Michael Jefferson Received A Tribute From Her Daughter

Michael took his last breath in 2009. Back then, her daughter Lizzo was not a known face among everyone. 

But when we see his daughter now, his daughter is a successful rapper and songwriter. 

Michael couldn’t see the success of his daughter when he was alive. 

In 2021, Michael’s daughter Lizzo posted a picture of her dad saying that he would have been proud of her if he had been alive. 

Lizzo was heartbroken as she lost her father too early, and she could not show him her success. 

She also wrote an emotional message to her fan, saying that they value every person in their life when they are with them. 

Lizzo Was Judged For Her Dress Up

Lizzo was caught wearing a dress in which her butt was completely revealed. 

She was spotted in that dress during the Los Angeles Lakers game.  

Her dress-up dragged her into controversy as it offended many people. 

Lizzo took a lot of time to accept herself just the way she is. She was body-shamed in the past as she was over weight. 

So she spoke openly about her dress-up, saying that she wears such dresses. She is not sorry for what she did as she felt like doing. 

She agreed that her butt was revealed in that dress, but she said one could dress however one wanted. 

After a long journey and courage, she liked how her body was, and now again, she doesn’t want to feel bad about that same body. 

Her butt was also one reason behind her insecurities about her body in the past. But now she doesn’t care about it and likes how it is. 

She also said that one could do whatever about the things that bring happiness in their life.
