American pop singer Lizzo won her first Emmy Award for Outstanding Competition Program for her Amazon Prime Video series "Watch Out for the Big Grrrls."

Lizzo broke down and cried during her acceptance speech. "When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media," she said.

"Someone fat like me. Black like me. Beautiful like me. If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I'd be 'you're gonna see that person, but, bitch, it's gonna have to be you!'"

Faison Love roasted Aries Spears in a discussion with The Art of Dialogue about the Lizzo controversy.

Spears triggered Lizzo's fans last month when he compared the Grammy Award-winning singer to "the sh-t emoji" and "a plate of mashed potatoes."

Love called Spears "untalented" and said he looks like a rabid raccoon.

"The comments in itself are stupid," Love said.

"I mean, Lizzo is a phenomenon and she's really talented, and he's not so talented. He's got one gear. He's a, 'Yo, son.' But if you know the story of Aries Spears; he's the guy we saw on a Def Jam as a kid. He was 13, 14 years old. They flew him out to Hollywood, thinking he was going to be the next Eddie Murphy and 'wamp, wamp.' He was so angry."

Love said he almost slapped the aspiring comedian when he bumped into him at the Comedy Store in Hollywood.

"I was going to slap the sh-t out of him one time. Like this dumb muthaf-cka. At the Comedy Store, so many muthaf-ckas was gonna whoop his ass because he was this cocky kid. He would get deals — him and Dave Chappelle would get all these deals — South of Sunset was one of the shows, and they would go nowhere like 'wamp, wamp.'"

Love continued flaming Spears.

"He was so cocky 'cause they had built his head up. He walked like Eddie Murphy. He had the little hat on, the Golden Child hat... So, that's his pinnacle. Here comes Lizzo, takes the world by storm. Bam! She plays the flute, which is amazing because the last person I know made the flute fly was Brick. A lot of people don't even know who Brick is..."

He added, "He don't know style. He don't know flyness. Lizzo's fly. He don't know... He's corny himself. You have to know his story. Cornball with a soapbox."

Spears didn't always resemble a sloth. The Chicago native was a comedian at age 14, performing stand-up comedy in various comedy clubs in New York City.

At 16, Spears landed a part in the movie Malcolm X. His first television appearance was on Russell Simmons's Def Comedy Jam, followed by It's Showtime at the Apollo (1987).

Lizzo is so oppressed. The Grammy-winning pop star, who won the "Music Video for Good" award at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, used her acceptance speech to rant about oppressive laws.

Lizzo asked her fans to go out and vote in the November midterm elections.

"I don't know what 'Music Video for Good' means, but I do know what your vote means, and that's a f-cking lot," she said, as the audience cheered.

"Your vote means everything to me, it means everything to making a change in this country. So remember when you're voting for your favorite artist, vote to change some of these laws that are oppressing us."

Last year, the morbidly obese pop singer, who has an estimated net worth of $12 million, bragged that her bank account was "so fat" and how she lathers herself in the "expensive oils and creams."

The "About Damn Time" singer, 34, also pointed out fat-shaming jokes on social media and informed the people who "got something to say about me in the press" that she's winning.

She explained that her fans have been wondering, "Why don't you clap back?"

"Because (expletive) I'm winning! This is winning!" she said.

Lizzo is engaged to Myke Wright after dating for three years.

Sources say the Grammy Award-winning singer is engaged to the standup comedian, but she's not ready to confirm it just yet.

According to MTO News, Myke popped the question and Lizzo said "Yes!"

The news comes after Lizzo admitted she's in a "non-traditional" relationship with Myke.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Lizzo said being in a monogamous relationship scares her. The bisexual singer prefers an open relationship.

"I think a traditional relationship [for 10 years] scares me, but love is forever. I can love somebody forever," she said.

Lizzo confirmed her relationship with Myke during an appearance on Andy Cohen's radio show "Radio Andy" on April 18.

Lizzo said she's not one to adhere strictly to rules.

"Monogamy, I think to me, is a little claustrophobic — I think because there's the rules," she said.

"I think a love relationship that's not monogamous has no rules. I think people who do poly and all that stuff — there's still rules. I don't want any rules."

But that doesn't mean I'm out here f–king and sucking and ducking," the singer explained. "It doesn't mean he is either. It just means that there are no expectations, and that way, the love gets to just be the main event."

Lizzo said Myke is a part of the "genuine" inner circle she runs in.

"Even the man I'm with, he knew me before all of this too. We were friends," she said. "It hit different when they knew you before 2019."

A month later, in November 2016, Lizzo and Myke Wright attended MTV's "Teen Wolf" and "Sweet/Vicious" Premiere Event in Los Angeles.

Myke is a comedian who has appeared in several films, including Doubting How to Be a Grown Up (2014), and Breaking (2013). He also appeared on Adam Devine's House Party and Laughs.

Lizzo fans are outraged over a simple case of mistaken identity.

The incident happened during a segment called "Will! Kathy! Know Them?" on an episode of "Watch What Happens Live."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathy Hilton mistakenly identified singer Lizzo (above right) as the character "Precious" portrayed by actress Gabourey Sidibe in the movie Precious.

Crystal Kung Minkoff, Hilton's co-star on RHOBH, tried to help her out by saying, "She is precious though, Lizzo is precious."

Hilton quickly agreed, saying, "That's what I call her! Her nickname's 'Precious' to me."

Host Andy Cohen hid his face with the question cards, and appeared horrified by Hilton's mistake. He quickly moved on to the next question.

Both Gabby (L) and Lizzo (R) are obese Black women, but the similarities end there.

Fans took to Twitter to blast Hilton for giving credence to the stereotype that all Black people look alike.

One Twitter user wrote: "There's nothing funny about Kathy Hilton calling Lizzo 'Precious.' Absolutely nothing."

Another user wrote: "Kathy Hilton damn well know Lizzo ain't Precious, a FICTIONAL character. That's mad disrespectful, racist, and fatphobic."

Lizzo announced she will donate $500,000 of her upcoming tour proceeds to Planned Parenthood after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Live Nation will match Lizzo's donation for a total of $1 million.

Lizzo, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, made the announcement on her Instagram Story and Twitter on Friday.

"I'm pledging $500k from my upcoming tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights. Live Nation agreed to match- to make it 1 MILLION dollars," the pop singer wrote.

"The most important thing is action & loud voices. @plannedparenthood @abortionfunds & organizations like them— will need funding to continue offering services to people who are most harmed by this ban.

'Black women & women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources— this is a great loss but not a new one."

Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization that earns millions of dollars operating abortion clinics in Black communities.

On Friday, the US Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, returning the decision to individual states 50 years after Roe v. Wade first became law.

Pro-lifers celebrated on the courthouse steps.

The Supreme Court's decision sparked outrage around the country. Many women feared pregnancy will cramp their lifestyle if they are unable to abort their unwanted babies.

Some Twitter users noted that overturning Roe v. Wade had one positive outcome: Democrats now refer to people who give birth as "women" again.

Lizzo is finally off the market. The "Good As Hell" singer says her boyfriend isn't at all intimidated by her fame.

"If you have the right person, no, not at all. [Fame] is not even a factor," she said during an interview on SiriusXM's Radio Andy.

Lizzo struggled to find love when she hit the big time after her single "Truth Hurts" was featured in the Netflix movie Someone Great.

The morbidly obese singer said fame "should be mutually supportive no matter what that person does."

Rumors swirled after she was spotted with a mystery man on Valentine’s Day at Craig's in West Hollywood. She was seen on an outing with the same guy in Beverly Hills in October 2021.

Lizzo revealed her man cheered her on as she hosted her new NBC comedy series. "It feels good [to have people rooting for me," she said.

The 33-year-old star hosted SNL and performed two new songs as well as appearing in sketches on Saturday.

She teased fans who claim she's dating boy band singers.

"They think I'm collecting members of One Direction like Infinity Stones," she joked about the speculation that she's "dating every little white boy in Hollywood."

The American Medical Association has decided you can no longer use common terms such as "morbid obesity" or adjectives like "vulnerable," "marginalized" or "high-risk."

The title of the AMA's new guidance is "Advancing Health Equity: A Guide to Language, Narrative and Concept." Download the PDF here.

The AMA has issued a long list of "dehumanizing language" that you should avoid and use "person-first" language instead.

Rather than describing people as Covid-19 "cases," you should use "persons with Covid-19."

Women like pop singer Lizzo are still considered obese but they are no longer "morbid."

Morbid obesity is an actual medical condition that means being more than 100 pounds over the ideal body weight. It also means a body mass index (BMI) over 35. MO negatively affects a woman's health.

However, the AMA says "morbid obesity" is offensive to women who are obese. The new terminology is "People with obesity."

"The Homeless" should be referred to as "People who are experiencing homelessness."

Lizzo tearfully told the well-heeled crowd that Missy inspired her to be the superstar she is today.

"I watched you my entire life and I saw a superstar in you, but I also saw myself and I'd never seen myself before," Lizzo told Missy. "You live so boldly and so beautifully and so unapologetically and so out loud. You have no idea what you have done for so many Black girls."

Holding back tears, Lizzo continued:

"We don't deserve you. We don't deserve Missy Elliott and still you continue to give to us. You've given and given and given with your heart, your genius ... I want to thank you so much for helping me and my career ... thank you for making my dreams come true, Missy. You have no idea what you mean to all of us. We love you, we celebrate you, god bless you."

Missy's close pal, Ciara, also held back tears as she shared her love and respect for Missy. Musicians Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monae and LL Cool J sent video tributes to Missy.

Lizzo was shocked by the backlash she might receive after she slid into a sparkly, see-through dress to attend Cardi B's 29th birthday party in L.A. last weekend.

The thin, gauzy fabric left nothing to the imagination. Lizzo tried to maintain her dignity by wearing a thong and pasties underneath the dress.

However, it wasn't enough.

Outraged parents lit up the comments on her social media pages, dragging the 33-year-old for her bold style and lack of humility.

The "Truth Hurts" singer was stunned by the fierce public backlash.

She addressed her critics in an Instagram Live video, explaining that she left the party early because she has social anxiety -- not because of the disapproving stares from partygoers.

"It's very funny to me that people are upset that I'm wearing a see-through outfit or that I'm twerking in a see-through outfit," she said on Thursday.

"[They're saying], 'This is disgusting... Don't you have bills to pay? Don't you got mouths to feed, including your own? Don't you have a life to live? Don't you want to fall in love and make friends?' Don't you got s—to do?

"Go read the news, b*tch, before I read you, ho*. The f—k! Why are you worried about me?

She concluded her dramatic statement by reminding her critics of a time not long ago when people minded their own business and wore whatever they wanted.

"Kiss my a**. Kiss my fat black a**, b*tch."

Lizzo joins Matthew McConaughey and other Hollywood stars who say cleanliness is an overrated experience.

The pop singer, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, claims she smells better by not using deodorant under her arms.

Lizzo says she agrees with the actor who stopped wearing deodorant and says he doesn't have an odor.

The morbidly obese 33-year-old pop star shared an old article about the actor's decision to stop wearing deodorant back in 2005.

"Ok... I'm w him on this one," she wrote on Instagram. "I stopped using deodorant and I smell BETTER."

"I remember that Matthew McConaughey said that he did not use deodorant and that he did not have an odor," Brown told the "Today" show.

"My first thought was, 'I'm going to get as close as I can to him to see if he's right.'

"He does not have an odor. He smells like granola and good living. That's all I can say. He has a sweet, sweet scent that is just him. It's not musty or crazy."

Lizzo was impressed by what she heard, and has decided to stop wearing deodorant as well.

The R&B/pop star fought back tears as she said:

"I just feel like I'm seeing negativity directed towards me in the most weirdest way. People saying s**t about me that just doesn't even make sense.

"I'm putting so much love and energy into the world, and sometimes I feel like the world don't love me back."

The 33-year-old songbird returned to the Internet on Tuesday, after Facebook took action against her tormenters.

She thanked supporters for their positive energy and said it was "important" for her to express her anxiety and depression that day.

"We really need to check ourselves and how we treat people," she said.

"I'm not crying for me. Yeah, I'm successful, I'm happy, I strive for joy every single day. I'm balanced, I'm blessed. But I just be feeling for the world. This sh-t ain't right. We shouldn't talk to people like that. We shouldn't normalize treating people this way."

Following her mental breakdown, social media bosses removed thousands of nasty comments on Lizzo's Facebook and Instagram pages.

According to TMZ, Facebook officials banned the accounts of trolls from both social media sites.

They will continue to monitor Lizzo's timelines and remove toxic comments, so the fragile singer doesn't end up in a mental hospital.
