Lizzo took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a powerful message – while posing nude with the American flag.

In a message to her 9.4 million followers, the singer said: "When I think of this country I don't think of its laws I think of its people. I think about how we were raised to be patriotic of violence, propaganda & war. I think about how this country is owned by the oppressor and how the oppressed are locked in a valley of capitalism.

"But I also think of the young people who refuse to be spoon-fed mistruths," she added. "I think of the elders who bucked against hateful prejudices even when it felt impossible... Because of you, I'm still hopeful."

She ended her lengthy post, urging fans to vote. "Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting," she said.

Fans took the comments section of the post, praising the Good As Hell hitmaker for "always inspiring". But it was Whalebone magazine that put it best when they said: "Lizzo for President."
