SZA isn’t hiding the fact that she got a Brazilian butt lift, a risky fat transfer procedure used to enhance the appearance of the butt without implants. After hinting at it in the intro of her SOS album, “That ass so fat, it look natural / It’s not,” SZA confirmed to ELLE that she did get a BBL to surgically enhance her butt. It was her choice, and no one else’s.
“I always wanted a really fat ass with less gym time,” she explained. “I didn’t succumb to industry pressure. I succumbed to my own eyes in the mirror and being like, No, I need some more ass.”
She described her butt as her favorite accessory to play up when she goes out: “I treat my butt like a purse,” she said with a slight smile. “It’s just there to enhance whatever else. And that’s why I paid for it, because it works all by itself.”
SZA also addressed her complicated relationship with fame during her ELLE interview—and how she isn’t quite sure she believes the public’s adoration of her is permanent: “It’s all really fickle….Had the first three shows of my [SOS] tour gone poorly, would the rest of my dates have been sold out? Would those people be outside waiting in line by the time we got to L.A.? No. All it takes is, what, three poorly shot TikTok videos to basically decide that this tour is not worth coming to see. I know that people don’t love me because love is really unconditional, and I’m one scandal away from being canceled indefinitely like anyone else. I’m grateful that they like my art and that it speaks to them, and it connects and tethers all of us together in this weird way. It’s dope, but it’s also still a string that could be cut at any moment. Literally, sometimes there’s no rhyme or reason to it. Remember Susan Boyle? Like, what if I’m Susan Boyle?!”
