Sometimes you love Demi Lovato, like when she’s being honest and open about her past struggles, inspiring others with similar mental health and drug abuse issues. Or when she cut ties with Disney and proved she could do so much more than Sonny With a Chance and the Camp Rock movies. Or when she shows us just how stunning her singing voice is, like at the Grammys earlier this year or while kicking butt on tour with Nick Jonas.

But then sometimes you don’t get why she opens her mouth.

You know that saying, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all? Well, that seems to be the opposite of Demi’s motto. She is as outspoken and unapologetic as they come — which is both a good and bad thing. In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Demi had some not-so-nice things to say about Taylor Swift and her friends, leading with “This will get me in trouble, but ….” Oh, no. It’s like starting a sentence with “No offence, but….” You just know it’s not going to be good.

“I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body,” Lovato told Glamour. “It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.”

So her friends have great bodies that many of us covet. Is that such a huge deal? Are they hurting anyone? No. If anyone actually believes their circles of friends needs to be akin to Taylor’s, then that’s on them. Your friends are your friends; it doesn’t or shouldn’t matter what they look like.

And for someone who has been attacked on Twitter for weight issues, Demi probably shouldn’t be dictating what people’s bodies should look like. That’s a whole other kind of shaming right there.

Of course Swifty fans gave Lovato a piece of their minds and Demi defended herself on Twitter, in her usual blunt way, nor does she regret what she said about Tay.

Now it seems like Demi is imposing yet another break, from music and the spotlight (and, presumably, social media).

And Lovatics, Demi’s fan base, are angry that the social media bullying has driven the singer away, at least for the time being.

At least she’ll be doing charitable work? Seriously, though, Demi will be back, probably sooner than we think and definitely stronger than ever. If anyone can overcome, it’s Lovato. But sometimes we all need to unplug and take some time off.
