Lizzo, queen of everything, tells body-shaming critics ‘mind your own f**king business and worry about yourself’

Lizzo has reminded critics who’ve launched pathetic attempts to body-shame her that her figure is “none of their f**king business”.

The “Coconut Oil” singer posted an exercise video to TikTok on Tuesday (June 9).

Lizzo’s TikTok began with the star on an exercise bike, as she said in a voiceover: “So I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years, and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all, that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type.”

The video switched between her exercising and showing off her body in the mirror, as she said: “I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f**king business.”

“Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job.

“So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own f**king self and worry about your own goddamn body, because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside.”

In a much-needed reminder for her body-shaming critics, she said: “Health is also what happens on the inside, and a lot of y’all need to do a f**king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day.”

One person who posted the TikTok to Twitter wrote: “I adore Lizzo with all my heart. This is dead on.”

Another told the body-shamers: “I’d like to see YOU sing full-out while DANCING full-out, and then killing it on the flute (which takes more breath than most woodwind instruments) for a full 1.5 hour performance.”

Earlier this year Lizzo used her platform to speak out for Black trans women in a cover interview for Rolling Stone.

She said: “As a Black woman, I make music for people, from an experience that is from a Black woman.

“I’m making music that hopefully makes other people feel good and helps me discover self-love.

“That message I want to go directly to Black women, big Black women, Black trans women. Period.”
