Lizzo Loves Her Body and Her 'Blackness': 'My Body Is Just So F—ing Beautiful' https://t.co/siIbbhaCfO— People (@people) April 29, 2019
In an interview with V magazine, artist Lizzie opens up about independence and self love. She says her new album, Cuz I Love You, is about “how to love yourself in a world that doesn’t love you back”
On self image and self acceptance:
Lizzo talks about growing up and coming to terms with her body and the idea of self love.
“I love my body. No matter what angle you shoot it at … my body is just so fucking beautiful all the time..I may talk shit about it sometimes, but fuck. She’s still a bad bitch.”
On celebrating her blackness:
“I am really just so honored to be graced with this identity... No shade to any other shade on the planet — I just can’t relate. I just love being a black woman, even in a world where we are statistically the least desirable. I am still here, and I still rise.”
On inclusion in music:
Lizzo talks about the lack of visibility for marginalized people in the music industry.
“...And if I am going to fight what I have been marginalized for, I am going to fight for all marginalized people. Also, I honestly feel like there is no such thing as straight... Because fuck boxes; I am too big to be put in one anyway. I am a fat bitch.”
