Demi Lovato Slams Taylor Swift’s Squad and Explains Why She Had to End Things with Wilmer Valderrama

Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift may have been friendly in the past, but now Lovato’s got a bone to pick with the 1989 singer and her whole squad.

In a recent interview with Glamour, Lovato opened up about her infamous tweet where she called Swift out for using feminism for her brand but not doing any work for the cause. Lovato said she thinks just talking about feminism, something Swift rarely does, helps the cause and even took it a step further insinuating Swift’s squad isn’t feminist enough.

“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,” she said. “It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real. It’s not realistic.”

Lovato went on to use Swift’s music video for “Bad Blood” as even more proof that Swift and her squad are not as feminist as they’d like people to believe. “And 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.

It didn’t take long for Lovato to receive major backlash for her comments, so early this morning she took to Twitter to respond saying she wouldn’t apologize and that people shouldn’t care about what she says anyway.



While most fans are concerned about the feud brewing between Lovato and Swift, in the interview the singer also revealed why she and longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama had to call things off.

“I think it’s healthy to be able to start over with someone else. Being sick was always a part of my relationship with him; I always had something wrong with me. I needed to let go of that,” she revealed. “It was hard to depart from somebody who saw everything, but it may be nice to start fresh with somebody. Because that person I was when I was a lot younger is not who I am today.”
