There is, at the moment, no flutist more famous (at least in mainstream music) than Lizzo. She is happy to throw out the instrument any chance she gets, and she found plenty of room last night while walking the red carpet at this years Met Gala. Lizzo once again took a moment to remove some notes for surprised onlookers.
In a quick Variety red carpet interview, she shortened it a bit, revealing that her coat took 22,000 hours to make, and that her flute of the day was rare and valuable.
Lizzos Thom Browne-designed outfit featured an ornate black cape with golden vine embroidery that was worn over a black corseted dress with a skirt held together by garters. Moreover, Classic FM reports the flute is called The Dryads Touch and is made out of 18 karat green gold. Lizzo also indicated that she was playing the opening lines of Claude Debussys Prelude a lepres-midi dun faune.
Lizzo shared several photos from the event, including a video of her playing the flute, which she captioned, and said, "Yellow I was going to play Debussy," but I became concerned.
