Lizzo clarifies what she meant by the “I’m quitting” comments

US pop star Lizzo has assured her fans she is not giving up on the music industry – after previously saying she was tired of being ridiculed online.

The About Damn Time singer made headlines after she ended a Instagram post last week with “I didn’t sign up for this shit. I quit” — after she said she was “being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet.”

But in a new video on Tuesday, the 35-year-old clarified that what she meant was “stop paying attention to negative energy” and not singing or writing songs.

“What I won’t give up is the joy of my life, which is making music that connects people,” she said in a video on social media.

She continued, “If I can give just one person the inspiration or motivation to stand up for themselves and say stop letting negative people win, let negative comments win, then I have accomplished even more than that.” I would have hoped for.”

“With that being said, I will continue to move forward, I will continue to be myself.”

The Grammy winner also thanked fans for the love she received, adding that it “means more than you think.”

Lizzowhose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson sued last August by ex-dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez, who accused her of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

At the time, she described the allegations as “crushingly difficult and overwhelmingly disappointing,” adding that the claims were “as unbelievable as they sound.”

In her March 30 post, Lizzo said she “constantly struggles with lies being told about me to gain influence and views…and being the butt of jokes every time because of my appearance.”

A day before the statement, a lawyer representing the three former dancers who filed the lawsuit against the singer said it was “shameful” that she led a Radio City fundraiser for President Joe Biden “amid such outrageous allegations.”
