Lizzo just took a DNA test and she is 100 percent "NOT OK."

In a thread the singer posted to Twitter on Saturday about her thoughts on ageism in the presidential race, she mentioned Barack Obama was the first president she ever voted for – and then, much to her surprise, Obama tweeted about her.

The former president listed Lizzo's track "Juice" as one of the songs he and his wife, former first lady Michelle Obama, have been listening to this season in a "Summer Playlist 2019" he shared to his followers.

"The first President I could ever vote for was Obama. I was so proud of my right to vote and I will never take it for granted. I love us," she wrote. "I’m not sure who I’m voting for yet, but it for damn sure isn’t Trump."

Then, just hours later, she realized Obama mentioned her in his list.

"I TWEETED THIS AT 10:26AM AND ONE HOUR LATER PRESIDENT @BarackObama TWEETED ABOUT ME!!!" she wrote, expressing her excitement in all caps. "WE’RE FRIENDS NOW I DONT MAKE THE RULES!!!"

She also shared a fan's message about the Obama tweet with a status update.

"IM NOT OK !!!!!!!!" Lizzo wrote.

Earlier in her Twitter thread, Lizzo ranted about ageism in the political sphere.

"I hear a lot of about Bernie Sanders being 'too old' to run or be president... but we’ve currently got a 73-year old in office so drop the ageism (expletive) and just listen to what he’s got to say," she tweeted, referring to Sanders, a Vermont independent, and President Donald Trump, a Republican.

She also called Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a "dope candidate."

"I’m just sayin we worried bout the wrong things let’s just listen to the policies and stop talkin bout the (expletive) that don’t matter ya know," she noted.

She then clarified that she wasn't making any official endorsements with her tweets.

"It’s a call to action for us to focus and get unified as a party... we need to figure out how to get trump out of office and it ain’t by talkin about Bernie Sanders’ age," she said.
