Taking some much-needed self-care time with family doesn't mean Lizzo won't hop on Instagram to brighten our day with her positivity.
The singer posted a video on Instagram on Monday dancing alongside her mom, Shari Johnson-Jefferson, while enjoying what appears to be some good ol' mother and daughter bonding time.
The "Truth Hurts" singer donned a white towel wrapped around herself while her mom opted for a comfy white robe. The two both looked to be fresh-faced, chilling with no makeup on while grooving with coffee cups in their hands.
"Been in Detroit w family. This makes me smile. Hope u smiling too," the singer captioned the video.
According to People, the two were jamming to Trey Taylor and Armon Warren's cover of Mac Miller's "Knock Knock."
Just as she is on stage, Lizzo made sure her dance moves were in sync with her mom for the short video.
While she appeared to be enjoying some downtime, Lizzo has remained active on her Instagram, posting herself working out and maintaining her "bad b***h" award.
The 31-year-old has been vocal about her challenges with self-acceptance while promoting body image positivity.
In 2019, Lizzo challenged society's perception of plus-size women and the backhanded compliments she often receives for embracing her beauty.
"When people look at my body and be like, 'Oh my God, she's so brave,' it's like, 'No, I'm not,'" the singer told Glamour. "I'm just fine. I'm just me. I'm just sexy."
“If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn't call her brave. I just think there's a double standard when it comes to women.”
During her performances, the "Good As Hell" singer is known to sport a bodysuit along with her backup dancers who she recently applauded for being "trophies" during her NAACP Image Awards acceptance speech, as Blavity previously reported.
"I just wanna shout out all of the big Black girls that I bring on stage with me. I do that because I want them to know they are the trophies," she said.
Despite pushing a narrative focused on body positivity, the Detroit native said she has struggled with critics' insults.
“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,” she said.
At the beginning of the year, fitness guru Jillian Michaels thought it was her place to comment on the singer's health.
“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren't we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes,” Michaels said. “I’m just being honest. I love her music, my kid loves her music, but there’s never a moment when I’m like, ‘I’m so glad she’s overweight.’"
Nevertheless, Lizzo continues to give us her a*s to kiss while living her best damn life in the face of adversity.
In January, she gave us a bomb performance to "Watch Out For The Big Girls" during a show in Australia, proving that if there's ever a time to love yourself, it's now.
