Lizzo was asked how she deals “with being obese every day” and couldn’t pass on the opportunity to feign horror as she described a day in her actual life.
An advocate for being “body normative” — “I want to normalize my body. And not just be like, ‘Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.’ No, being fat is normal,” she said in an interview with Vogue last fall — Lizzo shared an Instagram video on Saturday (March 6) addressing the question in a delightful way.
“I wake up into my obese bed,” she began. “I have to get like a king bed because I’m so obese.”
Looking at the camera and pretending to hold back tears (while also trying to hold back laughter), Lizzo continued, “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 sobbed. “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.”
Watch her fire back at the attempted body-shaming on Instagram. Her response even got some love from Beyoncé and Solange’s mom, who reacted with a few crying-laughing emojis and pointed out, “who ever asks that has an obesely stupid brain!!!”
