In her latest interview with Rolling Stone, Lizzo opened up about her struggle with body dysmorphia and self-doubt. Appearing on the magazine’s cover in a nude bodysuit with embroidered flowers, the singer discussed the pressures she felt to slim down during a particularly toxic relationship at 19. “He was like, ‘I’m a little guy. I need a little girl’.” After a brief attempt at emulating Zooey Deschanel, Lizzo came to the realisation that you “can’t just wake up and be a white girl.”
Lizzo is fast becoming the most relatable woman on the planet. Through her unparalleled rise to fame over the last year, she has gained a cult following of young women who live for her no-BS attitude and candid chat on body image and self-love.
