Lizzo to become the first female headliner at Bonnaroo Festival

Just mere hours after announcing she would be quitting Twitter, Lizzo was announced as the headliner for Bonnaroo music festival.

Within hours singer and rapper Lizzo both made fans cheer and cry with her announcements.

The Twitter trolls were beginning to get to the “Good as Hell” singer as she announced late Sunday night she was quitting Twitter.

However, Monday morning news broke Lizzo would be making history as the first ever female to headline Bonnaroo music festival.

Lizzo has been subject to quite a lot of trolls online recently after appearing at a Lakers’ Basketball game with her butt out. The singer supported her clothing decision and said people were only mad at her size; however, many online users commented on how inappropriate the outfit was for the setting.

Most recently, fitness author Jillian Michaels faced backlash for telling fans they shouldn’t celebrate Lizzo’s body.

“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music?” Michaels, 45, said when discussing Lizzo and self-acceptance during an appearance on Buzzfeed News’ AM2DM.

“‘Cause it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes,” Michaels continued. “I love her music. My kid loves her music. But, there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘And I’m so glad that she’s overweight.’”

Michaels later released a statement on Instagram adjusting her tone after getting slammed by fans.

“As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy, and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity — heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few,” she said.

“I would never wish these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”

The rest of the Bonnaroo lineup was released Tuesday, which includes fellow headliners Tool and Tame Impala as well as other performers, Miley Cyrus, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Denzel Curry, Young Thug, Lana Del Rey and many others.

Bonnaroo Festival is held in Manchester, Tenn. This year’s festival will be held from June 11-14.
