#LizzoIsOverParty: Twitter Is Trying To Cancel Lizzo In Support Of Ariana Grande

By  | 

Lizzo is the bad*ss queen of positivity, charisma, and grace, so imagine our surprise when I logged onto Twitter this afternoon to find the hashtag #LizzoIsOverParty trending worldwide. It took *a lot* of digging through unrelated K-POP gifs to figure out why the internet is trying to cancel Lizzo, but as your resident Nancy Drew recapper, I have a few investigative tricks up my sleeve.

Basically, what happened is that Ariana Grande stans are heated because Ari wasn’t named on the “Good as Hell” remix when it broke into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, so they’re trying to cancel Lizzo. Now, I consider myself an O.G. Ariana fan, but even I know this is grasping at straws. Ari’s feature is credited on the song itself, but it looks like the original song is the one that’s charting (although Ari’s verse on the remix undoubtedly helped it leapfrog up to No. 14).

Now, it’s important to note that *Ariana* doesn’t seem to be pressed about the Billboard credits — with her executive produced Charlie’s Angels soundtrack dropping this week (including the long-awaited “Got Her Own” duet with Janelle Monae) and a mountain of record-breaking Hot 100 No. 1s, Ari has better things to worry about than this campaign to cancel Lizzo. Also, K-Pop stans really have nothing to do with this. Some people have been confused about the flood of K-Pop GIFs within #LizzoIsOverParty hashtag, but K-Pop stans aren’t trying to cancel Lizzo, they’re just doing that thing they always do on Worldwide trending tags to show their heroes some love.

Basically, we should all take a page out of Lizzo and Ari’s books and show these strong women some love. Lift each other up, don’t jump to conclusions, and just keep it pushing like aye yi yi.
