There’s something about Lizzo. The 31-year-old singer is one of those rare figures who oozes joy and positivity everywhere she goes.
She speaks out on the issues of self-care, loving the skin you’re in, and acceptance in all the ways the world needs. Her music is undeniably uplifting, bringing everyone that dose of escapism they’ve been so desperately craving. She’s truly a breath of fresh air.
Lizzo recently invited a very special guest to join her onstage. She surprised fans by getting Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin onstage with her during her “Like a Girl/Gigolo Game” show set.
Lizzo was going through the call-and-response routines with her dancers when Macaulay popped onstage and got right in there with them. Watching him do the silly dance as the crowd cheered him on was a simply magical moment for the concert-goers. The 39-year-old actor clearly had a blast up there, having shared the moment with fans on Instagram.
You might think that Lizzo and Macaulay Culkin are an unlikely duo, but you’d be wrong. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the 31-year-old singer, it’s that her music is for absolutely everybody.
Lizzo is in her moment and bringing us all along with her. The world is bopping along to her uplifting tunes that feel like the prescription we’ve been waiting for to battle the world’s generally depressing demeanor as of late.
Lizzo delivered her latest dose of joy to our lives when she brought Macaulay onstage during her “Like a Girl/Gigolo Game” show set. In the song, Lizzo references Macaulay, saying, “I don’t really need you, I’m Macaulay Culkin home alone.”
During the call-and-response bit, Lizzo has each of her dancers take center stage to do a dance. Macaulay snuck right in there until it was his turn to shine. “Hey Macaulay,” she called out, to which he responded, “Yeah.”
When she gives Macaulay the floor, he breaks out into his best sprinkler dance. As the crowd cheers him on, Lizzo decides to join in on the fun, doing the sprinkler with him as the cheers get louder.
“Make some noise for Macaulay Culkin, everybody!” Lizzo tells the cheering crowd as she brings him in for a big hug. “Love you, baby.” Macaulay was so pumped he danced offstage with the mic still in hand.
The friendship between Lizzo and Macaulay isn’t just because of the mention in “Like a Girl.” The two go back several years to when Macaulay made a cameo in the 2014 music video for her single “Faded.”
Ever since then, Macaulay has been a big supporter of Lizzo’s work. He regularly shouts out the singer on his social media pages, so we know he had a blast getting down on that stage with his dear friend.
Macaulay’s onstage pop-up isn’t the only exciting thing Lizzo has going on. The singer recently celebrated her single “Truth Hurts” tying with Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” for the longest-running No. 1 female rap song on the Billboard 100 Chart.
Lizzo has encouraged her fans to stream her hit single to try and get to the huge milestone, all the while still giving props to Iggy and Charli XCX for their work on “Fancy.” The tweet did get some shade from Iggy, however.
Iggy doesn’t seem too ready to let go of her crown. The rapper has been encouraging her fans to stream Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ duet “Señorita” to get it to bump “Truth Hurts” out of the No. 1 spot.
Iggy did later clarify that she’s only trolling. While she did push out a number of tweets about streaming “Señorita,” she insists that she isn’t serious and doesn’t care about keeping the Billboard record.
Whether or not Lizzo gets the achievement, she’s celebrating all the ones that she has gotten. When she hit No. 1 in September, she wrote:
“WE’RE NUMBER 1. THIS IS A W FOR ALL OF US. ANYBODY WHO EVER FELT LIKE THEY VOICE WASN’T HEARD. ANYBODY WHO FELT LIKE THEY WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH. YOU ARE. WE ARE. CHAMPIONS. I LOVE YALL 3 MUCH. LIZZBIANS UNITE 🌈☔️.”
You can’t help but be happy for Lizzo as her star rises. She’s worked hard to get where she is, and she’s not quick to forget those who helped her along the way. If she does take that No. 1 spot, it will be well deserved.
