Lizzo Shuts Down Body-Shamers in Powerful New TikTok Video
"I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job."
Lizzo has even less space in her life for body-shaming trolls than she does for anything to fit inside the Jacquemus handbag she wore to this year’s American Music Awards. In a new TikTok video posted by the Grammy Award winner yesterday, the Truth Hurts singer shared a montage of workout clips with a powerful voiceover.
“Hey, so I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years,” she says at the start of the clip which was captioned, “If you’re not a fat shamer…keep scrolling…ok now that all the fat shamers are here.” She added, “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*cking business.”
That message alone is so incredibly powerful but she continued: “Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job. So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s, or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own f*cking 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*cking cleanse for your insides. Namaste. Have a great day.”
