Taking to the stage, the 32-year-old award-winning artist asserted, “If you are at home watching this and you are thinking about changing yourself to feel worthy, then this is your sign to remain true to who you are. Let me tell y'all something. When people try to suppress something, it's normally because that thing holds power. They are afraid of your power. There's power in your voice, whether it's through music, protest or your right to vote. Use your power, use your voice, and refuse to be suppressed.”

The absolute best acceptance speech of the night!  Push-up on suppression like dynamite.”

One person stated, “She is such an impressive young lady. I hope her peers vote!” One fan praised Lizzo’s outfit choice and asserted, “Lizzo you look beautiful that dress is (fire).” Another trolled the singer for her dress and said, “Her dress should say DIET.”
