Lizzo Celebrates Her Weight Gain: 'I Look TF GOODT'

The singer danced to "Rodeo" for an Instagram post, and fans are loving it.

Amid what feels like a barrage of New Years resolution-inspired messaging about resetting your diet, losing weight, or working on a "new you," Lizzo is here with the most refreshing take for 2022. True to form, the songstress shared a video on the second day of the new year, in which she dances brown bodysuit and full glam. Instead of some reference to "new beginnings," she captioned the post "I gained weight💅🏾 I look TF GOODT😍."

Of course, Lizzo's message of self-love has always been one of the many reasons fans love her so much. The singer's openness about embracing her body throughout all its changes runs counter to messaging that weight gain is always negative should be avoided at all costs. So for Lizzo to celebrate her changing body instead of feeling ashamed of it? Frankly, that's "good as hell," and it's reset many people need — especially at the start of a new year. (

Naturally, heart-eyes and fire emojis rolled in from all corners of the internet, with fans and followers weighing in on her dance session. "Ugh this just made me feel better I love you!" wrote one commenter, adding, "she just makes you look in the mirror and go damn I look good too." In response to that comment, another user added, "💯💯💯 felt the same way. Because she's🔥🔥af. Sexy af."

Another wrote, "Happy weight I know that's right🙌." Yet another echoed those thoughts, writing, "damnnn she do look good! Honestly as a person who was just feeling a little down today because of realizing the weight I gained, this is so empowering."

Lizzo has been candid about her own body image for years, and has shared her overall take on the body positivity movement, which she's noted has been co-opted by "medium and small girls and people who occasionally get rolls," as she shared on TikTok. "Fat people are still getting the short end of this movement," despite the fact that the body-positivity movement was created by "big brown and Black women, queer women," she argues in the video.

Lizzo aims to help normalize bodies like hers, so that people will stop calling her "brave" for simply being happy with who she is, she told Vogue in 2020. "I think it's lazy for me to just say I'm body positive at this point," she said in the interview. "It's easy. I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalize my body. Now, you look at the hashtag 'body positive,' and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about. I'm glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative. What I don't like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it. Girls with back fat, girls with bellies that hang, girls with thighs that aren't separated, that overlap. Girls with stretch marks. You know, girls who are in the 18-plus club."
