Lizzo gave one of the best performances of the night at the 2019 BET Awards. Her flute rendition of ‘Truth Hurts’ had everyone in the audience, including Rihanna jamming out.
The Minnesota native has been setting the music world on fire with her sophomore album, Cuz I Love You and fast-growing social media presence. Based on her BET performance, it is easy to see why everyone is talking about the talented beauty.
She appeared on stage atop a giant wedding cake, dressed as one of the most gorgeous brides ever. The voluptuous singer sang her heart out during the spirited performance. Lizzo even twerked showing off the tassels on her booty!
There was so much love for the singer when she got done putting on the show of a lifetime it is hard to imagine Lizzo feeling anything other than pure joy and happiness.
However, a day before her show-stopping performance, the 31-year-old shocked fans by sharing on Instagram, she battles depression.
“I’m depressed, and there’s no one I can talk to because there’s nothing anyone can do about it. Life hurts,” shared the woman who sings all about body positivity.
In a series of emotional and powerful Instagram posts, Lizzo got candid about her struggle. She explains despite her newfound stardom, there is this constant feeling of being “ghosted by the world.” Lizzo also revealed when she loves, she loves hard, and it can lead to her depression episodes.
A critical aspect of her post is that Lizza knows the low moments will pass. It doesn’t mean getting through the depression isn’t difficult. She has just learned the dark times’ end. The knowledge the moment will pass and not last forever, has helped the singer as she continues to have issues with sadness.

I learned in the last 24hrs that being emotionally honest can save your life. Reaching out may be hard but as soon as I did it, I was immediately covered in love. I used to think of sadness as a constant with fleeting moments of joy in between… but it’s a wave 🌊joy🌊sadness🌊joy🌊sadness🌊 and my sadness can be as temporary as my joy. I went on live to have a discussion about triggers. My triggers are: rejection and inadequacy. But I love that I’m more emotionally honest lately. I love that I can use my sadness constructively in real time for gratitude. What triggers your sadness? What do you do when those buttons are pushed? What do you love about yourself in those moments of darkness?
