Latest Hollywood Gossip: Lizzo Thinks There’s A “Double Standard” When She’s Called “Brave” For Being Confident
We are so glad Lizzo was wise enough to decode the “double standard” when she’s called “brave” just for being confident. While the “Truth Hurts” singer is an advocate for body positivity, she isn’t particularly too impressed when people express shock when they find out that she’s comfortable with her frame. In an interview with Glamour Magazine, she said:
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not,'” she told the publication. “I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy. If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.”
Lizzo further detailed how modeling agencies were the only source of getting women on the forefront of magazines and advertising campaigns, portraying a false reality of women’s bodies.
“I think that’s why it made everything so limited for what was considered beautiful,” she explained. “It was controlled from this one space. But now we have the internet. So if you want to see somebody who’s beautiful who looks like you, go on the internet and just type something in. Type in blue hair. Type in thick thighs. Type in back fat. You’ll find yourself reflected. That’s what I did to help find the beauty in myself.”
