Singer Lizzo says she can no longer stand being “dragged through the mud” by her detractors: “I’m stopping”

American singer Lizzo wrote in an Instagram post on Friday, March 29, that she was fed up with being the target of “lies.” “I'm tired of having to put up with being dragged through the mud by everyone in my life and on the Internet,” explains the singer and flautist. “I didn’t sign up for this bullshit – I’m stopping,” she said at the conclusion of her message, without specifying whether this announced departure concerns her entire musical activity or her presence on social networks.

Melissa Viviane Jefferson, her real name, adored by her fans for her defense of overweight people and self-esteem, faces a complaint filed last year by former dancers, who accuse her of harassment and discrimination.

“The world doesn’t want me.”

“All I want to do is make music and make people happy,” Lizzo wrote Friday. But I'm starting to believe that the world doesn't want me. » “I am constantly confronted with lies about myself”, and mocked “for my appearance”, she added. “My personality is dissected by people who don’t know me and insult my name. »

Earlier this month, Lizzo wrote in another Instagram post that she was writing one of her "best pieces of music" and "can't wait" to get it heard. “I'm almost ready to be a normal person again...to be outside...to love and trust people,” she added. Last year, she won the award for best recording of the year at the Grammy Awards, the equivalent of the Oscars for the American music industry, thanks to her song About Damn Time.
