Beba Rexha is joining the body-positivity movement with a racy video to match.

The singer posted a video on TikTok in lingerie asking viewers to guess how much she weighed. 

“No one’s business,” flashes across the screen as Rexha struts to rapper Nicki Minaj’s song “Good Form.”

She told viewers it didn’t matter what she weighed and wrote ”let’s normalize 165 lbs.” The video has received over 1 million likes and more than 36,000 comments as of Thursday afternoon.

“So i’m the same weight as you... okay I think I can feel better about myself...” one user commented.

“Looks like a normal body to me. Nice to see that sometimes,” another user said.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reportedthe average weight for a woman is 170.8 pounds.

Other celebrities who have posted about body image include Lizzo, who criticized the body-positivity movement, saying fat people are underrepresented while thin and medium-weight people “co-opted” the movement. 

“Fat people are still getting the short end of this movement,” Lizzo said. “We’re still getting talked about, memed, shamed,” but “no one cares anymore.”

Model Ashley Graham told WSJ Magazine in February she hated constantly discussing her body but continues to because no one discussed it with her growing up. 

“This is why I don’t post like the ‘perfect’ Instagram photos. I keep it real and raw constantly because I want [people] to know that there are women with cellulite, with back fat, with stretch marks... There are a lot of curvy women, plus-size women, fat women, whatever you want to call them.”
