So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media 👋🏼— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) October 4, 2016
Demi Lovato is taking a break from music, the pop star tweeted out on Tuesday to fans.
Why is Demi Lovato taking a break?
The 24-year-old singer said she's taking a break from the spotlight, because she is "not meant for this business and the media."
The announcement comes after Lovato slammed Taylor Swift in a magazine interview.
In an interview with Glamour Magazine, Lovato suggested Swift could do more for feminism "if they're going to claim that as part of their brand."
She also referenced Swift's "girl squad" saying: "I don't see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body."
Some fans weren't so happy with her comments.
