Cookie Monster may be one-dimensional in a way — he’s 100% cookies and a little more than just obsessive, for starters — but he still finds time to keep up on pop culture. And Lizzo’s rise rocketblast rise to fame made an impact on the Sesame Street icon. And Lizzo responded with the humor and verve she’s known for, loving up the Monster parody and tossing him a lovely alliteration in “crumble crazy.”
Lizzo is, of course, talking Cookie Monster’s language — right after he borrowed some of her story to tweet about his DNA test. Lizzo’s #1 hit “Truth Hurts” begins “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch
Even when I’m crying crazy.” Yup, crying crazy, crumble crazy — it’s all so meta. Meta monster?
Oh a Lizzo and Cookie Monster duet on the Sesame Street set is so everthang to be imagined that it makes even this superb social exchange seem pale. Will they do it?
