Lizzo quit the music industry in a shock post on Friday.

The Juice hitmaker, 35, shocked fans as she revealed she was putting fame behind her as she was ‘tired of getting dragged by everyone’ and being criticized ‘because of how I look’ in an Instagram announcement. 

She wrote: ‘I’m getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet.

‘All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it.

‘But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me in it.

‘I’m constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views… being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look.

‘My character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name 

‘I didn’t sign up for this s**t. I quit.’

Social media users jumped to the comment to share their thoughts on the shock move, with one fan penning, ‘You better not!!!!’

Another simply wrote, ‘Love u. Don’t quit,’ while one follower added, ‘Wait is this an April Fools set up.’ 

One fan typed, ‘We need you. I need you. ladies need you. the world needs you. We love you. Not everyone likes me and guess what I Don’t Care!!’ 

An Instagram user penned, ‘Lizzo is having her Brittney moment,’ while one begged, ‘Don’t quit! Never give up!’ 

Another follower added, ‘Gurl you can’t quit keeping showing that haters who’s boss! You’re untouchably talented and we are grateful you share it with us all.’ 

‘We love you Lizzo fr. Take some time and take a break. Your music has gotten me thru the hardest of hard times. Keep your head up baby girl,’ a fan wrote. 

Her post comes just one day after the lawyer for Lizzo’s three ex-dancers that previously sued her for sexual harassment slammed ‘shameful’ President Joe Biden for letting her perform at his $25million Radio City fundraiser on Thursday. 

Last year in August, the music artist was notably sued by three of her ex-dancers – Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez – who accused her of sexual harassment as well as creating a hostile work environment. 

'My character being picked apart by people who don't know me and disrespecting my name. I didn't sign up for this s**t. I quit,' she added

Their lawyer, Ron Zambrano, told NewsNation, ‘It’s shameful that Lizzo would be chosen to headline an event like this amid such egregious allegations.’ 

‘Without getting into the politics, I can’t imagine why anyone would want Lizzo representing them in any way given her reprehensible behavior. It’s just a terrible look.’ 

The ex-dancers had also accused Lizzo in the lawsuit filed in August of weight-shaming and claimed that they were forced to touch a nude performer while at a strip club in Amsterdam.
