Demi Lovato Defends Herself After Seemingly Calling Out Taylor Swift & Her Kesha Donation
“How the f*ck am I making this about myself? At least I’m talking about it. Not everyone has 250k to just give to people. Would love to but I didn’t grow up with money and def haven’t made as much as her. At least I speak up about sh*t that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7,” the 23-year-old entertainer wrote in a comment on a Taylor fan Instagram account. The account pointed out Demi‘s tweet about Taylor‘s $250,000 donation to Kesha after her legal battle with Dr Luke.
“There’s no ‘rivalry’ I just give more f*cks than other people and would rather start a dialogue ABOUT WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person,” Demi continued. “I didn’t shade Taylor. If you take it that way than[sic] fine. I’m just tired of seeing women use ‘women empowerment’ and ‘feminism’ to further brands without actually being the ones that have the uncomfortable conversations. I get shade and I don’t give a f*ck because someone has to be the one to take it. At least I’m getting my hands dirty.”
