Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll have noticed the massive impact that Lizzo is having on the music industry. From her incredible lyrics and her infectious beats, to her message of self-love, she's the breath of fresh air that we've all been waiting for. And Lizzo's live performances at the BET Awards and the VMAs made fans of A-listers like Rihanna and Queen Latifah. Even Beyonce can't resist her charms!
And now Lizzo has caused a stir online because she recently posted a series of photos of her completely in the nude. And, she looks good as hell, of course - and the rest of the internet totally agrees...
Lizzo was born Melissa Viviane Jefferson in Detroit in 1988.
She’s been making music for a long time (her debut album came out in 2013) but she’s only hit the mainstream fairly recently.
Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is a total masterpiece.
But it’s not just the brilliant music that she makes that has garnered Lizzo such a legion of fans.
There’s so much more to the star.
For one thing, she's totally unique.
Which other plus-size, dance-trained, hip-hop artist plays the flute in almost all of her songs?
Truly, Lizzo is one of a kind.
But what's even more important than her talent?
It’s gotta be Lizzo’s incredible message.
Her lyrics are all designed to inspire self-love and confidence – particularly in young women. In a world of problematic messages, she’s a real force for good.
In June, Lizzo stormed the stage at the BET Awards.
She performed her hit single “Truth Hurts,” wearing a leotard-wedding-dress – and blew the collective minds of the entire audience.
But just wait until you see these recent pics – Lizzo just keeps getting better and better!
Eagle-eyed fans noticed one thing.
There was one audience member at the BET Awards who was truly losing her mind over Lizzo’s performance – a certain Rihanna.
Lizzo performed a medley of her greatest hits.
And, to finish, also managed to preach a message of self-love to the eagerly awaiting audience.
And, again, Rihanna offered her support to Lizzo.
In one NSFW Instagram message, Lizzo claims that Rihanna “said I f**ked the stage like it was my side b***h. Don’t get mad, Rihanna. I am not trying to blow up your spot, but that was a hard a** line! I might take that line.”
And that's not Lizzo's only famous fan.
With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow. Hope you enjoy. pic.twitter.com/BS5ri1lvxz— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) August 24, 2019
Incredibly, the POTUS in our hearts, Barack Obama, tweeted his and Michelle’s (incredibly cool) summer playlist – and you best believe it included our gal.
It seems that there's no end in sight to Lizzo's reign.
Because her latest performance has garnered her yet another celebrity fan – the Queen herself, Beyonce.
It seems like Lizzo also gained a particularly high-profile fan.
As you’d probably expect, Jay-Z’s wife and sometime-collaborator. Beyonce was in attendance at the festival. She also performed – but her biggest moment took place backstage.
She showed the close up on Twitter.
At it gets even better.
And Lizzo's latest move has only cemented her further as the icon that she is.
After appearing on the cover of British Vogue’s December issue, Lizzo has become more body-confident than ever.
She has posed completely in the nude.
Yep, a naked Lizzo. What more could we ask for?
Now, our gal Lizzo is no stranger to showing off a bit of flesh...
Lizzo is known for her skimpy and revealing outfits, and it’s one of the reasons we love her so much.
She has shared many outrageous photos in the past...
Oh, and several videos of her teasing her naked body to the camera… Of course.
And she been known to shut down her haters in the most spectacular of fashions...
With booty selfies, of course!
She captioned this particular shot with “Kiss my ass, doh!” in response to the negative backlash over her nudes. Just another reason for you to add the “reasons to love Lizzo” list…
But her latest nude photoshoot is another level...
And simply so classy.
She shared 3 shots from the raunchy shoot...
Which portrayed her seductively sprawled across a plush velvet couch, with her hip-length hair artistically (and only just…) covering her modesty.
Lizzo is really rocking her birthday suit.
And she hilariously captioned the post, “Paint me like ya French b**ch.”
And, obviously, the post has caused quite a stir...
And has so far accumulated over a million likes and comments on Instagram.
People are living for her post.
And fans were quick to flood her page with comments of encouragement and compliments. One user wrote, “There are no words to describe how next level this is! Thank you for being unapologetic and unafraid. The world needs more Lizzo!!!” While another commented, “I love how you’re so confident in your body I wish I could be like you, you’re such an inspiration.”
Lizzo will always be the voice of the body positivity movement...
And we wouldn’t have her any other way. Never change, Lizzo!
