She may have been robbed of the Best New Artist Award but, Lizzo gave a  VMA debut to remember. Taking the stage in front of a giant inflatable butt, she opened with her top 10 hit “Truth Hurts” before leading into “Good as Hell.”

“I’m tired of the bullshit,” said Lizzo. “And I don’t have to know your story to know that you’re tired of the bullshit too… I wanna take this opportunity right now to just feel good as hell ’cause we deserve to feel good as hell.”

With the VMA’s airing next Monday, MTV has announced some of their performers for this years award ceremony. This year’s list includes Lizzo, Lil Nas X, Normani, Ozuna, and A$AP Ferg Big Sean, Lizzo Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello and a vanguard performance from the music legend Missy Elliott.

Houston hottie Megan Thee Stallion is set to hit the preshow this year. Airing live from the Prudential Center on Monday, August 26th. Not too sure if this year award show will be worth watching besides the performances from Normani, Lizzo, and Missy. The rest of the performers does not really give us a solid reason to tune in. I miss the excitement the VMA’s used to have. Lately, the VMA’s have been very lackluster. Hopefully, I’m wrong about this year but we shall see Next Monday.

Speaking on the collab, Grammy winner Morton said:

“I’ve always been a fan of JoJo, even back in the TRL days. Her talent was always out of this world. I knew that I wanted to make ‘Say So’ a duet and wanted to make sure it was with a voice I truly believed in. I saw that she was free and clear from her previous label complications, and I jumped at a chance to work with her! I reached out and she was down. She flew down to New Orleans and it all flowed so perfectly.”
