Lizzo is struggling to accept her natural hair but eventually wants to ditch wigs and weaves.

The Juice hitmaker, real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson, is an exuberant and confident character during her gigs and appearances on the red carpet.

However, Lizzo explained during a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she is on a “journey” to self-love and wants to fully embrace her own tresses.

“The final frontier for me is the wigs and the weaves – my natural hair, my natural state truly,” she candidly shared. “I’m working on it. It’s a struggle. We’re not there yet. There’s no top of the mountain for self-love. It’s a journey that continues forever, so I think it’s a part of it. You gotta love that part. That’s the juiciest part of you though.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Lizzo explained that she is open to stripping away costumes and cosmetics too, as she is adamant everyone should be able to embrace their nude bodies.

“Loving who you are should start in the buff. You should essentially, by the end of your self-love journey, be completely in love with who you are with no make-up, no extra hair, no styling, no corsetry. That’s my opinion for my life – I don’t think anybody should have to subscribe to that,” the 31-year-old mused. “But I feel like if I can love that person, then anything else is possible within the spectrum of self-love. My skin, my face, no make-up – that’s fine.”

And the singer, who wore a House of Holland wood-grain inspired outfit – complete with matching nails – to the BET Awards back in June, revealed she loves turning “jokes” into offbeat ensembles.

“I really love my team, my creative team: hair, make-up, styling. We get to just really play around. We love exploring with colour, shapes, motifs, big ideas, and jokes. Turning jokes into a red carpet look is what we do best. My personality, you can see it. I don’t even have to say nothing. I walk into a room and you know what’s up,” Lizzo smiled.
