Speaking on Andy Cohen’s show ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’, musical icon Lizzo said that it was “truly validating” to have “Rumors” added to President Obama’s yearly playlist: “I was outside of my body," the singer said
COHEN: “So on a scale of 1 to 10, how much did you freak out when Barack Obama put ‘Rumors’ on his list for his favorite song of 2021?
LIZZO: “My president! ha ha ha My forever President! Barack Obama might be one of the coolest people that's ever existed and lived, so to see that I was outside of my body, it is an honor, truly validates all this shit I've been doing for 70,000 years touring, and working my ass off to get recognized like that. Like, I just need a purple heart now.
COHEN: “Yes, you do, or a Medal of Freedom”
LIZZO: Let me get a Purple Heart, bro!”
