Lizzo has truly lifted our spirits with an empowering video about self-love and her “ideal body type” being “none of our f***ing business”.

The Truth Hurts singer posted a compilation of herself working out at home on TikTok on Tuesday night, along with the message: “If you’re not a fat shamer… keep scrolling… OK now that all the fat shamers are here.”

Narrating the video, she continued: “Hey, so I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type. I’m working out to have my ideal body type, and you know what type that is? None of your fucking business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job.

“So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s or workout or not workout, how about you look at your own fucking self and worry about your own goddamn body.

“Because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside, health is also what happens on the inside. And a lot of y’all need to do a fucking cleanse for your insides.”

“Namaste, have a great day,” she ended the clip, which has already won her a legion of applause on social media:

Lizzo previously sang about her relationship with exercise on her 2018 single Fitness, celebrating a range of different body types in the track’s accompanying music video.

Describing Fitness at that time, Lizzo said: ”[Fitness] is my Declaration of Independence from the bullshit! I hope to inspire women all over to put themselves first. And next time someone has a critique about you or your body, say ‘I don’t do this for you’!”
