New call-to-action

2022 People's Champion: Lizzo

2022 has been the year of Lizzo! From her chart-topping songs to her Emmy-winning show, she has truly showcased her vast array of talent. But most importantly, Lizzo has used her power and voice to highlight and bring awareness to issues in today’s society – such as diversity and inclusion.

According to People, “Lizzo was recognized for her "groundbreaking contributions to music and television, as well as her commitment to championing overall diversity and inclusivity across race, gender, sexuality, and size.”

Cassandra Tryon, SVP of Entertainment Live Events, NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming, said, "Lizzo is not only an incredibly talented performer and groundbreaking entertainer, she is also a role model and inspiration to fans worldwide. She leads with kindness, advocates for inclusivity, and champions increased diversity and equity in the industry and beyond. Her commitment to breaking barriers and empowering others to use their own voices to create change makes her a true 'People's Champion.'"

To make the award even more special, it was presented to Lizzo by her mom, Shari, who said, “[Lizzo] has shown us all that we don’t have to conform to anyone’s standards in order to be happy…”

Once on stage, Lizzo accepted the award and took the time to talk and highlight 17 other activities who joined her on stage.

Lizzo said, “To be an icon isn't about how long you've had your platform. Being an icon is what you do with that platform. Ever since the beginning of my career, I've used my platform to amplify marginalized voices. Tonight, I'm sharing this honor.”

Another reason as to why Lizzo won this award is due to her inclusive clothing brand, YITTY. According to yitty.fabletics.com, “YITTY, the revolutionary shapewear brand… [Lizzo has] put her heart and soul into building this game-changing, size-inclusive brand from the ground up — all based on the principles of self-love, radical inner confidence, and effortless, everyday wear... Every single piece is designed to celebrate, hug and love every single body. It blurs the lines of inner and outerwear with intentional-meets-functional designs, sexy silhouettes, and prints you'll want to show off. So, whether you thought you'd never consider shapewear, or swore you'd never wear it again, YITTY brings an entirely new perspective that gives you the option to tell your story with your body.
