Welp! It’s safe to say Demi Lovato will not be in Taylor Swift’s ‘unrealistic’ squad any time soon. If ever. Not that Demi even wants to be. The 24-year-old singer just totally incinerated that bridge to the ground after teasing a fire earlier this year.
Last May, Demi tweeted “don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work” seemingly in reference to Taylor who’s known for her female empowering brand and girl squad full of models. Now Demi is doubling down on the scathing criticism in a new issue of Glamour. Throwing the last remaining f*cks out the window, Demi slams Taylor for being fake.
I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand,” the outspoken “Body Say” singer says. “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.
Demi is very much serious about realistic body images. Just recently, she “thanks but no thanks” an artist who drew her as a slender mermaid, telling him on Instagram, “Is that how my boobs should look? It’s gorgeous but that’s not my body.” But back to Glamour, Demi also isn’t here for Taylor Swift’s Katy Perry slander. The country-turned-pop singer created an entire song with “Bad Blood” to slam Katy, a move not very girl power-y in Demi’s eyes.
I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment,” Demi said. “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.
