Lizzo on getting the ‘Jeopardy!’ treatment: Mama, ‘I made it’
Lizzo just took a DNA test and turns out she’s 100% that “Jeopardy!” clue.
The chart-topping “Truth Hurts” singer and rapper marked her latest milestone on Monday when she became the answer to a clue on the classic trivia show.
The $600 clue, delivered by host Alex Trebek: “In 2019, this five-letter rap & R&B artist had the ‘Juice’ to be nominated for best new artist at the VMAs.”
And while contestant Diana responded correctly with the artist’s name, Lizzo’s social-media response was even better.
The self-care-preaching artist immortalized the moment on Instagram with a clip from the show and this bit of pith: “THIS AINT A DRILL,” she wrote. “IM A @jeopardy QUESTION MAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I MADE IT I LOVE YOU ALEX TREBEK.”
The moment certainly is a welcome reprieve for the breakout artist who is currently embroiled in a legal dispute with songwriters trying to get credit for her hit “Truth Hurts.”
Her shout-out to Trebek was also a sweet gesture given that the perennial host is still battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
