Swift and Perry have a long alleged history of feuding, with it widely believed and disputed that Swift’s song ‘Bad Blood’ was written about their ongoing row.
Lovato slammed the squad’s behaviour and the impression they give to young women, saying: “This will probably get 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.”
Alluding to the video for ‘Bad Blood’, she added: “I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment.”
Now, taking to Twitter, Lovato has explained: “I get asked questions. I answer them. Sue me.” She went on to suggest that “words can be taken out of context when doing interviews” while also stating that she is “still not apologising”.
Lovato later announced that she will take a break from music shortly, tweeting: “So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media”.
