Lizzo Celebrates Her Weight Gain: 'I Look TF Goodt'

And she gonna ride it, like a rodeo.

Lizzo

Lizzo has never been the one to shy away from her weight and so when she gained a few pounds she did the most Lizzo thing ever! On Sunday, the “Rumors” singer shared an Instagram and TikTok video of herself dancing in a chocolate bodysuit and see-through tights to the City Girls song “Rodeo” and in the caption, she revealed her weight gain.


“I gained weight💅🏾 I look TF GOODT😍,” she wrote.

Many of her fans agreed that the singer looked good and made it known in her comment section. Lizzo has always been real about her body and has been dismantling society’s views about how a woman’s body should look one photo at a time.

From flaunting her curvaceous figure on stage to posing seductively on Instagram, Lizzo puts it all on display. And while she has been celebrated for it, she also often experiences severe backlash for it.

In August, the 33-year-old broke down in tears after she faced scrutiny over her “Rumors” video with Cardi B. The singer was on Instagram Live addressing the “fat-phobic” and “racists” comments she received such as being called a “mammy.” The word “mammy” is an offensive term used to describe a Black woman who takes care of white children.

“If you don’t like my music, cool. If you don’t like ‘Rumors,’ the song, cool. But a lot of people don’t like me because of the way I look.” She later did a TikTok duet with a fan who called out people for criticizing the musician.

“This is exactly why I started off the song with ‘they don’t know I do it for the culture,’” Lizzo said. “These people who are saying this are probably the same people who are mad when I am being hypersexual, and the mammy trope is actually desexualized. So it can’t both be true. Make it make sense.”

“I think people are just mad to see a fat Black woman that makes pop music and is happy. Y’all are so upset that I am happy. But this doesn’t even bother me because Aretha Franklin was criticized by the Black church when she came out, Whitney Houston was booed, and Beyoncé received criticism early in her career,” she added.

“So you know what, the type of music that I make, I know I am making it to be great, making it to touch the world, and I don’t stick to any of these criticisms because I know the only person that I am serving is myself.”

Lately, it appears that the singer is feeling “Good as Hell” after ringing in the new year with a performance in Las Vegas.

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
