Despite the “unhealthy” air quality recorded in New York City just days before, Lizzo took to the outdoor stage at the 2023 Governors Ball on Friday. During her headlining show, the pop star called on people to listen to the First Nations and indigenous people of the country, as well as the water protectors who are fighting to ensure we have land to live on because “we love clean air,” according to USA Today.

Putting on a memorable show at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Lizzo, 35, wore a bright pink wig, silver bodysuit, and matching skirt. She performed several of her hits, including “Special,” “About Damn Time,” and “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready).” The three-day event wasn’t canceled despite concerns from concertgoers over the air quality index (AQI), which reached 405, “unhealthy” for everyone, on Wednesday.

More than 400 active wildfires across Canada led to an eerie orange sky in New York City, and local hospitals reported a sharp increase in emergency room visits for asthma and other respiratory problems. The elderly, children, pregnant women, and people with lung or heart ailments were urged to stay indoors through the weekend. The city’s air quality was considered “good” by Friday. Ice Spice, Lil Uzi Vert, Kim Petras, Diplo, and many others also performed at Governors Ball.

These gases can cause heart disease and cognitive issues as they impact your blood’s ability to oxygenate other vital organs. Smoke inhalation can cause premature or preterm birth in pregnant women as well. Dr. Purvi Parikh, an allergist and immunologist with the Allergy & Asthma Network, told The Post Friday that it’s best to stay indoors during bad days and run a HEPA air purifier if you have them. Keep windows closed and wear masks outside – higher-grade medical masks are best like N95, KN95.

“In light of all the environmental events and disasters, we need to listen to our First Nations, indigenous people of this country,” the pop star said during her headlining show, per USA Today.

“We need to listen to our water protectors because they’re trying to make sure we have land to live on. Because (we) love clean air.”

Following days of smoke-induced haze across the Big Apple due to Canada’s ongoing wildfires, Lizzo, 35, put on a memorable show at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

The “Good As Hell” singer took the stage wearing a bright pink wig, silver bodysuit and matching skirt.

Concertgoers were concerned that the three-day event would be canceled due to the horrible air quality index (AQI), which jumped to 405 — a degree rated “unhealthy” for everyone — on Wednesday.

The city was blanketed under an eerie orange sky as more than 400 active wildfires spread across Canada.

Due to the smoky skies, local hospitals in NYC reported a sharp increase in emergency room visits for asthma and other respiratory problems.

“At Lenox Health Greenwich Village, for example, the number of asthma treatments were more than double the average,” a spokesperson for Northwell Health told NBC News 4.

However, by Friday, the city’s air quality was considered “good.” Aside from Lizzo, Ice Spice, Lil Uzi Vert, Kim Petras, Diplo and many others performed at Governors Ball.
