And she also shares moments of insecurity. "I came home and took my clothes off to take a shower, and I just started having all these really negative thoughts about myself, like, ‘What’s wrong with me? Maybe all the mean things people say about me are true. Why am I so disgusting?' Hating my body."
In other words, she keeps it real — like actually, real — on TikTok.
Well, last week, Lizzo shared that she was doing a 10-day smoothie detox. "I drank a lot and ate a lot of foods, and fucked my stomach up in Mexico, so I decided to do JJ Smith's 10-day smoothie cleanse," she said, while sharing a glimpse of the plan.
"It's just basically you drink these green smoothies every day," she said, adding that Day 4, 5, and 6 were the hardest.
Well, soon, people criticized Lizzo for participating in and promoting a smoothie cleanse and ultimately, diet culture.
Lizzo responded on TikTok to the backlash, saying, "In reality, November stressed me the fuck out. I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that fucked my stomach up. I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was," she said.
"I’m proud of my results. My sleep has improved, my hydration, my inner peace, my mental stability, my fucking body, my fucking skin, the whites of my eyes. I feel and look like a bad bitch, and that’s it."
"I’m a big girl who did a smoothie detox, and I wanted to share it with you guys," she added. "And every big girl should do whatever the fuck they want with their bodies.”
