Lizzo Opens up About Body Positivity: "I'm a Body Icon"

“I think I have a really hot body! I’m a body icon, and I’m embracing that more and more every day.”

Lizzo opened up about body positivity and beauty standards in a recent interview with People.

“I think I have a really hot body! I’m a body icon, and I’m embracing that more and more every day. 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,” she said, adding: “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 continued to talk about body image and self-love. “I deserve the spotlight. I deserve the attention. I’m talented, I’m young, I’m hot. You know? And I’ve worked hard.” Further in the interview, she discussed stereotypes she has had to face throughout her life. “The funny, fat friend. I played that trope in high school. Or the friend who is gonna beat your ass ’cause she’s big. Or it’s the big girl who’s insecure ’cause she’s big. I don’t think I’m the only kind of fat girl there is. I want us to be freed from that box we’ve been put in.”

The interview comes just ahead of Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, Lizzo’s new competition series produced in partnership with Amazon Prime Video. Watch the trailer down below for the show scheduled to premiere on March 25.
