Lizzo Clarifies Concerning “I Quit” Message: “I’m Not Gonna Quit the Joy of My Life…Music”

‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker Lizzo had her dedicated fans (affectionately called #Lizzbians) hurt and confused at the notion she was hanging up her boots and retiring from the music industry.

In a shocking rant lifted to social media late last week, the GRAMMY winner declared she “quit” because was “tired of being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet” and that she felt like “the world doesn’t want me in it.”

While not expressly stating she was quitting music, the language suggested in the post still spurred an outpour of support with many of the singer’s supporters even sharing concern about her mental health.

Hoping to ease worries, Liz took to social media on Tuesday (April 2) with clarification on her original statement. Look inside to see what she said.

In a short video posted to Instagram, the 35-year-old expounded on her original “I quit” statement.

“I just need to clarify — when I say I quit, I mean, I quit giving any negative energy attention,” she said. “What I’m not gonna quit is the joy of my life, which is making music, which is connecting with people.”

Later in the message, she tried to offer an encouraging word for her 12.1 million followers.

“I know I’m not alone,” she relayed. “In no way, shape or form am I the only person who is experiencing that negative voice that seems to be louder than the positive … I’m going to keep moving forward, I’m going to keep being me.”

The video comes amid continued criticism for Lizzo and the lawsuit stemming from her alleged involvement in creating a hostile work environment and sexual harassing some of her previous dancers.

Although she denies the claims, that didn’t stop the plaintiffs’ attorney Ron Zambrano from issuing a statement after the singer’s original “I quit” message.

“It’s a joke that Lizzo would say she is being bullied by the internet when she should instead be taking an honest look at herself,” he said of last week’s IG rant. “Her latest post is just another outburst seeking attention and trying to deflect from her own failings as she continues to blame everyone else for the predicament she is in.”
