But it's not like this "overnight success" was only a year in the making. For a decade, the artist had been working on her music and trying to break out in the entertainment industry. On New Year's Eve, Lizzo remembered the start of the decade, which was much more difficult than where she is now.
In 2009, Lizzo was working odd jobs, living out of her car, and had just lost her father. Now she's nominated for eight Grammys, has performed on countless awards show stages, headlined SNL, and was Time magazine's Entertainer of the Year. Plus, she's buying her mom a new house.
