Is The Body Positivity Movement Being Commercialised?
Grammy winner Lizzo starts a fresh conversation on the hot topic.
With her new interview in a popular magazine, Grammy award-winning singer Lizzo is seemingly wanting to start a new conversation around the term ‘body positivity.’ The movement, in case you’re unaware, aimed at relieving pressure from individuals, especially women, to be of a certain shape and size in order to feel accepted. But Lizzo believes that the movement has reached a point where it is being “commercialized.” The 32-year-old has said that the ‘body positivity’ movement all has been partially appropriated.
While speaking about the topic, the Truth Hurts singer said “It’s commercialized. 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.”
