Early Years

 

Melissa Jefferson was born to Michael and Shari Jefferson in Detroit, Michigan in 1988. We do not know what her father did for a living, but we do know he passed away in 2009, when Lizzo was 21 years old.

Vanessa, the singer’s sister, works alongside their mother. When she was ten years old, her family moved to Houston, Texas, where she began flute lessons with renowned instructor Claudia Momen.

While attending Alief Elsik High School in Houston, Jefferson, Lizzo joined the Cornrow Clique, a musical ensemble. Her stage name is acknowledged to be taken from Jay-Izzo Z’s (H.O.V.A.)

She studied the flute at the University of Houston following high school. After her father’s death, she lived in her car for a year before relocating to Minneapolis, Minnesota to pursue a career in music.

 

Lizzo Career

The Detroit native made her breakthrough in 2013 with the release of her self-titled debut solo album. Since then, she has released two more albums, appeared in two films, and had several television show appearances.

Lizzo gained 12.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify in 2021, despite not having released an album since 2019. Several of her tracks from the Cuz I Love You album have accumulated more than 250 million streams on the platform.

In reality, it was the publication of this album that brought mainstream recognition to Lizzo. The track roster comprises Gucci Mane, Missy Elliott, DaBaby, and Ariana Grande, all of whom are considered urban contemporary artists. At the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, the deluxe edition was nominated for Album of the Year.

The singer has amassed enormous money through touring. Since 2012, she has been consistently on the road performing. In addition to co-headlining with Haim and Florence and the Machine since 2019, she has been the main attraction on three separate tours.

In addition, the performer earns a respectable income through her YouTube channel, which now has 2.47 million members. According to Lizzo, her current single Rumors with Cardi B marks the beginning of a “new era.”

Brand sponsorships are a reliable source of income for most musicians. In this instance, Absolut, Quay, Dove, and a number of other firms have recruited the multitalented musician to market their products.

The artist signed to Atlantic Records developed her own line of clothing several years ago, and it continues to be a reliable source of consistent income. The frequently updated website allows fans to purchase clothes and songs.

Lizzo Height and Weight (How Much Does Lizzo Weigh?)

She is listed as being roughly five feet ten inches tall or 1.78 meters tall. This puts her almost on par with fellow stars Taylor Swift and Tyra Banks. Meanwhile, a few sources incorrectly state her height as five feet and six inches.

The weight of Lizzo has always been a topic of dispute. Once weighing over 300 pounds, she lost almost 50 pounds before regaining the majority of her weight. Surprisingly to some, she appeared pleased to return to her former location.

Lizzo Age

In January 2022, Lizzo will be 33 years old. In 2012, at the age of 24, she released her debut album as a member of the Chalice, a trio of female rap/R&B artists. A decade later, she has become a highly popular entertainer. Notably, Lizzo’s notoriety is not restricted to the United States alone; she is a well-known celebrity on a global scale.

Dating Record

To begin with, the artist does not subscribe to any one sexual orientation. She once stated, “I personally do not subscribe to a single belief… Therefore, LGBTQ+ is represented with a rainbow! Because there is a spectrum, and we are now attempting to keep things black and white.”

Regarding her romantic life, Lizzo is relatively quiet. In the past, rumors circulated that she was dating a Minnesota Vikings player, but she verified that it was a man from her hometown. However, she has publicly flirted with other superstars, such as Drake.
