Lizzo Talks Hidden Talents & Her True Feelings About the Term 'Spirit Animal'

Rising Minneapolis-based act Lizzo sat down with Fuse at Music Midtown 2017 to find out just how well her backup dancers actually know her. Guessing random tidbits like her hidden talent, celebrity crush and favorite emoji, the game got interesting when the trio talked Lizzo's spirit animal.

Known for pushing messages of self-empowerment and body positivity, the 29-year-old "Water Me" performer has been steadily building her fanbase since the release of her 2013 debut album Lizzobangers. Her latest project, Coconut Oil, made Rolling Stone's list of Best Pop Albums of 2016.
