Last week everyone was talking about Lizzo posting “I QUIT” on Instagram! Fans started freaking out, thinking she was done with music. But then she posted another video to clear everything up.

Lizzo is one of the biggest pop stars around. All her fans loved her music. Would we never get to hear new tunes from Lizzo? It turns out she wasn’t quitting music at all. In her new video, Lizzo got real emotional. She said posting “I QUIT” was about more than just her career.

 I didn’t sign up for this sh–,” Lizzo reveals in the clip, tearing up as she addresses her loyal followers. “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… my character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name.” While she didn’t clarify what specifically prompted her post, Lizzo has faced ongoing backlash over a lingering lawsuit accusing her of sexual misconduct on tour (allegations she strongly denies).

So what was the Grammy winner really quitting? As it turns out, Lizzo wasn’t leaving the industry – she was just done with the haters. “when I say I quit, I mean, I quit giving any negative energy attention” she explained. “What I’m not gonna quit is the joy of my life, which is making music, which is connecting with people.


However, not everyone is buying Lizzo’s upbeat attitude. The lawsuit plaintiff’s attorney Ron Zambrano has blasted the star, accusing her of deflecting blame and seeking attention with her “outburst.” But Lizzo’s lawyer fired back, hinting the case against her wasn’t going as planned. The chatter online continues to swirl as the scandal simmers.

Through it all, Lizzo insists she won’t let negativity get her down. “In no way, shape or form am I the only person who is experiencing that negative voice that seems to be louder than the positive … I’m going to keep moving forward, I’m going to keep being me,” she declares passionately. With a promising new album reportedly in the works, it seems this queen isn’t quitting the spotlight anytime soon – she’s just done living for the haters’ approval. As Lizzo signs off with a sniffle, it’s clear she’s determined to stay true to herself no matter what drama comes her way.
