Lizzo didn't hold back when defending her stance on monogamy in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Back in July Lizzo told the hosts of The Breakfast Club radio show being in a traditional relationship "scares" her.
In April, the LGBTQ+ ally who "leans heterosexual" revealed on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show she was romantically linked with comedian Myke Wright, the mystery man she had been photographed with in LA back in February.
The subject of relationships and monogamy came up again in July when the hosts of The Breakfast Club asked Lizzo if she could see her relationship with Wright lasting the next ten years.
"I think a traditional relationship scares me for 10 years, but love is forever. I can love somebody forever.”
The "Good As Hell" singer continued:
"Monogamy, to me, is a little claustrophobic because there are rules."
"I think a love relationship that's not monogamous has no rules. I think people who do poly and all that stuff—there's still rules."
Lizzo is currently gracing the cover of November's Vanity Fair issue.
And when the topic of monogamy came up during the interview for the feature story, she asked, rhetorically:
“Is monogamy a religion? People fight for monogamy like they pray to it every day."
"I am not a polyamorous person, I’m not in love with multiple partners. That is not me.”
Lizzo explained she and Wright have known each other for six years and are very much in love.
"We’re just in love. And that’s it."
But when it comes to marriage, she was as ambivalent as she was in her discussion on being monogamous.
She went on to share her preferences about the hypothetical next step with Wright.
“We are life mates. Do I want to get married?"
"If I wanted to start a business with him, I’d get married because that’s when your finances come together."
"I like weddings. I would like to have a wedding over a marriage.”
Lizzo said sex was not what comes to mind when thinking about monogamy and rules.
“I’m thinking about the autonomy and independence of him and me"
"How wonderful would it be to be this complete independent person and to come together to make two complete independent people?"
"Not that whole ‘You complete me, you’re my other half.’ No. I’m whole, and you’re incredible too."
"We’re like the mirror image of each other. We’re connected. But that doesn’t mean I was incomplete when I met him.”
