Lizzo Speaks Out Against Texas Anti-Trans & Abortion Legislation: Stay Out Of My Body!

Lizzo is not happy with the current legislative laws being passed in Texas.

While joining The Breakfast Club host Angela Yee as the SXSW keynote speaker, grammy award winning arist Lizzo gave her disapproving thoughts of current legislation in Texas.


“Truth Hurts” singer Lizzo has always advocated for self love, body positivity, and acceptance of all people no matter who they choose to be. The 33-year-old pop singer sang the same tune as the keynote speaker for this years SXSW Conference and Festival at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

During the interview, Lizzo touched on the controversial transgender and abortion legislation happening in her home state of Texas.

She stated:

You know I’m proud to rep Houston, but I’m not proud to rep Texan politics right now. And there are very regressive laws being passed. 

She continued:

They are taking away the right for young children to have a chance to live authentically as themselves. And it’s a violation of human rights, trans rights are human rights.

Texas governor Greg Abbott recently passed statewide policy affecting transgender children and their families, and restricting abortion access. The transgender law determined that some medical treatments for transgender children (such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy) could “legally constitute child abuse”. Both laws have received substantial legal pushback.

Lizzo furthered the discussion, exclaiming that human bodies are not political, and that government should “stay out of women’s uterus” stating:

“We got a lot of other things ya’ll need to be handling instead of ya’ll being in people’s homes telling them what to do with they body and being all in they uterus. Get yo m–f–ng, – mind your business.

She continues:

“The abortion ban is atrocious as well. Mind your business. Stay out of my body. This is not political!”


During the conference, the “Rumors” artist also revealed that she has a new album on the way and promoted “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,” her new reality competition series.
