More Lizzo More Lizzo

Lizzo made a surprise cameo on this week’s The Mandalorian alongside comedy and music icon Jack Black.

Lizzo featured as the Dutchess Of Plazir-15, married to Jack Black’s character, Captain Bombardier.

Together, and with the Dutchess’ inheritance of the independent planet, Plazir-15 is a utopia ruled as part democracy and part monarchy.

As Entertainment Weekly reports, the two share lines like, “For now, you must live in exile on the moon of Paraqaat!” and Lizzo wound up knighting Grogu, aka Baby Yoda (remember when Lizzo dressed as Grogu for Halloween?). The celebrity cameos didn't stop there - Back To The Future's Christopher Lloyd played the episode's antagonist.

More Lizzo is coming to our television screens, too, as Amazon Prime has renewed the Emmy award-winning documentary series, Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls

“I’m thrilled to continue this partnership with the Amazon team after an incredible experience on season one of Watch Out For The Big Grrrls,” Lizzo said in a statement shared by Billboard

“I’ve witnessed lives change through this show, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue making space for even more Big Grrrls around the world to shine and break down barriers across this industry.”

Uproxx recently reported that Lizzo had opened a casting call for the second season, and she’s looking for women who can sing and dance. Season one included women who would end up joining the music superstar on her Special tour.

Lizzo is bringing the Special tour to Australia this July. Her headline tour dates arrive alongside the news that she’s the first headliner at this year’s Splendour In The Grass.

Lizzo will be making her Splendour In The Grass debut with a headline slot, which is pretty impressive - not many artists these days could achieve that feat. Lizzo is the first black solo female R&B singer to claim the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 since 2012, and Truth Hurts became the longest-running #1 by a solo female rap artist ever.
