Lizzo has never and will never be here for body shaming, y’all. The “Good as Hell” singer took to TikTok on Tuesday to address body-shamers on the platform, saying that she has “been working out consistently for the last five years” and shutting down the toxic idea that anyone else’s opinion on your body matters but your own.

“I’m not working out to have your ideal body type,” the 32-year-old singer said on the platform. “I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f***ing business.”

“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***ing self and worry about your own goddamn body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside.”

Lizzo is no stranger to promoting body positivity or clapping back against haters on the app. Last week, she posted a video sharing her thoughts on people commenting her name under videos of “big girls,” emphasizing that she loves it.

“Every time there is a big girl on this app, I find that people always put my name in the comments. And to the people who be putting my name in the comments, thank you,” Lizzo said.

“Because you know what? If every time you see a big girl on this app, loving on herself and putting herself out there and being confident and loving her body, you think of me. Or you think she looks like me,” the singer continued,” bitch, that is a what? Compliment.”
