"I'm getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet," Lizzo wrote. "All I want is to make music and make people happy, and help the world be a litter better than how I found it."

"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 and views...being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look."

Lizzo's cryptic message comes nearly two months after her attempt to dismiss a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against her by three of her former background dancers was denied.

But this isn't the first time Lizzo spoke candidly about taking time to herself. Last November, she shared this note on Instagram: "Hi. I’m working.. on music, myself, relationships with people and food, my anxiety, my body, my business, and my trust issues with the world.. but they are deep now, deeper than they’ve ever been. Xoxo."

And earlier this month, Lizzo gave fans an update on her self-love journey and thanked them for their patience: "I’m almost ready to be a normal human again… to be outside.. to love and trust people.. to try and make new friends… to go on live 👀… to sing and talk about my pain and joy… just give me a lil more time. Thank u for the patience."
