Demi Lovato has become the center of feud rumors all week long. The former Disney starlet is reportedly in a feud with both rapper Nicki Minaj as well as Taylor Swift and her squad. Learn how Demi Lovato has been dealing with the social media drama involving her and most of young Hollywood.
It all started when Demi Lovato admitted that she didn’t like it when Nicki Minaj didn’t tag her in an Instagram post featuring both stars at the Met Gala. She took to both Instagram and Snapchat to air out her annoyance with Minaj’s post, although she made it clear that she was only joking. Then she followed up with her own Instagram post, which featured Minaj throwing some major side-eye as they both stood next to designer Jeremy Scott.
She then had one of those late-night rants that some of us have on Twitter on early Thursday morning. Though the 23-year-old singer didn’t directly say what she was upset about, it’s clear that she’s tired of the scrutiny over every social media posts she makes.
“Sometimes there’s more to the story,” she tweeted. “Sometimes there’s more s**t going on than you see. Maybe you DON’T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn’t assume you know.”

Demi Lovato then followed up with the tweet, “Maybe I’m tired of sharing my story with the world.” Lovato has always been open and honest about her road to recovery and mental health issues. She said that the reason behind her tweets has a lot to do with her bipolar disorder.
Then the recovering addict tweeted, “Maybe my midnight rants are part of my bipolar disorder. Can’t change being crazy.. But you can press unfollow.”
She didn’t stop there, though. Lovato then added, “Or maybe I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself. Or maybe telling your future children how you spent more time cyber bullying strangers than you did building a better future for them..”
It appeared that Demi Lovato’s late-night rant had to do with the negative remarks she received shortly after she exclaimed her frustrations over Nicki Minaj’s Instagram post.
It turns out that most of the tweets from Demi Lovato’s late-night rant have been deleted. The singer has been taking out her frustrations at the gym rather than on social media. Lovato did, however, take to Snapchat and Instagram to post a series of videos that show off her intense workouts.
“I hate the word victim,” she wrote in an Instagram post that shows her punching a dummy in the groin. “I never have been and I never will be.” In the video, Lovato’s hair is pulled back in a ponytail but quickly flies out of the rubber band once she starts punching the dummy repeatedly.
On Snapchat, the singer shared a similar self-defense video with the vulgar caption, “Come at me motherf******.”
Then Demi took to Instagram again to share a video of her squatting as she lifts a barbell weighing around 45lbs. She simply captioned the clip “Friday” with the bicep flexing emoji.
In all of the videos, Lovato is seen working out her frustrations in a black tank top and matching capri-style leggings with white sneakers.
Demi Lovato recently graced the cover of Latina magazine where she opens up about her diet and fitness routine. In the interview, the pop star revealed that she still follows a strict diet and exercise regimen with the help of her personal trainer. Lovato also admitted that recovering from an eating disorder has affected the way she eats.
“I’ve actually been on a meal plan for almost two years now, because in my recovery I have to surrender control over food to somebody else so I can just focus on my mental state. I’ve been my heaviest in my relationship with Wilmer and also been my thinnest. He’s seen it all and loves me equally, and it gives me confidence to know that.”
