Whoa! Demi Lovato first dissed Taylor Swift earlier this year in Feb. 2016, when Demi wasn’t impressed by Tay’s donation to Kesha to support her fight against Dr. Luke. But then, on May 17 Demi revealed that she still doesn’t like her, or consider her a feminist! Here’s more.
Demi Lovato, 23, is an absolute savage! Once again, she’s admitting that she “doesn’t get along with” Taylor Swift, 26. Not only that, but she calls into question Tay’s right to call herself a feminist. Yikes! See her full explanation of her relationship with the 1989 star, right here.
Demi and Tay used to be buddies, but ever since Feb. 2016, there’s been bad blood between them. On May 17, Demi did a new interview explaining that not only does she not like Taylor, but that she doesn’t care to make amends with her at all.
When asked about her beef with the Taylor, she said “there are women that I don’t get along with, and that’s fine,” Demi told Refinery29 . “My thing is, don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work. I have an immense amount of respect for women like Lena Dunham … or Beyoncé, who make amazing political statements through their work.”
Demi had argued in Feb. that Taylor took the wrong approach to helping Kesha fight Dr. Luke after the songstress alleged that he raped her. Taylor gave Kesha $250,000 to help with her lawsuit, but Demi thought it was more important to be vocal about her support, saying “take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed.”
She defended the statement on May 17, saying “I’m not going to stop saying what I believe in. I have no problem standing up for myself.” Clearly, Demi isn’t scared of burning a few bridges if that’s how she feels, but it’s crazy that she’s so upfront about not liking the leader of the most powerful squad in music!
