Lizzo is getting the documentary treatment! The "About Damn Time" singer is going to be the subject of a documentary for HBO Max, Lizzo announced Wednesday at Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront in New York. The documentary follows the Grammy winner's meteoric rise from humble beginnings to superstardom with intimate looks into some of the most defining moments of her career

When it comes to her new documentary, Lizzo said Wednesday, "Growing up I never dreamed I'd get to experience all of the things I've accomplished in my life, and I'm just getting started. I'm so excited I get to share and relive my journey with my fans and HBO Max," as per Deadline.
