One must know at this point that if Lizzo comes around, expect the party to be “all the way turned up.” The “Rumors” singer appeared on stage next to Dave Chappelle and Snoop Dogg at the Hollywood Bowl. When Snoop’s iconic hit “Drop It Like It’s Hot” came through the speakers, Lizzo was not about to disobey the command.
The Hollywood Bowl was the center for celebration on October 7th as Dave Chappelle screened his upcoming documentary. Chappelle is also reeling from the mounding press he’s receiving following the release of his latest Netflix special The Closer. The special, much like some of his latest works, has been a source of controversy for the comedian as there are those calling for his cancellation. However, Dave Chappelle took the stage amidst an uproarious and vivacious standing ovation. “If this is what being canceled is about, I love it,” Chappelle said to the crowd. “I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad [MF].” The Closer climbed up to the #4 position on Netflix’s Most-Watched list.
Well-known emcee and ring announcer Michael Buffer was on hand to introduce Dave Chappelle to the crowd. Audience attendees were also treated to various performances and cameos from artists like Stevie Wonder, who expressed that we need to “cancel hate,” Talib Kweli, Nas, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and more.
Rapper Snoop Dogg came on stage to excite the crowd and didn’t come alone. Soon, Lizzo was seen walking on stage in an all-white outfit as the legendary rapper asked Lizzo to “do one thing for me.” Snoop turns to his DJ and gives him the cue to play the music. The song lyrics simply state “When the pimp’s in the crib, ma, drop it like it’s hot.” Lizzo does just that. Fans cheer on as Lizzo proceeds to drop it like it’s hot in front of Snoop and Dave Chappelle.

Recently, Lizzo gave a TED Talk on her favorite pastime, twerking, along with some historical context on the dance move. Lizzo stood in front of an audience in a Black dress and revealed how dancing helped her to love not only herself but her body image. Lizzo also recently had an emotional breakdown on social media as she expressed to her fans that she was still dealing with body shaming from online bullies, as well as other comments. In an Instagram Live session, Lizzo shared a message for all those that continue to drive negativity her way. “I’m doing this for the big black women in the future who just want to live their lives without being scrutinized or put into boxes,” the singer stated. “I’m not gonna do what y’all want me to do, ever, so get used to it.”
