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?
Speaking to Brazil’s TV Folha, the ‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker said,
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, the recent subject of weight loss speculations, reiterates she couldn’t be more appreciative of the sacrifices of other women who created the platform for her to speak her mind. “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, during the recent Grammy Awards, the singer won the Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best Traditional R&B Performance. Whilst delivering the acceptance speech, Lizzo paid tribute to the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant who tragically passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on 26th January 2020.

I realized people are hurting right now.”
