AceShowbiz - Lizzo is one of the celebrities who is always keeping it real. The "Truth Hurts" singer recently talked about people's comments about her body. While some of them might mean well, it wasn't always be the case.
Speaking to Tracy Smith for "CBS Sunday Morning", Lizzo alluded that there were times she was hurt by statements people innocently made about her figure. "Somebody's like, 'well you know, you a big girl so you can never have short hair, you always gotta have big hair cuz you a big girl' and they say that lovingly but I'm like that's a little mosquito bite," she explained. "You don't even know it's there but soon you look up and you're covered in mosquito bites."
However, the chart-topping singer/songwriter revealed that she started believe beauty came in all sizes. "Like, when I'm looking at my body and I'm shaming every little thing about it, I have to look at all of those things that I'm shaming, and I have to find love in those things. And I think that is why I'm able to call myself fat," Lizzo said.
She went on saying, "I can also feel healthy and still be fat," she added. "I can be healthy and be fat. I can be beautiful and be fat. I can be beautiful and all of those things. And I think it's because I learned to actually look all of my insecurities in the face, call them by their name, and fall in love with them."
Prior to this, Lizzo gained praises after sharing a photo of her showing of her natural beauty. Slipping into her birthday suit, the singer, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, treated her Instagram followers to a photo of her baring his body and face.
It didn't take long for the pic to go viral with many gushing over her and calling her "beautiful."
