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.
“Get it together, we don’t talk about your d**k sizes, do we?”— Lizzo
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?”
Sacrifices of other women
Lizzo feels that historically, strong women have always been marginalised 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 politicised 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.”
