Lizzo Shuts Down Weight Loss Critics: “I Don’t Ever Want to Be Thin”
  • Fat shaming is still common, and Lizzo has been at the forefront of the war. The singer says she “will never be thin,” despite rude comments about her body online.
  • Lizzo shared a TikTok video on May 15 by @tiffriahgrande looking for fat people who exercise for health, not weight loss.
  • “Heavy on the not trying to escape fatness. Heavy. F*cking. On it,” Lizzo captioned her version of the post. Lizzo clarifies that she isn’t into working out just to lose weight.
  • “I have a very high-performance job,” she tells fans in the video. “For 90 minutes a night, I have to do choreography; I have to sing; I have to dance; I have to rap; and I have to play the flute; and I have to emote and hype a crowd in very tight clothes. Sometimes clothes [that] restrict my breathing.”
  • Lizzo says she works out for her mind and to maintain mental health. Why do you workout?
