Lizzo started talking to her belly this year

Lizzo has been honest about her insecurities over the years. In 2019, she opened up on actress Jameela Jamil's podcast I Weigh about feeling pressure to look like somebody else. "I had this entire fantasy about waking up and being like, Sailor Moon. Completely unrealistic goals," Lizzo reflected. "I had been working on [being thin] for so long and so hard and wanting my body to match my face and be this certain body type." 

On Feb. 3, 2021, Lizzo revealed what she's been doing to practice self-love. "I started talking to my belly this year," Lizzo said in an Instagram post. "I used to want to cut my stomach off, I hated it so much. But it's literally ME." 

Lizzo continued that she is learning to "radically love" every part of herself — even if that means repeating affirmations out loud and blowing kisses at her physique in the mirror. In the video, she thanks her stomach for "keeping me happy, for keeping me alive." 

Model Ashley Graham, comedian Ilana Glazer, and singer Erykah Badu shared their support for Lizzo in the comments. "Power power powerful phenomenon," Broad City star Glazer responded. As Lizzo continues to share her journey to self-love, it's clear she will forever be a role model to both her fans and colleagues.
