Houston Rockets Invite Lizzo To Shake With The Cheerleaders

Houston, TX – Lizzo continues to shine even if her critics despise her recent moves. The “Truth Hurts” singer was invited by the Houston Rockets on Wednesday (December 11) to strut her stuff with the Clutch City Dancers.

In a tweet posted by the Rockets’ ficial Twitter account, the team shared their admiration for Lizzo’s confidence. “Lizzo, we like your moves! You can have an open invite to come home to Houston and dance with Clutch City Dancers on the court any time,” the tweet read.

Lizzo, who moved to Houston when she was 10 years old, gleefully accepted the invitation with a tweet her own that read, “I’ll be there w/ bells on my booty.” The Minnesota Timberwolves even chimed in tweeting a picture Lizzo —who’s a big fan Timberwolves star Karl Anthony Towns — sipping a drink with the caption “She’s a Wolves fan. The thirst…”

The singer-rapper made headlines for arriving at a Los Angeles Lakers game in an outfit that exposed her fishnet stockings and backside in a thong. When the Laker cheerleaders performed a routine to her hit “Juice,” the jumbotron showed Lizzo twerking and showing her thong to the camera. Social media erupted with all types comments from full-on support for her daring outfit choice to fat-shaming.

Lizzo took to Instagram Live to chime in on the critics who bashed her for having a little fun. “This is who I’ve always been. Now everyone’s looking at it and your criticism can just remain your criticism,” she said in the live stream. “Your criticism has no effect on me, negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions.”

On Wednesday (December 11), she was voted Time’s Entertainer the Year.
