Demi Lovato did an interview and beautiful photoshoot with Glamour magazine that was released on Tuesday. In it, she talks about her charity work, her new music and body positivity. But the tidbit that's making headlines is her quotes about on-again/off-again/mostly-off relationship with Taylor Swift.

Demi got real about Taylor during a conversation about gender equality, saying that Swift totes the feminist flag around but doesn't practice what she preaches. In particular, she referenced "Bad Blood," which is rumored to be about Katy Perry.

"I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out."

The "Bad Blood" video featured Lovato's friend Selena Gomez, along with other members of Swift's squad. That squad is problematic too, Lovato says.

"To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, 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. And what they should be like, and it’s not real."

After the interview was published, she took to Twitter to face the headlines about the controversy:
