Lizzo has been flooded with positive messages and thanks yous from fans after she opened up about having ‘negative thoughts’ about her body. Posting a video on TikTok, Lizzo shared that she knows it’s not normal to be positive 100% of the time.

“I came home, and I took my clothes off to take a shower, and I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself,” she shared.

“Like, you know, ‘What’s wrong with me? Maybe everything, all the mean things people say about me are true.’ And, you know, ‘Why am I so disgusting?’ and hating my body.” Lizzo said she’d normally be able to get out of this kind of thought spiral by telling herself something positive, but it didn’t work this time “and that’s okay, too.”

“I think these are normal,” she continued. “They happen to everybody. They happen to the best of us. We are the best of us. And I just have to know that tomorrow how I feel in here is gonna change. And I can only hope that it changes for the better. But I know I’m beautiful. I just don’t feel it. But I know I’m going to get through it.”

Lizzo received a huge amount of positive comments as fans thanked her for being so open, with one writing, “Thank you for this moment of vulnerability. So real…I hope soon you see yourself like so many of us do. A beautiful, funny and talented queen.”

Afterwards, Lizzo then shared a video all about self-love on Instagram, saying, “Wild to see the body positive movement come so far. Proud of the big girls who gave it wings. My body is changing but I’m gonna keep appreciating it from every angle.”

You just have to love her.
