Lizzo speaks out against TikTok’s unhealthy promotion of diet culture, fat phobia and eating disorders. In a video shared Jan. 6, the “About Dumb Time” singer directly addressed negative comments from body shamers about her appearance. It’s exhausting,” she said, standing on the beach in a bikini.
Lizzo continued. before the body’, ‘Oh my god, you’re so big. I need to get something”,” to “Oh my god, why did she get all the work done? That’s too much work.”
“Artists are here to make art, and this body is art.”
Enthusiastically, the singer went on to point out that artists don’t have to conform to social media’s unrealistic beauty standards. . “Do we realize that artists are not here to meet your beauty standards? Artists are here to make art, and this body is art. I’m going to do whatever I want with this body.All the money is just so that we can see how much time we’re wasting on the wrong things.
Fan support for Lizzo’s speech was overwhelming in the comments section. One user wrote, “Period!!! It’s nobody else’s business. I’m sick and tired of people hiding their fat phobia behind a thin veil of pretending to be ‘care’.” Another user wrote, “Preach!!!!!!!!” Beneath a stream of applause and heart emojis, another user signed his Lizzo’s forceful statement. “Beyond other people’s bodies, there’s a lot more to talk about,” another user wrote.
Conversations about body shaming have been circulating on social media for years, but Lizzo’s comment is a strong reminder that beauty is subjective. More importantly, her videos demonstrate that the Internet is a dynamic space for having important conversations, and that unsolicited assessments of others’ appearances should be put last on the list of topics for discussion. It reminds me of something.
