“NO MORE FEVER THANK U GOD,” she composed.
“Thanks’ around for the kind words and prayers that helped.”
Lizzo’s health scare came to the singer after a couple of days, as she courted controversy.
The singer, who has been an advocate for body image, defended her outfit option.
“I got up and I simply did what I always do,” she informed CBS This Morning on Dec. 12. “Anybody who knows me understands this is the way I have been.
This is the way I love to dress. I had all of the layers down there. Therefore it was flesh to a chair, in spite of popular belief. … but um, it [her ass ] was outside.”
Lizzo pointed out that she does and it had taken a while to fall in love, she doesn’t need anyone taking that delight.
“You know how much time it took me to fall in love with this figure?” She explained.
“My bum was my least favorite thing about myself and what I learned to appreciate it. And it is what everyone.
Be you. Can you. Do not let anyone steal your pleasure, notably not the world wide web.”
SNL will return on NBC.
