Yesterday, Lizzo took the world by storm when she posted a series of nude photos and videos on Instagram.
The singer is no stranger to sharing spicy photos on social media, but her latest posts stepped it up a notch. In the pictures, the singer posed nude while sitting on an orange velvet couch, adding a caption that’s a reference to the movie Titanic: “Paint me like ya French bitch.”
Not long after that, Lizzo also shared a short clip of her crawling towards the camera with the caption “Omw.” Of course, Lizzo fans went wild in the comments, while some loved the pictures so much that they made paintings out of them.
Lizzo’s Instagram posts follow comments she made to The Guardian last month. Addressing the lack of media representation in regards to plus-size bodies and the impact this has had on her mental health, she said,
“You want to look like those things and when you realize it’s a physical impossibility you start to think, ‘What the fuck is wrong with me?’ I think that took a bigger toll on me, psychologically, growing up than what anyone could have said to me.”
Lizzo also covered the December issue of British Vogue, with editor Edward Enninful stating on Instagram that, “I’m so pleased that inclusivity remains at the core of British Vogue. Seeing someone as amazing as Lizzo on a magazine cover has at last begun to feel normal. How incredible is that?”
Apart from being a body-positive icon, Lizzo has a lot to celebrate this year. Recently, the singer dominated the Grammy’s with five nominations — for Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year.
