Truth Hurts by Lizzo; Lyrics

Why men great ’til they gotta be great?

Woo

I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch

Even when I’m crying crazy

Yeah, I got boy problems, that’s the human in me

Bling bling, then I solve ’em, that’s the goddess in me

You coulda had a bad bitch, non-committal

Help you with your career just a little

You’re ‘posed to hold me down, but you’re holding me back

And that’s the sound of me not calling you back

Why men great ’til they gotta be great?

Don’t text me, tell it straight to my face

Best friend sat me down in the salon chair

Shampoo press, get you out of my hair

Fresh photos with the bomb lighting

New man on the Minnesota Vikings

Truth hurts, needed something more exciting

Bom bom bi dom bi dum bum bay

You tried to break my heart?

More Truth Hurts

Oh, that breaks my heart

That you thought you ever had it

No, you ain’t from the start

Hey, I’m glad you’re back with your bitch

I mean who would wanna hide this?

I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever be your side chick

and I put the sing in single

Ain’t worried ’bout a ring on my finger

So you can tell your friend, “shoot your shot” when you see ’em

It’s OK, he already in my DMs

Why men great ’til they gotta be great?

Don’t text me, tell it straight to my face

Best friend sat me down in the salon chair

Shampoo press, get you out of my hair

Fresh photos with the bomb lighting

New man on the Minnesota Vikings

Truth hurts, needed something more exciting

Bom bom bi bom bi dum bum bay

I’ ma hit you back in a minute

I don’t play tag, bitch, I been it

We don’t f$#$ with lies, we don’t do goodbyes

We just keep it pushing like aye yi yi

I’ ma hit you back in a minute

I don’t play tag, bitch, I been it

We don’t f$#$ with lies, we don’t do goodbyes

We just keep it pushing like aye yi yi

Why men great ’til they gotta be great?

Don’t text me, tell it straight to my face

Best friend sat me down in the salon chair

Shampoo press, get you out of my hair

Fresh photos with the bomb lighting

New man on the Minnesota Vikings

Truth hurts, needed something more exciting

Bom bom bi bom bi dum bum bay

Quotes by Lizzo

1.) Reaching out may be hard but as soon as I did it, I was immediately covered in love. I used to think of sadness as a constant with fleeting moments of joy in between . . . but it’s a wave. My triggers are: rejection and inadequacy. But I love that I’m more emotionally honest lately. I love that I can use my sadness constructively in real-time for gratitude.

2.) I also know that there’s a stigma around therapy in the black community, and there had been for a long time, especially for black women. We’re so strong, because of all that we have been put through, and how little we’re sought after and looked out for. So, black women end up like, ‘I got it. I don’t need help. I’m handling this. That’s why I tried to be strong for so long.

On her career and artistry

3.) It took me a long time to get to this point in my career, but it also took me a long time to get to this point in my life where I can actually appreciate the present moment. It all kind of synced up at the same time. So everything that happens, I’m just getting the full celebration of it.

4.) I think I have to figure out how to be satisfied so I don’t become this insatiable artist that is never happy. My definition of success has never been pertaining to fame or celebrity or any type of clout or look. It has been more; can I sell out a tour? Can I play Madison Square Garden? Is my music going to help shape the culture and help change people’s lives for the better? I’d be happy with this, but I know that there’s a lot more to come.

Lizzo Sayings

5.) This music is medicine and I’m trying to get it to my sisters. It’s so exciting to me to finally be at a level where I have exposure to my Black sisters, my big sisters, my Black trans sisters. It’s not about being poppin’. And, it’s not about being famous or fashion. It’s about being better and making sure that this world can hear us and respect us.

6.) I’m going to become iconic musically. I don’t mean in the way all the kids are using it now for everything like, ‘Oh, I took a nap. How iconic.’ Even though it’s valid; naps are iconic. I mean iconic like an icon. Like when you see the go sign or the stop sign, you know what it means.

Lizzo’s Movement

7.) My movement is for everybody. My movement celebrates diversity. It’s all about inclusion. It’s all about getting our flowers and giving each person their own space to be an individual and speak up for that individuality.

8.) I’m really trying to bridge the gap between all of our movements. Allyship is so much deeper than just being cool with someone’s life or cool with someone’s existence, it’s about reaching out a hand and pulling them up and making sure that y’all are walking side by side. And that’s what I’m trying to do.

9.) The space I’m occupying isn’t just for me. It’s for all the big black girls in the future who just want to be seen.

10.) I just felt like I was throwing music into the world and not even making a splash. A tree was falling in the forest and not making a sound, you know?

On Popularity and Confidence

11.) I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love.

12.) Who I am, and the essence of me, and the things that I choose to do as a grown-ass woman, can inspire you to do the same. They don’t have to be like me – you need to be like you, and never ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself

13.) You are capable. You deserve to feel good as hell, and you deserve to find that. And as proud as you are of me, I’m proud of you. I’m really proud of you – because life comes at you fast, and sometimes it can be so hard, but if I can make it, I know you can make it. We can make it together.
