    Lizzo posts naked photos of herself on Instagram because she loves "normalising the dimples in my butt or the lumps in my thighs"

    The 'Juice' hitmaker has no problem sharing her body with the world and wants everyone to know that they are "beautiful" no matter what their shape, size or ethnicity


    However, she also admitted that she posts the au naturel images for own pleasure because she loves "creating shapes" with her body.

    In an interview with Essence magazine, she said: "I'm doing this for myself.

    "I love creating shapes with my body, and I love normalising the dimples in my butt or the lumps in my thighs or my back fat or my stretch marks.

    "I love normalising my black-ass elbows. I think it's beautiful."

    The 30-year-old singer - whose real name is Melissa Jefferson - admitted she had "no choice" but to be "herself" because she is aware that the way she looks isn't always accepted by society.

    She explained to the publication: "I made a decision to be myself because I knew I had no choice.

    "I'm not ignorant to the fact that we had to have a demeanour of lowering ourselves culturally just to exist.

    "But I'm trying to shake up the narrative about how we're supposed to act."

    The 'Blame It On Your Love' rapper recently admitted it took her some time to feel so confident.

    She said: "I felt this with how I was being perceived for much of my life.

    "Until I was like, f**k it. I just need to be undeniable. It's not about me being big. It's about me being me. Y'all are going to get this bad bitch. You are going to get these bops and get this show. And you are going to get your life by receiving it."

    The 'Good as Hell' singer believes part of the problem is the lack of visibility for marginalised people.

    She said: "I have felt excluded my entire life. From blackness because I wasn't well-read on certain things."

    And Lizzo wants anyone who has ever felt "marginalised" to feel welcome in her "movement".

    She said: "It's about inclusion. And if I am going to fight what I have been marginalised for, I am going to fight for all marginalised people. Also, I honestly feel like there is no such thing as straight . Because f***ing boxes; I am too big to be put in one anyway. I am a fat bitch."
