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?"

Steven Klein for British Vogue

Rihanna posed for a high-fashion photo shoot by well-known fashion photographer Steven Klein.

She revealed to British Vogue that she is aware of her emotional flaws that led her to have failed relationships with men and at least one woman.

She said that, despite her history of failed relationships, she still wants to raise "three or four children" alone if she has to.

"Would I do it on my own? Hell yeah!" she told the magazine. She said she wants to have children within the next 10 years.

Rihanna dismissed the advice of childcare experts who say children are more well-rounded and mentally healthy if they grow up in a stable 2-parent household with a mother and father.

"I feel like society makes me want to feel like 'Oh you got it wrong...' They diminish you as a mother, [if] there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she said.

Rihanna suggested she wants to have children to give her the happiness she feels she can't get from men.

"The only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

The pop singer split from Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel in January after dating long distance for three years.

Her exes include troubled singer Chris Brown and bisexual rappers Drake and A$AP Rocky.

Cardi B and Offset turned to the church to help save their failing marriage after she caught him cheating on her.

The hip-hop power couple tied the knot in September, 2017. They welcomed their first child, daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus in July, 2018. But by December 2018, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper announced she and Offset had parted ways.

Cardi B and Offset, both 27, reconciled months later, thanks to priests who made house calls.

In a cover story interview for the January 2020 issue of U.S. Vogue magazine, Cardi confessed she tuned to priests to help restore her faith in men.

"Everybody on social media acts like relationships is perfect," she said in her familiar broken English. "Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it's really us against the world," she said.

On the cover, Cardi cradles her 16-month-old daughter in her lap. She wears a red polka dot dress. Her legs spread open seductively. She wears her black, straight hair slicked back. Her and Kulture's baby hairs are laid to perfection.

Defending her decision to stand by her husband, Cardi added, "people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me."

She addressed her female fans who may find themselves in a similar situation.

"If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you're depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you're not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation."

Despite new rumors that Offset cheated on her again, she added: "He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything."

@Klossfilms for British Vogue

American singer Lizzo graces the December 2019 cover of British Vogue magazine. But not all of her fans are excited for her first ever Vogue cover.

Lizzo was styled in a black Versace frock with a feather boa in B&W photographs shot by @Klossfilms. A cheap photo filter effect makes Lizzo appear 3 sizes smaller - which doesn't suit her fans who complained about the unnecessary filter effect.

One fan tweeted: "I love Lizzo so much and am so happy she's on the Vogue UK cover BUT why did they put that ugly filter on her portrait ???"

Another user tweeted: "This cheap glitch / acid blur effect is homophobic".

Lizzo told British Vogue that she felt worthless growing up because thick women like her weren't represented in fashion magazines.

"When you don't see yourself, you start to think something's wrong with you. Then you want to look like those things and when you realize it's a physical impossibility, you start to think, 'What the fuck is wrong with me?' I think that took a greater toll on me, psychologically, growing up than what anyone could have said to me."

Rihanna isn't fazed by people speculating if she's pregnant because she "dreams" of becoming a mom one day. At 31, the Barbadian pop star still has time to become a mom in the foreseeable future.

The "Work" singer has been at the center of pregnancy rumors over the past couple of months. The rumors intensified when she was spotted with what appeared to be a baby bump that turned out to be a FUPA (fat in upper pubic area).

The U.S. Vogue cover girl addressed the speculation with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Winter in the November 2019 issue of the magazine.

While Rihanna acknowledged that "a lot of woman get very defensive" about pregnancy talk, she insisted she's fine with it - because she secretly wishes the rumors were true.

"It's personal, it's our bodies, and of course it's our time," she told TV show Extra. "It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom... but it's mine, so I'm fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know," she said.

The Vogue cover - Rihanna's sixth for the fashion publication - is also her favorite cover of them all, because she's showcasing her own Fenty fashion line.

"To see her (Anna) be so supportive — it's great to see us supporting each other, and it's always an honor," the star continued. "This is unlike any cover I have done with Vogue (because) I am wearing my own stuff."
