“Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls” won the competition series Emmy on Monday night.
This ends the four-year streak of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
The series sees the singer audition a group of women for the chance to be a Big Grrrl — one of the plus-sized backup dancers who perform with her on tour.
Accepting the award in tears, Lizzo cried out for the Big Grrrls to join her onstage:
“The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me.
The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get told. Let’s just tell more stories.”
“When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media,” she said. “Someone fat like me. Black like me. Beautiful like me.
“One year ago, these women were filming this television show that would change their lives forever. They are Emmy award-winning superstars who are going on a world tour!
Speaking to Variety in June, she said, “I’ve never really felt entitled to accolades or awards. My dream with music wasn’t to make a million dollars and win a Grammy.
Lizzo is currently on a world tour with her album “Special,” which debuted on July 15.
