Lizzo has set her sights on making a move into the fashion business.
During a recent Q&A at the 92nd Street Y in New York, the Juice hitmaker shared that she has been enjoying experimenting with different looks since finding success and wants a fashion line to channel that energy.
“That’s my thing I feel like a f**king princess lately. Now, I love to play with shapes… I love it, I need a clothing line,” she shared, adding that the public are still hung up about her figure. “Don’t ask me what size I am… it is my size.”
The singer/rapper has seen a shift in the way the fashion industry accepts women with fuller figures in recent years, a far cry from the days she would borrow men’s clothes because she didn’t feel comfortable with the selection of outfits available.
“I would borrow guys’ clothes and wear flannel,” she commented. “I’ve learned a lot from my team. Like, look at Diana Ross … look at Cher, and I now say, ‘Yeah, let’s do that s**t!'”
Lizzo now takes more pride in her outfit choices, quipping: “I want Kate Moss to look at me and say, ‘Damn, where you got that dress?'”
Previously, the 31-year-old opened up about her work in promoting body positivity and noted that she finds it odd when people label her as “brave” for loving and embracing her figure.
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No I’m not.’ I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy,” she shared in a chat with U.S. Glamour magazine. “I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it.”
