Boosie Badazz Predicts An Entirely Gay World In Heated DaBaby Rant Instagram Lizzo Breaks Down In Tears After Criticism Over Cardi B 'Rumors' Video: 'It's Fat-Phobic, Racist + Hurtful' Published on:Aug 16, 2021, 10:13 AM by 9 For all of the success Lizzohas attained over the last few years, some people just cant stop focusing on her appearance, as if her weight somehow defines who she is. The Grammy Award-winning artist debut her new video for Rumors featuring Cardi Blast week and was faced with a flood of negative comments targeting her body. In an vulnerable moment, Lizzo took her sorrow to Instagram Live and confessed sometimes the hate penerates her usual coat of armor and Sunday (August 15) was one of those days. Sitting in her bathroom with tears streaming down her face, Lizzo opened up about how all the negativity has been affecting her. On the days I feel I should be the happiest, I feel so down, she said. Like, I hurt so hard. Ive been working triple time, quadruple time, doing like 12 hours a day of promos and interviews, doing interviews, going to the studio with a fucking root canalrehearsal, then filming every single day, shooting a documentary and Im still writing music. A post shared by Lizzo (@lizzobeeating) Lizzo continued, Sometimes I feel like the world just dont love me back. Its like it doesnt matter how much positive energy you put into the world, youre still going to have people who have something mean to say about you. And for the most part it doesnt hurt my feelings; I dont care. I just think when Im working this hard, my tolerance gets lower. My patience is lower. Im more sensitive and it gets to me. While Lizzo didnt specify exactly what the messages said, she did note, Im not even going to say them, to give them power. She added, People saying shit about me that just doesnt even make sense. Its fat-phobic, and its racist and its hurtful. If you dont like my music, cool. If you dont like Rumors the song, cool. But a lot of people dont like me because of the way I look. Lizzo has been here before, and she typically is able to fend off her haterswith relative ease and a healthy dose of sarcasm. Toward the end of the video, she started to collect herself and return to the strong, confident woman shes presented to the world countless times. For the people that just always have something negative to say about me, that has nothing to do with music, or the content of my character, or me as an artist, and just has everything to do with my body or whatever trope you think I fall into suck my pussy from behind, she said. Cause yall muthafuckas gonna be the ones thats catching up. I strive for joy every single day but on the way to joy you get sadness, you get exhaustion, you get anger, you get annoyed, you get tired and insecure. On the road to joy theres all these pit stops, and right now Im just over it. Im over it. The 33-year-old then made a promise to herself with, Im only going to focus on positive comments from here on out. I dont have time for your negativity, your internalized self-hatred that you protect onto me with your racism and your fat phobia. I dont have time for it. Anyways, Im going to continue to be me. Im going to be continue to be a bad bitch. As Lizzo wrapped up her video, she thanked her supporters for streaming Rumors and running up the YouTube views, but explicitly stated what she wont tolerate. What I wont accept is yall doing this to Black women over and over and over again especially us big Black girls, she said. When we dont fit into the box you want to put us in, you just unleash hatred on us. Its not cool.
