Nom Nom: Lizzo Had The Perfect Reaction to Cookie Monster’s Delicious ‘Truth Hurts’ Take


There are many different metrics of success: being in the running for best new artist at the Grammys, riding the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for consecutive weeks and your breakthrough album hitting the top 5 on the Billboard 200 charts. But for Lizzo the ultimate "made it" moment came on Tuesday (Sept. 10) when an iconic children's TV star gave her props. 

"Me just took a DNA test turns out me 100% cookies," tweeted Sesame Street's Cookie Monster in his sweet-focused lyrical remix of Lizzo's signature hit "Truth Hurts." Lizzo, of course, lost her mind at the unexpected honor, doubling down by retweeing Cookie's homage and adding her own fresh-baked take on the song.

"Even when me crumble crazy me got shortbread problems, that’s the monster in me, nom nom,” she wrote alongside a crying emoji. “Then me eat em that’s the cookie in me.”

"Truth Hurts," originally released in Sept. 2017, landed Lizzo her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her just the sixth female rapper to top the song tally alongside such luminaries as Cardi B, Lauryn Hill, Iggy AzaleaLil' Kim and Shawnna.
