American entertainer, Lizzo has chosen to speak out after much back lash surrounding her attire at a basketball game. 

The "Truth Hurts" singer made a stir after sitting court-side for the Los Angeles Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves game on Sunday night.

While the Lakers Girls performed to her song "Juice," she twerked along to her track, revealing that she was wearing a cut-out T-shirt dress that showed off her rear end. Underneath the dress, Lizzo wore a pair of fishnet tights and a black thong to match.

Footage of the moment was captured and immediately shared all over the internet.

Some people online thought it was funny, while others thought she was doing just a bit too much.

Lizzo is known for promoting body positive messages for full-figured women as well showing off her curves on social media. But following Sunday's game, the public has asked her to tone it down.

On Monday, she took to her Instagram live to talk about the release of her music video for her single "Good As Hell," and while expressing her happiness she decided to address her critics.

She said:

"This is who I've always been, now everyone's looking at it, and your criticism can remain your criticism. Your criticism has no effect on me, negative criticism has no stake in my life, no control over my life, over my emotions. I'm the happiest I've ever been, I'm surrounded by love, and also want to spread that love, and spread these cheeks."

However, people are still split over how to feel about the Singer's actions.
