The minute-long video is a compilation of clips of Lizzo engaging in various types of physical activity and posing in revealing outfits. She says in a voiceover:
“Hey. So I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years, and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type. I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f*cking business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job. So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonalds or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own f*cking self and worry about your own g*ddamn body, because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside. Health is also what happens on the inside, and a lot of y’all need to do a f*cking cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day.”
