Demi Lovato used the wave emoji… again.
The “Body Say” singer gave a big “bye haters” on Twitter Tuesday, writing that she will be getting some R&R next year. “So excited for 2017,” Lovato tweeted. “Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media”.
Lovato, who is known to not back away from a fight, might have done just that after catching shade for her Taylor Swift diss in Glamour magazine and her public comments on fan art that depicted her as a mermaid.
So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media 👋🏼— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) October 4, 2016
I don't understand why people care so much about what I say in interviews? Do y'all watch the news? Don't y'all got shit to worry about?— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) October 4, 2016
Also don't forget that words can be taken out of context when doing interviews.. still not apologizing for saying what everyone want to say— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) October 4, 2016
I get asked questions. I answer them. Sue me.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) October 4, 2016
After asking fans to chat with her on Twitter on Monday night, Lovato was back on the defensive by Tuesday morning. “I don't understand why people care so much about what I say in interviews?” she tweeted after a few jabs. “Do y'all watch the news? Don't y'all got sh-t to worry about?”
Lovato probably shouldn’t be surprised since the headline of her Glamour article is “Demi Lovato Gets Real: ‘This Will Get Me in Trouble, But…’” She called it.
“To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body,” Lovatotold Glamourreferring to Taylor Swift’s posse of pals.
“It’s not realistic,” she added. “And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment.”

woman: has a normal body
demi lovato: no not like that
Demi said that Taylor doesn't have a normal body. Isn't 90% of her voice used on promoting that all shapes and sizes are beautiful?— King Swift (@AHSLadyGaga) October 4, 2016
Lovato, who has admitted that she is recovering from an eating disorder, also rained on a fan’s Photoshop parade on Monday when she expressed her dislike for her portrayal as half-fish, half-woman.
If i make your waist slimmer and your boobs bigger to accentuate the fact that i drew you as a mermaid, a mythological creature, doesn't mean I say that you should look like that or all girls should look like that. That's how i imagine mermaids. I worked a lot on that drawing and i was proud of it, but not anymore. @ddlovato. The coments are from @sexlikelovato_'s post #demilovato
“Is that how my boobs should look?” she asked on Instagram after seeing the drawing created by 17-year-old Romanian fan Vladimir Serbanescu. Serbanescu, a self-taught artist who previously portrayed Selena Gomez as a mermaid, based the mythical underwater creature tribute on Lovato’s cover art for “Confident.”
"I used to like you a lot, but you disappointed me," Serbanescutold Seventeenwhen asked what he would say to Lovato now. "I don't hate you at all, but for now on I will never draw you again."
Lovato quit Twitter earlier this year after another virtual confrontation,Mashable reported,but after one whole day, she returned. So see ya tomorrow, maybe?
