Lizzo Wears 'VOTE' Dress, Makes Statement on Suppression at Billboard Music Awards 2020 (Video)

Lizzo hits the stage in a “VOTE” dress while accepting an award at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which aired on Wednesday (October 14) and took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old singer won the award for Top Song Sales Artist and she used her speech to make a political statement.

“I just want to say, I’ve been thinking a lot about suppression and the voices that refuse to be suppressed,” Lizzo said. “I wonder, would I be standing here right now if it weren’t for the big Black women who refused to have their voices be suppressed? I just want to say… if you’re at home watching this, you are thinking about changing yourself to feel worthy, this is your sign to remain true to who you are.”

“When people try to suppress something, it’s normally because that thing holds power. They’re afraid of your power. There’s power in who you are. There’s power in your voice. So whether it’s through music, protests or your right to vote, use your power, use your voice and refuse to be suppressed, Lizzo added.

FYI: Lizzo is wearing a Christian Siriano dress.
