Lizzo attends The 2023 Met Gala Celebrating "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 01, 2023 in New York City.

Lizzo is tired of the body-shaming on Twitter. After reading a series of tweets aimed at her, the Grammy winner reveals that she’s considering quitting the music industry. Lizzo, 35, responded to a viral tweet (now deleted) of the musician’s recent concert tribute to the late Tina Turner. Back in April, the same Twitter user wrote: “The naked obese picture of Lizzo is disgusting. This is extremely unhealthy and will inevitably lead to an early death. Much like anorexia this must be called out.”

Lizzo’s “Brand”

The “Truth Hurts” singer clapped back at the Twitter user. “I JUST logged on… and this is the type of s— I see about me on a daily basis. It’s really starting to make me hate the world. Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food.’ I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO… I’m tired of explaining myself all the time and I just wanna get on this app w/out seeing my name in some bulls—.”

Lizzo shared another tweet that said being fat was her “brand.” In response, she said, “Y’all really need to touch grass… I’m not trying to BE fat. I’m not trying to BE smaller.” She continued, “I’m literally just trying to live and be healthy.” She said that this is her body when she eats “super clean and working out.” But the critics “speak on s— y’all know NOTHING ABOUT and I’m starting to get heated.”

The Followup

In a follow-up tweet, the Detroit native called it “crazy” that the “love definitely do not outweigh the hate on social media.” Then, the singer dropped a bombshell. She said she is so “close to giving up on everything and quitting and enjoying my money and my man on a F—ING FARM…”

Lizzo is currently on her Special tour, which kicked off last fall. She will be playing in New York tonight (June 9). She then heads to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan until the end of July.

Lizzo's Historic Crystal Flute Jam Made Some People Mad

Lizzo’s historic performance using a 200-year-old crystal flute in hand has sent the internet in a frenzy. As we earlier reported, the singer and rapper became the first person to play the crystal flute that was made for the 4th U.S. President James Madison in 1813 on Tuesday night (September 27). Lent to Lizzo by the Library of Congress, the flute was crafted by the Parisian watchmaker and mechanic Claude Laurent in 1813, before making its way to Madison.

On a day that the Library of Congress was closed to the public, Lizzo spent an afternoon exploring its massive flute collection and trying out several of the historical instruments.

“She is amazingly talented,” said Carol Lynn Ward-Bamford, who serves as the library’s curator for the flute collection. She said she handed Lizzo more than a half dozen different types of flutes and she could play them all. The library has the largest flute collection in the world.

Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of Congress, sent Lizzo an invite via Twitter, writing to the artist, “The @librarycongress has the largest flute collection in the world with more than 1,800,” Hayden tweeted last week. “It incl Pres James Madison’s 1813 crystal flute. @lizzo we would love for you to come see it and even play a couple when you are in DC next week. Like your song they are ‘Good as hell’” with a winking face emoji.

When it came time for her performance, Lizzo told the crowd, “I want everybody to make some noise for James Madison’s crystal flute, y’all! Bitch, I’m scared.” As her very long nails made their way over the instrument, she added to the screaming crowd, “It’s crystal, it’s like playing out of a wine glass, so be patient.” After playing the smoothest note and getting the audience’s approval, Lizzo cheekily sticks her tongue out to the crowd and gets back to playing the crystal flute some more while adding some leg gyrating.

After successfully not dropping the historical artifact, she raised the crystal up with a face of astonishment and happiness before returning it to the Library of Congress people. “Bitch, I just twerked and played James Madison’s crystal flute from the 1800s. We just made history tonight! Thank you to the Library of Congress for preserving our history and making history freaking cool! History is freaking cool, you guys.”

As the Library of Congress assured concerned people, they wrote: “Music Division curators made sure it could be played without damage. This sort of thing is not all that unusual, in fact. Some of the Library’s priceless instruments were donated with the stipulation that they remain functional & be played.”

Lizzo responds to the haters with a “cheeky” tweet:
