The situation became a little awkward on Easter Sunday when Lizzo began showing off her moves on Diddy’s Instagram Live.
The 50-year-old song producer and artist is hosting the “world’s biggest dance a thon” on his social account. So he raises money to serve healthcare workers in deprived regions among the coronavirus outbreak.
Diddy was join by many famous celebrities, including his ex, Jennifer Lopez, and her new fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, as well as Lizzo.
When the “Truth Hurts” singer joined the competition, things got a little racy on the religious celebration as she started to twerk while Diddy’s sons danced on his account.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa!” Diddy yell, hurrying into the screen and stopping the music. “It’s Easter Sunday, let’s play something a little more family-friendly.”
Lizzo looked agitated, speaking, “Sorry, sorry, sorry! Let’s do something fun. Well, don’t play that kind of… play something I can bop to.”
Diddy responds to what song would be suitable, and Lizzo gave up a suggestion, saying, “Play ‘Juice’ by Lizzo!”
Notwithstanding Diddy closes down Lizzo mid-twerk, he didn’t appear to have trouble when model Draya Michele reveals her own booty-poppin’ moves some hours later.
“You killed that!” Diddy told Draya. “I think that was one of the top performances.”
Followers weren’t happy with the contrarieties, shouting out the rapper in the comments segment.
One follower wrote “IF LIZZO CANT DO IT DRAYA CANT DO IT EITHER,” while one commenter note, “Ok… i get annoyed with lizzo sometimes but bruh, this was simply unfair.”
Another one added “But Lizzo was a ‘no’ and embarrassed????? hmmm I’m a little confused now…We need to keep the same energy- I don’t like this.”
Explaining that there was no online drama, Lizzo later repost Diddy’s statement from his own Instagram Stories, supporting his decision.
He said “There’s one thing that I want to make clear. My queen, my sister Lizzo, when I stopped the music it was ’cause it had a lot of curses in there, not ’cause she was twerking,” he said. “She’s one of the best twerkers in the world. Let’s keep that clear. It wasn’t about twerking. You’re allow to twerk on Easter. There was a lot of cursing in the record. And I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now, you understand? So that’s why I stopped the record. Lizzo, we love you and everybody stop looking for the negative, look for the positive!”
