Y’all going to leave Lizzo alone. She took to TikTok to criticize body shaming in an exercise video she shared.
“I’m not working out to have your ideal body type”.
Throughout her young yet incredibly successful music career, Lizzo has used her platform to condemn those attempting to body-shame her.
The singer called out people who cite her name in TikTok videos when referring to “big girls” in TikTok videos, saying that it is a “compliment”.
In a new video shared on the social media platform, the 32-year-old said she has “been working out consistently for the last five years”.
“It may come as a surprise to some of y’all, that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type,” she stated.
“I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f***ing business.”
The video featured a compilation of clips showing Lizzo doing various exercises, posing in lingerie and looking at her reflection in a mirror while wearing a swimsuit.
“Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job,” she said in a voiceover.
“So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own f***ing self and worry about your own goddamn body, because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside.”
Lizzo finished her video by telling her viewers that “health is also what happens on the inside, and a lot of y’all need to do a f***ing cleanse for your insides”.
“Namaste, have a great day,” she said as she signed off.
Leave Lizzo Alone
Many have critiqued Lizzo’s penchant for twerking, including famously at a Lakers game where her thong was exposed. Many were concerned due to children being in attendance.
Celebrity trainer, Jillian Michaels, best known for her work on “The Biggest Loser,” appeared on BuzzFeed News back in January and had some controversial words for the singer.
“Why are we celebrating (Lizzo’s) body?”, Michaels asked. Michaels received huge backlash and she released a statement on Instagram.
