The musician narrated a video of her exercising on the social media platform with a message to those who comment on her body.
“So I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years and it may come as a surprise to y’all, but I’m not working out to have your ideal body type,” Lizzo began. “I’m working out to have my ideal body type and you know what type that is? None of your fucking business, cos I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job and I stay on my job.”
