Betty Who in One-Piece Workout Gear Says "Happy Pride"

She shared  a video on Instagram of herself doing a Pride gig.

Betty Who is a very successful singer. She is known for singing the theme for Netflix's Queer Eye. Who is also known for her hit song, "Somebody Loves You." A few weeks ago, she shared  a video on Instagram of herself doing a Pride gig. Who captioned the post, "Happy Pride!" How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Betty Who stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She's Positive

Who talked about her creative process with Clash Magazine. "Something I think about a lot is legacy, and the energy that you put out into the world and getting that energy back. It's really important to me that the majority of the energy I put out into the world is really positive… I want you to start this record and hear the theme song. I'm not trying to trick anybody into thinking I'm this cool pop star who has a divorce record coming at you, and I'm gonna name names! Being big, that's the theme. Let's start there."


She's Confident

In an interview with Billboard, Who opened up about finding confidence in herself. "I have had that experience so singularly and specifically being a very tall woman," she says. "But also, like, so many people feel exactly the same way about themselves that I do. Mine happens to be my height. Other people's is about their hair. Or their weight. Or their feet… So now if I'm put in a power position to be like, 'Look! I'm queer, I'm different and I made it here because I embraced it as opposed to ran away from it for a decade,' I guess that's what I'm trying to manifest."


She Doesn't Subscribe To Traditional Gender Roles

Who tells Billboard that she doesn't subscribe to traditional gender roles. "I was just like, 'Oh, I actually just have to stop subscribing to a bunch of the stuff that I thought I had to be as a woman, and figure out what that means for me,'" she says. "And a lot of it is pulling away from femininity and exploring my masculine side. And then that's allowing me to come full circle back to my divine feminine sensuality – sexuality stuff that has made me a lot more clear about what that is and what's really powerful in me about that. But I definitely live outside of the binary of gender, that's for sure."


She's Vulnerable

Who revealed in her Billboard interview that her album BIG is extremely vulnerable. "I'm allowing myself to be seen," she says. "It feels like the journey to BIG has been gruesome. It's like that shedding of snake skin. It's not, like, painless in the middle of the night for me. It's like the Hulk ripping off clothes, like, fully screaming as I'm becoming my final form."


She Honed Her Craft

Who tells Schon Magazine that she made sure to hone her craft. "I think I spent a lot of time in the early years of my career trying to learn how to be in the business. I always knew how to write songs and sing – that's never been the thing I needed help with. I've gotten better as I've honed my craft, but the thing I had no idea how to do was be a successful business person. How could I have? I was 21 when I signed my record deal with Sony. There has been a lot of trial and error, and a lot of that had to do with my identity: I was writing music to serve this greater entity that was my business as opposed to trying to be an artist and lean into the creative part of me."
