Lizzo has had an incredible year touring and selling out shows, becoming a household name, and getting nominated for multiple GRAMMYs. But she has not forgotten where she came from.

When a fan tweeted to her thanking her for being an inspiration, she responded and opened up about what it took for her to get to where she is at. The fan said,  “Dear @lizzo I can imagine all what you went through to get to this moment in music, but thank you for not giving up and becoming a true inspiration to women with big size and big dreams.”

Lizzo responded, “8 years of touring, giving out free tix to my undersold shows, sleepless nights in my car, losing my dad & giving up on music, playing shows for free beer & food w/ -32$ in my bank account, constantly writing songs, hearing ‘no’ but always saying ‘yes’ Glad I never gave up.”
