Lizzo Faces Backlash For Taking Healthy Route
Lizzo is the queen of body positivity, but even she has those bad days.
The 32-year-old singer is facing backlash for promoting diet culture. This comes after the ‘Juice’ hitmaker shared posts of her doing a 10-day smoothie detox. Last week, Lizzo shared about experiencing ‘negative thoughts’ about her body. She posted a video of herself saying, ‘I know I’m beautiful, I just don’t feel it.’
After that video, the Grammy award winner took charge of her life. She recently went to Mexico and says that once she got back, it messed her stomach up and she did a smoothie detox to cleanse and reset her system.
During her cleanse she highlighted that it was important to do a safe detox. She captioned her videos saying, “Safe detoxification y’all.?” She then promoted JJ Smith’s 10-day smoothie detox.
The videos received mixed reviews in the comments. However, several fans felt betrayed by their ‘plus-size’ queen. Some fans stated that they were “disappointed” that she chose an “unhealthy” way to lose weight.
After receiving the backlash, Lizzo took to her TikTok to address the smoothie detox. According to Lizzo, she did the detox to inspire more “big girls” to what the f*ck they want to do with their bodies. In the caption, she wrote, “Big girls do whatever u want with your bodies!!! I’m just as proud of my results from my smoothie detox as I am of my belly curves and swerves…”
Lizzo followed-up with another video to say that she did not do the detox for dramatic weight loss. She also says that she is proud of her results, and got exactly what she was looking for out of the detox which improved sleep, hydration, inner peace, and mental stability.
