(ConservativeSense.com) – Musician Lizzo said she might quit music because of the insults she receives online. The star said she is constantly bombarded with messages about her weight, and “it’s really starting to make me hate the world.” Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, celebrates her weight and has added her voice to the “body positive” movement. She said people assume she wants to be thin or that she is unhealthy, but she insists she eats nutritious food and works out, and has no desire to lose weight.
In 2020, the Grammy award winner documented a smoothie diet she undertook. It lasted ten days and she uploaded videos about how she felt on TikTok. Some followers objected saying she was encouraging an unhealthy diet culture. She responded stating, “Every big girl should do whatever they want with their bodies.” However, she added that the diet had improved her sleep, skin, and mental stability.
Despite her self-love and body positivity message, Lizzo has tried several diets and reported losing 50 pounds in March 2023. In a Vanity Fair interview, she confirmed that she sticks to a healthy diet and her health is a priority. She did concede however that life can sometimes knock her off balance. “I eat when I’m stressed out, sometimes to the point where I didn’t realize how much I ate. Anything can be harmful, but it comforts me in a way,” she declared.
The Detroit native rose to fame in 2019 with the release of her album Cuz I Love You. She has been involved in music since childhood and formed her own group Lizzo and the Larva Ink, in 2011. The accomplished flutist released her fourth album in 2022 to critical acclaim. Her single About Damn Time won Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards the same year.
She provoked outrage in the past when she said she did not make music for white people.
