Lizzo says "I Quit." She's tired of "being dragged"

Lizzo has called out her critics.

The musician, 35, shared a lengthy statement on her Instagram page Friday expressing that she's "getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet."

"All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it," the Grammy winner continued. "But I'm starting to feel like the world doesn't want me in it. I'm constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views ... being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look."

Lizzo added that her character has been "picked apart by people who don't know me and [are] disrespecting my name."

She ended her message by writing, "I didn't sign up for this s--t — I QUIT ✌🏾."

PEOPLE has reached out to Lizzo's rep for comment.

While the singer didn't reveal what prompted the statement, the post's comment section was filled with encouraging messages from her peers.

Latto wrote, "The ppl need u Lizzo. I remember U made me keep going when I wanted to quit before. Ur soul is SO pure f--- these ppl that don't know you! TEAM LIZZO 4L." Loni Love commented, "Girl don't let them win… stay off the internet.. hug up yo man… keep working."

The post was shared nearly two months after the singer's attempt to dismiss a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against her by three of her former background dancers was denied.

Last November, the performer got candid with her fans, explaining in an Instagram post that she was taking time to focus on herself.

"Hi. I'm working.. on music, myself, relationships with people and food, my anxiety, my body, my business, and my trust issues with the world.. but they are deep now, deeper than they've ever been. Xoxo," wrote Lizzo.

At the start of the new year, she revealed a new slimmed-down figure in an Instagram video as she modeled her shapewear brand Yitty's leggings and sports bras.

"We're putting ourselves first this year you guys. You don't have to wait to feel like the best version of yourself. New year, new me," said Lizzo in the clip.

On Sunday, she asked her fans to "give me a lil more time" before releasing new music.

"I’m almost ready to be a normal human again… to be outside.. to love and trust people.. to try and make new friends… to go on live 👀… to sing and talk about my pain and joy… just give me a lil more time," wrote Lizzo on Instagram.

FYI for the unfamiliar. A lawsuit is going forward alleging that Lizzo forced her backup dancers into sex acts while at an Amsterdam club, and they felt they couldn’t refuse because she was their boss and had power over them. (Other allegations that were part of the original lawsuit, like Lizzo fatshaming the women, were not deemed legally actionable by the judge overseeing the case.)

Lizzo’s not being bullied for her appearance, or even facing criticism for her music. Songs about empowerment and self esteem land differently when there’s credible reason to believe the singer is a shit person, and being a boss who pressures employees to eat bananas out of a sex worker’s pussy is the kind of behavior that should be penalized. That this allegation is still moving forward in the courts when other allegations have been dropped there’s reason to believe it for now. If Lizzo is legally vindicated, the tide of public opinion will turn.

Did they at least try to refuse? Did they ask what the consequences would be for refusing?

R16, I invite you to read the comments on the announcements on any platform you care to look at (including right here in this thread) to see that the number one response has to do with her appearance. So yeah, you're wrong.

by Anonymousreply 20March 30, 2024 7:44 PM

She'll never quit. She went out there and made a spectacle of herself time and time again - even though she looked RIDICULOUS in this skimpy outfits with such a shitty body.

And yes - she has a shitty body. It's just FAT - no shape, small tits, literally unremarkable and unattractive. And she has MILLIONS of dollars to get into shape and to look better.

Like all fat people with this 'up for fat people - we're beautiful no matter what you say' faux confidence, she knows she's wrong and hates her body and her lack of self control.

SZA embracing her at the Grammys was a clear reboot moment! Why, the NYTimes is ready to talk about her swimwear line.

Yes, she was a mean boss and made a dancer feel like she had to attend a show at a raunchy strip club in Amsterdam.

3 presidents want her back too. I guess I'm a Lizzo apologist but I don't think she did anything too crazy or career ending. She got dragged more than sufficiently. Everyone who was already hating her for her weight was right there ready to tear her down. Let her put out another record.

R19, if you’re someone’s employer and that employment is based in the United States, you are committing a legally actionable offense against employees if you take them to a sex club in any country and encourage them to participate in the act. If the boss was paying and this was a work event for the group, the circumstances are coercive. A judge has granted a case can move forward, it has nothing to do with whether and how the employees protested in the moment.

If Lizzo was the type of artist known for singing about things like going to sex shows and taking part in activities with her entourage, her fans might not care, but since she’s associated with empowering messages people who liked that about her are disappointed and consider her a hypocrite.

It was supposed to be a fun night out and a gag! Serves me right for hiring some churchy uptight dancer girl who can't hang!

R28, what do you think empowerment from pop stars looks like these days? Lizzo's whole thing was a little raunchy and sex positive. It was a group of women. If Madonna invites her dancers to a club like that do they freak out? The accusers sounded a little whiny to me.. I mean no one wants to be pressured into doing things in a work context of course.

Not to harp on this but here I go. the main complaint included the rehearsal where they had all underperformed and weren't allowed to leave the rehearsal stage and the one girl pissed herself. I'm willing to believe the situation was too demanding or unprofessional though no one ever said being a touring dancer was easy. Pissing yourself is on you [sic]. You don't need or want a job where you're not allowed to use the bathroom! We're in Gen Z doesn't want to work territory guys. The girl sounded more delusional than Lizzo. Her dancing career was passed off like she'd even have one without Lizzo. Who needs to hire you? Now other pop stars are on board with dancers of size but fat dancers were not previously in demand!
