Lizzo recently opened up about the double standard women face regarding body positivity. The singer called out the issues she sees in Hollywood and the beauty industry.
In an interview with Glamour, the 31-year-old said she doesn't want to be called "brave" for having self-confidence.
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not.’ I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy,” she told the publication.
The "Juice" songstress added, "If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.”
She added, "I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it.”
The Hustlers star credits social media for helping ignite the change in how society perceives beauty.
“Back in the day, all you really had were the modeling agencies. I think that’s why it made everything so limited for what was considered beautiful. It was controlled from this one space,” she told the outlet. “But now we have the internet. So if you want to see somebody who’s beautiful who looks like you, go on the internet and just type something in. Type in ‘blue hair.’ Type in ‘thick thighs.‘ Type in ‘back fat.‘ You’ll find yourself reflected. That’s what I did to help find the beauty in myself.”
