Lizzo has a lot keeping her busy these days. The rapper — who's quickly gaining fame for her body-positive, confidence-boosting verses — is now hosting a new music-centered MTV show, "Wonderland" (premiering Thursday, September 15), as well as continuing to perfrom live shows and write new music. And she has no intentions of slowing down.
"I feel good. I feel very accomplished, but you know it’s just not over," the 28-year-old rapper told Revelist on the phone just hours after co-hosting the 2016 VMA's pre-show alongside DJ Khaled and Charlamagne Tha God. "There’s more work to do."
For those just now catching on to Lizzo's unique voice, a brief introduction: Born Melissa Jefferson in Houston, the singer-rapper's debut solo album, "Lizzobangers," scored her a place on TIME's "Musical Acts to Watch" list in 2014, and she's been cranking out bold self-love anthems ever since. Revelist caught up with the self-identified "big grrrl in a small world" to talk about body positivity, the importance of female friendship, and Beyoncé.
