Lizzo has nothing to hide about her body

There’s no stopping Lizzo from owning her body.

The “Truth Hurts” singer, 32, never holds back from supporting the body positive movement and for her latest push to shift conventional beauty ideals, she’s sharing and baring it all without shame.

“As most people know I did an interview about What’s Underneath Project years ago and I took off all my clothes. I took my wig off and talked about the things I loved about myself. I was like, if anybody wants to see how I really look, all they got to do is go to YouTube,” Lizzo said during a Zoom conversation hosted by Dove for the brand’s Self Esteem Project.

“From then on, I was like, I have nothing to hide. There’s no shame anymore. I just post myself. It’s like, you take me as I am. You don’t have to love me,” the star continued.

And true to her word, Lizzo shared an empowering, unedited nude photo n Instagram ahead of her chat with the beauty giant on Tuesday to inspire others to embrace their Photoshop- and filter free selves.

For Lizzo, self love wasn’t a choice, it “was literal survival,” she explained. “I’m going to continue to live in this body and survive in this body and be happy and actually enjoy life, I need to find a way to like myself. I was body negative for a long time.”

It started by taking a step back and paying closer attention to the “negative self speak” she would tell herself. “Most people are taught that body negativity is normal, right? Then I became body positive, which is the opposite of that. It’s disruptive. I believe everything I say about my body. But to push this conversation forward, we need to normalize it, Lizzo said.”

Lizzo’s ultimate goal is to foster a world where bodies of all shapes and sizes are accepted and body positive statements don’t need to be big moments anymore.

“It’s not a political statement. It’s just my body. When you see it, keep it pushing. Keep that same energy that you keep with all the other bodies you see. That’s what body normative really means to me. I’m here, don’t say anything. It’s not a statement. It’s my body.”
