Taylor Swift received some love from Lizzo during her tour launch in Australia on Friday (July 14).
While speaking up to the audience at Perth’s RAC Arena, the “About Damn Time” singer spotted a concert-goer holding up a sign that read, “I Chose You Over Taylor Swift (Heart) Can I Get a Hug.” Lizzo thanks her fans for coming to see her performance before addressing the kind message.
“I’m going to start by saying thank you for coming to my show,” the pop-rap star said. “I know tickets are expensive to everybody’s shows, so it means the world to me that you’re here.”
She added, “Taylor Swift is amazing as well. And you don’t have to choose, because I will get you tickets to Taylor Swift! I’m just kidding.”
Lizzo then asked the audience if Swift, currently on her The Eras Tour in North American stadiums, had previously toured in Australia.
“Did she already play? When does she come here? She’s not coming here?” Lizzo asked before joking, “How did you choose me over Taylor?”
The singer-rapper then signed the sign and said, “I adore TayTay too… There isn’t any competition here.”
The star then signed the sign and commented, “I love TayTay too… there’s no competition here.”
In late June, Lizzo received backlash from Swifties after comments she made during an Instagram Live. “The most popular person of today ain’t even comparable to what Beyonce is doing,” Lizzo said.
Many Swift fans thought her remarks were directed at the pop singer, who is presently topping the Billboard charts with her re-recorded Speak Now album and shattering records with her Eras Tour.
