Look out Karl-Anthony Towns, ya girl Lizzo is coming for ya. The Grammy nominated superstar singer and Queen was sitting courtside at Lakers-Timberwolves on Sunday. The 27-year-old moved to Minneapolis back in 2011, so she was out supporting her hometown team. In an interview during the game, Lizzo expressed her interest in the T-Wolves All-Star Towns, saying she was rooting for him in particular.

I don’t know if KAT heard the interview during or after the game, but he only had 19 points and the Timberwolves got their teeth kicked in by the Lakers. I mean, you can’t blame KAT for underperforming in the presence of Lizzo, it’s a lot of pressure. Good on Lizzo for shooting her shot.
