Recently, the talented flute player hopped on to Instagram to deliver a message to her supporters. In the video, Lizzo laid out rules for fans who wanted to approach her for the foreseeable future.

“I don’t care who you are,” Lizzo began in her Instagram live video. “You could be the nicest person. You could be vaccinated. You could be quadruple vaccinated. If you see me, please give me six feet. This s— is coming back. COVID. And people being real sloppy with personal space. It’s not you! It’s me. I’m not trying to catch nothing. I don’t even want to catch feelings, b—-. You think I’m trying to catch COVID?”

“Don’t think, ‘Oh she’s a celebrity, she thinks she’s all that.’ It’s not that booboo,” Lizzo promised. “You know what I think I am? Healthy. You know what I think I am? COVID-free. You know what I think I am? Full of vitamin D and vitamin C. You know what I think I am? Safe for my family and friends to be around, and my coworkers and teammates. That’s who I think I am.”

Finally, Lizzo urged fans not to violate her personal space when they approached her on the streets and warned them of what could potentially happen if they didn’t heed her warning. “So if y’all see me in the street, come up on me, want to hug, want to shake my hand, want to kiss me on the cheek, don’t do it,” she stated. “Don’t do it. Cause I ain’t trying to catch this motherf—— virus that’s coming back. It got way too motherf—— close. It got way…it got this motherf—— close. And I don’t play that. I’m about to be rude. I’m nice, you know what I’m saying? But this virus gonna have me acting up, I’m gonna be mean.”
