Tuesday Tunes: Lizzo


        My last LGBT+ artist in honor of PRIDE month is Lizzo. I came across Lizzo's work towards the end of last year, and I absolutely adore her. She is a queer, plus-sized black woman who doesn't give a damn what anyone else has to say. Her messages about body positivity and loving yourself are exactly what everyone should listen to. I also highly recommend watching all of her music videos. She features women of all sizes and shades, and it's such a refreshing look.

        My favorite song by her at the moment is "Fitness". It basically surrounds the idea that all the effort she is putting into her body is for her and no one else, and I can really relate to that. We live in a society that puts so much weight on appearances, and it's completely ridiculous. Anytime someone tries to change themselves, people assume it's for the world, but sometimes you just want to change for yourself. The lyrics, "Independent, athletic / I been sweating, doing calisthenics / Booty vicious, mind yo business / I been working, working on my fitness," really highlight the overall theme of Lizzo and most of her works.
