Lizzo Goes From Body Positive to Body Normative

Published

on

It doesn’t take a DNA test to show that Grammy award-winning singer Lizzo is that girl. With hit songs, fashion-forward ensembles, and confidence in her skin, Lizzo is making headlines and landing on music charts all around the world. 

Throughout her career path, she has been proud and unashamed of her color, queerness, and physique, with the term “body positivity.”

When you say body positivity, this means being able to accept bodies of all shapes and sizes without judgment or prejudice. A reason why this movement was born is that society holds women at a high standard and that the only acceptable body is that which resembles an hourglass. 

This has now made the term commercialized which Lizzo herself confirms after she seeing what the movement now entails whenever it is used as a hashtag on social media and other platforms.  

The 32-year-old Truth Hurts artist made several comments while celebrating her success of being the “first big black woman” to be on the cover of Vogue magazine. 

“You see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about,” she said. 

Lizzo added that what she doesn’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefitting from it, specifically the plus-size girls. 

She emphasizes that these girls, in particular, need to benefit from the mainstream effect of body positivity, especially now. But with everything that goes mainstream, the whole idea or concept is reduced until it becomes acceptable rather life-changing. 

Becoming body normative 

At this point, Lizzo considers it lazy of her to just say continue and say that she’s body positive. Being one of modern music’s most respected names, she is taking a step further by normalizing bigger bodies. 

She intends to do so by being body normative, a stance where she normalizes her body shape. Although it doesn’t bear the same ring to body positivity, Lizzo’s new approach is more inclusive as it makes it know that every body size is normal and that it demands respect as it should never be used as a tool for ridicule. 

“I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here. We have to make people uncomfortable again, so that we can continue to change,” she said. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the topic of body weight has resurfaced and is again on the agenda because a global analysis suggested that obesity doubled the risk of hospital treatment and increased the risk of dying by almost 50%.
