In a recent interview, Lizzo discussed how a toxic relationship impacted her feelings of self-worth.
At the age of 19 a boyfriend pressured her to lose weight to fit his ideal image of the "perfect partner."
She tried to lose the weight but she said she couldn't just wake up and be someone else.
She then suffered heartbreak again but at least she was able to channel that heartbreak into a hit album.
She said most of the songs on 'Cuz I Love You' were inspired by another guy who broke her heart.
She said that she has come to terms with body dysmorphia and has evolved.
