Lizzo dresses as fly in Mike Pence’s hair for Halloween

Lizzo used Halloween to troll Vice President Pence, dressing up as the highly buzzed-about fly that landed on his head during the vice presidential debate while encouraging her fans to vote.

The singer donned a pair of black wings and bug eyes for her costume this year and posted an edited photo depicting herself on top of Pence’s white hair.

She had voting buttons attached to her gray bodysuit and passed one out during a video of her dancing in front of Pence’s picture. 

The Grammy Award-winner will likely not be the only one poking fun at the vice president during this year’s festivities.

Vendors quickly quickly sold out of the $90 adult fly costume after the debate. A $40 “holographic fly eyes plush headband” — which boasts a design that will “bring the true beauty of flies into sharper focus” — also sold out post-debate but is now back in stock.

The insect went viral earlier this month after it was seen resting on Pence’s head during his debate against Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris. 

The incident became one of most memorial moments of the face-off, even being spoofed during an episode of “Saturday Night Live.” The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum also unveiled a new bobblehead commemorating the fly. 

The “Truth Hurts” performer has thrown her support behind Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Last week, she went to her hometown of Detroit to campaign for the former vice president in the critical swing state of Michigan.
