The LA Lakers hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves in an NBA game on Sunday night, but the only reason I know that is because Lizzo absolutely stole the show.
The ‘Truth Hurts’ singer gave a stellar court side interview, in which she professed her love for Timberwolves player Karl-Anthony Towns.
“Let me tell you something, both teams are great,” she said in the interview. “I’m personally cheering for 32.”
The interviewer later clarified if she meant Karl-Anthony Towns, to which she replied a sassy “mmhmm!”
“That’s my baby!”
The 8-time Grammy nominee eventually admitted that she hasn’t actually met the NBA player. But she’s Lizzo, I’m sure somebody could facilitate a meeting.
But her wee little crush on Karl-Anthony Towns isn’t the only thing Lizzo made headlines for during Sunday’s game.
In true Lizzo (real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson) fashion, she couldn’t help but bust a move when the Lakers cheerleaders danced to her hit song ‘Juice.’
The 31-year-old ‘Good as Hell’ singer twerked along to her own song before turning around to reveal her g-string.
Yes, a g-string. At a Lakers game.

Her dance moves and her underwear were blasted onto the arena’s jumbotron, giving the entire crowd a view of her behind.
Reactions to her twerking were mixed on social media. Some fans were in full support, wishing they had the confidence to twerk to their own song butt-naked at a Lakers game.

But other Twitter users weren’t so impressed with the singer’s actions, calling it “trashy” and inappropriate in front of children.
It’s official I’m done with Lizzo.. she’s super trashy twerking with her whole ass out at a Lakers game.. it’s a time and place for everything. Trying to stay famous should never ever come to this #keepitclassy

I’m glad Lizzo is doing her thing with her music. But no one wants to see ass cheeks at the Lakers game, doesn’t matter if they’re hers or some random person. just no. She’s going a little to far

Others even went so far as to call for her to be banned from attending future LA Lakers games.

Maybe she’s a confident queen? Or maybe she just took it too far this time? Either way, Lizzo sure knows how to keep her name on the tip of everyone’s tongue.Image: Getty Images / Allen Berezovsky
