How Lizzo’s Tiny Bag Became a Meme and Took Over the Internet
Turns out, there's a lot that can fit into that microscopic Valentino purse.
Last night, Lizzo rocked up on the American Music Awards red carpet with the most buzzed-about accessory of the evening: a bag so small you almost need a microscope to see it. This tiny bag by Valentino, the singer declared, was “big enough for my fucks to give.”
That, of course, was like an open invitation to the internet because people immediately began sharing all the other things minuscule enough to fit into Lizzo’s custom purse: things like their self-esteem, enthusiasm for work and life savings. The AMA nominee joked, though, that the “toybag” was in fact big enough to hold all her essentials: “I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, some condoms,” she said.
Other than a flood of memes, the accessory (which is one of just three that exist in the world) even inspired its own Twitter account, @LizzosTinyBag. Read on for the best memes of the night, and if you’re on the hunt for a tiny bag that holds a little bit more than all the f**ks you give, check out our guide to the trend here.
