Taylor Swift quietly donated $250,000 to Kesha after the 28-year-old was denied legal request to terminate a contract with a man who allegedly raped her – and Demi Lovato is not happy about it!
According to the 23-year-old, Taylor should be speaking out about serious issues like these, rather than secretly showing her support.

In a series of tweets about women empowerment, Demi wrote things like, “Women empowerment is speaking up for other women even when it’s something uncomfortable to speak up about,” and “Women empowerment is taking action now, not when it’s convenient.”
She also seemingly targeted Taylor writing,
Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed.

In screenshots captured by JustJared, Demi reportedly responded to a fan on Instagram who called her out for bashing Taylor and making the argument about herself.
“How the f— am I making this about myself?” she wrote. “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 s— that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7.”
Demi is one of many celebrities who has publicly spoken out about the injustice of Kesha’s court hearing. Stars like Lorde, Ariana Grande, and Lady Gaga have all tweeted in support of the singer.
