Lizzo covers the September 2022 issue of British ELLE magazine photographed by AB+DM and styled by Georgia Medley and Jason Rembert.
On deciding to start with shapewear: “More than any piece of clothing, shapewear can make people feel ways about their bodies and, most of the time, it’s bad. I want to revolutionize shapewear. I want to change how people think when they hear the word ‘snatched.’ I don’t want people to ever have to deal with a girdle again in their lives.”
On social media: “I don’t need social media; social media needs me. Social media literally needs people to function. I don’t need to go on the internet and feel better about stuff anymore. I have a therapist. I have best friends. I have an amazing team around me who I can talk to. I got love.”
On feeling conflicted during the pandemic: “It was hard for me to find meaning, being an entertainer, while people were dying at a high rate,” she says. “I had to remember, when we come out of lockdown, people are going to be coming out of a depression. And the end of lockdown does not signify the end of their mental-health struggles. So I wanted to make music that people can use as a soundtrack to survive. That was the driver for this album.”
