Lizzo inspired by Madonna in 2019 BET Awards performance

Quinn Wilson (creative director): The performance [that night] gave us permission to do whatever the **** we wanted -- permission to be like, “Let’s have a big fat-ass onstage [at the MTV Video Music Awards].” The VMAs gave me confidence, but we wouldn't have been able to do that if I hadn’t said to BET, “I don’t care if it costs $20,000. We’re making a giant cake.”

Marko Monroe (costume designer/stylist): When we were in the beginning conversations, I was like: “Let’s pull the iconic book out.” We looked at Madonna’s [1984 MTV performance of “Like a Virgin”] as a reference. I thought, “What if we made it urban wear, but wedding?” Lots of tulle and lace but on hoodies.

Alexx Mayo(makeup artist): I thought: “What would you look like if you were the most glamorous bride?” I wanted eyelids that had depth on the outside, so when she closed her eyes you got this sense of, “Ooooooh, sparkly.”

I honestly hope that we start having full on black pop artists. 80s synth and all. We’ve always had one or two but never more.

I personally prefer showing off your crotch while rolling around the floor but maybe I’m out of touch these days!
