Many people are of the view that, when one decides to take better care of themselves, it is because they do not appreciate who they are, or they are doing these changes because someone said so. Well, Lizzo is unapologetically addressing her critics in a new TikTok video. She is rightfully calling out all the body shamers who are constantly on her case even now as she has decided to work on herself for herself.

In the video, the vivacious superstar addresses ‘her haters’ in true Lizzo style over her daily workouts.

“Hey, so I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years, and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type,” Lizzo said. “I’m working out to have my ideal body type, and you know what type that is? None of your f–king business, because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job and I stay on my job.”

The decision to work out is a personal choice and one can really achieve a long-lasting result if it is self-motivated and self-driven. Lizzo went all-in with the social media critics.

“So next time you wanna come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own f–king self and worry about your own goddamn body,” the 32-year-old Grammy winner continued.

Working out has so many merits including building one’s mental health and psychology. It’s sure it’s beyond one’s physical appearance.

“Health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside,” the “Truth Hurts” artist said. “Health is also about what happens on the inside. And a lot of y’all need to do a f–king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day.”
