Lizzo Gave UW Emergency Room Workers the Whole Damn Meal

The "Truth Hurts" singer donated lunches to emergency room staff nationwide. That's the goddess in her.

That is pretty bomb lighting for an emergency department.

In case you needed evidence that Lizzo is indeed 100 percent that bitch: This week, the singer sent lunch to frontline workers at emergency rooms across the country. Among them: UW Medicine's Montlake Emergency Department. (Hope they're feeling good as hell.)

I know what you're thinking. The Lizzo? Time Magazine's 2019 entertainer of the year? Rap's most celebrated flautist? The self-empowerment guru whose lyrics we used to yell at dance parties (who remembers dance parties!?) between sips of Lizzo-branded Absolut Juice?

Here's video proof. "You guys are heroes," Lizzo told UW Medical Center staff. "And so the least I could do is just send you some lunch."

The gesture shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given Lizzo's charitable tendencies. Earlier this year (although at this point time is meaningless), Lizzo took time out of an Australian tour to work at local food banks offering relief from the summer's deadly wildfires. In November, she headlined a suicide prevention benefit concert that raised $30,000 for nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms.

And real Lizzo fans may have noticed that her 2019 song "Tempo" actually contains a hidden message about the importance of keeping emergency workers well fed: "Thick thighs save lives."
