Lizzo Takes On Spicy Chicken Wings While Talking About Her Musical Process

The pop diva appeared on ‘Hot Ones.’

Lizzo appeared on Hot Ones, the series where celebs answer questions while eating increasingly hot chicken wings. As usual, the singer-songwriter gave us everything we needed.

Rocking leopard print, dark pink hair and wearing her athleisure brand Yitty,  she opened up about choosing the hit singles from her albums and revealed she originally  wasn’t a big fan of her Billboard Hot no. 1 song  “About Damn Time.”

“I’m so bad at picking singles for myself because I think everything I do is incredible, I really do,” she said with a laugh.

She explained about the song, “The ‘I’ve been so down and under pressure, I’m way too fine to be this stressed’—it’s like, hello! We needed that right then when I dropped that motherf****r.”

Lizzo also said being classically trained on the flute helps her as a pop artist, “I make pop music, but I like to think I make really musical, interesting pop music that I think a lot about the composition. Understanding the time signature you’re in — harmony and dissonance and rhythm and cadence — I think it is important.”

The spiciness of the chicken wings, which were vegan, got a bit overwhelming for the pop diva—she even had to call on the ancestors! Watch the hilarity below:
