Lizzo was born Melissa Viviane Jefferson on April 27, 1988. Some parts of her early work were spent in Minneapolis in the early part of the 2010s. During this period, she co-founded the all-female group called the Chalice.
The trio released a studio album and garnered local success. This encouraged her to persevere to making it big. In 2013, she showcased her knack for hip-hop in her debut album titled Lizzobangers.
Early Career and All the Way to the Grammy Stage
Although Lizzobangers was produced by an independent record label, it caught the attention of listeners and critics alike. With her work gaining more recognition, Time magazine named her one of the music artists showing great promise.
Following this, her debut album extended its reach after being re-released by Virgin Records. Wanting to produce her own music, she formed her own record label BGSW, which then released her second album Big Grrrl Small World.
Getting more admired for her talent, Nice Life and Atlantic Records signed her up, which resulted in the release of her first major-label EP, Coconut Oil. It was, however, the 2019 album Cuz I Love You that cemented her fame as a recording artist. It was one of the Top 5 in the US Billboard 200.
With her newfound success, even some of her songs released years ago like “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” found greater popularity in the recent years. Lizzo then received eight Grammy nominations last year, winning three, which only proved the impact of her musical work.
Lizzo Bra Size and Body Measurements
Lizzo is considered tall standing at 5’9 or 176 centimeters and weighs 309 pounds or 140 kilograms. Her body measurements are 45-36-47 and wears a bra size of 44C. Throughout her career, Lizzo has been made fun of because of her weight.
That’s why she has since been considered an inspiration who promotes self-confidence and body positivity. She also frequently reminds her fans of the importance of self-love. But not everyone is willing to put a positive spin on the singer’s body, of course.
One is personal trainer and TV personality Jillian Michaels, who sort of said that Lizzo should be celebrated for her music and not for her body because “it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes”.
Fans defended Lizzo, pointing to the fact that the singer performs intense fitness regimen, which enables her to execute her equally intense shows. It’s also known that the Grammy-winning artist makes conscious efforts to improve her health.
On Tiktok, she told her fans that she currently follows a vegan diet. In addition to practicing a healthy diet plan, Lizzo works out on a regular basis too, not only to lose weight but to also keep her body strong while touring.
In a TikTok video she posted months ago, she told her fans that she has actually been working out on a regular basis for five years. This only shows that she’s willing to do the work in order to get results. Instead of relying on instant remedies like diet pills or plastic surgery, she wants to embark on a fitness journey the right and healthy way.
What is Lizzo’s Net Worth?
Lizzo has so far accumulated wealth of $10 million from her album sales, tours, guest appearances, and other entertainment-related commitments. She has definitely come a long way from the time when she lived out of her car for a year while trying to pursue a career in music.
While Lizzo receives respect and admiration from her fans, she has also been the target of body shaming ever since she broke into the mainstream music industry. However, all the hate she receives won’t diminish the fact that she’s talented and confident. Time magazine even named her “Entertainer of the Year” for her spectacular success in music.
