Comedienne Luenell, like the rest of the world, is a huge fan of Lizzo. Unfortunately, her meeting with the megastar didn’t go as planned when she met her on Saturday Night Live.
Eddie Murphy closed the season with the best SNL hosting of the decade with musical guest Lizzo. The audience was full of superstars — many who have been waiting decades for the actor to return to the show that launched his uber-successful career.
Luenell, who worked with Murphy on Dolemite Is My Name, was able to go backstage where she met the Truth Hurts singer who didn’t seem as excited to meet her.
She hilariously took to Instagram with a nude photo and genius idea.
She accompanied the image with a caption that addressed the situation: ‘Hey @lizzobeeating when I briefly spoke 2 u last weekend @nbcsnl u didn’t seem particularly excited ta meet me like I was ta meet You but it was a Lot of activity going on and ur Mom & Sis Totally made up fa that because they were Stoaked & we took pics and hugged it up. I was SO not offended. You KILLED Both numbers and did us Big Girls Proud AF. Not trying ta throw tha “I did it 1st” card but dig this…I would Luvvvvv ta do a collabo of some sort witcha. This idea was brought to me by songwriter and producer @papaleemusic and a few More heavyweights n the industry. This post may never reach ur eyes but you Will b hearing fr me n 2020. Bet. Hey @melissamccarthy wanna get n on this action? How bout a juicy baby oiled photoshoot, or music video or whatever…tha 3 of us? What say YOU Public? H***, f the @kardashians can do it why can’t WE! Boys, quit playin’ and grab urself a heavy hitter this winter and find somewhere warm ta lay your…..head!’
Lizzo explained that she was not unimpressed — just sick!
She wrote back in the comment section: ‘Omg I was so excited and overwhelmed it was SNL!!! Not to mention I had the flu so I was on a lot of medication that made me mellow as hell… even my family was worried about me because I was sooo in the zone. But I love u!! And holla atcha girl. Happy New Years!!!’
What do you think of the funny interaction?
