Award-winning singer Lizzo, thanked Beyoncé for everything she has done for black culture as she accepted her Best Female R&B/Pop Artist accolade at the 2020 BET Awards.
The ceremony was held virtually on Sunday night due to the global pandemic health crisis. Lizzo pre-recorded a video message from her home, where she praised Beyoncé, who won the Humanitarian, and BET Her prizes on the night.
“Thank you so much BET, and thank you to all the wonderfully-talented, beautiful black women I share this category with. Beyoncé, thank you for everything you have done for black culture.”
“Three years ago, I sat in the audience and didn’t win anything, but I still went home and felt like a winner. Last year, I performed on the main stage - I didn’t win anything, and I still felt like a winner. I will always feel like a winner because as long you’re winning in life, that’s the only trophy you need.”
