Lizzo feels so good about herself. The singer from “Truth Hurts” is again making the headlines after being seen on the basketball game between Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
During the performance of the Laker Girls with her song “Juice,” Lizzo joined them and twerked with them in her famous soundtrack, and that revealed that she was wearing only a t-shirt dress with cut-outs and showed her back entirely. The singer was wearing a pair of fishnet tights, a matching black thong to go with it.
The crowd was cheering, and many reacted positively online, but others felt were scandalized. By Monday morning, Lizzo’s name was already trending on Twitter.
On Monday night, she made a cryptic tweet about the debate regarding what she wore on Sunday night during the game. There were many criticisms against her, and she was in the process of recovering from the pain that she felt emotional.
She shared, “Think about how it feels to stub your toe. It hurts, but the pain eventually goes away,” she wrote. “Pain is temporary, it’s the feeling that remains that matters. Really pay attention to who u r when ur neutral & nurture yourself… Because that’s who’ll always be there when the pain fades.”
Many of her fans supported her and appreciated her words. A lot of them thought it might be because of the backlash of the Sunday’s occurrence. The singer also was addressing another controversy through her Instagram Live on Monday Night. Who I am and the essence of me and the things I choose to do as a grown-ass woman can inspire you to do the same,” she said. “You don’t have to be like me; you need to be like you and never let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself. This is who I’ve always been.” “Who I am, and the essence of me and the things I choose to do as a grown-ass woman can inspire you to do the same.”
She added “It doesn’t matter what goes down on the internet, nothing breaks my joy,”
“Your criticism does not affect me,” she continued. “Negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m surrounded by love, and I want to spread that love — and also spread these cheeks. And you know what? If you really, really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it. Because kissing it makes it go away. I promise.”
Lizzo has been lauded about her being a positive body icon and preaching about self-love. Fans debated that if she had been thinner, she wouldn’t get those kinds of harsh reactions. The media may have expressed that as “fatphobia”.
On the recent issue, people are comparing what Lizzo wore compared with the cheerleaders and other celebrities during sports events, and they argue how much of the body should be covered and what “family-friendly” venues mean.
Also, on Monday, Lizzo released a new music video from her song “Good as Hell”.
