Truth Hurts… but the truth shall set you free.

A post shared by Lizzo (@lizzobeeating) on has the latest from Lizzo who wrote via social media “That Song Is My Life” but just because the song is relatable to Lizzo doesn’t mean that Justin and Jeremiah Raisen didn’t help write the song.

Justin wrote:

The last thing we want to do is throw any negativity toward Lizzo’s momentum and movement as a cultural figure. If we believe in what she’s preaching, believing in ourselves & our own voices is something we thought she’d understand.

Of course, “The Cuz I Love You” singer has finally responded to the allegations that have been circling the web. Lizzo is now sharing her side of the story on social media making it clear that her song was based on a meme she saw that inspired her to write the song.

Lizzo said:

The men who now claim a piece of ‘Truth Hurts’ did not help me write any part of the song. They had nothing to do with the line or how I chose to sing it. There was no one in the room when I wrote Truth Hurts, except me, Ricky Reed, and my tears. That song is my life and its words are my truth.

She’s shared her “success” with the creator of the tweet and that’s it.
