Demi Lovato Ripped Taylor Swift and She’s Not Sorry About It


demi-lovato-e1471962795238-1-650x429In a recent interview with GlamourDemi Lovato called out Taylor Swift for her feminism. Specifically, she accused her of claiming she’s a feminist, but not actually “doing the work” to be one.

When asked what Lovato does that’s different, she answered, “Just speaking out. I’m not afraid to talk about the fact that women get paid less than men in the United States and how unfair that is. Talking about it at all is doing the work.” She continued, “I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand. To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.”

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out who “certain people” is referring to. She added “I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out.”

Swift has great fans, and a lot of them. They weren’t happy, and they spoke out on Twitter.

Sorry, but Demi isn’t sorry. She responded with Tweets of her own.

Lovato isn’t the first celebrity to bring Swift to task. Earlier this year, Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellesario blasted her for what she called “false feminism.”
