Everyone has bad days.
Lizzo took to TikTok over the weekend to share a very emotional video in which she said she feels like a "burden on everyone," and it's safe to say fans had a strong reaction to the clip...
Melissa Viviane Jefferson graced our world in Detroit in 1988.
But we know her best as Lizzo.
Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is a total masterpiece.
But it's not just the brilliant music that she makes that has garnered Lizzo such a legion of fans.
There's so much more to the star.
For one thing, she's totally unique.
Which other plus-size, dance-trained, hip-hop artist plays the flute in almost all of her songs?
Truly, Lizzo is one of a kind.
But what's even more important than her talent?
via: GettyIt's gotta be Lizzo's incredible message. Her lyrics are all designed to inspire self-love and confidence - particularly in young women. In a world of problematic messages, she's a real force for good.
Lizzo has dominated the stage for several years now.
Gaining some pretty high profile fans along the way.
At the BET Awards back 2019, there was one audience member who was truly losing her mind over Lizzo's performance...
That’s it... that’s the tweet 🤷🏾♀️ https://t.co/ZgbPMcXwJw— Feelin Good As Hell (@Feelin Good As Hell)1561353358.0
And at the MTV Video Music Awards that same year, Lizzo made even more famous fans.

And late in 2019, Lizzo was cemented as a true icon.
The star was named as TIME's Entertainer of the Year.
She was recognized for her trailblazing message of body positivity, advocacy for self-love, and her "relentlessly positive and impossibly catchy" sound.
It's a truly impressive achievement.
Lizzo opened up to the magazine about being an advocate for body positivity:
And even now, the world's love for Lizzo continues to grow with her success.
Last year saw her nominated for eleven awards at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, and winning one for Top Song Sales Artist.
The same year, she also performed a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House...
The same place she had previously performed as a young flute player.
But it seems life isn't all positivity for Lizzo.
As the singer has been very open with how she has been feeling recently.
Taking to TikTok over the weekend, Lizzo broke down in tears while admitting that she was feeling like a "burden on everyone."
And since then, messages of support have been pouring in...
"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?" Lizzo said as the video began.
"It's like, yo, I'm already sad. Could it add insult to injury that I have no one to talk to about it?"
Wiping away tears, she added: "It's crazy."
"Why we feel this way when we get sad? 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. Okay this is embarrassing."
After posting the video messages of support came flooding in and a short while later, Lizzo posted an update on how she was feeling.
Responding to a fan, Lizzo said she was "feeling better."
"I had a really rough night and a very emotional morning just thinking about my relationships and life. You know how it is. It gets dark," she said.
"I'm definitely glad I reached out in any way that 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."

"If you're going through things, just know you're not alone and I love you," she concluded.
She also shared with fans what she did to feel better.
"Took a bath, talked to my therapist, talked to my medium, breathed, focused on gratitude, tricked my dopamine levels by getting excited about something that's happening in the future, ate a cinnamon roll, hot chocolate and now I'm in bed," she said.
"Journaled a little bit, read a little bit."
