The winner of the AMAs? Lizzo carrying a minuscule bag ‘big enough for my f***s to give’
Lizzo took a tiny bag to the American Music Awards (AMAs) that was 100 per cent ridiculous and we have no choice but to stan.
Lizzo’s stratospheric rise from indie artist to Vogue magazine-covering, number-one-single-having, flawless and unbothered queen has been quite the sight to behold, but perhaps never more so than during Sunday’s AMAs.
The ‘Truth Hurts’ singer arrived at the star-studded ceremony wearing a ruffled orange one-shouldered town by Valentino and – inexplicably – a teeny, tiny white handbag.
Not much larger in size than one of her bedazzled fingernails, Lizzo held the bag between her fingers as she posed on the red carpet, leaving reporters wondered what on earth she could be carrying in it.
“Oh I’ve got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, condoms,” she joked according to Yahoo, explaining that hers was just one of three tiny Valentino bags in existence.
Later on, the singer took to Instagram to explain exactly what she’d been carrying around in the purse.
“@maisonvalentino bag big enough for my fucks to give,” she wrote.
As with pretty much everything Lizzo touches, her tiny bag turned into meme-making gold.

Lizzo was nominated for three awards at the 2019 AMAs, but failed to take home a single trophy in what we can only assume was a case of pure jealousy over her red carpet look.
Taylor Swift was the night’s big winner, taking home six awards including artist of the year and artist of the decade. In doing so, the singer broke Michael Jackson’s record for most AMA wins of all time, with a total of 29 across her career.
To mark the milestone Swift sang a medley of old hits, despite having previously claimed that she was being blocked from doing so by her old record label and arch nemesis Scott Borchetta.
Other winners on the night included Halsey, who won favourite song (pop/rock), and Lil Nas X, who won the same award for the rap/hip-hop genre. In other words, the AMAs said gay rights.
