She also accuses them of promoting a 'false body image'
Swift and Perry have a long alleged history of feuding, with it widely believed and disputed that the song ‘Bad Blood’ is written about their ongoing row. The video also features members of Swift’s ‘squad’ – which in the wider world includes powerful female friends such as Haim, Ellie Goulding, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and many more.
Now, in an interview with Yahoo, Lovato has slammed the squad’s behaviour and the impression they give to young women.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Lovato was recently forced to deny the unauthorised use of a Sleigh Bells’ sample in her track ‘Stars‘. She stands accused of using snippets from their songs ‘Riot Rhythm’ and ‘Infinity Guitars’ for her ‘Confident’ album bonus track.
The feud between Swift and Kanye West continues – despite his wife Kim Kardashian recently claiming that she was ‘a fan’ of hers.
