Lizzo Loves Her Some Kylie Minogue

"That new album was fire. Fire!"

What music gets Lizzo pumped and ready for Pride season? Her answer is simple: “Anything by Kylie Minogue!”

“That new album was fire,” she says. “Fire! Y’all heard it? You’ve heard it.”

NewNowNext sat down with the “Tempo” singer and Playboy queen to talk all things Pride season, “big, black, and beautiful” drag queens, and her huge LGBTQ fanbase.

Lizzo performs at the Kentucky Pride Festival in Louisville in 2018.

Between snack breaks, Lizzo sang the praises of the queer community. She also dug deep into her experience as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10, revealing that she didn’t get her first glance of Mama Ru on set until she walked down the runway—and that she’s totally down to reprise her role as a guest judge.

“I’m trying to come back, Ru,” she adds. “Call ya girl. I’m here!”

Watch the full interview below, and give ’Cuz I Love You, Lizzo’s newest studio album, a listen.
 

RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays at 9/8c on VH1.
