Lizzo is one of the most social media-savvy artists out there. She is a plus-size singer, and as a result, she frequently faces body-shaming and ridicule.

Lizzo admitted that in 2021, a fan made a horrible remark about her appearance that made her cry. However, even though it shook her to the bones, she refuses to reveal what the terrible comment was.

The singer addressed allegations that her song “Grrrls” contains an ableist slur while speaking with Vanity Fair for an interview that was published on October 11th. The song, which is featured on her album Special, has the line, “Hold my bag, b####, hold my bag / Do you see this s###? I’m a spaz.”

The word “spaz,” which is a shortening of the word “spastic,” was questioned in the line. This term has its origins in the bullying of people with cerebral palsy in the United Kingdom in the 1980s.

The R&B singer had a Vanity Fair interview where she discussed her reason for writing it. “I’d never heard it used as a slur against disabled people, never ever. The music I make is in the business of feeling good and being authentic to me,” she said. “Using a slur is unauthentic to me, but I did not know it was a slur.”
