Lizzo: Love yourself!

Lizzo has urged people to love their body as it is.

The ‘Juice’ hitmaker has always pushed body positivity with her fans and friends but admits it “really bothers” her when she sees “fake doctors” giving their verdicts on other people’s figures on social media sites.

She shared on TikTok: “I just wanted to say I’ve seen a few of these videos about fat girls who eat healthy and stay active, but can’t seem to lose weight. I think these kinds of videos are important – whether they intend to lose weight, or don’t want to lose weight – just to show that every single body is different, and how it functions is different. What really bothers me is the fake doctors in the comments, saying “Oh, you have this’ or ‘You might have this condition’ …No! No! What if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body? Bodies are not all designed to be slim with a six pack. If you’re feeling down on yourself today… just remember that your body is your body. Nobody got your body. So enjoy that b****. (sic)”

Meanwhile, Lizzo previously admitted to being “bothered” that people used to focus on her size and criticise her for loving herself.

She explained: “It bothered me for a long time that all people could talk about or think about was my size. I didn’t like it when people condemned me for it and kind of rubbed me the wrong way when I was praised. Like ‘you’re so brave!’ They thought they were complimenting me by saying I was unapologetic. I was like ‘What do I have to apologise for?’ In 2014 I was wearing a leotard onstage with two big girls also in leotards and saying I love myself, I think people were like ‘How dare she, how dare she love herself, how could she?'”
