Lizzo Shares Clip Of Herself On ‘The Simpsons’: Watch
Lizzo has shared a short clip of her appearance on the season finale of The Simpsons – watch the video below.
The singer posted the clip on her Instagram page, writing, “Every Icon has been on @thesimpsons — now I can add my name to the list! Thank you to the whole team for making this a dream come true 💖”
The finale of the 34th season of The Simpsons is titled Homer’s Adventure Through the Windshield Glass and is set to air on Sunday 21 May. The video shows Bart Simpson taking on the task of repeatedly slapping Homer Simpson with Lizzo saying, “This beat is fire.” She then asks Lisa Simpson “How ’bout I get Sasha Flute, you get your saxo-mo-phone, and we jam!”
It’s the latest in a series of dreams to come true for Lizzo. Recently she was joined onstage by her musical idol, flautist James Galway, at the Met Gala.
Lizzo shared a video of her playing with Sir James and said he had “changed the trajectory” of her life.
She wrote that when she was 11 years old and learning the flute she needed a challenge and found Sir James’s 1976 album The Man With The Golden Flute.
She added: “Now, years later I had the honour to play beside Sir James Galway, and receive lessons from him and even play his alto flute.
“I can confidently say I wouldn’t be the musician I am today without his influence.
“Thank you for everything this week. You are truly the King of Flutes and I can’t wait to play with you again.”
Galway told the BBC’s Good Morning Ulster programme that he “really enjoyed” the gig and he praised Lizzo’s performance. “It was amazing – she is a very good player,” said Belfast-born Sir James.
