Lizzo Explains Detox Juice Cleanse After Backlash: 'Every Big Girl Should Do Whatever the F--- They Want'

Lizzo shared her juice detox journey on TikTok on Sunday (Dec. 13), which was met with criticism for promoting "diet culture."

The star followed up with another video explaining her reasoning for the heath decision, sharing that she'd usually feel "afraid and ashamed" to share her experience with the 10-day detox "because I feel like as a big girl, people expect if you are doing something for health, you’re doing it for a dramatic weight loss, and that is not the case."

"In reality, November stressed me the f--- out," she continued. "I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that f---ed my stomach up. I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was. I’m so proud of myself. I’m proud of my results. My sleep has improved, my hydration, my inner peace, my mental stability, my f---ing body, my f---ing skin, the whites of my eyes, I feel and look like a bad b--- — and that’s it."

"I’m a big girl who did a smoothie detox and I wanted to share it with you guys," she concluded, before adding, "And every big girl should do whatever the f--- they want with their bodies.”

Following Lizzo's post, a number of fans took to Twitter to support her, expressing frustration over the backlash the singer faces no matter what she decides to do.
