Lizzo has been open about her struggles with body shaming in the past and has long been an advocate for positive body image, encouraging her followers to embrace their bodies at any size. Lizzo Has a lot of confidence and really inspires others by not caring about what other people say about her.

“I think I have a really hot body! I’m a body icon and I’m embracing that more and more every day,” she said at the time. “It may not be one person’s ideal body type just like, say, Kim Kardashian might not be someone’s ideal, but she’s a body icon and has created a modern-day beauty standard. And 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.”

She also noted that people use “negativity as clout and attention” because it makes them “feel good.” And in turn, she’s tried her best not to pay them any mind.

Lizzo is an American singer, rapper, flutist, and songwriter who has overcome her struggle and is living life to the fullest. In the beginning, she helped form a three-piece all-female rap/R&B group: the Chalice. In 2012, “The Chalice” released their first album, “We Are the Chalice,” which was locally successful. The release of “Cuz I Love You” marked a turning point in Lizzo’s career, as she began to attract more mainstream attention.
