Lizzo recently celebrated six-months as a vegan and said the lifestyle ‘brings [her] joy’.

The musician – whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson – made the comments in a recent TikTok video.

Lizzo revealed in the video that at the start of quarantine she was ‘eating all animal products’, before going vegan.

‘Love yourself’

While she was open in praising her vegan lifestyle, body-positive Lizzo told her fans to ‘love [themselves] at all stages in [their] life’.

The star showed footage from the beginning of quarantine, in which she made a ‘stale donut poundcake milkshake type concoction.’

She compared it to recent footage of herself making a vegan protein shake.

‘Not ashamed’

Lizzo pointed out that she is ‘not ashamed’ of her former diet. She said she made the former shake ‘after having endured a whirlwind tour and year. And after being seven years vegetarian, going back to eating all animal products’.

She added: “Honestly, I am both of these women, and I cannot condemn one woman or the other. I’m happy both ways, and right now, this is what’s bringing me joy.”

Lizzo and veganism

The singer often shows off her culinary creations, after revealing earlier this year that she finds veganism ‘pretty easy’, in a TikTok video.

“So being plant-based and vegan has been pretty easy, except for when I am hungover. I used to crave cheesy eggs,” Lizzo told her 8.7 million TikTok followers.

The star has since shared a number of recipes and tips with her followers, for instance jackfruit, saying: “I feel like us fat queens need to represent.”
