Lizzo sparked some serious controversy this week when she showed her entire backside while attending a Lakers game. The musician was wearing what appeared to be a t-shirt dress, but at one point she stood up and turned around to dance and exposed her whole butt to the crowd.
While some were upset about the incident, it seems the Houston Rockets loved it.
“Lizzo, we like your moves! You have an open invite to come home to Houston and dance with @OfficialCCD on the court any time!” the team tweeted at her on Wednesday.
Lizzo was quick with a hilarious response. “I’ll be there w/ bells on my booty,” she tweeted back at the team.
“Let us know when,” the Rockets replied.

One day after the Lakers game controversy, Lizzo took to her Instagram Story to address the haters.
“Your criticism has no effect on me, negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been I’m surrounded by love and I just want to spread that love – and also spread these cheeks. And you know what? If you really, really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it. ‘Cause kissing it makes it go away, I promise…it doesn’t really matter what goes down on the internet, nothing really breaks my joy.”
It’s been a big week for Lizzo, as she was named Time Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year on Wednesday. She spoke to the magazine about her musical journey, and learning to love her body.
“I’ve been doing positive music for a long-ass time,” she said. “Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing.
“Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream! How could we have guessed something like this would happen when we’ve never seen anything like this before?”
“I was experiencing a little bit of unhappiness. I was not happy with the way I felt to my body. I didn’t feel sexy, and I didn’t know when it was going to end. There were times when I would go onstage and be like, ‘Y’all, I’m not going to lie. I’m not feeling myself.’ Sometimes I’d break down and cry. Sometimes the audience would just cheer to make me feel better. I was getting sick a lot. I was like, What the f— is going on? I need to fall back in love with my body.”
