Lizzo’s weight and body type have often stolen the spotlight away from her immense musical talent — and it looks like that isn’t changing anytime soon.

On Monday (December 13), the Grammy Award-winning artist found herself a trending Twitter topic after she shared a pair of TikTok videos revealing she’d just completed a 10-day smoothie fast. In one clip, she shows her progression from Day 1 to Day 10 and explains why she embarked on the crash diet.

“So I drank a lot and I ate a lot of food that fucked my stomach up in Mexico,” she says in the clip. “So I decided to do JJ Smith’s 10-day smoothie plan.”

But as the backlash ensued, with some women accusing her of being a “fatphobe,” Lizzo evidently felt the need to expound on what led her to take such an extreme route to lose weight.

“I did the 10-day smoothie detox and as you know, normally I’d be so afraid and ashamed to post things like this online, because I feel like as a big girl, people just expect if you’re doing something for health, you’re doing it for some dramatic weight less and that is not the case,” she said in a follow-up video. “In reality, November stressed me the fuck out. I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things that fucked my stomach up and I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was.

“I’m so proud of myself. I’m proud of my results. My sleep has improved. My hydration, my inner peace, my mental stability, my fuckin’ body, my fuckin’ skin, the whites of my eyes — I feel like I look like a bad bitch and I think, that’s it. I’m a big girl who does smoothie detox and I wanted to share that with you guys. I got exactly what I wanted out of it and every big girl should do whatever the fuck they want with their bodies.

Despite Lizzo’s best attempts at being honest about her decision to do the diet, people still pounced on her, sparking a heated debate on social media. Some claimed she had essentially failed as a role model for body positivity, while others chastised her critics. But as she made clear in her TikTok caption, it’s up to women what they want to do with their bodies.

“Big girls do whatever u want with your bodies!!!” she added. “I’m just as proud of my results from my smoothie detox as I am of my belly curves and swerves.”
