Lizzo is back in twerking mode – and getting unfollowed for it, apparently. The “Truth Hurts” singer and rapper is now as much known for body-positivity lingerie displays as she is her powerhouse of a voice – nobody’s forgotten that Laker’s game thong twerk back in 2019.
Valentine’s Day may be over, but the sexy displays from Lizzo weren’t as she updated her social media on Saturday. The video may have clocked over 830,000 views in two hours, but it wasn’t to everyone’s taste.

Lizzo’s video showed her indoors and near a mirror. The Grammy winner started out facing the camera and flaunting her curves in a sexy, chocolate-brown lingerie set. The 31-year-old wore a semi-sheer bra and panties pairing with segmented and cut-out details, kicking off with her hands on her waist.
Some sassy hip tapping got things moving, with Lizzo then turning around and leaning against the wall to showcase the mother of all twerks. Her briefs were revealed to have a thong finish, with the twerking moves definitely showing fans that this bootylicious star has confidence.
“Gettin ready for side n*gga day ❤️ love u babe ?,” Lizzo captioned her video.
Replies came in fast for this video, and they were mixed. While many praised the “Juice” singer for embracing her body, others simply felt that it had gone too far.
“Someone come get Lizzo a model agency PLEASE” was one of the more positive comments, receiving over 440 likes.
“God damm your a queen I love you,” another said.
Others, meanwhile, begged the star to stop.
“Now it’s time for an intervention! Honey…..TOO MUCH,” a fan wrote.
“And this is when I unfollow her,” another said, with over 90 others agreeing.
“Ughh whyyyy ima have to unfollow,” a third stated.
Lizzo has no time for body-shaming. The star also has strong views on body stereotypes in Hollywood, something that she aired in an interview with Glamour.
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not,'” she told the magazine in 2019.
“I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy. If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women,” Lizzo added.
Body-positive as she may be, but Lizzo does not turn a blind eye to her size. In fact, she embraces it. Just recently, the singer updated her social media in a tiny bikini while posing on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach. “Roll model” was the caption.
More recently, Lizzo made headlines for a no-pants video showing her proudly slapping her thighs and dubbing them “thunda thighs.”
The singer also proved unfazed by the Jillian Michaels “body-shaming” storm earlier this year – “The Biggest Loser” had mentioned the health risks Lizzo faces as a result of obesity in a highly-publicized tweet.
“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? Because it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes?” she wrote.
