Lizzo caused quit a stir this week when she showed up at a Lakers game in a t-shirt dress that had the backside cut out of it exposed the musician's entire butt. Social media has been on fire about the incident ever since, and on Thursday, Lizzo appeared on "CBS This Morning" to address her outfit.

"It's their opinion, so it's not for me to really ingest, so I got up and did what I always do. Anyone who knows me knows that this is how I've always been. This is how I've always liked to dress," she said.

“I had all the layers down there. So it wasn't just flesh to seat, contrary to popular belief. ... but um, yeah, [my butt] was out.”

She then opened up about her struggles with body image issues.

“You know how long it took me to fall in love with this body? My butt was my least favorite thing about myself and I learned to love it. And now it's the thing everybody can't stop talking about,” she said. “Be you. Do you. Don't ever let anybody steal your joy, especially not the internet.”

Lizzo previously addressed the blowback from the outfit on her Instagram Story.

“Who I am, and the essence of me and the things I choose to do as a grown ass woman, can inspire you to do the same,” she said. “You don’t have to be like me. You need to be like you. And never ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself. This is who I’ve always been. Now everyone’s lookin’ at it, and your criticism can just remain your criticism. Your criticism has no effect on me. Negative criticism has no stake in my life.”

“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been … I’m surrounded by love, and I just wanna spread that love — and also spread these cheeks. And if you really, really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it,” she added.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Lizzo is Time Magazine's Entertainer of the Year, so it's been a very eventful week for the "Truth Hurts" singer.
