Lizzo is one of the most social media-savvy artists out there. The entertainer established herself as one of the best around. Recently, Lizzo took out some time to clap back at her critics who focus on her weight instead of her talent.

The “About Damn Time” singer admitted to Vanity Fair in her new cover story that while she has always been called fat, it was the insulting of her complete being that especially upset her.  Lizzo shared with the outlet,

“People have been calling me fat my entire life, but that was the first time seeing an insult of how I looked, who I am, and my music wrapped into one, and it really hurt me, and if one person says it, then another person says it, it multiplies like a f–king virus.” 

The “2 Be Loved” performer refused to repeat the insult because she doesn’t want her critics to know what “really hurt” her. She asserted that, “If enough people on the internet start echoing sentiments about you, it becomes part of your public persona, and it’s out of your control,” The musician believes it’s crucial to publicly share how she overcame her fiercest detractors because she wants to support people who might be suffering and can’t see a way out.

“I know I’m not the only person who experiences extreme negativity thrown at them from the internet—there are people in high school right now who have a whole high school talking about them, and they don’t know how they’re going to get through it.

“So if they can see me get through it on the level and the scale I’m experiencing it, maybe they’ll think they can get through it, too.”

The well-known flutist most recently gave a fitting reply to Kanye West after he made remarks about her size during an appearance with Tucker Carlson last week. Lizzo told the audience during her concert at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Friday.

“I feel like everybody in America got my motherf–king name in their motherf–king mouth for no motherf–king reason,” 

Lizzo certainly know how to shut down her critics. Meanwhile, you can check out her latest interview here. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
