Lizzo is calling out all the people who made rude comments after she dropped her new music video “Rumors.” The Grammy-winning singer posted a 13-minute video on social media tearfully addressing the hate coming her way.
She went on to say that she’s being fat-shamed and targeted with racist comments after the song’s debut, which features Cardi B and the lyrics themselves seem to address body shaming head on.
People saying s*** about me that just doesn't even make sense. It's fat-phobic, and it's racist and it's hurtful. If you don't like my music, cool. If you don't like 'Rumors' the song, cool. But a lot of people don't like me because of the way I look...It's like it doesn't matter how much positive energy you put into the world, you're still going to have people who have... something mean to say about you. And for the most part it doesn't hurt my feelings; I don't care. I just think when I'm working this hard, my tolerance gets lower. My patience is lower. I'm more sensitive and it gets to me.
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 p**** from behind. 'Cause y'all mother****ers gonna be the ones that's catching up.
Keep shinning girl! You're a star 🌟
