Lizzo Wants People To Feel Closeness With Her Music

Lizzo Wants People To Feel Closeness With Her Music

Lizzo looks gorgeous for the first 2019 digital cover package of Allure!

Here is what the 30-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On fans feeling her music is like a best friend cheering them on: “I want people to feel that closeness, because if you can love me as much as you do without knowing me, and without me being like this archetype of modern beauty in media, then you can love yourself.”

On not having sympathy for members of the fashion industry reluctant to get it together when it comes to the plus-size market: “If you’re not making clothes for me, and if you don’t want to make clothes for me, I don’t want to wear your [designs]. I look good in other [things] anyway. But call me if you want to dress me. If you want to change the game and dress a fat body, call me.”

On defying traditional beauty norms: “The body-positive movement is the body-positive movement, and we high five. We’re parallel. But my movement is my movement. When all the dust has settled on the groundbreaking-ness, I’m going to still be doing this. I’m not going to suddenly change. I’m going to still be telling my life story through music. And if that’s body positive to you, amen. That’s feminist to you, amen. If that’s pro-black to you, amen. Because ma’am, I’m all of those things.”
