Lizzo is taking a break from Twitter.
The 31-year-old singer announced in a tweet Sunday that she is stepping away from the social media site due to “trolls.” “Yeah I can’t do this Twitter [expletive] no more.. too many trolls…” she wrote. “I’ll be back when I feel like it.”
Lizzo had clashed with a person in December who attributed her popularity to “an obesity epidemic in America.”
“I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love,” Lizzo responded. “The only person who needs to do better is you.”
“Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me,” she added. “Here’s the attention you ordered.”
Lizzo is nominated for eight awards at the 2020 Grammys, including Album of the Year for Cuz I Love You, released in April. The album includes the singles “Juice” and “Tempo.”
