Lizzo performs at Made in America - Day 2  at Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Aug. 31, 2019 in Philadelphia.

Lizzo just delivered a stellar performance on the last episode of Saturday Night Live for this year and has a ton to look forward to in the next -- including the 2020 Grammy Awards, where she's the most-nominated artist -- so, no.

Lizzo's response was a swift, and accurate, 140-character lesson in self-defense: "I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love. The only person who needs to do better is you."
