Lizzo rejects being face of body positivity: 'We should be neutral about bodies'

Megan Sims

Lizzo does not want to be defined by her body.

The 33-year-old songstress discusses the issue as the December cover girl for Essence Magazine, joining Simone Biles and Nikole Hannah-Jones, who also have their own covers for the issue that centers around the theme "Year of Radical Self-Care."

In her cover story, Lizzo admitted that she would rather not be the face of the body positivity movement, but hopes that her presence will help normalize the existence of different bodies.

“It’s exhausting,” she said. “And that’s the point. I don’t want to talk about this anymore. We should be neutral about bodies.”

This is not the first time the "Truth Hurts" rapper has rejected the idea of being body positive. In an interview with Vogue in 2020, she noted she would rather be called "body normative."

“I want to normalize my body. And not just be like, ‘Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body-positive.’ No, being fat is normal. I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here. We have to make people uncomfortable again, so that we can continue to change. Change is always uncomfortable, right?” she explained.

Singer Adele also recently made comments about the pressures of being defined by her body, especially after her weight loss. Last year, the 33-year-old singer shared photos of her transformation on social media, which caused quite a stir among fans...

Being fat is unhealthy but normal. We can all attest to that having had lockdowns. That's the true message Noone wants to give.

During the six months the gyms were closed here in NYC, I was able to keep the weight steady by exercising at home and changing eating habits. I lost some size, but eventually got it back once NYSC reopened in October.

I don't believe she was made that way. She didn't come out of the womb obesed. She just didn't do the things her mother grew up doing and continued to do through her life. No one is 'big boned'

Brandy's daughter thought...gesix.com)

Brandy’s daughter thought mom was ‘embarrassed’ of her weight issues

Brandy’s daughter Sy’Rai Smith once thought her famous mom was “embarrassed” by her when she was heavier.

“Sometimes I would feel a little sad or feel like she was embarrassed of me,” the 19-year-old revealed on “The Real” Wednesday.

However, the teen clarified, “These are just insecurities in my head.”

“[Brandy] was never like that,” Smith insisted. “She was always supportive. She always knew that I was beautiful, and she supported me whether I wanted to lose a lot of weight or not.”

Smith is Brandy’s only child. She welcomed her daughter with record producer Robert Anthony “Big Bert” Smith in 2002.

The “Boy Is Mine” singer is known for her slim frame, which Sy’Rai said caused her to “feel like the odd one out” and ask herself at times, “Why am I not that way? Why am I not that size? Why was I made the way I was made?”

However, when the teen finally lost weight, the rising singer realized her family “still loved” her regardless of her size.

“I was Ra Ra to them either way,” Sy’Rai added. “I love my whole family. They’re so supportive.”

Host Jeannie Mai Jenkins praised the young guest for recognizing that she was just projecting her own feelings and not receiving actual criticism from her relatives.

“For you to realize, ‘This is me. This is what I’m getting from myself, and not from my mom and other people’ … so proud of you with that,” she said.

Adele stuns with devastating new songs, tells Oprah, 'It's not my job to validate' body image

Her ex-husband rescued her emotionally

“I think Simon probably saved my life; he came at such a moment. The stability him and Angelo have given me, no one else would have been able to give me…I could easily gone down some dodgy paths...He came in and was stable, the most stable person I’ve ever had in my life. Even now I trust him with my life. I feel like him and Angelo were angels sent to me.”

She exercised to combat 'paralyzing' anxiety attacks

Adele shed about 100 pounds in two years primarily through exercise. She told Winfrey she started working out to combat “paralyzing” anxiety attacks and because she had the time. “It became my time, me having a plan when I had no plans…having these ‘pins’ in my day helped me keep myself together.”

While some fans might have felt Adele’s everywoman appeal took a hit with her glamorous makeover, she shrugs off any criticism. “I’m not shocked or even fazed by it. My body has been objectified my entire career. Am I too big? Am I too small? I never looked up to anyone because of their body...I was body positive then and I’m body positive now. It’s not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies. I’m trying to sort me own life out!”
