Lizzo is an icon, no question. Even before she appeared as the best guest of Season 10 of Drag Race, Lizzo has been one to watch out for. Her songs about losingand are classics.
More than just an icon, Lizzo, inwith Teen Vogue, talked about fighting for marginalized people.
“I can’t wake up one day and not be black. I can’t wake up one day and not be a woman. I can’t wake up one day and not be fat,” Lizzo said. “I always had those three things against me in this world, and because I fight for myself, I have to fight for everyone else.”
In addition, Lizzo talked about her own personal identity and her relationship with the LGBTQ community. “When it comes to sexuality or gender, I personally don’t ascribe to just one thing. I cannot sit here right now and tell you I’m just one thing,” Lizzo explained. “That’s why the colors for LGBTQ+ are a rainbow! Because there’s a spectrum and right now we try to keep it black and white. That’s just not working for me.”
