Demi Lovato Shuts Down Taylor Swift Feud Rumors On Instagram
Last week, Demi Lovato was accused of shading Taylor Swift during the MTV VMAs. While the show was on, Demi took to Instagram to say there was a reason why she didn’t attend this year’s event, and Swifties were convinced that reason was Taylor. Now, Demi has returned to Instagram to shut down the feud rumors by voicing her support for her fellow performer.
Demi took to Instagram yesterday to share one of Taylor’s songs from her new album Lover, calling it “a jam.” In a second Story, she wrote: “Life’s too short for women not to support other women…especially when women release great music. Great job @taylorswift.”
Taylor has since responded to Demi’s olive branch by sharing her Story and writing: “This is so awesome & put the biggest smile on my face.”
Word of a Demi and Taylor feud began circulating in July when Demi publicly took her manager Scooter Braun’s side during his drama with Taylor. Demi’s statement came after Taylor accused Scooter of “incessant, manipulative bullying” after he acquired her masters in a deal with Tay’s former label Big Machine Records.
During the social media war, Demi stood up to defend her manager over Insta Stories. “I have dealt with bad people in this industry, and Scooter is not one of them. He’s a good man. Personally, I’m grateful he came into my life when he did. Please stop ‘dragging’ people or bullying them. There’s enough hate in this world as it is. Y’all can come after me all you want, but I’m always gonna stay loyal to my team. I value loyalty more than most people in this world, and if my name is gonna be brought into conversations, I’m gonna stand up for myself and the ones on my team.”
Despite Demi’s efforts to reconcile, Swifties think her social media support is fake AF.
Taylor ignored demi all these years until demi gave up and said something nice about Taylor for once and Taylor reposted? Taylor said see when you behave…
