If you follow Lizzo on Instagram, you’ll be sure of one thing: lady loves herself sick.
She loves her curves, she loves her size, she loves her cellulite – she loves it ALL. I mean, she genuinely loves it… and it makes me, a woman who has always struggled with her body image, feel a little freer just watching her. Lizzo’s words aren’t tokenism though; one flick through her pics prove that this is one woman who walks her talk.
This body-loving, flute-playing, singing, dancing dynamo flat-out refuses to let anyone comment negatively on her bod and certainly isn’t afraid to call-out those who do. The thing is, in doing so, Lizzo is standing up for women of all shapes and sizes who feel judged by society for not having a body deemed ‘good enough.’
Just a few days ago, Lizzo posted a vid on TikTok – a shout-out to body shamers everywhere – and we are HERE FOR IT. Check it out below and feel free to fist pump along with us.

Since this is goin around the internet let me just say: I DONT POST THINGS LIKE THIS FOR ME. IDGAF ABOUT TROLLS THAT BODY SHAME ME. I DO THIS FOR THE PEOPLE WHO GET BODY SHAMED EVERY SINGLE DAY WHO DONT HAVE MY PLATFORM OR HAVE THE SAME PATH TO CONFIDENCE I HAD. I KNOW THAT I AM HERE TO DEFEND AND REPRESENT YALL. BECAUSE I LOVE YALL AND I DONT WANT YALL TO GO THROUGH THE SELF HATRED I WENT THROUGH. AND IF POSTING MY JOURNEY AND CUSSING IGNORANT INSECURE WANNABE “COMMENT SECTION DOCTORS” OUT IS WHAT I GOTTA DO TO MAKE SURE FAT SHAMING IS SHAMED THEN THATS WHAT IM GONNA DO. Ok love u bye. S/O my trainer @marcusely who is patient and respectful of my goals.
Bravo, Lizzo. Bra-fucking-vo!
