The most iconic line in "Truth Hurts" originated with a tweet, and now that writer appears to be getting her due.
Producers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen recently accused Lizzo of plagiarizing portions of the song, which is currently enjoying its seventh nonconsecutive week atop the Billboard charts, from a demo the three of them wrote in 2017. On Wednesday, Lizzo denied those allegations on Instagram, claiming that only she and producer Ricky Reed were present when she wrote the track.
"The men who now claim a piece of Truth Hurts did not help me write any part of the song," she wrote.
