The “About Damn Time” superstar took to TikTok on Friday (Jan. 6) to share a video, in which she’s seen glowing in a bikini and a high ponytail. “The discourse around bodies is officially tired,” she shouts at the camera. “I’ve seen comments go from, ‘Oh my gosh, I liked you when you were thick.

“I feel very lucky because I don’t feel that weight gain is bad anymore. Nor is weight loss — it’s neutral.”
President Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” It was true then and it’s true today — on great issues like politics and governance and, closer to home, for America’s music community.
