While visiting her hometown of H-Town, chart-topping singer and flute virtuoso Lizzo took a moment to enjoy one of the city’s purest joys: a Shipley Do-Nut.

Lizzo visited Houston on Friday, making stops at the University of Houston, her alma mater, and spent a little bit of time rehearsing with the Spirit of Houston marching band before also reuniting with her former band director at Alief High School. After that, though, the singer tweeted a video of herself dancing outside of a Shipley’s location off Highway 6 in Alief, and it’s eleven seconds of pure, unadulterated joy.

Watch here:

It’s unclear what exactly Lizzo’s doughnut preferences are — plain glazed, chocolate-covered, or maybe cake — but one thing is clear: she’s 100% Houstonian. For their part, Shipley Do-Nuts responded with a brief encouragement for Lizzo after seeing the video:

Don’t be surprised if Lizzo’s Shipley Do-Nut dance doesn’t become a viral trend in Houston.
