#1 Billboard recording artist Lizzo paid a visit to the Red Stick.

There was a buzz on social media after Lizzo posted a video on her Instagram referencing flying to Baton Rouge from San Francisco.

Rumors heated up after Southern posted the following tweet inviting students out to a video shoot.

Then a bus with Lizzo's name on it rolled up at Southern University as crowds poured in hoping to get a glimpse of the pop star.

The lines grew long and security "loudly demanded" that attendees would have to empty pockets and there would be "no cell phones allowed." People who showed up ranged from excited students to family members of the Southern Band, and everyone was excited to be a part of the action.

I can't wait to see what this amazing combo has cooked up for us. In the meantime, check out the full story here at The Advocate.
