If we were to count all the ways we love Lizzo, we'd honestly be here all day, but most recently, she's yet again used her inspiring voice and powerful platform to shut down gross body-shaming happening on the internet.

The singer/body positivity champion/all-round icon took to TikTok to talk about something she's noticed while watching videos online, and is 100% not okay with.

“I just wanted to say I’ve seen a few of these videos about, you know, fat girls who eat healthy and stay active but can’t seem to lose weight,” Lizzo said, explaining that she thinks those videos are important “just to show that every single body is different and how it functions is different.”

She went on to highlight the body-shaming comments that sometimes spring up, and expertly shut them down.

“What really bothers me are the fake doctors in the comments saying: ‘Oh, you have this’ or ‘You might have this condition.' No. What if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body?”

Lizzo added that “bodies are not all designed to be slim with a six-pack.”

She signed off her video with a signature moment of pure feel-good body positivity.

“So if you’re feeling down on yourself today, just remember that your body is your body, nobody’s got your body, so enjoy that bitch," she said.

Say it louder for the people at the back, Lizzo!

It's, of course, far from the first time Lizzo has used her social media as a space to encourage everyone to love their bodies. She recently got super honest about her feelings towards her stomach in an empowering post and video.

"I started talking to my belly this year. Blowing her kisses and showering her with praises. I used to want to cut my stomach off I hated it so much. But it’s literally ME," Lizzo said.

"I am learning to radically love every part of myself. Even if it means talking to myself every morning. This is your sign to love on yourself today!"
