Lizzo’s home is just one of the many places fans are surely going to be excited to catch a glimpse of during the One World: Together at Home
special on Saturday, April 18, which is raising money and awareness for healthcare workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines. Here’s what we know about the singer’s house.
Lizzo Lives in East Los Angeles
Lizzo moved to the Los Angeles area in 2016, telling Rolling Stone in a 2018 interview that she never intended to live in L.A.
“I moved here for two reasons, none of them because I wanted to be here. I have so much anxiety, and always get weirded out living in places that are on fault lines. But here I am. I moved out here because I was working on Coconut Oil and I had gotten a gig hosting the show Wonderland. I was like, ‘This is temporary,’ but two years later I’m setting up shop in Echo Park.”
Lizzo then left for a while to record music in Atlanta and recently moved back, telling City Pages that even though she’s a more successful artist now than she was a few years ago, she didn’t want to live in Hollywood. Instead, she opted to return to the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, which she calls “the ‘Little Minneapolis’ of L.A.,” referring to the midwestern city where she lived prior to coming to L.A. in 2016.
“I know that might make some people roll their eyes, but it’s where a lot of people who move from the Midwest come, because it has the most community of any place in L.A., in my opinion. It’s pretty chill,” Lizzo said of Echo Park.
To keep busy during quarantine, Lizzo has been hosting meditations for her fans on Instagram from her Echo Park home. She burns a little incense or sage, puts some crystals on display, plays the flute, and then offers her fans affirming stories and anecdotes.
