Lizzo is not dead, the singer is alive and well

The news about Lizzo surfaced because of a hoax on the internet Article. Headlined “Lizzo Dead Aged 31,” the short article said it was “breaking news.”

The excerpt reads: “Hit artist Lizzo has died at the age of 31. She rose to fame by creating songs like “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell.” She dies of a heart attack in her sleep. Doctors say she had a problem in her bones for a while. She was deficient in calcium and they gave her pills to relieve the pain and they said that caused the heart attack. In love and memory of the beloved Lizzo, may she rest in peace.”

However, the singer is still alive and well as of 2023. The fake news report is created on a prank website that gives users the freedom to come up with any headline and use it to confuse their friends.

What is the singer doing these days?

Lizzo recently got into trouble after some of her backup dancers filed a lawsuit against her alleging a toxic work environment and sexual harassment.

However, the singer quickly broke her silence on Instagram, criticizing those comments. In her post, she said, “I’m not here to be seen as a victim, but I also know I’m not the villain that people and the media have made me out to be these days.”

She ended the post by saying, “I’m hurt, but I won’t let it eclipse the good work I’ve done in the world.” For now, it looks like there may be Singer taking a social media break.
