Lizzo has been a voice for body positivity almost since she got famous, and now she’s here with something new: an unedited naked selfie for a change.
In the photo, which she put on Instagram, Lizzo is sitting in a chair and is completely naked. Her hair, which now has bangs, is styled in a way that hides her breasts, and she’s holding a coffee cup that looks like either a butt or boobs.
“♉️WELCOME TO TAURUS SEASON♉️,” Lizzo wrote in the caption. “To celebrate I wanna give y’all this unedited selfie.. now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted show u how I do it au natural.” Lizzo also shared that she’s sharing the picture to celebrate the Dove Self Esteem Project to help “change the conversation about beauty standards.”
In the comments, people who liked the singer were all over it. “Queen ily,” one person wrote. “Yesssss,” said another.
Lizzo has been the queen of body positivity for a long time, as shown by her many social media posts. In March, she posted a TikTok about why videos about active, healthy fat girls are important. “These videos are important to show every single body is different and how it functions is different,” she said. “What really bothers me are the fake doctors in the comments saying oh you have this or you might have this condition… No! What if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body? Bodies are not all designed to be slim with a six pack.”
Lizzo also said that she liked “nature’s cereal,” which is another name for fruit and coconut water. ”You know what I mean? I know I’m eating pomegranates and coconut water. It’s my favorite, shut up,” she said. She ended on this very Lizzo note: “If you’re feeling down on yourself today, just remember that your body is your body. Nobody got yo body, so enjoy that b****.”
She also put out a workout video on TikTok in June to show that she works out. “if you’re not a fat shamer… keep scrolling… ok now that all the fat shamers are here 🧚🏾♀️✨,” she wrote in the caption. Lizzo works out in a lot of different ways in the video itself. Lizzo can be seen jumping rope, riding a bike, and crushing weights.
“Hey. So I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years, and it may come as a surprise for some of y’all, but I’m not working out to have your ideal body type. I’m working out to have my ideal body type,” she says in the video. “And you know what type that is? None of your f*cking business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job.”
