Lizzo is not apologizing for anything.
The singer sparked a major firestorm over the weekend after she showed up to the Lakers-Timberwolves game wearing a “thong dress” where her black t-shirt had been cut out at the back and exposed her butt for the audience to see. At one point, the moment was captured on the Jumbotron as she turned around and started twerking.
The dress sparked debate online over whether or not it was appropriate to wear to a basketball game, but she is not apologizing for being who she is.
“Who I am and the essence of me and the things that I choose to do as a grown ass woman can inspire you to do the same,” she said. “You don’t have to be like me. You need to be like you. Never, ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself. This is who I’ve always been. Now everyone’s looking at it and your criticism can just remain your criticism. Your criticism has no effect on me. Negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and surrounded by so much love. I just wanna spread that love and also spread these cheeks. And if you really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it.”
