Lizzo began to suffer from low confidence after becoming addicted to wearing make-up every day.
In an interview for the People magazine’s 2020 The Beautiful Issue, the Truth Hurts hitmaker candidly revealed her perception of her natural appearance had become warped following almost six months of being in heavy make-up on a daily basis.
“I think I’ve been in make-up every single day of my life for the last six months. We get addicted to seeing ourselves really dolled up. I had a few days off in Brazil back in February where I wasn’t in make-up and I remember being like, ‘Yo why am I so ugly to myself right now?’” she told the publication. “It’s because I got addicted, used to seeing my face with contour. I never thought that would happen because I’m such an earthy b***h, I can go days without make-up!”
The Grammy winner also opened up about life in self-isolation amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and said that she’s grateful for the opportunity to reflect and feel grateful.
“I feel like I’m doing well. I feel bad because there’s so many people who weren’t prepared for this. I think that’s been the hardest part for me, is emotionally being tapped in and being so empathetic and feeling for people,” the 31-year-old explained. “There’s a lot of people right now who are going through it and my little problems ain’t nothing compared to theirs.”
And the Juice singer is relieved to be taking a break from her fast-paced schedule.
“I think it’s cool that we get the opportunity to turn off. My dream is to just take off my nails, not wear make-up and just grow my ‘fro out and walk around naked in my own garden,” she added.
