Demi Lovato Retiring: Taylor Swift The Reason?
Disney star Demi Lovato has decided to leave music in the New Year after taking a dig at Taylor Swift in a recent interview. She said she wants to focus on her charity work at the present. She also said that her remarks on Swift might seem to be irrelevant, but it stood by Katy Perry in the tussle between the feud between the songstresses.Advertisement
Shortly after midnight on Wednesday Demi Lovato tweeted that she is eagerly looking forward to 2017. “So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media.”
The Mirror reported that when asked to explain her decision she said, “Dunno. It doesn’t feel worth it anymore. I’d rather do charity work tbh (sic)”
Lovato’s remarks slamming Swift for using her 2014 song “Bad Blood” to reference the feud with Perry, while still calling herself a feminist, in the interview with the “Glamour” magazine went viral on Tuesday. She also said that she is not made for a celebrity life, the Fuse TV reported.
“I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment,” Demi Lovato said. “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.”
She added that the Swift also failed to promote healthy body positivity by featuring only women with perfect bodies in the video, as this would carry a wrong message for the young fans. “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,” Lovato continued. “It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.”
