Michaels continued, saying, "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!' Why is it my job to care about her weight?"
As for what Lizzo, an eight-time Grammy nominee, might have to say about Michaels's remarks, we have an idea. Earlier this year, Lizzo faced hateful comments after wearing a thong-exposing outfit. But the Good As Hell performer didn't let it phase her.
"I don’t ever want to censor myself because I’m suddenly famous or because everyone’s looking at me now. I’m not going to quiet myself," she said. "I’m not going to shrink myself because somebody thinks that I’m not sexy to them. Bitch, you really think…" she trailed off, laughing.
"Hopefully by existing, there can just be more opportunities for people that look like me that are, you know, beyond what a trend is," Lizzo previously told CBS Sunday Morning. "And that they're there on the merit of their talent. They're there on the merit of their beauty. And they're there because they're good enough."
Refinery29 has reached out to Lizzo for comment.
