A Lizzo fan penned a book all about how we can live ‘the Lizzo Way’, and why didn’t we think of this sooner!?
Lizzo is an International beacon of joy – with her carefree attitude and candid approach to mental health, the ‘Truth Hurts’ singer has amassed millions of fans thanks to her honest lyrics and self-loving outlook.
After being the kind of ultimate inspiration all pop stars should take note of, a Lizzo fan decided to write a book all about how we can be a bit more Lizzo.
Titled Live the Lizzo Way, author and Lizzo superfan Natty Kasamba said she wrote the book after it started as “a cool challenge” in summer 2020 but progressed with it as a book when it “morphed into something far more than that.”
She said on Twitter: “Guys I wrote a gift book last summer that’s out in the world tomorrow! [27 May] it’s a fun lil illustrated gen z self-help book inspired by lizzo, published via the publishing goats @harpercollins… Emotional to see my name printed on something so permanent.”
“This commission started out as a cool challenge but by the end morphed into something far more than that for me.
“Really tried to create the kind of book I needed as a kid, grappling with issues of body-confidence, love of self and others, individuality and mental health.”
Natty added that, “if it helps even one young buck, that’s dream job done.”
