Lizzo Says She & Adele Got “So Drunk” At The Grammys
Lizzo says that she and Adele got “so drunk” at the Grammys during an interview on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. The “Truth Hurts” singer explained that the two smuggled in several flasks of alcohol into the venue. Lizzo says that she brought in a flask of tequila for herself and one for Adele containing white wine. The ceremony was held at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, last weekend.
“I legitimately was so drunk,” Lizzo admitted. “Me and Adele were drinking so much that we didn’t even really know what the categories were at this point.” From there, Lizzo explained that the two couldn’t keep up with what was going on during the ceremony. “We were like, ‘Did they do Best Artist?’” Lizzo said. “We didn’t even know, and when it was time and they would call our names we would just be like, ‘Smile.’”
Continuing with the story, Lizzo added that she “brought it for Adele, and then I drank hers. I had so many flasks. I had like three flasks at the table. Always be prepared.” “I had zero say in where I was sitting, but Adele had 100% say in where she was sitting,” she continued. “So therefore Adele FaceTimed me when I was in Grammy rehearsal a few days before. She was like ‘Oh my God! Oh my God, we’re sitting next to each other.’”
As her nominations, Lizzo won the Record of the Year award for her song, “About Damn Time.” “When they called my name I was in total shock because I didn’t expect to win at all, let alone a big one,” she said of her win. Lizzo wasn’t alone in her win either. Adele also picked up Best Pop Solo Performance with her song “Easy on Me.”
Elsewhere in the night, Beyoncé took home awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Song Written for Visual Media, Best R&B Song, and Best Dance/Electric Record. The awards made her the winningest Grammy Award artist of all time. She also tied her husband, Jay-Z, for the most nominations of all time.
