Sassy star Lizzo graced the cover of V Magazine and shared inspirational and powerful messages in the interview.
“Dancing with a Stranger” hitmaker Sam Smith interviewed Lizzo for the issue, which will hit newsstands on May 2, according to their official website.
On the cover, the “Boys” songstress looks absolutely fierce in red sunglasses. She is joined by model Alton Mason, who is posing intimately close with the star. The magazine’s photoshoot shows Lizzo in a range of looks. In one, she is wearing a black lingerie leotard style garment, and in another, she is wearing a poofy dress. The photos she posted on her social media all seem to be in black and white, minus the cover.
On Twitter, Lizzo expressed to her followers that big girls can be high fashion and still beautiful.
“Dear big girls, your body is high fashion. You are beautiful. You are worthy. And I am on the COVER OF @VMAGAZINE????” she shared.
In the interview, she shared some important messages that will resonate with many readers.
“First off, I love my body. No matter what angle you shoot it at, no matter the lighting, my body is just so f****** beautiful all the time. I may talk s*** about it sometimes, but f***. She’s still a bad b****,” the “Good As Hell” said.
“So my movement is for everyone. It’s about inclusion. And if I am going to fight what I have been marginalized for, I am going to fight for all marginalized people… Because of f*** boxes; I’m too big to be put in one anyway. I’m a fat b****.”

“My favorite thing about myself is my blackness. I am really just so honored to be graced with this identity. No shade to any other shade on the planet—I just can’t relate. I just love being a black woman, even in a world where we are statistically the least desirable. I am still here, and I still rise.” – @vmagazine interview by @samsmith (link in bio)
