Sure, it's not every day we get to see someone play the flute while twerking, but Lizzo most certainly can, and she just defended her talents in a new video message.
Just last month, Lizzo shared a live clip of her hitting a flute solo and seamlessly hopping back into choreography for "Bye Bitch," and then shared a recording of the track on SoundCloud.
I PUT THE SONG UP ON SOUNDCLOUD FOR YA'LL — IT WAS GONNA BE AN UNRELEASED TRACK BUT WHEW YA'LL BLEW THIS SHIT UP! https://t.co/wlY0HLlzdr THANK YOU— |L I Z Z O| (@lizzo) October 26, 2018
Most of the response was positive.

But it seems Lizzo has received a lot of hate and disbelief, since she finally decided to address naysayers in a video earlier today. In the clip, she explains that people have been doubting that she's a classically trained floutist or claiming that her live videos are fake — and then tells them to "shut the fuck up."
She then gives viewers a step-by-step tutorial on how to assemble her flute (named Sasha Flute, of course) and then plays them her favourite note: F. Presumably it stands for, "Fuck y'all."
Watch the hilarious clap back below.
PSA for the weirdos that think I have the TIME to fabricate a flute back-story, RENT a flute to tour with and PRETEND to play. 🙄 Bitch, I'm a full time artist. I been on this flute shit, read my old interviews ho! Enjoy this F natural🖕🏾 pic.twitter.com/LUiCWDm0aR— |L I Z Z O| (@lizzo) November 12, 2018
