Lizzo has called out her critics.

The musician, 35, shared a lengthy statement on her Instagram page Friday expressing that she's "getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet."

"All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it," the Grammy winner continued. "But I'm starting to feel like the world doesn't want me in it. I'm constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views ... being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look."

Lizzo added that her character has been "picked apart by people who don't know me and [are] disrespecting my name."

She ended her message by writing, "I didn't sign up for this s--t — I QUIT ✌🏾."

PEOPLE has reached out to Lizzo's rep for comment.

While the singer didn't reveal what prompted the statement, the post's comment section was filled with encouraging messages from her peers.

Latto wrote, "The ppl need u Lizzo. I remember U made me keep going when I wanted to quit before. Ur soul is SO pure f--- these ppl that don't know you! TEAM LIZZO 4L." Loni Love commented, "Girl don't let them win… stay off the internet.. hug up yo man… keep working."

The post was shared nearly two months after the singer's attempt to dismiss a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against her by three of her former background dancers was denied.

Last November, the performer got candid with her fans, explaining in an Instagram post that she was taking time to focus on herself.

"Hi. I'm working.. on music, myself, relationships with people and food, my anxiety, my body, my business, and my trust issues with the world.. but they are deep now, deeper than they've ever been. Xoxo," wrote Lizzo.

At the start of the new year, she revealed a new slimmed-down figure in an Instagram video as she modeled her shapewear brand Yitty's leggings and sports bras.

"We're putting ourselves first this year you guys. You don't have to wait to feel like the best version of yourself. New year, new me," said Lizzo in the clip.

On Sunday, she asked her fans to "give me a lil more time" before releasing new music.
