Lizzo Celebrates 6 Months Being Vegan: "Love Yourself at All Stages in Your Life"
Lizzo is celebrating six months of being vegan! While she's enjoying this lifestyle now, she wants to be clear that she was happy both before and after eating plant-based. Previously, Lizzo was vegetarian for seven years. But she said that, after a "whirlwind tour and year," at the beginning of quarantine, she went back to eating all animal products (as she shared in the beginning of this video of her making a "stale doughnut poundcake milkshake"). In the second half of the video, you can see Lizzo making a vegan protein shake, six months after adopting a vegan lifestyle.
Lizzo said, "Honestly, I am both of these women, and I cannot condemn one woman or the other. I'm happy both ways, and right now, this is what's bringing me joy." She shared that she was also happy and loving herself when she wasn't vegan (as you can see her dancing in her underwear in the kitchen with a serving spoon for her mic toward the end of the video). "I'm still that happy girl, loving myself, and loving my body," she said.
Lizzo ends with this powerful reminder to "love yourself at all stages in your life, because you are who you are." That's some solid advice!
