Demi Lovato gave your heart a break but now she’s giving herself one. The singer took to Twitter last week to announce that she is taking a break from music and the spotlight next year. But it isn’t because she just wrapped up this summer’s “Future is Now” tour with singer and fellow Disney star Nick Jonas or to work on new music. She’s laying low because of the industry and the baggage that comes with it. The former Disney star tweeted that she is “not meant for this business and the media.” Her decision comes after she received backlash from an interview with Glamour Magazine. In the interview, Lovato threw jabs at Grammy winner Taylor Swift and her girl squad saying, "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 said.

"It's kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it's not real."

 Taylor Swift's girl squad includes celebrities

The core group of Swift’s girl squad includes singer Selena Gomez, “Starving” singer Hailee Steinfeld, models Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid. Lovato has been open about her struggles with body image, depression and drug abuse. She celebrated four years of sobriety in March. The singer also critiqued Swift’s hit song “Bad Blood.” The song is rumored to be about singer Katy Perry. She said the song does not empower women. In an interview with Cosmo Magazine, Lovato considered herself to be a feminist. 

A source close to Swift speaks out

Swift has yet to publicly respond to the comments but according to E! News, a source close to the singer said Swift thought it was unnecessary for Lovato to make those comments. Swifties were quick to have Taylor’s back but the trolling was just too much for Lovato to stay silent.The “Cool For The Summer” singer later tweeted she simply answers questions she is asked. This isn’t the first time Lovato decided to take a social media detox.
