Fitness expert and personal trainer Jillian Michaels has a message for fans of Lizzo, a singer whose chart-topping anthems preach self-love: celebrate her music, not her body.

“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music?” Michaels asked during a Wednesday appearance on BuzzFeed News’s morning show, “AM to DM.” “’Cause it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

Michaels’s comments — part of a larger discussion on health, wellness and body positivity — went viral Wednesday as critics accused the 45-year-old, who rose to fame as a coach on NBC’s controversial weight-loss competition, “The Biggest Loser,” of being “fatphobic.” A 43-second clip of the interview has been watched more than 2.4 million times as of early Thursday.

By Wednesday night, widespread backlash prompted Michaels to issue a response, clarifying her remarks to stress that while people “are all beautiful, worthy, and equally deserving,” she also strongly believes that “we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity - heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few.”

“I would never wish these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies,” Michaels wrote in a statement shared on Twitter.

Michaels’s troubles began Wednesday morning when “AM to DM” co-host Alex Berg brought up the fitness guru’s concerns about “political correctness” in the health world. Michaels has publicly condemned fat-shaming but has also cautioned against going too far in the opposite direction, telling Women’s Health UK last year that “obesity in itself is not something that should be glamourised.”

Jillian Michaels says Lizzo ' s body shouldn't be ' celebrated ', is accused of body -shaming. The celebrity trainer, best known for her stint on "The Biggest Loser," stirred up controversy Wednesday during an appearance on BuzzFeed News’ " AM to DM" by questioning why Lizzo ' s body is praised.

In Wednesday’s interview, Michaels doubled down on her stance.

“We should always be inclusive, but you cannot glorify obesity. It’s dangerous,” she said. “Now, it’s like, ‘Ah, that woman is 250 pounds, good for her!’ … It shouldn’t be one way or the other. It’s really no one’s business to comment. It’s not something you should judge. It’s not something you should celebrate.”

The conversation then turned to Lizzo when Berg mentioned how much she enjoyed seeing plus-size celebrities, such as the 31-year-old singer and the model Ashley Graham, preaching body positivity and promoting their images — “bodies that we don’t get to see being celebrated.”

Michaels interjected, cutting Berg off to ask why people don’t just celebrate Lizzo’s music. The singer, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, has emerged as a vocal body-positivity advocate with hit songs featuring lyrics such as, “If I’m shinin’, everybody gonna shine” and “I do my hair toss/ Check my nails/ Baby how you feelin’?/ Feelin’ good as hell.”

Anne Hathaway Debuts Post-Baby Body at Critics' Choice Awards After 2nd Baby

  Anne Hathaway Debuts Post-Baby Body at Critics' Choice Awards After 2nd Baby Bye-bye, bump! Anne Hathaway debuted her post-baby body at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards after giving birth to her second child with Adam Shulman. The actress, 37, stunned on the red carpet in a plunging gold sparkling gown with a slouchy top and a fitted bottom. News broke in December that the Oscar winner and the actor had welcomed their second child when the couple were spotted carrying a newborn baby in a carrier. Their 3-year-old son, Jonathan, walked by his parents’ side. Surprise!  The infant’s arrival came five months after the Devil Wears Prada star announced that she was pregnant. “It’s not for a movie. #2,” Hathaway captioned a July mirror selfie on Instagram. “All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love.” The New York native joked about her pregnancy brain the following week. “I’m pregnant and I don’t remember what I say from minute to minute,” she told Us Weekly and other reporters. When asked a specific question about appearing in 2017’s Colossal, the Emmy winner said, “My brain won’t let me go there right now. I’m sorry. Somebody’s eating it.” Hathaway and Shulman wed in 2012 and welcomed their eldest four years later. The Golden Globe winner first opened up about her and her husband’s family plans the year they tied the knot, telling Telegraph: “I’m 30 and I want to have a family of a certain size.

.@ JillianMichaels on Lizzo : " Why are we celebrating her body ? Why does it matter? “ Why are we celebrating her body ? Why does it matter? That’ s what I’m saying. The only reason we know who Jillian Michaels is , is because of a reality show where people used incredibly unhealthy practices in While asking " why is it my job to care about her weight" you sure found a lot to say about her weight.

“I’m just being honest,” Michaels said. “I love her music. My kid loves her music. But there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘I’m so glad that she’s overweight.’”

Michaels later added: “If you said to me, ‘Hey, Lizzo can live to be 90 and motivate people, or she can die at 60 and motivate people,’ why wouldn’t I say I hope she’s as healthy as she can be? It’s not about saying that I don’t respect her, I don’t think she’s awesome. I absolutely do. But I also would hate to see her get sick.”

Lizzo’s supporters, however, interpreted Michaels’s comments as an attempt to “fat-shame” the singer, who has been candid about overcoming body image issues. Just days before Michaels’s interview aired, Lizzo announced that she would be taking a break from Twitter, citing “too many trolls” as the reason for her hiatus.

“Stop concern-trolling fat people and get in the bin,” actress and activist Jameela Jamil tweeted Wednesday, including an emoji of a person throwing away trash.

Several people highlighted Lizzo’s high-energy performances as evidence of her health, noting that she not only sings, raps and dances but also plays the flute onstage.

Yikes! Colton Underwood Shades 'The Bachelor' Over Engagement Ring

  Yikes! Colton Underwood Shades 'The Bachelor' Over Engagement Ring Yikes! Colton Underwood Shades 'The Bachelor' Over Engagement RingThe reality star, 27, opened up about the ordeal during an Instagram Story Q&A on Friday, December 20. “NOT a ‘get engaged’ q but do u still have the Neil Lane ring from the bachelor?” a fan asked.

“ Why are we celebrating her body ? Why does it matter? Her response has already been slammed on the platform, similar to her original statement about Lizzo ’ s weight. Jillian Michaels came to prominence torturing fat people on television for entertainment.

Few people better exemplify The Biggest Loser’s inherent flaws than its breakout star Jillian Michaels . She won’t appear in the reboot, which is set to premiere on USA Network sometime this year, but Michaels continues to push the toxic viewpoint that fueled “ Why are we celebrating [ Lizzo ’ s ] body ?

“Do let us know when you can twerk and play the flute at the same time, Jillian,” one person tweeted. “Until then, shut your mouth.”

Critics also rushed to lambaste Michaels for her controversial career as a personal trainer, pointing to her time on “The Biggest Loser,” where she became known for her “tough love” motivational style. One 2016 article from the Guardian reported that “Jillian Michaels’s tactics wreaked havoc on show contestants,” adding that she often “verbally threatened” and “hurled insults” at participants on her team. (A reboot of “The Biggest Loser” is slated to premiere later this year on the USA Network. Michaels is not taking part.)

“If I had been exposed to more Lizzo and less Jillian Michaels when I was younger, maybe I wouldn’t have spent half my life hating my body,” one Twitter user wrote.

But others defended Michaels.

Comedian Josh Denny tweeted, “As an overweight fat person, I [100 percent] agree with @JillianMichaels about Lizzo."

“Accepting being fat is the same as accepting being poor or unsuccessful,” Denny wrote. “Nobody wants it; it’s a matter of how hard we want to change it. But stop disguising ‘giving up’ as ‘acceptance.’”

Michaels’s fans were equally supportive when she addressed the controversy Wednesday evening, but her statement did little to sway detractors, who demanded that she apologize to Lizzo.

“Jillian, you were on a show called ‘The Biggest Loser’ that destroyed the health and mental wellbeing of fat folks, exploiting their suffering — not to mention glamorizing self-destruction and disordered eating for countless others,” one person tweeted. “That is the OPPOSITE of self-love and health.”
