Singer and superstar Lizzo captured the world's attention this week at the MTV VMAs with her glamourous outfits (five in one night no less) and her energetic performance.
She is not only celebrated on her performances and style, but also, her attitude and stance on body positivity. And now, the 31-year-old has said she isn't comfortable being labelled as courageous.
She told Glamour, “When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No I’m not.’ I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy," she shared. “I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it.”
She also said times are changing, which is a good thing. “Back in the day, all you really had were the modelling agencies," she added. "I think that’s why it made everything so limited for what was considered beautiful. It was controlled from this one space. But now we have the Internet. So if you want to see somebody who’s beautiful who looks like you, go on the Internet and just type something in. Type in ‘blue hair.’ Type in ‘thick thighs.’ Type in ‘back fat.’ You’ll find yourself reflected. That’s what I did to help find the beauty in myself."
