The Truth Hurts hitmaker has revealed that her struggle to find famous role models as a child really messed with her head and made her feel like she didn't belong.
While she's enjoying her success now, 31-year-old Lizzo still struggles with anxiety. She has admitted that she is grateful her fame didn't happen when she was younger as she thinks if she was 21 right now she wouldn't be able to maintain her lifestyle without having major anxiety and panic attacks.
Lizzo appears on one of British Vogue's December covers in a greyscale photo series with a touch of digital flair, dressed in designer haute couture gowns by Versace and Alexandre Vauthier.
Celebrating his two-year anniversary as editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Edward Enninful writes on his Instgram, "Seeing such a positive force for good on our cover in all her glory makes me realise how far we have come."

It brings me great joy to share with you the second of @BritishVogue's December covers: the talented and beautiful musician @LizzoBeeating. This month marks the two year anniversary since my first issue of British Vogue, so it is very special to me. Seeing such a positive force for good on our cover in all her glory makes me realise how far we have come. I'm so pleased that inclusivity remains at the core of British Vogue and that, in the time since I began here, the fashion and publishing industries have started to embrace a much more exciting and diverse idea of who can be a cover star now. Seeing someone as amazing as Lizzo on a magazine cover has at last begun to feel normal. How incredible is that? #Lizzo wears a @Versace dress, @AdrienneLandau feather boa, @Chopard earrings, @Wempe and @VerduraJewelry rings and @TiffanyAndCo bracelet.
