‘Boys’ singer Lizzo speaks out against body-shaming and the marginalization of women

Lizzo has slammed the hypocrisy of body-shaming men.

The 31-year-old singer – who has become a high-profile advocate for body positivity over recent years – has taken aim at male body-shamers, saying that men don’t face the same level of scrutiny as their female counterparts. She said: “What does that tell you about the oppressor? What does that tell you about men? Get it together, we don’t talk about your d**k sizes, do we?”

Lizzo feels that historically, strong women have always been marginalized by society.

The ‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker told Brazil’s TV Folha: “I don’t think I’m any different than any of the other great women who’ve come before me that had to literally be politicized just to be sexual … you know what I mean? Just to exist.”

Lizzo insisted she truly appreciates the efforts and sacrifices of other women who have allowed her to speak her mind. She said: “Things that were beautiful on them were called flaws, and they persisted against that, fought against that, and now I’m able to do what I do because of those great women.”

Meanwhile, Lizzo recently claimed her priorities have shifted since Kobe Bryant’s death.

The singer paid tribute to the late sports star – who died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, in January – during the Grammy Awards, where she won the Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best Traditional R&B Performance gongs.

As she collected her Best Pop Solo Performance award, Lizzo told the crowd: “I want to say this whole week I was lost in my problems and then in an instant, all that can go away and your priorities really shift.

“Today all the little problems I thought were as big as the world was gone. I realized people are hurting right now.”
