Lizzo has shared a video of Rosie O’Donnell admitting she got the lyrics wrong for her new song “About Damn Time” and many fans have confessed they had made the same mistake.
Actor and former talk show host O’Donnell posted a video to TikTok in which she explained that she had mistaken Lizzo’s lyric: “Tryna bring out the fabulous” for, “Tryna bring out the fat b—- lust.”
“That’s what I heard,” she told her followers. “That’s what I’ve been singing while I’m trying to figure out the dance… It’s not ‘fat b**** lust,’ people, it’s ‘fabulous.'” She added, “What’s wrong with me?”
Lizzo shared the video on her Instagram, writing: “Now @rosie… #fatb—-lust.”
Many others admitted they had made the same mistake, with others saying they like O’Donnell’s interpretation “way better” and that it could spark “a whole movement.”
One fan wrote, “Lizzo change the lyrics now,” while another said, “THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT TOO.” Another person said, “I meaaaaaan, Rosie right…. I heard that as well lol.”
“Fabulous, FBLust. Eh potato potato. They’re both on point to me!” wrote another fan, while another was relieved saying, “Honestly I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought this lol.”
“About Damn Time” is the first single from Lizzo’s new album Special, out July 15.
