April 22, 2020 – Lizzo has always been a positive light in the music world since her rise to stardom, but her calming voice and encouraging words are more crucial than ever in the wake of the pandemic. While in quarantine, she has donated meals to healthcare workers fighting the virus, posted hilarious TikTok videos (and called the network out for taking down her swimsuit clips), and joined Lady Gaga’s One World: Together at Home special, performing a poignant rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come.”
To make an even wider impact, Lizzo has hosted guided meditations on Instagram to soothe our coronavirus anxiety, encouraging followers to not “let fear become the next pandemic” and emphasizing togetherness as a coping method. “Fear can spread so much hatred and negative energy,” she said. The singer-rapper-flautist opened up about her quarantine experience in an Instagram post on Tuesday, April 21, where she encouraged fans to love themselves by focusing on a body part that they’ve been insecure about. To prove her point, she shared a video of herself showing off her figure in lingerie. “It’s been a long ass day,” she wrote, complete with the peach emoji. “Focus on a body part [you] don’t like about yourself and show it some love today.” She then raised awareness about how the pandemic is causing some to suffer from mental health issues while inside, including herself.
