Lizzo sat down for a recent interview where she talked about self-image, and told the outlet, "I am fat, I am beautiful."

"Somebody's like, 'Well, you know, you're a big girl so you can never have short hair, you always have to have big hair because you're a big girl,'" she said on the Sunday morning show. 

"And they say that lovingly, but I'm like, that's a little mosquito bite. You don't even know it's there, but soon you look up, and you're covered in mosquito bites, and you're like, 'Oh my God, I have all of these things [scratching arms], but they were so normalized to me because they were so innocent."

Lizzo says that she has worked on eliminating her insecurities and loves what she sees when she looks in the mirror:

"It's not something you really change," she continued. "It's something that you address and work on. I had to address every layer of insecurity. Because I can't just be like, 'Alright, my arm's not jiggly and lumpy anymore' — that's delusional. You have to be like, 'That's not ugly to me anymore, and it's not wrong to me, it's beautiful to me.'

"And I think that is why I'm able to call myself fat, and people are like, 'No!' Even my friends. And I'm like, 'B*tch, you know I'm fat.' I'm like, 'Don't say no. I am fat, I am beautiful.' I think it's because I learned to actually look all my insecurities in the face, call them by their name, and fall in love with them."
