Theron attributes his success and fame to the unwavering honesty and support of his family, whose love and admiration keep him grounded in humility. He admires the way his family keeps it brutally honest with him. As a voting member of the GRAMMYS, Theron reminisced about casting his vote for Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” for ‘Record Of The Year’ in 2023. He recalls his 11-year-old son, who was 10 at the time, jokingly criticized his choice, saying “Dad, did you just vote for Lizzo’s “About Damn Time,” I said “yes,” then his son said, “that the song sucks, and I’m like WHAT!” Welp, his son was off on that one, lol.
His recent nomination arrives on the heels of a significant achievement, following the success of Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” which won ‘Record Of The Year’ at the 2023 GRAMMYs®.
