Looks like Lizzo is getting a mullet.
Here’s what happened. Miley Cyrus was prepping for her Super Bowl pre-show by doing the exercise I learned from the tragically underrated reality show Legally Blonde: the Musical—the Search for Elle Woods. By that, I mean she practiced stamina and breath control by belting out Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl” while running on a treadmill.
Not one to be outdone, Lizzo hopped on the trend to sing “Cuz I Love You” during her own intense workout. Lizzo must’ve known Cyrus loves responding to challenges in TikTok captions, so she threw one out there. “If @mileycyrus comments I’ll get a mullet 😭😭😭😭,” she wrote. I have to imagine all those sob-emojis were used because Lizzo knew her fate was sealed.
Of course, Cyrus responded in her signature, “She’s just being Miley” fashion: “Send me the addy! I’m on my way to scissor…I mean with scissors! Mullet Girls! ✂️♥️” Raise your hand if you’re going to need a million-part TikTok series about this adventure.
Lizzo is not the first celebrity or TikTok user Cyrus has gotten sexy with using the comments section. Back in December, the “Midnight Sky” singer suggested a three-way with Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes after the pair posted a cover of her hit, “The Climb.” Before that, she straight-up asked out a fan who asked Cyrus to pick out her next tattoo. She pretty much can’t stop, won’t stop—and I never want her to.
Lizzo also posted the video to Instagram writing, “I’m tireeeeed…Cuz I Love Yoooooouuu. I saw @mileycyrus running and singing on a treadmill so I ran and sang on a treadmill. It was fetch. And FUCKING HARD.”
“I’m doing this for all the big girls out there,” she said at the start of this longer clip. “They said we couldn’t do it!” Whoever said that was obviously dead wrong. I mean, we all saw her Grammys performance last year, right?
This time, Cyrus’s response was much safer for work. The pop star reposted Lizzo’s vid on Instagram Stories, writing, “I love you more! When I’m back from super bowl, We gonna try doing this shit IN MASKS! Letsssss goooooooo!”
