Social media campaigns and awareness has brought forth some vital issues that surround the fashion industry, namely body image issues. Various brands like Dove have, over the years, launched various campaigns to bring awareness and sensitivity towards these topics. Celebrities such as Jameela Jamil have constantly thrown more and more light on such issues. One of the most outspoken celebrities of them all is singer Lizzo.
In a recent post on her social media, the singer announced her partnership with the #DoveSelfEsteemProject by posting a strategically covered, unaltered nude photo of herself. With no touch-ups or filters in the picture whatsoever, the singer candidly wrote in her caption, “…I wanna give y’all this unedited selfie. Now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted show u how I do it au natural…”
The Boys singer has previously shut down paparazzi, tabloid, and social media comments and questions about her shape, weight, and size by keeping it open and frank with the world. She has proudly spoken about her body, the struggle with self-love, and the negative effects of social media on body images.
With more awareness being created about body image issues and the shape crisis, kudos to Lizzo for staying true to herself and doing her best to promote body positivity.
