During Monday’s episode of James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” segment, Lizzo credited Beyonce as her personal “North Star.”
Following Corden’s and Lizzo’s duet of “Good as Hell” and “Juice,” Lizzo’ showed her utmost respect for the “Break My Soul” singer.
“When I was shy or when I didn’t think I was cool and when I was getting picked on,” Lizzo said. “I would listen to Beyoncé in my bedroom, and it would transport me. I would feel something. I would feel like my life was going to be better.”
According to Lizzo, Beyoncé’s second solo album, “B’Day,” helped her overcome a depressive episode following her decision to leave college.
“I listened to ‘B’Day’ on repeat, and I would just sing ‘B’Day’ all the time,” Lizzo said. “The way she makes people feel is how I want to make people feel with music. Like, she’s been my North Star.”
Since Lizzo has never met Beyonce, Corden asked her if she wanted him to call Beyonce while they were recording. Lizzo was on the verge of crying when Corden took his phone out of the center console and started to make calls.
“I’m joking. There’s no way I have her phone number,” Corden said before they laughed it off and sang Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love.”
On Monday, Lizzo tweeted, “I hope Beyoncé watches my carpool karaoke tonight.”
