Somehow, Demi Lovato Managed to Sh*t on Taylor Swift’s Generosity to Kesha
Add this to the very top of Demi Lovato’s worst moments of all time. The 23-year-old singer has (once again) managed to take a situation revolving entirely around someone else and make it all about her. But honestly — are you really surprised?
In the aftermath of a judge ruling that Kesha still has to work with the producer who raped her, countless celebrities have spoken out about in support. Perhaps no one made as big of a statement as Taylor Swift, however, as she donated a large sum of money to help the singer with any legal fees.
“In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time,” the “Out of the Woods” songstress’ rep told Just Jared Jr.
Amazing, right? Well, not according to Demi. Just hours after she tweeted, “I’m also ready for self-proclaimed feminists to start speaking out or taking action for women’s rights…women empowerment is speaking up for other women even when it’s something uncomfortable to speak up about,” the brunette sent another tweet that was a not-so-indirect hit at Tay.
Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.

And as if that wasn’t enough shade, Demi also posted a picture to Instagram that has since been deleted.

But while the entire world has come to the conclusion that the “Confident” crooner was throwing repeated backhanded comments at Taylor, she apparently backtracked and replied to an Insta user who called out her shade.
“How the f*ck am I making it about myself? 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… 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… I didn’t shade Taylor. If you take it that way than 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.”
WOOOOOOOOW. That’s all we have to say.
