The singer has set herself the goal of setting new beauty standards for body types. In each song the artist talks about accepting all bodies and loving yourself as you are. Now, Lizzo is getting candid about the discourse surrounding her body.
Lizzo rose to fame in 2019 with the release of her hit song “Truth Hurts” and with which she managed to win a Grammy. Since then she has continued to “work hard” in her activism to change fashion trends to be more inclusive of the types of course. At no time has she let comments about her appearance or her career bother her, as she has had many heaters on social media.
And not only did she do body positivity, Lizzo also employed music to claim female empowerment and black female magic. When she came clean in front of the media cameras she said, “I deserve the attention. I’m talented, I’m young.” Lizzo feels at times that she can’t get to where other artists are because of the lack of attention since her body is “not like the rest.”
The star mentioned that her identity as an artist and confidence comes from her parents with whom she grew up in a family “very proud of who they are.” Lizzo quickly turned on “how we treat fat people” in the United States and wanted to remedy the situation.
With her music she wants to inspire that “fat,” as she refers to herself, doesn’t have to be a negative word. Lizzo assures that with all this she maintains a goal: “What I’m doing is stepping into my confidence and my power to create my own beauty standard. And one day that will just be the standard.”
