How Lizzo’s Twerking in a Thong Became World’s Biggest Problem

by Tracy Finke

Twitter may have been shocked by the outfit that the singer Lizzo wore at the Lakers game, but she feels “damn good.” Lizzo appeared in a first row in a dress that in front is just a plain dress, but the back is actually open. She twerked in thongs and caused real chaos that has not subsided since Sunday.

What is the problem here, and could the hole that reveals the bottom and thongs of the singer have gone unnoticed if she wasn’t a plus-size person?

Twitter has got lit with controversy about Lizzo’s weight. Social media users were arguing over whether such exhibitionism is decent, and Lizzo thinks she is being judged harsher by the fact that she is “overweight”.

“This is not about Lizzo being fat, twerking, or hating on her. This is about her seeking attention, coming into an arena with kids and family dressed inappropriately,” one tweet read.

On the other hand, there is an army of those who praised her for the boldness she showed.

“If you need to start your criticism with – it’s not because she’s black and fat – chances are you know very little about fat black women”, another reads.

Some gave the example of stars with similar provocative editions, such as the transparent dress that Rihanna wore at the CFDA Fashion Awards in 2014. That didn’t bother anyone then.

Lizzo herself made Instagram live, saying that people that don’t like a particular part of her body can kiss her in that part.

“Who I am and the essence of me and the things that I choose to do as a grown-a** woman can inspire you to do the same,” the singer began. “You don’t have to be like me. You need to be like you. And never ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself”, Lizzo said.

She continued: “This is who I’ve always been. Now everyone’s looking at it. And your criticism can just remain your criticism. Your criticism has no effect on me. Negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, I’m surrounded by love”.

The rapper has been promoting a positive attitude towards her body since the beginning of her career and has gained a fan army in no time.

Since moving to Minneapolis in 2011 and trying to break into the music scene there, she has been through a difficult period – living in her car and practicing obsessively. With the “Lizzobangers” album in 2013, everything went uphill. She released her third album this year, and she finally received great acclaim – TIME magazine named her the Entertainer of the Year 2019.
