In addition to performing her smash hit “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell” during the live show, she was nominated for Best New Artist and Push Artist of the Year. Her song “Tempo” was nominated for Best Power Anthem and “Truth Hurts” for Song of Summer.
“I’m tired of the bullsh*t and I don’t have to know your story to know that you’re tired of the bulls*t, too,” Lizzo told the audience in a short motivational speech between the songs she performed during the show.
“It’s so hard loving yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back. Am I right? So I want to take this opportunity right now to just feel good as hell because you deserve to feel good as hell!”
Lizzo later gave a rousing self-empowerment speech during her performance
