Lizzo clapped back at body shamers in a strongly-worded TikTok video on Tuesday (June 9).
The fiery clip shows a montage of the singer exercising, trying on lingerie and showing off her curves in a swimsuit while offering some free advice to her haters in a pointed voiceover. “So I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years,” she said, “and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type. I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f–king business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job and I stay on my job.”
The Grammy winner continued: “So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them — whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonalds or work out or not work out — how ’bout you look at your own f–king self and worry about your own goddamn body. Because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside. Health is also what happens on the inside, and a lot of y’all need to do a f–king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day.”
During her quarantine, Lizzo has also stayed busy and engaged in current events, opening YouTube’s Class of 2020 virtual graduation event, hosting meditation sessions on Instagram Live with SZA and addressing her feelings on racism in the midst of the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests.
