VIDEO: Grammy-Winning Pop Star Lizzo’s Rise to the Top Chronicled in New Documentary
“Love, Lizzo” debuts Nov. 24 on HBONovember 14, 2022
“No matter what part of my story you come in at, I’m always chasing the music,” Lizzo says in the opening moments of the trailer for her upcoming HBO documentary.
“Love, Lizzo” gives fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of Melissa Jefferson, a.k.a. Lizzo, the trailblazing 34-year-old pop star, flutist, and rapper who came from humble beginnings and now has three Grammys to her name.
“When I was a little girl, I would write these pop songs, but I didn’t have the confidence in my voice,” Lizzo continues over clips of her performing on stage and recording her 2022 album “Special.” “Nobody was trying to sign a fat Black girl that rapped and sang and played the flute.”
“It took so much hard work to get to where I am today, but I found my voice. Now, when people see me on stage, they see themselves,” she concludes. “Music gave me the opportunity to be who I am.”
“Love, Lizzo” debuts Thursday, Nov. 24 on HBO Max.
