Lizzo took the stage while reciting her idol’s “Work It” lyrics. “You are the brightest star in the universe,” she told Missy before breaking down in tears. “I watched you my entire life and I saw a superstar in you, but I also saw myself… You lived so boldly and so beautifully and so unapologetically and so out loud. You have no idea what you have done for so many Black girls.”
