& # 39; When people look at my body and say: & # 39; Oh my god, she is so brave & # 39 ;, it is so of: & # 39; No, I am not & # 39 ;, Lizzo told Glamor and added: & # 39; It's fine. I'm just myself. I'm just sexy. & # 39;

She then said how a double standard can exist with other women in the industry depending on their body type.

& # 39; If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn't call her brave, & # 39; said Lizzo. & # 39; I just think there is a double standard when it comes to women. & # 39;

With its launch in fame as a plus-size woman, this has put Lizzo on a pedestal for leading a body-positive movement among women.

Although the singer said she would like to promote that message, she also emphasized to people who find it rare that a plus-size woman has confidence in herself.

& # 39; I don't like it when people find it hard to see myself as beautiful, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I don't like it when people are shocked to do it. & # 39;

What Lizzo hopes from her emergence in the industry is that what people see as beautiful grows in diversity, and she thinks the internet will help further promote that message.

& # 39; Now we have internet. So if you want to see someone who is beautiful and looks like you, go on the internet and just type in something, & she said.

Should be the norm: & # 39; I don't like it when people find it hard to see myself as beautiful & # 39 ;, she said, calling the double standard for women in her industry

& # 39; Type blue hair. Type of thick thighs. Type back fat. You will notice that you are reflected. I did that to help find the beauty in myself. & # 39;

She believes it is time for the public to make room for a diverse group of people who promote new beauty standards than the old one.

& # 39; Let's just make room for these women, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Make room for me. Make room for this generation of artists who are truly fearless in self-love. They are here. They want to be free. & # 39;

After the show, she shared an emotional post on Instagram about what the moment meant to her surrounded by all types of women.

& # 39; Every woman on that stage had a story about why they shouldn't have been on that stage, or why they didn't believe they deserved to be on that stage, including myself. & # 39; Imposter syndrome & # 39; is a privilege for the most marginalized group in America, & she wrote.

& # 39; We have not only learned to believe that we did not belong in the spotlight, but when we finally reach a place where we are worthy of ourselves, the world is trying to knock us down.

& # 39; Not this time. The world smiled with us. The world sang us. The world saw our beauty last night. The world saw black women feel Good As Hell and encouraged us. & # 39;
