Lizzo facing further criticism for ‘Truth Hurts’ TM bid



Lizzo has been accused of plagiarising a lyric from her hit song “Truth Hurts”
She sings “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch”.
The singer’s company applied to register “100% That Bitch” as a trademark covering merchandise and music.
UK musician Mina Lioness says that she came up with the lyric.

“what I cannot get over is how brazen Lizzo and her team have been in ignoring my whole presence. They’re doing it because they know I have no capital to address her,”
“Now everyone believes those were your words, when in fact they were mine. My creativity, my wit and my comedy.”

She cannot afford to take the issue to court.
She has called on Lizzo to “do the right thing” and credit her as a co-writer of the song.
Lizzo has said publicly that the lyrics were inspired by a meme she had seen on social media.
