Lizzo shared that anti-genocide activists have helped pull her out of a nine-month depression in a candid new social media post.

The singer, 36 — who was sued by three of her ex-dancers who accused her of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment last year — took to her Instagram with a video titled ‘Life update’ on Monday.

In it, she shared that she’s been battling with depression for the past nine months, but has been ‘activated’ by those fighting for Palestine among other places.

‘I just want to take a second and give a personal thank you to all of the activists who have been working tirelessly to help the liberation and the freedom of the people who have been genocided (sic) all over the world,’ she shared.

‘On a personal note, you have activated me. I was in a deep dark depression. I had some mental heath crises and episodes over the last nine months. And I was not present,’ she added. 

Lizzo, 36, shared that anti-genocide activists have helped pull her out of a nine-month depression in a candid new post

‘Between the loss I experienced in my personal life and the state of the world I have been rendered into an emotional state where I cannot process or handle anything. It was very dark.’

‘I’m not saying this to make excuses, nor do I want sympathy. I just haven’t been able to be transparent with y’all in a long time. And this has been weighing on my heart to share with y’all.’

‘The people in my life who love and care about me, they helped me get out of this dark space and I appreciate them. Kind words from people on the internet. They really motivated me. But also the activism that I’ve been seeing has been extremely motivating.’

She went on: ‘Your work is not in vain. You have helped so many people. You have saved literal lives.’ 

‘As someone who has worked closely with activists, I know the toll it can take on your mental and your physical, and it can feel thankless,’ Lizzo stated.

The star shouted out those who are fighting for ‘Palestine, Sudan, and the Congo’ adding, ‘Y’all have really motivated me to get my a** up and get back to who I am.’

‘I also want to take this moment and thank all of the anti-genocide, anti-war protests that have been happening at collage campuses,’ she shared, seemingly in reference to the anti-Israel protests currently sweeping through American university campuses.

Last month the Grammy winner clarified that she has no plans to stop making music after sharing an alarming Instagram post, in which she declared she 'quit' due to nonstop criticism; seen at the Met Gala in NYC on May 6

‘What these students have done and are doing is so deeply important. I can’t even express it in one video.’ 

She went on to say, ‘Thank you to the people who were genuinely concerned about me. You saw my face. But nobody was home. I was not present at all. I’ve been gone and I don’t like how that feels.’

Lizzo also shared that she’s been reaching out to activists to see how she can help.

Last month the Grammy winner clarified that she has no plans to stop making music after sharing an alarming Instagram post, in which she declared she ‘quit’ due to nonstop criticism.

After admitting that she was ‘tired of getting dragged by everyone’ over her looks, the superstar jumped on social media to clarify what she meant by saying she ‘quit.’

In the video, she appeared on camera as she told fans that she actually meant that she ‘quit giving any negative energy attention.’

‘What I’m not going to quit is the joy of my life, which is making music, which is connecting to people, ’cause I know I’m not alone,’ the performer (born Melissa Viviane Jefferson) assured fans.

She continued: ‘In no way, shape or form, am I the only person, who is experiencing that negative voice that seems to be louder than the positive.’

The Truth Hurts hitmaker went on to say that if she gave even just ‘one person the inspiration or motivation to stand up for themselves’ against negative people or comments than she was doing ‘more than’ she ‘could have hoped for.’

In her original post she told her followers that she was ‘getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet.’

After the lawsuit came to light, Lizzo broke her silence on Instagram and stated the claims were both 'unbelievable' and 'outrageous; Lizzo seen in 2023

‘All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it,’ she wrote in a statement. ”But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me in it.’

Lizzo went on to vent that it was frustrating to ‘constantly’ be ‘up against lies’ being told about her ‘for clout & views’ and ‘being the butt of the joke every single time because’ of her appearance.

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

Her initial post about quitting came 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.

After the lawsuit came to light, Lizzo broke her silence on Instagram and stated the claims were both ‘unbelievable’ and ‘outrageous.

The lawsuit is still currently ongoing.
