Some things never change…. ?

Lizzo won three Grammy Awards in 2020, and to date, her music has reached over 4 billion global streams.

In April, she and SZA hosted a meditation session on Instagram Live where Lizzo played the flute and SZA played a Tibetan singing bowl.

During the live stream, the two also touched on the use of drugs during COVID-19 quarantine.

“All these drugs… like liquor, weed, all these things, they lower your immune system,” said SZA. “It f*cks with your ability to fight things off. Tobacco—I used to smoke spliffs all the time, I used to smoke Backwoods all the time. I stopped that sh*t. Why? It was bodying my ability to heal and, like, correct myself, and taking me 10 steps back every time I would make five steps forward.”

And when it comes to their relationship with social media, Lizzo noted: “For me, this is a whole dimension—social media, the internet—it’s a whole other world,” she said. “And for me, it’s not the healthiest world to be in, especially as of late. But since we’ve been in our houses, this is my destination. This is where I go, this is where I go on vacation, mind breaks. And when I go to this place and I overindulge in it, it’s made me really sick. It’s made my perception of myself sick, it’s made my joy sick. And I don’t think I was putting myself first. So now I’m just doing little things.”
