Lizzo Plays James Madison’s Crystal Flute At D.C. Concert

Lizzo Plays James Madison’s Crystal Flute At D.C. Concert

During her gig at Capitol One Arena in Washington, D.C., on September 27, Lizzo played the historic crystal flute made for the fourth president of the United States, James Madison, in 1813.

The flute, which was crafted by the Parisian watchmaker and mechanic Claude Laurent, was lent to Lizzo by the Library of Congress.

“@lizzo we would love for you to come see it and even play a couple when you are in DC next week,” the Library of Congress wrote earlier in the week. “Like your song they are ‘Good as Hell.'”

“This is crazy. I have to be really careful,” Lizzo said. “It’s crystal, it’s like playing out of a wine glass b-h, so be patient.”

She then trilled a few notes on the instrument, held it up triumphantly over her head and carefully returned it back to the Smithsonian rep.

“B-h I just twerked and played James Madison’s flue from the 1800s!” Lizzo yelled. “We just made history tonight! Thank you to the Library of Congress for preserving our history and making history cool. History is freaking cool, you guys!”

In another post, Lizzo wrote, “I’m the first and only person to play this presidential crystal flute. It’s literally an heirloom – Like. as a flute player this is iconic and I will never be over it.”
