According to SZA, after revealing to an audience that her ex blocked her, his father lit up her phone to share his thoughts. She told Elle during a recent interview, "My ex's father just texted me and was like, 'My son is really hurt about what you said about him to the crowd.'" The artist went on to explain, "You don't get to block me on everything. Tell our mutual friends terrible things about me like I'm a monster, or whatever the case may be. And then I don't get to speak my piece in my way. You go do your healing and I'll do mine."

"He's not here 'cause I'm blocked on everything," she said during the Portland, OR "SOS tour" stop. Before performing "Nobody Gets Me," she stated, "This one is extra sad." She revealed that she "did write ['Nobody Gets Me'] about the person that lives here." She went on to say, "F***. Being blocked on everything is so f***ing hard." A clip of her statements was later shared by a fan on TikTok.

In the interview, SZA went on to reveal that her career is centered around "proving points to [herself]." She explained, “that’s what all this is about, really. I do music to prove that I have value to myself. Because what else am I going to do, in terms of how I help people? Me being whoever I’m led to be on this journey must be part of the work ‘cause it’s really hard emotionally....My prayer is to see myself the way God sees me. Like, ‘Father, help me know my value and trust that I’m valuable, and that I am who You say I am.’”

SZA announced her "SOS tour" in December of last year, revealing a slew a dates across the U.S. Last month, she added more dates to the tour, including performances in Europe and various additional stops in the U.S.
