Lizzo Has Found Her Next Yitty Model Thanks To This TikTok Challenge

Spoiler alert: it's her mom!

Lizzo loves a TikTok trend as much as we do. If there’s a new challenge going around, you better believe the “About Damn Time” singer-songwriter is going to get in on the action — and nail it (probably better than we would).

For her most recent TikTok conquest, Lizzo recruited her mom, Shari Johnson-Jefferson, to participate in the “Turning My Mom Into Me” trend. The TikTok challenge tasks users with raiding their mom’s closet to dress up mom to look like them.

Being the businesswoman she is, Lizzo took her TikTok a step further by dressing her mom in a red onesie from her Yitty shapewear and clothing line. I, for one, have never been more influenced to buy a Yitty onesie in my life!

From a Champion T-shirt and track pants to a fuzzy, zip-up onesie, Lizzo completed her mom’s look with red lipstick, hoop earrings, and space buns.

“Yung gravy 👀👀👀,” Lizzo captioned her TikTok, jokingly calling out the “Betty (Get Money)” rapper and his dating type preference (moms).

Just in case fans didn’t catch the plug, Lizzo added, “Before y’all ask issa @yitty onesie.”

Unsurprisingly, the internet fell in love with Lizzo’s mom. Additionally, dans couldn’t get over just how much they resemble one another. Put Lizzo’s mom in a Yitty onesie with space buns and we’d all be fooled that it was her famous daughter!

In a follow-up video to her “Turning My Mom Into Me” TikTok, Lizzo donned a white Yitty robe and matching space buns with her mom. Set to the same tune as her first video, Lizzo and her mom each model their Yitty loungewear before reentering the frame together and dancing.

“My momma look better than me 😫,” Lizzo wrote alongside the video, praising her mom.

Mother-daughter? More like twins!
