Lizzo got real with fans as she stripped down to share an unedited and unfiltered photo of herself nude on Instagram.
In the picture, seen here, she said, “Now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted show u how I do it au natural. I am excited to be partnering with @dove and the #DoveSelfEsteemProject which is helping to reverse the negative effects of social media and changing the conversation about beauty standards. Let’s get real y’all [sic].”
Lizzo also said in a statement to E! News: “I love how this generation is so creative in the ways in which they express themselves. It’s really inspiring to see how people are taking their identity and their beauty into their own hands.
“However, people are struggling with their self-image and self-confidence more than ever. This is amplified by the increasing pressure to show a digitally distorted version of ourselves, reinforcing the idea that our beauty in real life is not good enough or worthy of likes. That’s why The Dove Self-Esteem Project and I want you to have The Selfie Talk with a young person in your life. It’s happening to young people everywhere, so let’s talk about it.”
