Did Demi Lovato Really “Diss” Taylor Swift or Selena Gomez on Radio? (LISTEN)


By Daniel Gates



Demi Lovato has a massive, devoted following that’s helped propel her past personal problems to new heights in music and television.

On Wednesday, when a radio host at KDWB in Minnesota asked the performer why her fans are so “hardcore,” Lovato had an interesting response:

“A lot of celebrities don’t open up to their fans. They just tell them what they want to hear. They don’t really tell them things that can benefit their lives. They just, you know, maybe flaunt around a boyfriend and sell a couple albums. That’s not what my career is about.”

Some outlets — including the radio station itself — are interpreting Lovato’s comments as a direct diss of her contemporaries, like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.

But it’s important to note that Lovato did not actually “take a shot” at anyone by name in the clip.

Of course, the media loves a conflict, which is why the “diss” angle will be exaggerated.
