Lizzo is clearly comfortable in her own skin. So, when a curious commenter on Instagram live asked her, “how does she deal with being obese everyday?” the “Truth Hurts” singer responded with a humorous play-by-play account of her larger-than-life lifestyle.
“I wake up into my obese bed,” she says. “I have to get like a king bed because I’m so obese.”
While pretending to weep, she continues, “I put on my obese Louis Vuitton house slippers, and I walk into my massive, obese bathroom and I just stare into my wall-to-wall, obese mirror and lather myself in the most obese, expensive oils and creams, and oh, god, I walk into my obese, gorgeous, mid-century modern kitchen, and by the time I’ve made it into my kitchen, I’ve already made another obese million dollars.”
“My bank account is so fat,” she whimpers. “My bank account is so obese, and, like, I tried to put it on a diet but she’s just so stubborn, like, she won’t listen.”
Lizzo is used to the body shamers and “comment section doctors” that exist on the social media app. Last summer, she shared a video on Instagram of herself exercising. It included a detailed caption dedicated to people like her who are bullied because of their weight.
“IDGAF about trolls that body shame me,” she wrote. “I do this for the people who get body shamed every single day who don’t have my platform or have the same path to confidence i had. I know that I am here to defend and represent y’all. Because I love y’all and I dont want y’all to go through the self hatred I went through. And if posting my journey and cussing ignorant insecure wannabe ‘comment section doctors’ out is what I gotta do to make sure fat shaming is shamed then that’s what I’m gonna do.”
