If you won't legendary service, you won't this girl get a quote and safe by bundling auto and home with insure runs. Every once in a while an artist comes along that shakes the foundation of what it looks like to be a star. It's not just about hitting number one on the charts, which she hasn't tell or about having one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Harry Styles, cover your song. It's about being so authentic and comfortable in your own skin that it polarizes some people and inspires others, and that's what makes Lizzo so special. She plays the game by her own rules and makes no apologies for it. That's why she isn't just an artist.

...down. We got the chance to talk to Lizzo about all of that, plus her new upcoming album, a rumored collaboration with Harry Styles and, of Chris Evans might make a surprise appearance. I'm your host, Hamordia, and this is this about podcast where famous people spout off about more than what they're famous for, and today that's Lizzard. What's up? Hey girl, how are you good? Little nose just announced Montero de loves. I'm screaming. Wait, do we think that's an April fool's joke, though? Oh, got me, because I just saw that too, and I had to say reaction, and then I was like wait, because you know he likes to play play tricks on us. I could be wrong. What do you think? I think you are right, because he's so funny. Yeah, although Locky, I am here for the Montero Deluxe, he said, featuring Rihanna, and I scream. Oh girl, I saw that too. I was like say, RIHANNA's coming out with on Montera to let's go. So good. He got me so good. All Right, back to the interview. Hi, how are you so? Oh my God, I need I need that clip, Alana, and that's a NAS Um. I'm good. What's up? What's up girl? Okay, so the last time we spoke through just drop rumors all the room was a true we are, which a heart. That's true. Yeah, him and you we are, if you believe I, Dude. And now you are back with a new single, and all I have to say is it's about damn time. Let's go brears. Okay, first off, I love that you open the song by telling us it's bad o'clock. So tell me about this track and why you chose it as your follow up to rumors. It's bad. A crack is stick.

I've been through, but I'm still thank you for loving the song. Hell Yeah, I I felt like it was urgent. I wrote the song like two months ago, and mind you, I've been working on this album for three years, so this is technically and literally the last song I wrote for the album, and it felt like make okay, put this out right now. The world needs this, you need this right now. This song is about just how much we've been through collectively as a people, but also personally, and how we need to take a moment to ourselves to refuel and and celebrate our survival. Yes, and celebrate, celebrate life. So I felt like the sooner the better. Let me get this song out so people can use it to feel better about life. And it is. It's such a feel good song. And between a hundred percent that much baduch a clock and thick thirty, you're creating a whole new legs to cod for empowered women. So where do you come up with these sayings? Um, I don't know where bade clock came from. I say it. So if you watch, watch out for the big girls, which is so funny. If you watch, watch out for the big girls, I say it. I think it was episode three. I go, she knows what Tom it is. Is Bad a clock, and I think I just made that up on the spot and I was like, I want to put that in a song, so I'll put it in the song. And to specify exactly what bad the clock is, it's thick thirty. So everybody, set your alarms to thick thirty because that's when it goes down. Yes, I love it. Well, last month you tweeted that your new album is finally complete and congratulations. Are Actually shies a congratulations to us, your fans, because we have been ready for us. What can we expect from the new album? And is there...

...an official release date yet. You can expect good music, really good music. I think this is a classic album, or at least you know. I think it's classic, and that's all I'm mad is classics. Of Me, and I think a release date will be announced soon, because now the masters are turned in. So I'm like, let's go, so the world will be getting it this year. Yes, let's go. And then, is there an album title yet? Maybe? Well, snap, okay, I I had to ask something else. I had to ask because the Internet is out here interneting with rumors that there is a Harry styles and Lizzo collab on the album. Is that true? That is so funny. The Internet, Go Internet. That's all I'm saying about that. Ha. Okay, well, we'll have to wait till the album drops. What about your crush, Chris Evans, because we see him playing the piano and his instagram story. So is there any chance of a collaboration between the two of you? I literally hit him up and was like play piano my album, and he's just said ha ha ha. So cool. It would have been really cool, but unfortunately not this time. ha ha ha. Hopefully next time. Well, speaking of Boyfriends, you have hinted on your instagram that you are, quote, happy, and you gave it a sneak peek of a new man in your life. Are Any of the songs on the album about him? Who? I think you have to listen to find out. But I think people are going to be really surprised at how many love songs are on this album. Yes, Ye, I love that. Look at you, your glowing. Oh goodness. Yeah, well, success surrounds you, because your Amazon show, watch out for the big girls is the number one reality show on Prime Fi. T air horns. I would be like, you know, sending them off right now. Let's go. What's up, y'all? If Lizzo, I'm looking for dancers to join me on my tour. Girls that look like me don't get representation. Count of pull up MUS sleeves. Find the muscle. Why do you think this show is connecting so strongly with audiences? I think it's because of the stories. I think the cast...

...is I couldn't have found better human beings to represent the big girls. They are so talented, so beautiful and so willing to be vulnerable, and I think vulnerability is you know, we everyone has like a bullshit detector these days, like we can read through bullshit and I think none of these girls are bullishit. All of these girls are a hundred percent real and I think people really connect with that. Is there a follow up season? Potentially, if I need big girl dancers, I'll do one. I think I do. Went on a need to have basis. Just like I didn't make the show to have a TV show. I'm not like, Oh, I'm a celebrity, so let me make a TV show. Now it's like, Nah, I need a dancers, and Amazon prime video gave me Amazon problem. Like prime video gave me a platform and amplified my knee need. So now I can get what I won't. So I'm so happy now because I got dancers child because I need I need dance for us and Al Music Videos, war shows, tour I need dancers and now I have them, thank goodness. So if I do another season, it's going to because I'm looking for dancers. But I will say so many people are like, I'm auditioning next time, like I've seen so many tweets where like one of the next auditions wins the next season. Because I need to, I need my moment and I see Ya. I hear Y'all, I feel y'all. Let me get through this tour and if I need more dances, I let you know. I love it. Wait, has the tour been announced yet? No, but there's gonna be one. There's you know, I'm not one of those coming thing type of is like, there's gonna be a tour. I need to tour. I love playing shows. I haven't played shows consecutively on a tour and three years. Damn near and this music people are going to want to hear in person for sure, and I'm judging off of this new track,...

...we're going to want to dance to it too. So we are young. Hey, hey, Hey, what's up? Nick major here with the spout podcast, and let's talk about dogs, everybody. Why? Because dogs are incredible. Mine she is my my daughter, my best friend, my everything. Her name is Frankenstein. Hi, Frankie, how are you doing? Daddy loves you. But you know what? I don't love? I don't love going to the grocery store, to the pet store, to get her food because it's these big bulk bags that, while, I will admit, on the outside they have these incredible looking pictures of meat, of steaks, of vegetables and then I open it up and it is just these small, stale, smelly pellets that I feel guilty about giving my sweet little frankie. Not to be fair, she would be willing to eat anything I put in front of her, but that's just her and she's just love to eat anything. But I her father, who understand the importance of having a nutritional diet. I'm not about that. I want to make sure that she's eating stuff that is good for her, and that is why I want to talk to you about the farmers dog. It's real. It's fresh, healthy food, with hole meats and veggies gently steamed in human great kitchens to preserve their nutritional value, and they personalize your meals for your dog. You tell them the dogs age, the breathe, the size, the weight, and from there they will create a vet developed meal plan for is little as three dollars a day. Meals arrive in preportioned, ready to serve packets and because they're delivered on your schedule, you will never run out, and dog people everywhere, just like me, have ordered more than two hundred million meals from the farmers dog. It has never been easier to invest in your dog's long term health with fresh food, and I know that that is something that is so incredibly important to all of us. We want our little fury friends, while I mean some dogs aren't. Don't have her, but we want our little friends to be healthy. So why not help them out when we know we can? And I'm super pumped because you can get fifty percent off your first box of fresh, healthy food at the farmers Dogcom spout. Plus you get free shipping. Come on, dry it out. Just go to the armers dogcom...

...spout. That's SPO ut to get that fifty percent off once again the farmers Dogcom spout. You also launched yety and all inclusive shape, where a brand for, as you put it, every damn body, and I know you mentioned this was five years in the making. So talked to me about Yiddy and why it's so important to have this kind of shape where in the market. I just want to show off my neon Point Pink Mesh me top. Hop I forgot about the headphones. No, wait, I messed me till. Yeah, Oh my God, I was actually going to say something about it. I love it. Yes, I am leging, look at me. I thank you. I I think that it was important because shape where as a as a fashion category, wasn't seen as viable or necessary to disrupt and reinvent, especially five years ago, before all of these newer, cool shape where brands came out, there wasn't really anybody on the market beside spanks, and I was concerned because I've been liberated from feeling the need to change my body. I've been liberated from wearing devices that, you know, tor broke skin and made me bleed and couldn't restricted my bre thing. I liberated myself from that. But as I walked into stores and I would see shape where sections, I noticed that others, other millions of people, weren't liberated and I only saw a small range of colors, maybe three four. They the styles in the materials were not cute. It's like you didn't really want to show that off, and they were uncomfortable and in effective and I really...

...was waiting for somebody to come along and disrupt this category of fashion, and I looked in the mirrors that I guess it got to be me. And here we are, five years later. It took three years of development with faboletics and there are other people disruptors of shape where, and I think that's a beautiful thing. But what Yiddy is doing is taking it to the next level to where we don't even want to call it shape where anymore. We want to eliminate the standard that comes with having to wear shape where, where people feel like they need to look a certain way so they buy a certain products. I want to reverse it. How do you want to look? Because I have a product for how you want to look and you should feel good when you wear this. You shouldn't be in pain. Now we offer different compression levels for people who want to feel a little bit more hugged, a little bit more tight. But you get to define with snatched is I love. You get to make your own beauty standard and become your own beauty standard with Yidy. And this is just the beginning. And what I love about us is like we're coming out with a bang and we listen. I cannot wait until everybody, every damn body, gets in some Yity and tells me what they think, because I'm going to listen and I'm going to just grow because I'm the founder and CEO. I created this so it's built to last forever, generationally and I think that's just I'm just so excited. I'm really excited about how this is going to make people feel. Yeah, I'm excited to wear it see if people were at people already responding so strongly to it. And I like hearing that was a CEO. That's a nice little ring to it. I got a time. I'm a see. Let's go. I know Yiddy is a childhood nickname, right. What? Where did...

...that come from? Yiddy is, yeah, the name that I had when I was a baby. So in my family everybody got nicknames. We got we all got a pookie, Suti, Bapa, Mumu and when I was born, my brother, instead of saying Melissa, he was say Maya because my brother was two years old. So he was like my Yara Am I. Auntie Carmen thought it was so funny that she made it my nickname and it's stuck. She it's like that's a little Yidi right there as Ydy, and it makes me feel connected to home. You know, my family in Detroit and when it came time to name this company, I don't know what other name it would have been. I named it Dy and honor of my Auntie Carmen. And in honor of, you know me, in celebrating beauty and growth, because that's what I'm here to do, and less be beautiful, be beautiful and grow, and that's you are really quickly. One last thing. One of the comments from your followers on your ig when you posted the launch of beauty, and I'm quoting it, says thank you for showing me how to love myself unconditionally. How does it feel to have that kind of positive impact on people? Yo, I did the hard work to love myself unconditionally. I worked hard for years, lots of prayer and meditation, therapy, books, loneliness, tears, late nights, anxiety, stress and it was hard and I wanted to be the kind of person and artist that could create avenues and lanes so people could find that unconditional self love easier, without the pain that I experienced. So it makes me feel amazing that I...

...was able to do that for even just one person, to help them discover the love for themselves through music and hopefully now through Yiddy and through a television show. Watch out for the big girls, and instead of doing it through pain and heartache and loss, like I did, I want to make loving yourself easier for the next generation so that one day it's not even a conversation, it's it comes naturally. That love that we have for ourselves when we're born and we're we're little babies, isn't taken away from us, that it's just instilled in us and fixated, you know, fixed in us, so that we all just grow up the way we were meant to grow up, is like fully loving beings. Lizza, I love you girl. I'm so proud of you, and all I got to say is it's about dawn time. We got this new single and we are waiting for this album. So congratulations again on all of the interists and hopefully we'll speak to you soon. Thanks, girl, very soon.

Guy also had the realization that nothing's actually good. Things are subjectively good to people, but nothing's actually good. Like I cannot make something good. I can make something that I find good and other people find good, but it can't be good. The Spout Podcast is presented by Alpha media and created by Phil Becker. Spout.
