Lizzo Admits Rihanna Sent Her Some NSFW DMs Applauding Her VMA Performance

Lizzo received plenty of praise for her debut MTV VMA performance, but the dance-heavy set also garnered acclaim from Rihanna, who wasn't even at the ceremony. During the former's interview with ET, the rising star admitted that her set at the Prudential Center in Newark prompted the pop titan to send her some compliments via Instagram.

"Listen, we need a video of Rihanna in the studio, period," Lizzo told ET's Keltie Knight at the MTV ceremony. "I am not going to bother her, 'cause I know what that feels like, so I am going to let her do what she ought to do. I love Rihanna. She DM'ed me to tell me that I performed good. She said, 'I f**ked the stage like it was my side b***h.' Don't get mad, Rihanna. I am not trying to blow up your spot, but that was a hard a** line. I might take that line!"

While Lizzo waits for a team-up between her and Rih to materialize, she did recently hit the studio with Justin Timberlake. Earlier this month, JT shared a video of the two in the lab and Lizzo said that she had all kinds of fun with the pop veteran. "Collaborations, for me, is about the energy and the relationship. I mean, it is Justin Timberlake, so I am not trying to be like, 'Ahh, I didn't have a good vibe with Justin Timberlake,'" she explained. "We had a lot of fun, we laughed a lot, he's got great energy," she added. "And so do I, and so, hmm, whatever we do will be made from love and made from fun. He gets lit in the studio. He goes crazy. He was like, "Turn up!' It's his world, we're all kind of living in it."
