"I’m so much more than that," Lizzo said of her body. "Because I actually present that [and] I have a whole career; it’s not a trend.

"I’ve come to terms with body dysmorphia and evolved," she continued. "The body-positive movement is doing the same thing. We’re growing together, and it’s growing pains, but I’m just glad that I’m attached to something so organic and alive."

"As a black woman, I make music for people, from an experience that is from a black woman... I’m making music that hopefully makes other people feel good and helps me discover self-love," she added. "That message I want to go directly to black women, big black women, black trans women. Period."

When asked specially about people making negative comments about her body, as Michaels did, Lizzo said, "We eventually get used to everything... So people just gon’ have to get used to my ass."

Earlier this month, Michaels was a guest on a Buzzfeed show and said, "Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren't we celebrating her music? 'Cause it isn't gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.

"I love her music. My kid loves her music. But there's never a moment where I'm like, 'And I'm so glad that she's overweight.'"

Following tons of social media backlash, Michaels later tried to explain her comments.

"As I've stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy, and equally deserving," she wrote in a statement she shared on Instagram. "I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity — heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few.

"I would never wish these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies," she concluded.

Lizzo posted her "Rolling Stone" cover photo on Instagram, and fans absolutely loved it.

"I'm no black at all... Mexican mix here, but YOU EMPOWER the hell out me!!! Even in my lowest lows. GO GIRL we freaking LOOOVEEE YOUU," one said.

"Thank you for being the icon our children should look up to!" another wrote.
