Demi Lovato Slams Lady Gaga for “Glamorizing” Eating Disorders
As if she weren't enough of an icon already, Demi Lovato further proved her role model status after blasting Lady Gaga for "glamorizing" eating disorders at South by Southwest (SXSW). Here, let us bring you up to speed…
While singing her song "Swine" at the music festival, the Gagster (which is very fitting name at the moment) allowed "vomit painter" Millie Brown to, uhh… perform her craft on her; as in, Millie stuck her finger down her throat, and puked green juices that used to be inside of her onto the "Applause" crooner. LG then performed the rest of the show cover in throw-up. K.
Fortunately, Demi, who has become renowned for speaking up about body image and eating disorders, didn't hold back on the disgust she felt for this particular event:
Sad… As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eat disorders already. Bottom line, it's not "cool" or "artsy" at all.— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) March 14, 2014

It's not "shade" and it's not "hate". But someone has to come forward and say it and I'll take the heat for it. ??— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) March 14, 2014
Activists don't shut up. If no one raises their voice, how are we supposed to be heard?— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) March 14, 2014
Ps. I'm still a little monster myself. ??????— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) March 15, 2014
