Over the weekend Taylor Swift made a generous donation of $250,000 to Kesha over her recent legal woes, but a seemingly upset Demi Lovato wasn’t having it. Wait aren’t they friends? Soon after it was announced that Taylor had given Kesha the money Demi tweeted, “Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed.”
Well people (you know social media & Taylor’s fans) didn’t take kindly to Demi’s slight and she had to explain her diss.“How the f*ck 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*t that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7,” Demi wrote to a fan on a Taylor Swift Instagram fan site after they pointed out Demi’s alleged diss.
She continued, “There’s no ‘rivalry’ I just give more f*cks than other people and would rather start a dialogue ABOUT WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person,” Demi continued. “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*ck because someone has to be the one to take it. At least I’m getting my hands dirty.”
I get what Demi is saying but Taylor’s gift was super generous and sweet nonetheless. And Kesha’s mother, Pebe Sebert appreciated the love. “Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000 to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time. AMAZING!! A persons wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they they help with it. And Taylor Swift is is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you. Most important for Kesha, is that these beautiful, powerful women are standing behind her, letting the world see how powerful the truth is!”
