Lizzo Clarifies Her Recent Statement About Quitting

On Tuesday, April 2, Lizzo took to Instagram to share a video with fans. In the clip, the singer explained that when she said she “quit,” she meant that she quit giving attention to any “negative energy.”

“When I say, ‘I quit,’ I mean, I quit giving any negative energy attention,” she explained. “What I’m not going to quit is the joy of my life — which is making music, which is connecting to people ’cause I know I’m not alone.”

Lizzo explained that she knows she isn’t the only person dealing with negative thoughts.

“If I can just give one person the inspiration or motivation to stand up for themselves and say they quit letting negative people win — negative comments win, then I’ve done even more than I could’ve hoped for,” the singer said.

Here’s What The Singer Initially Said

As The Shade Room previously reported, on March 30, Lizzo took to Instagram to share an emotional statement with fans. In the post, she explained that she was “tired” of “being dragged” by everyone in her life and on the internet.

Additionally, the singer explained that she is “constantly up against lies” and “didn’t sign up for this s**t.”

Ultimately, Lizzo ended her message with, “I QUIT.”

In response, the singer’s message led many, such as outlets like Fox News and The Telegraph, to believe her message about quitting was related to her music career.

To note, the 35-year-old initially came under fire in August 2023, per The Shade Room. At the time, a lawsuit was filed against Lizzo, accusing her of sexually harassing and weight-shaming her backup dancers.

Then, in September 2023, the allegations against the singer intensified after a fashion designer filed a sexual harassment and discrimination suit against Lizzo.

To date, the singer has denied all of the allegations against her.
