Cardi B comes to Lizzo’s defense.
Just days after releasing her new collaboration, Rumors, Lizzo was criticized on social media. On Instagram Live, an emotional Lizzo burst into tears when she reached out to “the people who have mean things to say about you”. While she has learned to ignore the negativity, she admits that she is not immune to the hatred either.
“Most of the time it doesn’t hurt my feelings. I don’t care, ”she said as she wiped away the tears in her bathroom. “I just think that if I work so hard, my tolerance will be lower, my patience will be lower, I am more sensitive and it bothers me.”
When you stand up for yourself, they claim that you are problematic and sensitive. If you don’t, they’ll tear you apart until you cry like that. Whether you are thin, tall, or plastic, they will always try to put their insecurity on you. Remember, these are nerds looking at the popular table. https://t.co/jE5eJw8XP6

A grateful Lizzo thanked Cardi for her assistance. “Thanks @iamcardib – you are such a champion for all people. I love you so much, ”she tweeted.

In a recent interview with Apple Music, Lizzo celebrated Cardi for her authenticity. “Cardi B is the ultimate. For me, she always got it right. Everything she said, every way she reacted because you know why? That’s because she was true to herself all along, ”she said.
“She’s a groundbreaker. You cannot deny their ability. She is a superstar. She changed the game forever for many of us, many women. I don’t even think she realizes she’s doing it because I’m just trying to be successful. I am trying to get this money. I want to live a happy life. She just follows her heart. That’s what I love about her. “
