Ariana Grande has been receiving criticism for her thin frame over the last few weeks, but the pop star was quick to defend herself and encouraged fans to stop commenting on others’ bodies. In a recent TikTok video, Grande explained how her past struggles with mental health and medication affected her weight and reminded fans that you never know what someone else is going through.
In a show of solidarity, Grande shared a powerful video from Lizzo, a fellow Grammy winner, who has been advocating for an end to the constant scrutiny and criticism over musician’s bodies. The clip features a bikini-clad Lizzo calling for an end to the “tired” discourse and reminding her followers that artists are here to make art, not to conform to society’s beauty standards.
The message is clear: it’s time to stop body shaming and start celebrating all bodies. It’s important to remember that everyone is dealing with their own struggles and goes through ups and downs with their body image. Instead of focusing on appearance, let’s focus on kindness and uplifting one another.
It’s great to see influential figures like Grande and Lizzo using their platform to spread a positive message and encourage body positivity. Let’s continue to support and celebrate all bodies, regardless of shape or size.
