Singer and rapper Lizzo makes it a point to preach self-love in her songs, and now she’s taking her advocacy and bad-assery a step further.
Lane Byrant’s #ThisBody campaign is a body positivity movement promoting the launch of the Prabal Gurung x Lane Bryant collection. Female artists of color including Lizzo, Ashlee Haze and Akira Armstrong appeared in a series of photos and videos explaining how their bodies inspire them. Lizzo is comfortable showing off her style in the fashion world (which she proved in her photoshoot with BUST).
In the Lane Bryant campaign, Lizzo looks fierce sporting a white t-shirt that reads, “MY ACTIVISM INSPIRED BY #THISBODY.”
Her song, “Good as Hell,” appeared on the Barbershop soundtrack and aims to encourage women to love themselves, despite what their insecurities (or ex-boyfriends) tell them.
Even more fitting, her 2015 album Big Grrrl Small World, and accompanying song 'B.G.S.W.' unapologetically praises big women.
It’s bigger than the sun and the moon
I can feel it in my bones, we can take over the world
And all my big girls tell it
Let the big girls tell it
Back in July, when “Good as Hell” was released she told Phoebe Robinson on her podcast Sooo Many White Guys, “Right now my mission is to put women of color, and natural girls, and all kinds of black girls, and big girls on a platform.”
