Lizzo - 'Grrrls'

From Taylor Swift, Lizzo to 28-time Grammy winner Beyonce Knowles, these are musical artists who have been forced to change their song lyrics after earning backlash on the Internet.

AceShowbiz - Also creating an uproar with her song was Lizzo. The Grammy Award-winning artist recently caught heat for the use of "ableist slur" on "GRRRLS". In the original opening verse, she sang, "Hold my bag, b***h/ Hold my bag/ Do you see this s**t?/ I'm a spaz/ I'm about to knock somebody out/ Yo, where my best friend?/ She the only one I know to talk me off the deep end."

Having noticed the backlash against her, Lizzo vowed to do better. "It's been brought to my attention that there is a harmful word in my new song 'GRRRLS'. Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote derogatory language," she declared on Instagam. "I'm proud to say there's a new version of GRRRLS with a lyric change. This is the result of me listening and taking action. As an influential artist I'm dedicated to being part of the change I've been waiting to see in the world. Xoxo, Lizzo."
