Lizzo Hilariously Reveals Her Instagram DMs Are Full of 'F--- Boys'
The singer released her album Cuz I Love You in April
She’s got the juice!
Breakout singer Lizzo is hilariously opening up about the many people sliding into her DMs.
While out in New York City on Thursday, Lizzo, 31, said a lot of “f— boys” have been messaging her on Instagram ever since she dropped her album Cuz I Love You in April, according to TMZ.
The singer also revealed her dream collaboration — herself.
When asked by a reporter who she’d love to work with, the star said “Me!” She later said she is “going to get Adele on a feature.”
Since breaking into the music industry years ago, Lizzo has become known for inspiring others to be confident and comfortable in their own skin.
During a recent interview with Essence magazine, Lizzo explained she wants to normalize butt dimples.
“I’m doing this for myself,” Lizzo told the magazine. “I love creating shapes with my body, and I love normalizing the dimples in my butt or the lumps in my thighs or my back fat or my stretch marks.”
“I love normalizing my black-ass elbows,” she added. “I think it’s beautiful.”

The “Truth Hurts” crooner went on to explain that she chooses to love herself because she lives in a world that doesn’t always accept women who look like her.
“I made a decision to be myself because I knew I had no choice,” Lizzo explained to the magazine.
“I’m not ignorant to the fact that we had to have a demeanor of lowering ourselves culturally just to exist,” she added. “But I’m trying to shake up the narrative about how we’re supposed to act.”
However, Lizzo hasn’t always been so secure in herself.
The singer revealed she dealt with body-shaming — often unintentional, she said — from friends, family and the people she was dating.
One memory that sticks out for Lizzo happened when the singer was overwhelmed with everything in her life.
“I’ve ballooned in weight and all of that, up and down, and I remember when I was like, 20 or something, it was the hardest year of my life, it was awful, for a lot of reasons,” she said. “I didn’t have any money and I wasn’t eating, and I was also trying to be thin. I was working out a lot. And I remember I was with this guy, and we were laying down, and he was like, ‘I’m just so relaxed when I’m with you.’ And then he’s like, ‘So I showed your picture to my friends, and they said that your face is great, but your body needs work.’ I was like, ‘WHAT!’ Who says that to somebody? And I was the smallest I had ever been in my entire life.”

It took realizing that “no matter how small or big or how I look, no one’s ever going to be completely happy” with her appearance for Lizzo to learn to love herself.
“I’m not going to be able to please everyone with my outward appearance,” she said. “Someone’s always going to have a critique, someone’s always going to have some negativity to say about me. So all that matters is what I think of it. And I had to go so deep inside myself and look in the mirror. Looking in the mirror and accepting what’s in the mirror is very, very difficult. And right now, I love it every time I look in the mirror.”
