Lizzo loves the way she looks and there is nothing brave about it.
The “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” rapper addressed people’s use of the term “brave” to describe her body positivity.
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not. I’m just fine,'” she told Glamour. “I’m just me. I’m just sexy.”
“I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful,” Lizzo continued. “I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it.
“Back in the day, all you really had were the modelling agencies. I think that’s why it made everything so limited for what was considered beautiful,” she suggested. “It was controlled from this one space. But now we have the internet.”
“If you want to see somebody who’s beautiful who looks like you, go on the internet and just type something in. Type in ‘blue hair’. Type in ‘thick thighs’. Type in ‘back fat’. You’ll find yourself reflected. That’s what I did to help find the beauty in myself.”
Lizzo recently delivered a show-stopping performance with a medley of songs at the MTV Video Music Awards Monday night.
