Lizzo spent years feeling ‘ashamed’ and ‘undesirable’ due to a lack of body inclusivity

Lizzo has openly criticised the lack of body acceptance in the music and fashion sectors and said that she once did not think she was “attractive.”

The 34-year-old American singer acknowledged that for years she felt “embarrassed” and didn’t believe she possessed the “qualities” to succeed as a pop star because she believed others wouldn’t want to look like her.

“I know people want to look like me now. But I’m talking about what it was like in my formative years. I wasn’t really set up to believe that I was desirable,” she told Elle UK.

“For me, being a pop star – part of it is people either want to be you or be with you.

“And I didn’t feel like I had any of those qualities.”

Lizzo claimed that her fears were so severe that she wished there were others on the stage with her so that attention wouldn’t always be on her. She admits she used to feel ‘ashamed’ about her body.

She further said: “I always felt like, even if the song is great, people wouldn’t want to hear it coming from me.”

“So I thought, if I have other people on stage, too, that will take the focus off me a little bit.”

She is urging the fashion industry to ensure that people of all shapes and sizes can fit into their outfits in order to increase visibility for those who might not look like runway models.

Lizzo stated that although she is only one person, it has been an honour for brands and labels to create ensembles specifically for her.

“What about the millions of people who are my size or bigger who can’t get access to chic and glamorous clothing?” she asked.

“I don’t want to be the token big girl for the fashion world. I want to open the door. I want this for everybody.”

She’s spoken about how she has an amazing team who keep her grounded.

In an interview with Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM, hosted by DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angel Yee, Lizzo said: “I have the most genuine people around me.

“They don’t give a s**t about ‘Lizzo’ with the chain on.

“They care about ‘Melissa’, and everyone I’m close with has known me before all of this happened and I think that’s important.”

Lizzo says she’s in a relationship that’s ‘not monogamous’ because traditional ones ‘scare’ her

When asked about her relationship with her lover Myke Wright, Lizzo said it was “not monogamous” on the radio program “The Breakfast Club.” Lizzo said that she prefers a relationship that is centered on love rather than restrictions when co-host Charlamagne Tha God questioned her about her personal life.

“Monogamy, I think to me, is a little claustrophobic. I think because there are the rules,” Lizzo said.

She added that the idea of being in a “traditional relationship” for 10 years scared her, but the concept of loving someone for that long, or forever, felt better.

“I can love somebody forever,” she said.

“I think a love relationship that’s not monogamous has no rules,” Lizzo – whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson – continued. “I think people who do poly and all that stuff – there’s still rules. I don’t want any rules.”

Host Yee then asked: “What if [her boyfriend] was like, ‘I just want us to be in a monogamous relationship — just me and you. I don’t want you to be with anyone else,'” to which Lizzo replied: “We can still have that – just not call it monogamy.”

When Charlamagne probed her further about the nature of their connection, she responded that it is solely based on their love for one another: “Just love. ‘I just love you.’ I’m not worried about nobody else.”

“I’m not worried about anybody else sexually, romantically, emotionally. I’m just worried about you. I’m just thinking about you,” the ‘Juice’ singer stated.

Lizzo also discussed her friendships since being famous on the popular program, saying that she has “the most sincere individuals” who “don’t give a s*** about ‘Lizzo’ with the chain on” are present around her. They care about “Melissa” “.

The singer also talked openly about Myke Wright, her current partner, whom she knew before she rose to fame. She described them as pals and claimed that when they knew them prior to 2019, “it hit differently.”

The Grammy-winning singer also discussed how love “saved her life” – not literally, but because it helped alter her perspective on things.

“Saving your life can also mean your life was headed in one direction and now it’s going in this direction which is a much better healthier, safer, happier place because of love,” Lizzo said.

The ‘About Damn Time’ singer acknowledged that navigating her A-list reputation can be challenging, but in April, she said that Myke’s stardom is “not even a consideration” in her relationship with him.

“If you have the right person, no, not at all,” she said. “It should be mutually supportive no matter what that person does.”
