Lizzo took time off her sold out Australian tour to volunteer at a local food bank in Melbourne, Australia.
Lizzo thanked and greeted volunteers and packed hampers of food to send to areas affected by the Australian brushfires.
“100% that Foodbank!” Thanks again @lizzo for visiting our warehouse yesterday and chatting with our hardworking volunteers and staff who have been working tirelessly to provide food relief to bushfire affected communities. Add hamper packing to her list long of talents @fomoaus pic.twitter.com/llvd7dgRKw— Foodbank Victoria (@FoodbankVic) January 8, 2020
Lizzo also announced that she was taking a break from Twitter due to the harassment she receives on the platform. Following the body shaming comments from Jillian Micheals, Lizzo posted this message on her Instagram.
"At the 25 second mark I want you to take 5 deep breaths... in through the nose... out through the mouth.. today’s mantra is: This is my life. I have done nothing wrong. I forgive myself for thinking I was wrong in the first place. I deserve to be happy."
