Lizzo denied posting "thirst traps" on Instagram for 'likes' and follows. "They're not thirst traps," she said when BACKGRID caught up with her.
The "Good As Hell" singer was insulted when the photog asked if anyone was sliding into her DMs (direct messages) on Instagram.
"My DMs are full," she insisted. "They're very occupied. But they're not thirst traps. I just look good!"
"If you see me in these streets... I'm just trying to stunt on these ho*s," she laughed.
Lizzo was spotted after dining at Crossroads Kitchen restaurant in Los Angeles, on Monday night.
She wore an oversized pink and white striped dress that accentuated her curves. And, yes, she looked good! She's definitely losing weight.
Keep doing what you're doing, Lizzo!

Sorry fellas. After a long dry spell, rapper Lizzo has finally found someone to quench her thirst.
According to the gossip blogs, Lizzo is dating Flint, Michigan rapper BFB Da Packman. He reportedly chased her for months until she finally gave in and agreed to a date.
Packman is best known for his independent singles "Free Joe Exotic", "Honey Pack" and "Honey Pack Remix."
He also gained internet fame for posting photos of himself working at his day job, wearing his U.S. postal worker uniform.
While Packman does have a day job, his money is far from short. He reportedly owns his own private jet and a fleet of luxury cars.
Women everywhere admire the fact that 26-year-old Packman is a hard working brotha who also raps on the side.
Over the weekend, Lizzo shared a video of herself chatting with Packman via Skype. She seemed interested enough to agree to go out on a date with him.
Lizzo and Packman have one thing in common -- their love for food.

Lizzo responded to the public backlash after she shared her juice detox cleansing "diet" with her social media followers.
The 32-year-old pop star, who was slammed by fat feminists as "fatphobic", insists her detox cleansing diet isn't "for a dramatic weight loss".
Addressing her fans, Lizzo said:
"Your body is perfectly yours, even if it ain't perfect to anybody else. If you only knew the complexities your body possesses you would be so proud of it.
"I'm so proud of you. For making it this far in a society that gives us a head start into self-loathing, that hands us a dysmorphic mirror and leaves us desperate to catch up with who we think we should be."
In one Instagram post, she shared a photo of herself, nearly naked, standing on a balcony.
Lizzo, who was previously happy with her morbid obesity, said:
"I've spent so much time in this body and I am no different than you — still struggling to find balance, still trying to mend my relationship with food, my anxiety, my back fat. It gets easier. I've spent my hardest days trying to love me."
In another post, the "Truth Hurts" hitmaker wrote: "I detoxed my body and I'm still fat. I love my body and I'm still fat. I'm beautiful and I'm still fat. These things are not mutually exclusive."
Lizzo addressed the criticism over her detox diet:
"To the people who look to me, please do not starve yourselves. I did not starve myself. I fed myself greens and water and fruit and protein and sunlight. You don't have to do that to be beautiful or healthy. That was my way. You can do life your way. Remember, despite anything anyone says or does DO WHAT YOU WANT WITH YOUR BODY."

You can't please everyone. So-called "fat feminists" are furious with singer Lizzo after she embarked on her weight loss journey without seeking their permission.
Full-figured women who are happy in their bodies took to social media to rebuke the 32-year-old pop star after she confessed to hating her body and despising how she looked in a mirror.
In a TikTok video Lizzo said, "I came home, and I took my clothes off to take a shower, and I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself. Like, you know, 'What's wrong with me?'... 'Why am I so disgusting?' and hating my body."
Fat feminists on Twitter called Lizzo out and accused her of being "fatphobic."
One Twitter user wrote:
"The problem here now, is that fatphobics and horrible people will now use Lizzo's weight loss as a tool to further shame and abuse fat women who are happy in their bodies."
In a now-deleted tweet, user Leah wrote:
"my heart hurts with all my fat peers today. even though she won't say it and will probably try to excuse it, I'm sorry that @lizzo did that to us. we are worthy and what she posted was so f***ed. if you are triggered and upset by it I and right there with you."
Leah, who is Caucasian, apologized after Black Twitter descended on her timeline and attacked her -- as if morbid obesity is a Black thing.
One Black Twitter user wrote: "stay out of black folks business."
Another user wrote: "girl remove that blm photo from ur header and while ur at it stay [out] of blk folk business. foreva!!"
A third user tweeted:
"STAY OUT OF BLACK FOLKS BUSINESS IN GENERAL. Youre not an ally, youre a undercover enemy. Selfish, controlling, only care about BW when they're fat or fir your agenda I guess. Youre just like these Republican WM and its people just like you that gives libs a bad rep."
Leah responded to the criticism:
"The biggest thing is that I am genuinely sorry, and I had no idea just how much I was feeding into the racism of Black women being so highly scrutinized and held to such high standards. I should’ve, I can, and I will do better."

Lizzo is just like you. The "Juice" singer admits she is still struggling with body image issues and negative thoughts. She's in a depressing head space so close to Christmas.
Speaking in a video to fans on TikTok, she said:
"I came home, and I took my clothes off to take a shower, and I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself. Like, you know, 'What's wrong with me?' 'Maybe everything, all the mean things people say about me are true.' And, you know, 'Why am I so disgusting?' and hating my body. I'd normally have some positive thing to say to get out of this (but I didn't this time). And that's OK, too. I think these are normal. They happen to everybody. They happen to the best of us. We are the best of us. I can only hope that it changes for the better. But I know I'm beautiful. I just don't feel it. But I know I'm going to get through it."

Meanwhile, Lizzo previously admitted fame "puts a magnifying glass" on her negative thoughts.
"You can be the coolest, most richest person ever and it doesn't buy you f**king happiness. Money doesn't buy you happiness. Fame only puts a magnifying glass on the s**t that you already have. And if that s**t is f**ked up, you're just going to have even more magnified f**ked up s**t in situations where it doesn’t even seem valid or like you're even like supposed to feel that way and so it f**ks you up even more because you feel super f**king ungrateful."
Fans pleaded with Lizzo to seek help. The holidays can be the most depressing time of the year for many Americans.

Lizzo and other liberal stars turned the 2020 Billboard Music Awards into a political event Wednesday night.
Lizzo won the award for Top Song Sales at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The 32-year-old Taurus wore a one-sleeve, off the shoulder black frock with the words "VOTE" printed on it.
"I've been thinking a lot about suppression and the voices that refuse to be suppressed," said the "Truth Hurts" singer. "And I wonder, would I be standing here right now if it weren't for the big black women who refused to have their voices be suppressed?"

Lizzo urged Billboard's viewers to get out and vote: "When people try to suppress something, it's normally because that thing holds power. They're afraid of your power ... So whether it's through music, protest or your right to vote, use your power, use your voice and refuse to be suppressed."

Rapper activist Killer Mike, appearing via CCTV from Atlanta, was honored with the first ever Billboard Change Maker Award. After being presented the award by Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Killer Mike spoke directly to the young people pounding the pavement to seek justice for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
"You matter more than you know," he said in a reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. "You are needed more than ever."
Killer Mike turned to his wife, Shana Render, standing beside him, and said, "This is our award."
"I am first and foremost your husband and I would not be here receiving this if not for your encouragement... I'd probably just be smoking weed, hanging out... by myself. I love you very much and I appreciate you."
Lizzo pleaded with fans to give her tips on removing a stubborn nipple pastie after struggling to get one off her breast for two days!
The "Truth Hurts" singer took to Instagram on Thursday to share her battle with the fashion accessory. Lizzo admitted she had run out of ideas to get the thing off her nipple.
"Help. My nipple pastie won't come off," Lizzo said in a video, as she yelped in pain while struggling to remove the pastie.
"I'm scared. It's been on for two days," she said. "I don't know what to do. It hurts so bad. I've put oil on it. Oh my god. It hurts so bad, you guys. What do I do? I think I'm taking off the skin."
Eventually, Lizzo told fans in a later video update on her Instagram Stories that she succeeded in removing the glued on accessory.
Here are some examples of medical grade products we nurses use to easily remove stubborn adhesive tape from a patient's skin within seconds. You can purchase these products on Amazon.com.
Lizzo has come out against commercializing the body positive movement, which seeks to decrease the stigma surrounding obesity.
The "Juice" singer, who is morbidly obese, is a huge advocate for self-love and body positivity. But in a recent chat with Vogue magazine she admitted she believes the movement calling for the acceptance of all bodies has been partially misappropriated.
"It's commercialized," she said. "Now, you look at the hashtag 'body positive,' and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about.
She continued: "I'm glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative. What I don't like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it."
The "Good As Hell" rapper said the body positive movement excludes morbidly obese women like herself who don't fit the mainstream standard. Lizzo says obesity is beautiful and she is proof of that.
"Girls with back fat, girls with bellies that hang, girls with thighs that aren't separated, that overlap. Girls with stretch marks. You know, girls who are in the 18-plus club..."
Lizzo went on to state she wants to "normalize" her morbid obesity "and not just be like, 'Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.' No, being fat is normal.
"I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here. We have to make people uncomfortable again, so that we can continue to change. Change is always uncomfortable, right?"
