Body-positivity icon Lizzo recently shared a response on TikTok to one user seeking other people pursuing a fitness journey who are not simply trying to “escape fatness.” “Heavy on the not trying to escape fatness,” Lizzo begins the TikTok. “I just wanted to stitch this (video with mine) to show support to you because this creator, specifically, said, ‘I’m looking for people that I can resonate with.’ (I’m the) very, very same,” she reveals.
Lizzo then goes on to explain, “I have a very high-performance job, for 90 minutes a night I have to do choreography, I have to sing, I have to dance, I have to rap, and I have to play the flute. And I have to emote, and hype a crowd. In very tight clothes.” “sometimes clothes where it restricts my breathing,” the musician laughs. “It’s fun, I love my job. It takes a lot of physical endurance to do what I do,” she says. She explains, “as i got more professional in my career, i started to take the physical part more seriously.” “I’ve always loved moving my body, I’ve always loved working out. Ive always been super into being holistic-conscious, cuz when you say health-conscious it becomes very loaded,” she shares.
Lizzo Works Out For Her Mental Health
“I am very hippy-dippy and woo-woo when it comes to food and supplements and just thinking about my body and the environment,” she reveals. Lizzo explains, “a lot of people see a fat person that way and immediately just assume everything they’re doing is to be thin.” “I’m not trying to be thin, I don’t ever want to be thin,” she says.
The performer continues, saying, “Will I get a little smaller depending on some of the choices I make, or a little bigger depending on some of the choices I make in my life? Yes. I’m used to fluctuating, however, the goal is always [mental health].” She later shared that working out for her mental health has helped her shift her outlook. Lizzo also explained how she feels as though humans naturally fluctuate physically throughout their lives, saying it’s just, “what the human existence is.”
