Lizzo Says She Got Help From Her Friends With Her New Album
While attending “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, Lizzo showed fans a presentation for her upcoming song “About Damn Time”.
James Corden asked Lizzo who she went to to get honest feedback.
“My friends. They’ll tell me. They’ll be like, ‘This ain’t it girl.’ Or once they start twerking, I’m like, ‘This is it,’” she replied. “And then, I play it for my mom. But she is last to hear it because she is a Virgo woman and she’s a harsh critic… but she cried, she loved it.”
