Lizzo refuses to be praised and criticized for her race and weight. According to the Daily Mail, the entertainer didn't hold back in an interview on David Letterman’s Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

The 32-year-old Detroit native kept it real about her role as an activist.

“I’m sick of being an activist just because I’m fat and Black,” she told the veteran talk show host. “I want to be an activist because I’m intelligent, because I care about issues, because my music is good, because I want to help the world.”
