Demi Lovato Slams Bulimic Lady Gaga

demi-gaga-demi-gagademi-monstergagagagagaDemetria Devonne Lovato declared on Twitter: That’s an ignorant thing to say and you clearly don’t know anything about mental illnesses or addiction. RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato And you know comparing self-harm to this situation doesn’t even make sense. Accusing someone of..

UPDATE: All I’m saying is, artists in pop culture have influence on people.. Some of which are people who aren’t capable of understanding the art that is that is expressed by their idols. Young people who are struggling to figure out their identities are seriously influenced by the things they see their idols do.

Whether we intend to or not, artists influence people of ALL ages and unfortunately what people see, people do. Hair, clothes and sometimes misinterpreting things, therefore using the excuse of art to engage in self-destructive behaviors. I’ve been through a shit ton..

More than any of you know, and I sympathize for everyone’s struggle. But people emulate what they see celebrities do or let happen. And that’s why I had to say something.. to let the people who don’t understand the art in it, that bulimia isn’t cool, and it won’t get you on stage with your favorite artist.



I can’t NOT say anything because I stand up for what I believe in and speak out about mental illnesses. You’re right, nobody asked my opinion but pop culture is a huge part in leading our generation, we have to continue to strive to change the world. No hate, no shade, just love.

    team shut the fuck up.

    • honesty

      I love Demi but that is all I was thinking when reading her rant.

      • Guest

        Yeah, it was in one of Kingsley’s tweets she replied to

        • honesty

          ??

  • boystan

    Does she even know Gaga had an eating disorder too?

    • Some Dude

      Yeah, it was in one of Kingsley’s tweets that she replied to

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      in gaga’s defense she could say that ‘heart attack’ glamorizes heart attacks.

  • boystan

    Okay, Demi needs to shut the fuck up. First with her “stop yas slay tweets.” It’s gay lingo, don’t fucking tell me i can’t use those words. You’re straight, go whine about something else. Then, her staff kicked a fan out of her m&g for having a panic attack and did nothing about. No one’s fucking glamorizing anything. Millie is an artist and is %100 healthy. The song “Swine” is about Gaga’s past and the hardest stuff she’s been through.

    • dlovCyr

      Yea seriously, she loves shoving her opinions down people’s throats.

    • GentileJewel

      One: Don’t care so much for this homosexual whatever thing but a panic attack is not a mental illness however if she really kicked someone out for that! That is severely disturbing and not surprising for her!

  • dlovCyr

    I died at “I could call mine art too?”

  • boystan

    So if you cared so much about mental illness you would’ve done something about that fan

  • Zaina777

    I’m Team Demi to be honest. I feel like Lady Gaga does this stuff for the shock effect of it. I mean she’s always been weird from the meat dress to the the weird music videos and now to this. I think it had to be said and i’m glad Demi spoke the truth. I’m all for orignality but Gaga went overboard with this. She’s thin and she has a girl throwing up at her concerts. I mean she has teenage girls who watch her and are still very impressionable. Also, with the meat dress that is also offensive or with the Judas music video.

    • boystan

      judas video is gold

      • Zaina777

        Meh, to be honest I was scared of the video. I can’t watch it without being creeped out.

        • boystan

          The hair, fashion, choreo. Best video in pop history. YASSS SLAY ME KWEEN!

          • Zaina777

            Scariest video in pop history*

    • Godney

      I feel all this is for shock effect.. like, i had eating dissorder too… can i use it like this also and call myself an artist?

      I do think the meat dress was horrible, it was the same thing as using fur tbh.
      Judas video is bored… i do like the make up on that video tho.

      (but all this is because artpop was not what she promised to be)

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Is that the real Kingsley she’s arguing with?

    • Zaina777

      I hope so. I love that man. I swear if he was straight I would actually marry him if I could.He’s so hilarious.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        He’s so funny and relatable.
        I don’t see anything on his page that indicates he’s tweeted Demi or anything about Gaga.

        • Zaina777

          I just went on Demi’s twitter and she didn’t directly tweet back to him but tweeted him indirectly along with the fan who tweeted her about it.

          • honesty

            She did tweet him directly. It’s just that you have to click the links in her tweets. They were too long to display on twitter so they went to twitlonger. Or whatever site.

        • honesty

          He probably deleted the tweets because I saw them earlier. He was tweeting back and forth with Demi.

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            Oh wow, Kingsley is usually really level headed. I’m surprised.

          • honesty

            He was being logical though. IMHO I think he won their little dispute. He was just saying how gaga wasn’t trying to glamorize eating disorders and Demi knows that she wouldn’t do that. So he was just telling her to stop forcing an intention behind gaga’s actions that wasn’t there from the get go.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I’m on Demi’s side, that was atrocious. It boggles my mind that anyone could defend GaGa’s latest scam attempts to stay relevant.

  • boystan

    Not trying to shock anyone, she’s done it before. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK9v_9eMtZQ

    • Godney

      nobody cared when she did it back then tho… it wasnt news.

  • Alii

    It didn’t even occur to me that it would be offensive to bulimics or former bulimics only because I read that the girl was like famous for vomit painting or something. I assumed it was supposed to be artistic. It’s disgusting as shit to me and nothing else but I can see how incredibly triggering it can be to other people who have and who are still struggling. It’s insensitive.

    • Zaina777

      I agree completely. It’s evident that Demi’s very sensitive to the subject.

  • boystan

    Demi’s acting as if she’s the only one who’s had an eating disorder ever.

    • rose.garden

      Hmm, I don’t think so. I think she’s just standing up for herself and the millions of people who have eating disorders as well. She comes off as too much though but it’s understandable.

    • dorkyclutz

      I don’t know if you’ve ever had an eating disorder, and I’m not speaking for everybody who is/was struggling with an eating disorder, but from my experience stuff like this is a bit… insensible. And whenever someone will insensibly bring up these kinds of topics I do, and I know that other people who struggled with eating disorders do too, get very defensive on it, so I understand Demi’s tweets.

  • Regina George

    Demi is obviously thirsty and missing Wilmer

  • Opps

    Hey Demi your 15 mins of fame with your cutting has ended a long time ago! Bye!!!!!!

    • Ro.

      that’s rude dude.

      • GentileJewel

        No! It is called honest and overdue!

        • Ro.

          whatever dude, chill

    • Cici

      Ignorant. Keep preaching that while she is selling out stadiums. Bye.

  • ikeepempressedt

    team that shit is nasty.

    • Godney

      lmao

  • http://instagram.com/foreverjordan thesestrangelittlethings

    When I first heard about this, I thought Demi was overreacting, but I have to say I actually agree with her now. You don’t know what triggers certain people, and Gaga should’ve had that in mind. It may be art for some people but not for others.

  • Tiggs

    Everyone expresses themselves in different ways some may go against the social norms but it does make them bad or weird GaGa struggled with an eating disorder just like demi and this is just her way of getting it out performance is her art and art is a means for expression demi shouldn’t accuse her of glamorizing something she struggled with and feels strong enough to share it with her fan base

    • Douglas

      She’s seeing it from a different perspective than you, and her perspective is that it can be harmful and triggering to those of GaGa’s fans that have had disorders, and sometimes if it’s seen to be something that’s ‘glamorized’ by a person you look up to, then it can be very easy to relapse and think that it’s something that’s ok and ‘artsy’ when it’s an addiction and a problem.

  • http://oceanup.com OCEANUP

    she might not be mocking bulimia, when people are sick and want to throw up and get it over with they stick fingers done throat. it honestly appears like she is doing this for the show if you watch the full video

  • roxanneXD

    Demi love rehab drama! bored with their same sermons girl

  • GentileJewel

    They are both pieces of Shit! Demi with her Bitch spoiled attitude and that freak with major psycho issues! She needs help!

    • Molly

      If you could not mock those who have had problems and came over their struggles, that would be fabulous thank you.

    • SamD

      Why are you still here!? Go f@*k yourself!

    • Random Passer-By

      “Shit” is not a proper noun either, so there’s no capitalization necessary.

  • Kirsten

    Lmao I love the fact that she was brave enough to @ her ! I feel like Demi’s the type of female who will tell you straight to your face rather then talking behind your back . And she’s good with words I would hate to get into a argument with her shed prob curse someone out in a heartbeat. lol but y’all know how Demi is about shit like this she always gone have something smart to say she doesn’t hold back . Lol I have respect for her for stating her opinion I don’t think it was that big of a deal bug I never had an eating disorder and I can see why someone who has had one would get affended

    • GentileJewel

      You really think she gives a damn about this? That’s cute! She is nothing but an attention seeking whore who uses her abusive nature to Bitch and bemoan people over the littlest or stupidest things that have nothing to do with her!

      • Ro.

        that’s called “caring for others” sometimes it’s hard state your opinion even if you are right. Demi’s upset because she have the need to help people, even when “nobody ask for it”. I think what Gaga did in her show is disgusting, and if people think that’s art well that’s their opinion, at least to me is nasty.

        • GentileJewel

          One: That freak is always revolting! I was just referring to the other Bitch that is all!

          • Random Passer-By

            “Bitch” is not a proper noun, so there’s no need to capitalize it in every comment you post (:

          • Mack

            Dumbass Gentile! Dumbass Gentile!

          • SamD

            …Oh my God, I love you.

        • Mack

          Don’t even reply to the dumbass Gentile. Their comments are never right. Ever xD you should go see their other posts! *failure*

          • Ro.

            yes i know, what a waste of time, thanks (:

  • jay

    The whole point of this argument is that people are impressionable. when someone famous and known for pushing boundaries (like lady gaga) does something like this, other people try to imitate it, or think its cool. The girl (millie brown) is an ‘artist’ and her ‘art’ is making herself throw up different colored soy milk. Making yourself throw up is very harmful and is addicting in nature. For a lot of people, Lady Gaga is sending the message that ‘hey being able to make yourself throw up is liberating and cool’. It is not ‘art’ and it is not healthy. The fact that people are defending this type of ‘art’ is purely ridiculous.

    • GentileJewel

      She is never and was never about art! She is an attention seeking exhibitionist!

      • q

        I don’t think it matters who the people are/were. The whole point is that people are accepting of this type of behavior because its been commercialized and they shouldn’t be. I think the ‘artist’ millie is absurd and the fact that anyone would give her attention for it is the most preposterous thing ive ever seen.

        • GentileJewel

          We are talking about two problems not one that is how this started and I can’t imagine how weird or disgusting that third party is!

  • TheStraightShooter

    Oh, but she’ll speak out about bullying but go on a show meant to humiliate people because she’s getting a paycheck/exposure for it. Shut up, bitch.

    • GentileJewel

      She is a hypocrite!

      • Mack

        …And you’re a dumbass

  • Chibiusa

    That women puking purposely for supposed “art” can obviously trigger people with eating disorders but Gaga has always been problematic so this is not surprising.

  • thecat61

    Wow, demi taking on gaga — the drama!!!

  • Cici

    #TeamDemi I’m glad someone isnt afraid to stand up for something in Hollywood.

  • Grammy Winner Taylor Swift

    Gaga copying Miley AGAIN!

    Too bad it didn’t help her sales like it did for Miley.

  • Emmy

    Honestly, I am sick of Demi’s attention-whoring. I’ve been sick of it ever since she got out of “rehab”. I don’t even like Lady Gaga all that much tbh. There is nothing I hate more than vomit because of the nasty smell. But I would not have thought of bulimia in this instance. Demi’s just using Gaga’s stunts to get herself some more press time. It’s quite pathetic. They are both battling each other for irrelevance. Gaga is an incredible singer, antics aside, so, if she stopped trying so hard, I might like her.

  • JoeJonasTroops

    Demi is very sensitive to this subject and gaga don’t give a crap about y’all

  • Godney

    I dont think she is mocking bullimia as much as she is just trying to be “relevant” again.
    Artpop was not what she tried to make it up to be.
    I can understand to certain level demi tho.

  • BrokenArrow18

    I’m beyond annoyed by her omg she needs to shut the fuck up.First I really like how she was tryng to help girls and stuff nows she’s fucking annoying

  • Zaina777

    Why yes I do. Apparently you don’t though. :)
