Restart Pride Month: Lizzo Just Dropped ‘Boys’

Restart Pride Month: Lizzo Just Dropped ‘Boys’

I think I could watch this new Lizzo music video on repeat until I die. Appropriately called “Boys,” Lizzo sings about all the different kinds of boys that she likes. Which, in short, is all kinds of boys!

“I like big boys, itty bitty boys. Mississippi boys, inner-city boys. I like the pretty boys with the bow tie. Get your nails did, let it blow dry. I like a big beard, I like a clean face. I don’t discriminate, come and get a taste,” sings Lizzo. (Very relatable.)

If you aren’t already convinced that this needs to be played at every gay bar around the world, the next lyric is literally “From the playboys to the gay boys. Go and slay boys, you my fave boys.” What an icon.

Somehow, the video makes it even better — the entire time Lizzo really is serving looks on looks. It starts with her looking sexy in a sheer robe with jaguar print lingerie and cuts to her in a varsity jacket and full fro. It’s really the best of both worlds. Later, when she’s listing the aforementioned genre of boys, she does so with a beehive hairdo.

As an added bonus, right after she sings the lyric about gay boys, a furry butt appears on screen. Even before we saw an interview, I think we all knew Lizzo was a queen — and this year has proven it beyond a doubt.
