Demi Lovato Slams Meghan Trainor After Eating Disorder Remarks

Aww, Demi!
Watch a 5-year-old propose to Demi on stage.
Meghan Trainor, whose empowering “All About That Bass” is still holding steady at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight about, among other things, her lifelong struggle with weight.

Cue Demi Lovato — unofficial eating disorder spokeswoman — who was not happy with Trainor’s remarks.

“I grew up a chubby girl,” Trainor said to ET. “My parents loved us, they fed us whatever we wanted.” She shared an anecdote about her crush telling her, “You’d be like real hot if you were 10 pounds lighter.” Trainor says her reaction was to cry and “not eat for the rest of the day.”

Then, Trainor said the following:

“I wasn’t strong enough to have an eating disorder. I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that’s not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, ‘Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, immediately.'”

Lovato, who has been very vocal about her struggles with eating disorders, was not happy with the implication that it takes “strength” to have an one. She responded in a series of tweets:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well said, Miss Lovato. Well said.
