Lizzo has slammed body-shaming trolls in her bikini by telling them ‘this body is art’.
The singer, whose real name is Melissa Vivianne Jefferson, is best known for her chart-topping hits ‘Truth Hurts’ and ‘About Damn Time’.
The 34-year-old, who is also a three-time Grammy winner, is unapologetically proud of her body.
However, Lizzo says she’s ‘officially tired’ of people commenting on her body and has now hit back at them on social media.

In a video she posted to Instagram, Lizzo hits back at those who like to make comments about her physical appearance.
She says she faces constant conflicting criticism, from ‘you’re so big’ to ‘you’re so little’.
“The discourse around bodies is officially tired,” she began.
“I have seen comments go from, ‘Oh my gosh, I liked you when you were thick. Why’d you lose weight?’ to ‘Oh my gosh, why’d you get a BBL? I liked your body before’.

“‘Oh my gosh, you’re so big! You need to lose weight – but for your health!’ to ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so little you need to get a** or t**ies or something.’
“‘Oh my gosh, why did she get all that work done? It’s just too much work.’
“Are we OK? Do you see the delusion?
“Artists are not here to conform to your beauty standards, artists are here to make art.
“And this body? Is art,” she says. “And I’m going to do whatever I want with this body.”
The ‘Juice’ hitmaker said people wouldn’t make such comments if they had to pay to post them.
She said: “I wish that comments cost y’all money.
“So we could see how much time we’re f***ing wasting on the wrong thing.”
Lizzo has previously said that she wants to ‘redefine’ the body positivity movement.
Speaking to Vogue, Lizzo said that while she’s pleased the movement is now a hot topic, she thinks it doesn’t benefit those it was originally created for anymore.
“It’s commercialised,” she said. “Now, you look at the hashtag ‘body positive’, and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls.

“Lotta white girls. And I feel no way about that because inclusivity is what my message is always about.
“I’m glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative.

“What I don’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefitting from it.”
Lizzo believes the solution lies in people becoming ‘body-normative’.
She said: “I want to normalise my body. And not just be like, ‘Oh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.
“No, being fat is normal.”
