Demi Lovato slams Taylor Swift for 'tearing down' Katy Perry

Demi Lovato slams Taylor Swift for 'tearing down' Katy Perry

Demi Lovato has slammed Taylor Swift and her squad for "tearing down" Katy Perry.

The 'Confident' hitmaker has hit out at the 'Shake It Off' singer and her squad - which includes Cara Delevingne, Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss - for using her 2014 song and video for 'Bad Blood' to reference her feud with the 31-year-old beauty.

Demi, 24, thinks Taylor - who is an outright feminist - failed to empower other women by teaming up with her pals against the 'Roar' hitmaker.

Talking about the video, she said: "I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that's not women's empowerment."

The brunette beauty also criticised the video for only using women with perfect bodies, which she says gives young fans the wrong impression of what they should look like.

In an interview with Yahoo!, Demi added: "This will probably get me in trouble, but I don't see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It's kind of this false image of what people should look like."

Katy - who has long been rumoured to have an ongoing feud with Taylor - recently showed signs that she is ready to make up with the 26-year-old pop star by offering to collaborate with her if she apologises.

The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker seems happy to end her ongoing feud with Taylor and has held out an olive branch by announcing that there is a chance they could work together in the future.

When asked in a Twitter Q&A if she would work with Taylor, Katy replied: "If she says sorry, sure!"

The two singers have had an ongoing feud ever since Taylor claimed the 'Unconditionally' singer pinched three of her backing dancers from her 'RED' tour in 2012.
