Eat the Cake Too Column with Carmen Rene: I don’t want to be brave. And neither does Lizzo! 

“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not. I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy. If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.” — Lizzo, in Glamour
