Minneapolis-based rap artist Lizzo aka Melissa Jefferson ushered in 2018 with a performance in her home town where she wore a stunning custom Seth Pratt jeweled and feather catsuit.
Styled by Brooke Candy, Lizzo’s New Year’s Eve performance was filled with positive vibes and a hefty dose of glamour.
Sharing her thoughts on the state of her career just before the performance, Lizzo told City Pages, “2017 has been a big transitional year. I think one of the biggest highlights was getting my touring show and the girls at the perfect level. We’ve been touring for a long time, but this was the first year we transitioned to the perfect touring scenario. We’ve finally been taken care of and we’re out there having a blast on the road. Touring can be a struggle sometimes, but this was the year we finally got rid of the struggle. We were able to have fun doing what we love to do.
“Another highlight would be understanding my anxiety and balancing that with work. I think it was a big deal when I decided my mental health is more important than a show or a check or social media. Once I learned how to find the balance in that, I think it really prepared me for the work that I’m going to have to do in 2018. This year was a huge preparation year. I’m really, really happy with the leaps and bounds we’ve all made.”
