Demi Lovato ‘tak­ing a break’ af­ter slam­ming Tay­lor Swift

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Demi Lovato has an­nounced that she’s “tak­ing a break from mu­sic and the spot­light” in the wake of crit­i­cism of her com­ments about Tay­lor Swift.

In a re­cent in­ter­view with Glamour Mag­a­zine, Lovato sug­gested Swift could do more for fem­i­nism “if they’re go­ing to claim that as part of their brand.” She also ref­er­enced Swift’s “girl squad” say­ing, “I don’t see any­body in any sort of squad that has a nor­mal body.”

Lovato brought up Swift’s song “Bad Blood,” which many have spec­u­lated is a diss at Katy Perry. She says the song is “not women’s em­pow­er­ment.”

Lovato said on Twit­ter Tues­day that she’s not apol­o­giz­ing for the re­marks, adding that she’s ex­cited for 2017 and “not meant for this busi­ness and the me­dia.”

This isn’t the first time the for­mer Dis­ney Chan­nel star has an­nounced a break. Lovato in June posted she was leav­ing Twit­ter in re­sponse to neg­a­tive com­ments from other users, but she re­turned the next day.
