Lizzo is glad to take a break from her glam. The “Truth Hurts” singer, 31, opened up to People about how she’s reconnecting with herself and building up her self-esteem while social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think it’s cool that we get the opportunity to turn off,” Lizzo said. “My dream is to just take off my nails, not wear makeup and just grow my ‘fro out and walk around naked in my own garden.”
The Minnesota native continued, “What’s been really cool is seeing all of these people who are in glam every single day, not in glam every single day. I think that’s f—king sick!”
Indeed, the star has been sharing videos of herself makeup-free playing the flute in front of her crystals, leading meditation sessions on Instagram Live with SZA and encouraging her followers to practice self-love during these difficult times.
It’s also given Lizzo an opportunity to reflect on her own body image. “I think I’ve been in makeup every single day of my life for the last six months. We get addicted to seeing ourselves really dolled up,” she mused. “I had a few days off in Brazil back in February where I wasn’t in makeup and I remember being like, ‘Yo why am I so ugly to myself right now?’”
The singer continued, “It’s because I got addicted, used to seeing my face with contour. I never thought that would happen because I’m such an earthy bitch, I can go days without makeup!’”
