Time magazine has named rapper Lizzo who catapulted to fame this year with feel-good, empowering songs like “Truth Hurts” and “Juice” as 2019’s entertainer of the year.
“Attending a Lizzo concert feels like worshiping at the church of self-love, if your preacher was a pop star living joyfully in a big black body, delivering a sermon of self-acceptance that’s as frank as it is accessible,” author Samantha Irby wrote for Time.
