Pop star Lizzo is a big advocate (no pun intended) for "body positivity" movement. However, she is now claiming that the movement is "commercialized" and leaving bigger women behind when they should be "normalizing" being fat.
During a recent Vogue interview, Lizzo said women featured in the movement aren't bide enough and that “girls with back fat, girls with bellies that hang, girls with thighs that aren’t separated” aren't being fairly represented.
“It’s commercialized. Now, you look at the hashtag ‘body positive,’ and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls," she continued, “And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about. I’m glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative.”
So....the movement isn't colored or fat enough?
“What I don’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it,” Lizzo said. “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.”
“They need to be benefiting from… the mainstream effect of body positivity now,” she continued. “But with everything that goes mainstream, it gets changed. It gets — you know, it gets made acceptable.”
“I think it’s lazy for me to just say I’m body positive at this point,” the plus-size celebrity declared. “It’s easy. I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalize my body, and not just be like, ‘Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.’ No, being fat is normal.”
“I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here,” Lizzo concluded. “We have to make people uncomfortable again, so that we can continue to change. Change is always uncomfortable, right?”
