Charli XCX has revealed she's stepping back from Twitter for a while due to mental health reasons.

After revealing that A. G. Cook has the files for a "Beg For You" remix, Charli XCX shared a statement on Twitter revealing that she feels "like I can't do anything right at the moment."

"I've noticed lately that a few people seem quite angry at me - for the choices of songs I've chosen to release, for the way I've decided to roll out my campaign, for the things I need to do to fund what will be the greatest tour I've ever done, for things I say, things I do etc.," Charli XCX wrote. "I've been grappling quite a lot with my mental health the past few months and obviously it makes negativity and criticism harder to handle when I come across it."

Charli XCX added, "In the meantime I'm thinking of just drafting tweets from afar when I feel like saying something and having someone else post them, just for a little while, because I can't handle it here right now."

On top of fans writing kind responses, frequent collaborator Caroline Polachek wrote, "you don’t owe anybody anything. your life is yours for the living and we’re so grateful for all the wild vivid energy you put out into this world. love you charli fuck the haters."

Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama's "Beg For You" video is expected to arrive later today. Charli XCX's CRASH album will follow on 18 March, and is available to pre-order now.
