Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll have noticed the massive impact that Lizzo is having on the music industry. From her incredible lyrics and her infectious beats to her message of self-love, she's the breath of fresh air that we've all been waiting for. And Lizzo's live performances at the BET Awards and the VMAs made fans of A-listers like Rihanna and Queen Latifah. Even Beyonce can't resist her charms! And to top it all off, Lizzo was even crowned as TIME's Entertainer of the Year.

But things aren't all sunshine and rainbows for the talented star. She has her fair share of haters and the lastest to criticize her is none other than the former host of The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels.

Keep scrolling to see the video on what she had to say.

Lizzo was born Melissa Viviane Jefferson in Detroit in 1988.

She's been making music for a long time (her debut album came out in 2013) but she's only hit the mainstream fairly recently.

Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is a total masterpiece.

But it's not just the brilliant music that she makes that has garnered Lizzo such a legion of fans. There's so much more to the star.

For one thing, she's totally unique.


Which other plus-size, dance-trained, hip-hop artist plays the flute in almost all of her songs? Truly, Lizzo is one of a kind.

But what's even more important than her talent?

It's gotta be Lizzo's incredible message. Her lyrics are all designed to inspire self-love and confidence - particularly in young women. In a world of problematic messages, she's a real force for good.

And the internet has responded.

Social media is rife with jokes about how we are all now trying to love ourselves - if only to make Lizzo proud. Hey, any motivator makes for a good start!

In June, Lizzo stormed the stage at the BET Awards.

She performed her hit single "Truth Hurts," wearing a leotard-wedding-dress - and blew the collective minds of the entire audience.

She started the performance atop a giant wedding cake.

Lizzo then proceeded to remove her veil and gown, dance like no one was watching, and even include an impressively intricate flue solo. We have to stan.

And eagle-eyed fans noticed one thing.

There was one audience member at the BET Awards who was truly losing her mind over Lizzo's performance - a certain Rihanna.

And that hasn't been the end of Lizzo's stage domination.

She also performed at the MTV Video Music Awards - and, again, blew the internet's collective mind. For one thing, the stage was decorated with a giant inflatable booty.

Lizzo performed a medley of her greatest hits.

And, to finish, also managed to preach a message of self-love to the eagerly awaiting audience.

And yet again, Lizzo was making famous fans.

At the VMAs, the audience was pretty much all going wild for Lizzo - including one Queen Latifah.

And, again, Rihanna offered her support to Lizzo.

In one NSFW Instagram message, Lizzo claims that Rihanna "said I f**ked the stage like it was my side b***h. Don't get mad, Rihanna. I am not trying to blow up your spot, but that was a hard a** line! I might take that line."

And that's not Lizzo's only famous fan.

Incredibly, the POTUS in our hearts, Barack Obama, tweeted his and Michelle's (incredibly cool) summer playlist - and you best believe it included our gal.

And, understandably, Lizzo was blown away.

Oddly enough, she had tweeted earlier in the day about her love for Obama. Sometimes the universe really seems to work in mysterious ways.

Late last year, Lizzo was cemented as a tue icon.

The star was named as TIME's Entertainer of the Year.

Her win was so important...

The star has been recognized for her trailblazing message of body positivity, advocacy for self-love, and her "relentlessly positive and impossibly catchy" sound.

It's a truly impressive achievement.

"Attending a Lizzo concert feels like worshipping at the church of self-love, if your preacher was a pop star living joyfully in a big black body, delivering a sermon of self-acceptance that’s as frank as it is accessible," author, Samantha Irby, wrote for TIME magazine.

Lizzo opened up to the magazine about being an advocate for body positivity:

“I’ve been doing positive music for a long-ass time. Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream! How could we have guessed something like this would happen when we’ve never seen anything like this before?" the songstress told TIME.

People can't get enough of the songstress.

Fans are suitably thrilled at the star's big win.

But it seems life isn't all positivity for Lizzo.

And a few weeks ago, fans of the singer have been faced with some sad news.

Lizzo is no stranger to online abuse.

But it seems it's all got on top of her, leading her to take drastic action this week.

Many were saddened by the news.

It never feels good to think the trolls have won.

Even though she's tried to minimize the hate online, it seems to be continuing in real life.

Some women aren't about supporting other women when they're successful and instead, they opt to tear them down. And Jillian Michales is one of them.

The former host of The Biggest Loser had some horrid things to say about Lizzo.

On Wednesday, Michaels found herself in hot water after she fat-shamed the singer on Buzzfeed News.

On the topic of body-positivity, she highlighted this:

"Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren't we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes."

And then she tried to defend her point:

"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.’ Why do I even care? Why is it my job to care about her weight?"

Oh, Jillian, we see right through you...

The thing with Lizzo is, her music comes hand in hand with her message and if you can't respect both, you're bringing too many negative vibes to the table. Cough, Jillian, cough.

The host tweeted about the comment later saying:

Alex Berg said: "What I was going to say here is that Lizzo has been incredibly important in giving so many of us a possibility model for accepting our bodies as we are and celebrating bodies that are normally ridiculed. [I] had to restrain myself from defending Lizzo's honor!"

The clip has now gone viral online with many people pushing back against Michaels' comments.

"Jillian Michaels hates her own body and is worried that if other people hate their bodies less, they'll stop buying the shit she peddles. She's worried about the bottom line, not Lizzo's health (or yours, or mine.)"

Lizzo deserves better.
