AMAs 2019: 'What did you put inside?' Fans ask Lizzo after her tiny white purse becomes a huge hit on the red carpet
Lizzo's tiny Valentino bag stole all the thunder at the red carpet. Her fans chuckled at the sight and wondered what can you even fit in there.
Lizzo stunned onlookers in a one-shouldered neon orange mini-dress with her powerful voice and mesmerizing vocals as she sang 'Jerome' from her 2019 major-label release 'Cuz I Love You' at her American Music Awards 2019 debut on Sunday night in Los Angeles.
Nominated for three awards, including New Artist of the Year, the R&B and soul singer made quite a statement as a swirl of twinkling lights burst on the dark stage. "This light represents the love that you have for yourself. So shine bright," the singer told the audience. It was her micro-mini Valentino bag, however, that stole all the thunder earlier during her appearance on the red carpet. Her fans chuckled at the sight and wondered what can you even fit in there. The span of a happy relationship? A broken nail? Patience for a Tinder date?
"Hey, @lizzo. What did you put inside your tiiiiiny @MaisonValentino bag?" one Twitter user asked and another said, "Lizzo said she brought a bag big enough to hold all the f*cks that she gives. Talking about the custom bag designed by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, Lizzo revealed, "There's only three in the world." When asked what's inside, she said, "There's a lot! I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, some condoms..."
Many Twitter users went on to create memes on her bag, comparing it to their confidence, bank balance and self-esteem. "Lizzo carried the confidence I have left in our government to the #AMAs y’all!!!" one user posted and another said, "Wow I can't believe Lizzo carried my entire bank account in her purse tonight #AMAs." One tweet read: "Lizzo carrying our entire savings in her purse."
A series of funny tweets followed. "Ummm why is Lizzo carrying my will to live in her bag??" one Twitter user wrote and another posted, "Lizzo carried the amount of support Taylor Swift received from male musicians this year #AMAs." Another one took a subtle dig at the American football franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. "Obviously Lizzo was supporting the Cincinnati Bengals at the #AMAs with her orange dress and purse big enough to carry their wins this season," one tweet read.
Still not astounded? Wait till you hear this. Lizzo's purse ranges between $258 to $500, which seems a hell lot of money for a bag that doesn't even fit a pear inside. What's more, within just a few hours of its debut, Lizzo's tiny bag got its own Twitter account with the tag line: "Ya’ll h**s wanna know what’s inside me?" From Popeye's chicken sandwich to the last remaining f**ks, it had its own ideas. What do you think could be inside Lizzo's bag? Tell us in the comments below.
