Demi Lovato Seemingly Shades Taylor Swift Over Kesha Donation

While Demi Lovato denies throwing shade at Taylor Swift, she appears to be very against the 26-year-old singer giving $250,000 to Kesha amid her legal battle with Sony and music producer, Dr. Luke.

"Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed," Lovato tweeted just minutes after Swift's donation was revealed.

The "Skyscraper" singer further defended herself when she commented on a post shared on the Instagram fan page, Proud of Swift. "How the f**k am I making this about myself? At least I'm talking about it. Not everyone has 250k to just give to people," she wrote. "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 sh** that's uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7."

When @ProudOfSwift still accused Lovato of shading Swift, the 23-year-old singer insisted she was doing no such thing. "There's no 'rivalry' I just give more f**ks than other people and would rather start a dialogue ABOUT WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person," she continued. "I didn't shade Taylor. If you take it that way than fine. I'm just tired of seeing women use 'women empowerment' and 'feminism' to further brands without actually being the ones that have the uncomfortable conversations."

Lovato added, "I get shade and I don't give a f**k because someone has to be the one to take it. At least I'm getting my hands dirty."

Kesha's mother, Pebe Sebert, didn't take issue with Swift's donation. In fact, she praised the GRAMMY winner for her generosity. "A person's wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they they help with it. And Taylor Swift is is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you," Sebert tweeted, followed by a red rose. "Most important for Kesha, is that these beautiful, powerful women are standing behind her, letting the world see how powerful the truth is!"

Regardless of how Lovato feels about Swift's gesture, both women seem to be in support of Kesha. "Frustrating to see women come forward with their past only to be shot down, not believed and disrespected for their bravery in taking action," Lovato posted to Twitter on Sunday. "Someone tell me why anyone would ever feel brave enough to come forward if they are most likely to be ignored or called a liar?"

On Friday, a judge ruled that the "Tik Tok" singer could not get out of her contract with Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records, part of the Sony Music family. The 28-year-old pop star alleged that Dr. Luke (real name: Lukasz Gottwald), 42, drugged and raped her over a decade ago and consistently abused her physically and emotionally. Dr. Luke has denied any wrongdoing.

In addition to Swift and Lovato, other stars including Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande and Lorde rallied around Kesha after the court decision came down.
