UPDATED 4:01 p.m. ET: SZA has announced she’s deleted her TikTok account for Mental Health Awareness Month. “I encourage everyone to delete anything anyone and everything that doesn’t serve you. Bless,” she wrote in an Instagram Stories post. It followed an earlier IG Stories post that included the message, “Get off the internet. The internet is demonic.”

SZA is fed up with invasive fans who only expect her to release music and not live her life.
The singer sent out a volley of tweets on that were seemingly responding to a fan who had reposted an old message where SZA said she wouldn’t be going outside until her album was done.
SZA began her thread by emphasizing how her love for music is the only reason she does go outside because people are so quick to “suck the joy and life out of everything.”
“I swear to God if I didn’t accidentally fall in love w music .. I would NEVER EVER COME OUTSIDE,” she wrote. “Y’all suck the joy and life out of EVERYTHING. Thank God for purpose cause Outside of art it’s fuck y’all . Now run w that .”
The TDE artist went on to cite one of her recent songs, “I Hate U,” and clarifies it was a message for everyone, not just men.
She also added that when she does finally drop new music, it will be “to free my motherfucking self,” not to please the masses who don’t allow her to enjoy life.
Fans have been impatient for a new SZA album. Her debut full-length Ctrl dropped in 2017, and despite several singles and appearances on other artists’ projects, many fans will not be satisfied until she drops her next record.
