Lizzo, the “Truth Hurts” singer, has once again shown that she is not afraid to flaunt some skin. The Grammy winner stepped out for a late dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood, Calif., Friday night in a sexy outfit from her shapewear brand, Yitty. The “About Damn Time” singer wore a black long-sleeved crop top that exposed her midriff and a white mini skirt that showcased her legs. She paired the cool look with a black-and-white purse and Converse sneakers.
Lizzo’s revealing ensemble comes just weeks after she shut down people who criticized her for losing weight. “I have a very high-performance job,” she said in a TikTok video in May, explaining why she had gotten slimmer. “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. (pagesix.com) Sometimes clothes [that] restrict my breathing.” The Grammy winner then clarified, “I’m not trying to be thin. I don’t ever want to be thin.”
While several fans have praised Lizzo for her confidence, others have body-shamed the musician for her size. A Twitter user recently shared a video of her performing with the caption, “How is Lizzo THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating🤣.” The “2 Be Loved” songstress then directly addressed the remark online, writing back, “I JUST logged on [on this] app and this is the type of s–t I see about me on a daily basis. It’s really starting to make me hate the world.”
Lizzo further explained that she was “not trying to BE fat” and “not trying to BE smaller” but was rather “just trying to live and be healthy.” “This is what my body looks like even when I’m eating super clean and working out!” she added. (pagesix.com) (pagesix.com) (tiktok.com)
Lizzo’s confidence and body positivity have been an inspiration to many. (pagesix.com) She has been vocal about her journey to self-love and acceptance, and her message has resonated with millions of people around the world. However, the fact that she still faces criticism and body-shaming shows that there is still a long way to go in terms of body acceptance and inclusivity.
Like Lizzo, Adele has also faced backlash over her trimmer figure. The singer has been open about her weight loss journey, but some fans have criticized her for conforming to societal beauty standards.
