Lizzo is going into 2020 with eight Grammy nominations and the title of TIME’s 2019 Entertainer of The Year.

On Wednesday (December 11), Lizzo celebrated her latest honor via Twitter.

“ARE … YOU … NOT … ENTERTAINED?” she wrote in a retweet of her eye-catching cover of TIME magazine.

In an interview with TIME, Lizzo spoke on how her eight-year grind finally catapulted her into the spotlight as a chart-topping artist.

“I’ve been doing positive music for a long as time” she said. “Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream!”

Beyond Lizzo’s accomplishments, the Entertainer of the Year has been under scrutiny for flaunting her body lately. Lizzo became a hot topic on social media after posting several nude and nearly-nude photos and videos on Instagram. She sparked lots of conversation by twerking to her song “Juice” in a revealing thong during a Los Angeles Lakers game on Sunday (December 8).

After social media weighed-in with countless opinions and critiques of the curvy singer’s actions, Lizzo responded via Instagram Stories by stating, “I just want to spread that love and also spread these cheeks.”
