Lizzo’s VMAs 2022 red carpet look sparks memes

These jokes are “Good As Hell.”

Lizzo was one of the earliest celebrities to arrive on the VMAs 2022 red carpet Sunday, and in an outfit that’s got everyone on social media talking.

The “Truth Hurts” hitmaker, 34, seemed destined to be the night’s most-memed attendee in her voluminous navy blue Jean Paul Gaultier Couture gown.

Lizzo accessorized with dramatic Lael Osness gloves and Jennifer Fisher jewels, including multi-hoop earrings and even a faux lip ring.

She also matched her lipstick to her dress and gloves, opting for a deep navy pout and a slicked-back hairstyle.

Lizzo’s oversized look received mixed reviews on Twitter, where viewers likened it to a garbage bagbed linens, “Little Mermaid” villain Ursula and more.

An Ursula resemblance was deemed uncanny, as both rocked shades of blue, bold lips and strapless gowns. “Who let lizzo dress like Ursula?” a Twitter account bemoaned.

“Now i love lizzo but why did she just jump in a trashbag and call it a day?” someone asked.
