At the virtual 2020 BET Awards, Lizzo rocked the stage with not only a jaw-dropping performance but also her inspiring acceptance speech for the Best Female R&B/Pop Artist award.
According to E Online, she was quoted saying, "Thank you so much BET and thank you to all the wonderfully talented, beautiful Black women that I share this category with.
"Beyoncé, thank you for everything that you've done for Black culture. I have to say that three years ago, I sat in the audience at the BET Awards and I didn't win anything. But I still went home and felt like a winner."
Reminiscing upon the 2019 awards function, Lizzo performed Good As Hell and Truth Hurts but went home empty-handed even after being nominated for the same award.
However, much to the shock of her fans, Lizzo believes, "I didn't win anything and still felt like a winner” and “this year, I have the honor of winning this prestigious award, but I will always feel like a winner because as long as you're winning in life, that's the only trophy you need."
