Social media users react to viral photo of Lizzo and Mayor Pete Buttigieg
Multi-talented artist, Lizzo found herself not looking so “good as hell” in a photo with presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg during their appearance on CBS This Morning show on Thursday.
The Time’s “Entertainer of the Year” posed in a photo with the Indiana mayor barely “cracking a smile,” Mashable reports, leading to some speculation about whether the interaction was uncomfortable.
When host, Gayle King asked him to describe himself in three words, Buttigieg responded, “Standing near Lizzo, right now.”
Lizzo then followed up with her response to the question by saying “Glamorous, talented, and booty-ful.”
Referencing one of Lizzo’s popular songs “Truth Hurts” King then asked Buttigieg if he recently took a DNA test and he responded, “Yes, and I am 100 percent that nominee …”

But based on the picture it where Lizzo stares blankly ahead, social media users interpreted that Lizzo wasn’t feeling the same way.
Twitter user @bridgetgillard stated, “I’ve never seen Lizzo look uncomfortable, another accomplishment for the accomplishment candidate.”
