Lizzo‘s had enough!
The chart-topping diva has been swarmed with criticism after multiple singer-songwriters have called her out for allegedly using their concepts, lines, or other intellectual property for her inaugural #1 single, ‘Truth Hurts’ (click here to read more).
Having kept mum for over a week since the allegations first topped headlines, now the 31-year-old is finally speaking out. Look inside to see what she said:
“The men who now claim a piece of Truth Hurts did not help me write any part of the song,” Lizzo wrote. “They had nothing to do with the line or how I chose to sing it.”
See what else she took to Twitter to say:
The comments come just a day after her lawyer, Cynthia Arato, issued a statement to say:
“The Raisens are not writers of ‘Truth Hurts.’ They did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago. Although it has become all too commonplace for successful artists to be subjected to these type of opportunistic claims, it is nevertheless disappointing that after all of her hard work, Lizzo has to respond to this specious claim.”
Although she’s defended ‘Truth,’ as of time reported Lizzo’s not responded to claims her song, ‘Juice,’ borrows elements from 90’s House sensation CeCe Peniston‘s signature tune, ‘Finally.’
