Lizzo Originally Wanted to 'Have a Career Like Bjork'

Lizzo steps out at the 92Y for a special “In Conversation” event on Friday (September 20) in New York City.

The 31-year-old “Truth Hurts” singer was honored at the event by the Office of the Public Advocate “for her activism on mental health, reproductive health, body positivity and so much more.”

Earlier this week, Lizzo was profiled by Billboard and she opened up about her career.

“I saw myself as a successful musician, and I visualized it like, ‘Man, I want to have a career like Björk, where I can put out albums and do exclusive shows and do a whole flute album like that bitch did,’” she said. “This sh-t is way different. I’m like, ‘VMAs, BET Awards?’ That is wild to me.”
