Demi Lovato ‘Hypocritical’ For Making It Rain At Strip Club Despite Critique of Taylor Swift “Throwing Money”
The feud between Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato will never end — at least not as far as the stans are concerned. In a series of Instagram videos, the ex-Disney Channel star was seen making it rain on strippers at a club, throwing hundreds upon hundreds of single dollar bills onto the floor and stuffing handfuls into a dancer’s thong. While that’s all well and good, and if the whole “Dua Lipa is canceled” thing taught us anything it’s that supporting strippers and sex workers is feminism, it’s Demi’s previous comments about “throwing money,” that have people calling her shady.
“Not everyone has 250K to just give to people. Would love to but I didn’t grow up with money and def haven’t made as much as her. At least I speak up about shit that’s uncomfortable to talk about,” Demi wrote in an IG comment after Taylor donated a quarter-million dollars to help with legal fees during her trial after being allegedly raped by Dr. Luke.
It’s her continuing quote that Swifties think is in direct violation of her actions at the strip joint. “[I] would rather start a dialogue… than throw money at one person.” Interesting. So, Demi is “throwing money at one person” (a stripper), when possibly she *means* to start a dialogue about how sex work should be destigmatized, but some people def think her actions are hypocritical.

Demi Lovato’s feud with T.S. has been raging on for years, and seemed to start when Selena Gomez seemingly ditched her friendship with the Sonny With A Chance star to be BFFs with Taylor. Many public jabs and years later, Demi sided with Scooter Braun after he swiped Taylor’s masters from Big Machine Label Group. But there was a white flag thrown when Demi supported Taylor’s album release for Lover and Taylor seemed to accept the olive branch.
Yes, the comments Demi made about “throwing money at people” was years ago, so maybe her views have changed.
