Michaels is disingenuous when she asks “why are we celebrating her body?” She knows we aren’t. Lizzo is loved because of the “spirited ownership” and “contented confidence” you point out — her ability to love and celebrate herself despite living in a misogynistic society bent on shutting down women. Lizzo’s self acceptance is far healthier than the self hate Michaels engenders and profits from. Lizzo is a great role model for stress reduction. Michaels is a pathogen.
