Lizzo recently achieved a major milestone by buying a home, and she’s looking back on her journey to reaching this goal.
The “Truth Hurts” singer spoke on the matter during her sit-down with CBS Sunday Morning—which will air in full on Sunday, Dec. 25, at 9 a.m. However, a teaser for the interview was uploaded on Thursday to give fans a taste of what they can expect.

Lizzo Acknowledges Her Hard-Earned Accomplishment: ‘I Can’t Wait To Come Back To My Own Home’
What chatting with Lizzo, journalist Tracy Smith asked about her new home, pointing out that her living situation was much different “just 10 years ago.”
“Just 10 years ago, you were sleeping in your car!”
Lizzo acknowledged this and noted that, now that she has a place that’s fully her own, she “can’t wait” to return home and enjoy the fruits of her labor.
“Yeah. Woo, Staying in, like, people’s rooms and sleeping on their couches. And now, on this past tour, I was blessed to stay in really nice places. But I was like, ‘I miss my house. I can’t wait to come back to my own home and to my bed.’ This is the first time I’ve ever said this. So, I don’t know. It’s a milestone for me.”
BET reports that Lizzo also spoke on how she’s “going overboard” with Christmas decorations this year by comparing herself to Santa Claus.
“It’s like, not having stuff for a long time, and now [that] I’ve got it, I’m going overboard. I’m literally Santa Claus.”
The New Homeowner Prepares To Wrap Up An Eventful Year
On top of Lizzo reaching the homeowner milestone, she’s also collected a number of other noteworthy blessings this past year.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Lizzo recently had the honor of receiving the People’s Champion Award. While accepting the award, she shared the spotlight with 17 activists.
Shortly ahead of this major honor, TikTok notably named Lizzo as the platform’s top hitmaker of 2022.
Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t also acknowledge that Lizzo popped out with her bae, Myke Wright, earlier this year, too. Regarding their relationship, Lizzo later admitted that they are very “much in love” and “locked in.” She also warmly announced, “There’s nobody else I’m going to be with for the rest of my life.”
Shoutout to Lizzo for reaching this major milestone, and we wish her well with her 2023 endeavors.
