As we reported yesterday- Demi Lovato was being kind of a judgemental dickhead when she found out that Taylor Swift gave Kesha 250,000 to help with Kesha’s mounting legal fees. And Tay’s fans went cray. Now, Demi’s singing a different tune (and it isn’t “Hello,” btw).
“As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say,” Lovato shared via Instagram. “And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place. Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories. They’re more likely to face retaliation and harassment than to see justice being served. Especially women. It baffles me that when it comes to serious issues like equality and abuse, too often women are not taken as seriously as men. All I want to see is women coming together and actually making a difference. A real change and shift in society. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others, and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters. Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it’s okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.”
In summation: apology, cause, inspiration. Good thing to lead with the apology, Demi.
Do you think her post was a good follow-up?
