Lizzo has spoken out against body shamers in a powerful new social media post. Hear Lizzo's important message in the video below:

The Grammy Award-winning musician shared a PSA on Instagram while enjoying a tropical getaway during a break from her Special World Tour.

Wearing a blue and brown coloured two-piece bathing suit, the 'About Damn Time' singer uploaded a lengthy Instagram video about the harsh and contradictory comments she gets about her body.

The video, which has attracted over a million views since it was uploaded on Friday (6 January), was paired with the caption: "If we had to pay money for every comment we post on social media maybe people would think before they type".

"The discourse around bodies is officially tired," the 34-year-old body image advocate declared at the start of the clip.

“I have seen comments go from ‘Oh my gosh, I liked you when you were thick, why’d you lose weight’ to ‘Oh my gosh, why did you get a BBL [Brazilian but lift]? I liked your body before’ to ‘oh my gosh you’re so big, you need to lose weight but for your health’ to ‘Oh my gosh you’re so little you need to get ass and titties or something’ to ‘oh my gosh why did she get all that work done? It’s too much work'," she continued.

The Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls host called out the 'delusion' in the comments she sees about her body: “Are we okay?! Do you see the delusion? Do we realise that artists are not here to fit into your beauty standards?"

She then posed and proudly showed off her body as she said: "Artists are here to make art and this body is art. And I’mma do what I want with this body.

“I wish that comments costed y’all money, so we could see how much time we are wasting on the wrong thing.”

This is something we all need to hear!

"The body is the most intimate and personal possession. Nobody needs an opinion on someone else's body," One fan responded.

Another Instagram user penned: "People who look in the mirror and hate what they see think that everyone else should too. Their lack of self-love is the most apparent when they’re commenting on someone else’s appearance."

In response to Lizzo's caption, another supporter shared: "I will carry this statement with me forever."

Unfortunately, Lizzo is no stranger to unwanted comments being made about her body, including from other celebrities.

In October, the 'Juice' hitmaker responded after Kanye West made disparaging comments about her appearance.

It came after comments made by Kanye in a conversation with Fox news host Tucker Carlson, in light of his White Lives Matter t-shirt shown during Paris Fashion Week.

“When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots … on Instagram, they attack her losing weight, because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy,” the controversial rapper said.

"It's actually clinically unhealthy, and for people to promote that, it's demonic."

Seemingly responding to Ye's comments - but not mentioning the rapper by name - Lizzo spoke out about people discussing her business at her Toronto concert.

“I feel like everybody in America got my motherf**king name in [their] motherf**king mouth for no motherf**king reason,” she told concertgoers.

"Can I stay here [in Canada]?" She added, joking: "Who can I marry for that dual citizenship?"
