Lizzo went to the Los Angeles Lakers game last night, where she made as much of a splash as Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello did that one time they made out for an entire basketball game and let courtside photographers capture it. The singer wore a shirt dress with the back cut out so everyone could see the black thong she was wearing with her fishnet stockings. Then she twerked for the Jumbotron. Which is the kind of brazen confidence and joie de vivre we should all take into 2020, honestly.

She also had beer, French fries, and friends who matched her in black during the rest of the game. It was a good time.

Obviously, some people on Twitter were upset about her showing her ass in a public setting and chose to ignore the radical statement she's making about self-love—but the much more relevant question is: Is it ever a good idea to sit in one of those germ-ridden plastic chairs with one's ass cheeks out?

Others are pointing out the hypocrisy in the criticism over Lizzo's look:

Lizzo spoke to Marie Claire about self-love and being an Absolut ambassador this past summer. "This is that moment for me, and it was really surreal and full circle growing up wanting to be an artist. Because I couldn’t see a big black girl in a magazine, and I didn’t see big black girls in commercials or getting deals and brand ambassadors," she explained.
