Lizzo has opened up on experiencing feelings of “sadness” recently during an emotional post on TikTok.
Appearing in a video on the platform last Saturday (May 8), the pop star said: “You know that part of sadness where you feel like a burden on everyone and annoying and nobody cares about you? Can we get rid of that part?
“It’s like, yo, I’m already sad. Got to add insult to injury that I have no one to talk to about it?’ It’s crazy. Like, why do we feel this way? Why do we feel this way when we get sad?”
Lizzo added: “I don’t want to feel this way anymore.

“I want to feel like I do have someone to talk to, people do care about me. I have love. I’m not alone. That’s what I want to feel, but I don’t feel like that.”
In a later post, the singer assured viewers that she was “feeling better” and thanked fans for their support following her first video message.
“I had a really rough night and a very emotional morning just thinking about my relationships and life,” she explained. “You know how it is. It gets dark.”
She continued: “I’m definitely glad I reached out in any way I could, and TikTok was one of those ways. To feel received and seen and heard really, really helped me. I’m not crying anymore.
“Thank you so much again. I love you guys. And if you’re going through things, just know you’re not alone. You’re definitely not. And I love you.”
Lizzo has previously spoken about dealing with anxiety, which she said “sometimes fuels who I am as a performer and who I am as an artist”.
