Rolling Stone reported that Lizzo released a statement after the documentary announcement, she said: "Growing up I never dreamed I’d get to experience all of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I’m just getting started.

"From ‘Cuz I Love You to my dramatic world tour, losing and gaining love, and creating my new album Special, y’all get to see the amount of time, patience, blood, sweat and tears that went into this process," the singer continued.
