“If I have to start a f**king TV show to get enough attention to find these girls and get them ready to join me on stage, so be it,” she told Ramin Setoodeh. “It’s been a passion of mine for a long time: discovering and mentoring big girl dancers, especially black girls.” The cover story images prove that Lizzo isn’t just a star, she’s the one on a mission to remove all stereotypes from the equation. “For decades, we’ve been portrayed on TV and in movies as “lazy”, and huffing and huffing while the other thinner characters jog. Its good. It’s a stereotype,” she said. “I’m not new to stereotypes. But what I try to do is to dismantle all the stereotypes that I have the power to do. I destroy them by living and being amazing all the time.

We love Lizzo’s wit and her ability to take on Hollywood and remind them that there’s more than one body type in the world. This will only open more doors for more artists in the future – all thanks to Lizzo leading the way and breaking glass ceilings.
