Demi Lovato Explains Her Passion After Taylor Swift 'Shade'

Demi Lovato Explains Her Passion After Taylor Swift 'Shade'

Demi Lovato is seemingly apologizing for throwing “shade” at Taylor Swift after her donation to Kesha.

The 22-year-old entertainer took to Instagram to explain that she wants the focus to be on the victims and nothing else.

“As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say,” Demi wrote. “And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place. Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories.”

Demi continued, “They’re more likely to face retaliation and harassment than to see justice being served. Especially women. It baffles me that when it comes to serious issues like equality and abuse, too often women are not taken as seriously as men. All I want to see is women coming together and actually making a difference. A real change and shift in society. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others, and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters. Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it’s okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.”

    Shut up, Demi no one cares. You don’t actually do anything help except ramble on your social media sites as some self proclaimed women rights blah, blah

    Only someone so full of their own shit and petty jealousies would have taken any affront to another person helping a fellow artist with financial help.

    Especially when the artist’s own mother was beyond thank-full and appreciative for the help.

    Demi is having a Kanye moment, I’m afraid. She needs to get off Twitter for a while.

    So instead of attacking men who rape and abuse she attacks a woman who’s trying to help. Go back to wearing next to nothing and being “empowered”.

  • Swagsaad

    demi was so right

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    or attack a liar.

    Thank you, but please keep that foot in your mouth.

  • BEYMEY

    she is just ridiculous

    I don’t care what Demi says, but what I really don’t get- Why on earth would Taylor Swift give Kesha 250k?! Isn’t Kesha a millionaire herself? Aren’t there millions of other places where the money would be much more needed (organizations for children, animals, abused women in general etc.)?

  • Gina

    Kesha hasn’t had a hit in years. One hit wonders like her aren’t that rich. I hope things work out for her.

  • Gina

    Another casualty of the Taylor Swift machine, unfortunately.

  • saphiry

    But she isn’t broke, is she? I mean she also had a few other songs (the one with Florida or Die Young) that probably weren’t as successful as the first ones, but still. I mean I feel really bad for her, but I just don’t really get the whole money thing.

  • Gina

    Record labels like Sony eat up an artists profits. If they are evil enough to not free her from her contract, they are evil enough to take a huge chunk of it’s artists profits too.

  • HG

    Yup cover your tracks girl, what do you expect from a Hilary supporter just cause she’s a woman RMFE !!

  • rubie

    I totally understood what demi meant , it came off wrong, but she meant, do something, stand up, SHARE your voice like Lena did, not throw money at it, but Taylor was also helping too. Both ladies are contributing – Woman UNITE!!

    Be yourself no matter what other people think. Besides, an original is always worth more than a copy.
