Lizzo and Chris Brown were spotted backstage at the Millennium Tour last night.
In a video posted on Twitter, Lizzo is seen approaching Chris Brown, “Can I get a picture with you?” she asks, excitedly. “Because you’re my favorite person in the whole f***ing world.”
They were also seen posing together for photos.
Lizzo and her girls hung out at the Millennium Tour, which featured Bow Wow, Omarion, Soulja Boy, and others.
The tour resumed after being put on hold for a year due to COVID-19 restrictions. The show was packed with surprises during their stop in Los Angeles. Snoop Dogg, Jermaine DuPri, and Chris Brown were among the special guests brought out by Bow Wow.
Brown was rumoured to be under investigation earlier this year after a lady said he physically abused her at his house. Last year, a s**ual assault complaint against Brown was also dismissed after the singer reached an out-of-court settlement. In 2018, an unknown woman named Jane Doe filed a complaint against Brown stating that she was raped many times by a guy named Lowell Grissom Jr. while attending a party at Brown’s home in February 2017. Brown was found guilty of felony assault in 2009 after a confrontation with Rihanna as the duo was on their way to the Grammy Awards. Several domestic abuse organisations accused him of “blaming” Rihanna for his assault on her years later, in 2017.
The interaction between Lizzo and Chris Brown has caused a lot of social media outrage.
“Lizzo calling Chris brown her favorite person in the whole f***ing world IM PISSED OFF MAN,” one person wrote.
Others pointed out that other artists who have worked with Brown in recent years have not faced the same backlash as Lizzo.
“People being outraged at Lizzo’s love for Chris Brown while so many other artists be out here supporting/collaborating with him with no backlash, makes zero sense. Don’t make me go down the list of people…Just say you don’t like her,” wrote another.
Lizzo recently presented a TED Talk about twerking. The singer addressed her issues with body acceptance during the 13-minute “TED twerk,” which was initially taped in August, and stated, “Through the movement of twerking, I discovered my a** is my greatest asset.”
The singer made a comeback earlier this year with the song “Rumors,” a collaboration with Cardi B. “The result is a brilliant return from Lizzo that combines her signature sense of fun with some well-placed spikiness,” NME stated in their review of the song.
