Did Lizzo Really Quit Music?

Simply put, yes, she did.

Why Did Lizzo Quit Music?

Here's where things get complicated. Lizzo claims she's quitting because she was tired of the harassment sent her way. There is indeed a lot of this since much of her reputation is built around her weight and physical appearance. But many people suspect it's something else.

Reactions to Lizzo's post were not particularly positive. Some believe she may be simply unable to handle the pressure after she performed at President Joe Biden's recent fundraiser, which placed her alongside political controversy.

Many more people have a different theory — that Lizzo is actually "playing the victim" in an attempt to regain sympathy amid the lawsuits and accusations levied against her.

What's The Lizzo Lawsuit About?

Lizzo is currently embroiled in several lawsuits, in which past employees of the pop star claim they were treated inappropriately by Lizzo in several different ways. The most famous lawsuit comes from three of her former backup dancers, who claim they were subjected to sexual harassment, a hostile work environment and even instances of fat shaming.

Lizzo allegedly made rude comments about her dancers' physical appearances, fired anyone who disagreed with her on small issues, made dancers endure 12-hour rehearsals, and coerced a dancer into inappropriately touching another woman at a club.

Allegedly, Lizzo even took her dancers to a nude cabaret bar in Amsterdam, where wildly inappropriate things were done with bananas, the likes of which can't even be mentioned here. Know Your Meme has a page on the controversy where you can read more about the lawsuit and allegations if you're curious.

Other social media users dislike Lizzo for performing at Biden's fundraiser, while a much larger portion of people dislike Lizzo for the allegations of sexual harassment and fat-shaming against her. In a rare occurrence, two opposite sides of the political spectrum have come together to agree on something — that they're okay with Lizzo's career coming to an end.
