Today we’re going to talk about nipple safety.
It’s not a topic we normally cover here, but thanks to Lizzo, it’s something that Instagram is suddenly deeply passionate about.
The multi-talented and much-loved celebrity managed to get herself into a situation we can all sympathize with if you think about it. Who among us hasn’t gotten a band-aid or adhesive bandage stuck to us? Peeling them off of your skin can be incredibly painful!
Imagine what Lizzo was feeling when she found herself with a pastie stuck to her nipple – for a few days.
Every single nurse, parent of rambunctious kids, model, dancer, athlete, performer, or person who’s had more than a few scrapes in their life just went “You have to oil it! Adhesive breaks down with oil!”
Lizzo is a professional, folks. She did oil it. Still stuck.
So the 32-year-old turned to social media with a video plea to ask the people for help. In it, she tries to remove the pastie a few times while she explains the situation.
Her nipple situation may be a mess, but her sense of humor was perfectly intact. She captioned the vid by jokingly calling it a sneak peek at her OnlyFans.
Things went … painfully.
Take a moment to listen to the emotion in Lizzo’s voice:
“I’ve put oil on it. Oh my god. It hurts so bad, you guys. What do I do? I think I’m taking off the skin.”
It’s one of those situations where you either laugh, cry, or both. Lizzo (and fans) opted for both. There were tears, slurping sounds, and more than a few meme-worthy facial expressions.
And it’s not just Lizzo. Apparently lots of people get themselves stuck in these things!
The comments were full of people giving her advice. Lizzo’s fans seriously care about nipple wellness – and seriously hate adhesive.
We don’t know what worked in the end, but Lizzo was kind enough to let us all know that she did eventually free herself from her pastie prison.
Should you find yourself in the same predicament, the manufacturer recommends loosening the adhesive with warm water before attempting to remove them.
