Demi Lovato Throws Shade at Taylor Swift’s #GirlSquad for Not Having “Normal Bodies”
There’s certainly no love lost between Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. And though Taylor may still be embroiled in her feud with Kim & Kanye AND the other one with Katy Perry, she may now need to add Demi to the list in a bad (blood?) way. That’s because Demi just threw some serious shade at Taylor for a few reasons, but one in particular: Demi claims that Taylor and her super famous #girlsquad don’t have “normal bodies,” and that it’s a problem.
While chatting with Glamour for their November issue, Demi was asked about Taylor Swift and feminism… and Lovato did NOT hold back. “I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand.”
She continued, “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. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real… It’s not realistic.”
She also went on to tackle Taylor’s feud with Katy Perry and how it reflects false feminism in her eyes. “I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. 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.”
With both her #girlsquad (who is usually quick to come to her rescue) and her feminism under fire (and not for the first time), we have to wonder if Taylor will keep quiet or decide to speak out this time around.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
