioned how this reminded them of how Stevie Nicks singled Zayn out in regards to Harry as well. And so did Clare Uchima, Harry’s former keyboardist who followed Zayn and none of the other 1D boys in December 2017.
