Demi Lovato is once again speaking out, slamming her rival Taylor Swift -- for slamming Katy Perry. Is this the pot calling the kettle black? Probably -- but we're definitely appreciating all the anti-Tay comments!
In a new interview with Glamour magazine, the "Confident" singer basically said that Tay wasn't a real feminist.
Glamour's Emily Mahaney asked, "You’ve said before, in regard to Taylor Swift, 'Don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work.' How do you see yourself doing the work?"
The 24-year-old replied:
- "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. And I think every woman does her part in some way. But 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."
Demi also tore down the "squad" in the Glamour interview, noting that the skinny ladies were all a specific (very slim) size. "It’s not realistic," Wilmer Valderrama's ex told the mag.
The singer went on saying, "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."
Previously, Demi came down on T-Swift in February after the Grammy winner donated $25K to Kesha during her sexual assault case against Dr. Luke. Demi criticized Taylor for throwing money at the problem instead taking "something to Capitol Hill."
She also made sure to tweet how much she loved Kim Kardashian amid the T-Swizzle/Kimye dispute.
