Lizzo Says Beyoncé Got Her Out of Depression and Calls Her a "North Star" on Carpool Karaoke

We are officially making Lizzo the president of the Bey Hive (sorry not sorry).

The "Truth Hurts" singer made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden during Carpool Karaoke, where she performed her famous hits (like "Good as Hell," "Juice" and "Cuz I Love You") before speaking candidly about Beyoncé's influence on her life.

"When I was shy or when I didn't think I was cool and when I was getting picked on, I would listen to Beyoncé in my bedroom, and it would transport me," Lizzo told Corden. "I would feel something. I would feel like, 'My life is going to be better, there's hope for me.'" 

She went on to tell the host that Queen Bey is her "North Star" and how the B'Day album helped her out of depression. "When I dropped out of college and I was really depressed, I listened to B'Day on repeat and I would just sing B'Day all the time. I was like, 'I'm going to be a singer, I'm going to be a singer,'" she said. "The way she makes people feel is how I want to make people feel with music. She's been my North Star." 

Aside from the major influence on her personal life, the "Good as Hell" singer spoke to Corden about naming her star flute "Sasha Floot" after Beyoncé's alter ego, Sasha Fierce, and even covered the iconic "Crazy in Love" with the host. 

Shockingly, the pair have never met before, but Lizzo is hoping Bey checks out Monday's episode of Carpool Karaoke, posting on her Twitter: "I hope Beyoncé watches my carpool karaoke tonight." 

We have a good feeling they'll meet each other soon, seeing how the Lion King star gave Lizzo a birthday shoutout back in April 2020. We just hope when they do, an "About Damn Time" remix is in the works with Queen Bey herself.
