The 34-year-old musician said: “Growing up I never dreamed I’d get to experience all of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I’m just getting started.

“From ‘Cuz I Love You’ to my dramatic world tour, losing and gaining love, and creating my new album ‘Special’, y’all get to see the amount of time, patience, blood, sweat and tears that went into this process.

“It takes ten years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to keep going.”

The classically-trained flautist recently declared she is worthy of the “attention” she had garnered throughout her career as she had earned it.

She said: “I deserve the spotlight. I deserve the attention. I’m talented, I’m young, I’m hot, you know? And I’ve worked hard.”

Lizzo - whose real name is Melissa Jefferson - believes she had to “blaze a trail” for herself as there was no one like her on the music scene.
