Despite producing undeniably incredible music and taking to the red carpet in outfits that signal her confidence and style, Lizzo constantly comes face to face with abuse, particularly on social media.
She recently shared on TikTok that she was going through "that part of sadness", which has left her feeling "annoying" to others and as though "nobody cares" about her.

Following that post, the singer shared that she felt better following a self-care routine.
