It wasn’t long before Lovato found herself the target of angry Swift fans who accused her of “shading” the singer.

In response, Lovato took to the comment section of one angry fan’s Instagram writing:

“How the f*** am I making this about myself? At least I’m talking about it. 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 sh** that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7.”

“There’s no ‘rivalry’ I just give more f***s than other people and would rather start a dialogue ABOUT WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person.”

“I didn’t shade Taylor. If you take it that way than[sic] fine. I’m just tired of seeing women use ‘women empowerment’ and ‘feminism’ to further brands without actually being the ones that have the uncomfortable conversations. I get shade and I don’t give a f*** because someone has to be the one to take it. At least I’m getting my hands dirty.”
