Thanks to her mega tunes, excellent Instagrams and brilliant approach to fitness, we're so glad Lizzo came into our lives. But the singer took to TikTok to open up about the downsides of fame, while getting a little emotional.

The 32-year-old has always been open and honest with her fans. In a recent Vogue interview, she explained why she was stepping away from the body-positivity movement, while also wanting to still encourage self-love.

And now, she's candidly opened up to her 1million TikTok followers about how she still struggles with internal battles, and that fame and money doesn't directly equate to happiness. "You can be the coolest, most richest person ever and it doesn't buy you f**king happiness," she began.

"And if that s**t is f**ked up, you're just going to have even more magnified f**ked up s**t in situations where it doesn't even seem valid or like you're even like supposed to feel that way and so it f**ks you up even more because you feel super f**king ungrateful."

As tears filled her eyes, she continued, "I'm just telling everyone now, anyone who has internal issues or has like any type of self problems that they need to work out, work out now because money, fame, or success or even getting older doesn't really fix that s**t."

She added, "You need to just do it. Do the inner work, because no matter where you are if you don't, it's going to haunt you like a f**king ghost. I'm working on it too and today is just not a good day. It's okay to not have a good day even when it seems like you should."
