Oh, and she threw shade at the entire squad while she was at it. 👀

Please grab a sweater, because Demi Lovato (opens in new tab) just hurled a massive cloud of pretty chilly shade over to Taylor Swift. When asked about Swift, the "Confident" singer—who has long been an advocate of body positivity (opens in new tab)—questioned the friend group for promoting unrealistic body image goals, saying (opens in new tab), "To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, but 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."

Of course, the definition of "normal" is totally subjective and all bodies should be celebrated. That said, let's move on to Demi's comments about Taylor Swift (opens in new tab) and Katy Perry. To quote: "I think 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."

Demi is of course referring to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video (opens in new tab), which is rumored to be about her long-standing feud (opens in new tab) with Perry. Probably a good time to re-watch this classic and ponder life's important questions.

In related news, Demi tweeted about her controversial quotes, and said tweets are best described as #sorrynotsorry.
