The “About Damn Time” singer shared a brief clip of her “Creep” rendition in a carousel post on Instagram Tuesday night, along with a caption that raised a rhetorical — albeit important — question: “What does Lizzo do after her shows?” Why, sing one of the biggest alt-radio hits of the ’90s, of course. (While donning baggy jeans and a t-shirt to suit the occasion.)
But Lizzo hasn’t always made her love for Radiohead so apparent. In a Vanity Fair cover story last fall, she explained she felt the need to keep her more rock-leaning music taste “hidden” from her friends at her predominantly Black school growing up.
“They were all listening to what was on the radio: Usher, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, and I was into Radiohead’s OK Computer,” she said. “Because I didn’t want to be made fun of by my peers — they’d yell, ‘White girl!’”
In 1993, Thom Yorke sang “you’re so fucking special”; nearly 30 years later, Lizzo sang “In case nobody told you today, you’re special.” Coincidence? Check out the video of her doing “Creep” below.
