Last year, the MTV Video Music Awards didn’t quite seem to capture the music that was really happening at the moment.
But the 2019 VMAs — held for the first time in New Jersey, at Newark’s Prudential Center — rectified that early on with a performance by one of the It Girls of summer 2019: Lizzo. Serving big-girl realness, the breakout artist got everyone — including New Jersey native Queen Latifah — on their feet.
She sang “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell,” spreading her empowering vibes while showcasing her soulful vocals — with afro’ed background dancers and in front of a giant blow-up butt.
Taking a swig from a bedazzled bottle of Patron, the breakout star bellowed: “Love yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back. You deserve to feel good as hell.” By the end of it all, there was no doubt that she was “100 percent that bitch.”
