Lizzo paid tribute to Kobe Bryant during the Grammy Awards where she won three accolades.

“In an instant, all that can go away and your priorities can really shift, today all my little problems I thought were as big as the world is gone,” she said when she collected her Best Pop Solo performance gong.

She also took a moment to thank artists for making music that moves and liberates people.
