American singer Lizzo, who has been an agent for body positivity for years, is taking her campaign to new heights with an unedited nude photo of herself…
The songstress posted the picture on Instagram this week under the caption; “Welcome to Taurus season, to celebrate I wanna give y’all this unedited selfie… now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted to show u how I do it au natural,”
In the photo, Lizzo is seated in a comfy chair, completely nude. Her hair is strategically placed to cover her breasts, and she’s holding a coffee cup that resembles butt cheeks.
Lizzo has struggled with body image for much of her youth, but now she is one of the biggest names rallying for change. She believes that being fat does not necessarily mean you’re unhealthy. She says she a lover of fruit and works out on the regular.

The caption went on to say, “I am excited to be partnering with @dove and the #DoveSelfEsteemProject which is helping to reverse the negative effects of social media and changing the conversation about beauty standards. Let’s get real y’all”

Just last month, she shared a TikTok on why videos about active fat girls who eat well matter. “These videos are important to show every single body is different and how it functions is different,” she said. “What really bothers me are the fake doctors in the comments saying oh you have this or you might have this condition… No! What if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body? Bodies are not all designed to be slim with a six-pack.”
