Lizzo has been trying to normalise different body types ever since she ascended to pop stardom.

She has previously criticised people who call her unhealthy and has been trying to change the way we talk about health in general.

To help her campaign, the 'Cuz I Love You' singer has now shared an unedited naked selfie on Instagram.

Captioning the raw post, Lizzo wrote: "WELCOME TO TAURUS SEASON. To celebrate 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."

She explained how she is partnering with Dove's self esteem project that 'is helping to reverse the negative effects of social media and changing the conversation about beauty standards'.

Lizzo urged her followers to 'get real y'all' and encouraged people to examine the way the talk about body types in relation to health.

She was praised by fans and other celebrities for putting it all out there on social media to spark a new movement.

One person replied: "Now every time I see my tummy stretch marks I'm going to smile and think, I'm matching with Lizzo."


Last year, the singer shared a message about her body image and the criticism she constantly faces.

Lizzo told Glamour there was a 'double standard' when it comes to the way women's bodies are discussed.

She said: "When people look at my body and be like, 'Oh my God, she's so brave,' it's like, 'No, I'm not.'

"I'm just fine. I'm just me. I'm just sexy.

"If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn't call her brave. I just think there's a double standard when it comes to women.

"I don't like it when people think it's hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don't like it when people are shocked that I'm doing it."

She's also criticised the body positivity movement for becoming commercialised and is trying to refine what that movement is. She told Vogue last year that the world needs to rethink their words when discussing body types.

"I think it's lazy for me to just say I'm body positive at this point," she said. "It's easy. I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalise my body."
