4 Reasons We Adore Lizzo

Let’s face it, Lizzo is an icon! From her influential music, her incredible sense of humour, her endless self-love and her astounding live performances, Lizzo has taken the world by storm.

Her third album,Cuz I Love You, earned Lizzo eight Grammy nominations, the most of any artist that year, winning three. She’s also won a Billboard Music Award, two Soul Train Music Awards and a BET Award. Throughout her career she’s been nominated 75 times and has won 14 awards in total.

Time magazine named Lizzo as their 2019 Entertainer of the Year stating, “In 2019, Lizzo was a beam of light shining through doom and gloom, telling us to love ourselves even if the world doesn’t always love us back. We needed her.”

We couldn’t agree more. Since she became a household name, Lizzo has always been a source for positivity and a good laugh.

 Here are just some of the reasons we adore Lizzo:

Her self-confidence and self-love

There’s no denying that Lizzo is unapologetic, both about her music and her body, and has become a symbol of positivity for people everywhere. In her music and across her social media, Lizzo is constantly encouraging people to be their best selves and to be confident and love themselves as they are.

Lizzo spoke to People in 2019 about how she regularly practices self-love, “I look in the mirror and say, I love you. You’re beautiful. You can do anything. Tell yourself that on your happy days so that you can have the strength to tell yourself that on your darker days.”

She’s authentic and honest 

While Lizzo is known as an incredibly positive person, she has also talked candidly about a range of issues including body dysmorphia, mental health, race, voter suppression, body image and fat shaming. Her fans really resonate with the fact that she is so open and honest about her ‘not so great’ moments and doesn’t try to hide them. 

In 2019, she shared a video on Instagram about her mental health issues and her struggles with depression; fans responded with lots of love and support in the comments and praised the singer for her honesty.

Her impeccable style

There is no doubt that Lizzo is a style icon. Whether it’s her red-carpet outfits, performance looks or even if she’s going to the airport, Lizzo looks incredible. She’s constantly rocking vibrant colours, the coolest accessories and some incredible statement pieces, showcasing her body and curves flawlessly.

 

Her body-normative advocacy

Lizzo doesn’t align with the ‘commercialised version of body-positivity that’s popular at the moment, instead talking about the less-known body normative movement. Body-positivity has had some toxic and negative moments over the years, and more people are looking for explore different movements like body-normativity, body-neutrality and body-acceptance. Hearing Lizzo speak so openly about the fact that she just wants her body to be normalised and accepted is a powerful thing.  

She told Vogue, "Now, you look at the hashtag ‘body positive’ and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity in what message is always about. I’m glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative.

"What I don’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it. Girls with back fat, girls with bellies that hang, girls with thighs that aren’t separated, that overlap. Girls with stretch marks. You know, girls who are in the 18-plus club.”
