“Sexy home depot sample,” one commenter clarified, while another wrote, “Is that a bad thing? That’s the best part of the hardware store!”

The 33-year-old Grammy winner’s SXSW speech marked a coming-of-age moment for the star, as her family moved to Texas when she was 10. Onstage, she spoke to Angela Yee about body image, societal expectations and Texas politics.
“I don’t think society saw the value in bigger bodies,” she said, later expanding on her complicated feelings towards her home country. “I’m proud to represent Houston, but I’m not proud to represent Texas politics right now. Very regressive laws are being passed.
She also called on politicians to “mind their own business” and “stay out of my body”.
Lizzo also performed during SXSW, ditching her Pantone ensemble for a gold bodysuit and baby blue faux fur.
