Meghan Trainor Says She Wasn’t “Strong Enough” To Have An Eating Disorder, Demi Lovato Responds

Oh, dear.

Meghan Trainor‘s breezy body acceptance anthem “All About That Bass” continues to bop along on top of the Billboard Hot 100 at the moment, but a recent comment during an interview just landed her in hot water with some critics…including Demi Lovato.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the singer-songwriter spoke about growing up as “a chubby girl” in school and being rejected by a crush because of her weight. She went on to clarify that she never battled an eating disorder — but it’s the way that she dismissed the idea that has since raised a few eyebrows.

“I wasn’t strong enough to have an eating disorder…I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that’s not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, ‘Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, immediately,” she said to ET.

The idea of being “strong enough” to maintain an eating disorder didn’t sit well with some, including Demi, who has been quite vocal about her own struggle with body issues over the years. And, in a series of tweets written earlier this afternoon, she responded: “Having an eating disorder doesn’t show ‘strength,’” she began, taking the opportunity to educate regarding the reality of mental illness.

Nick Jonas And Demi Lovato’s “Avalanche”: Listen To Their Gorgeous Duet

Nick Jonas has been grabbing our attention for several months now, ever since he dropped “Chains” and “Jealous,” a pair or impeccable pop singles from his upcoming self-titled album, and dropped his pants for Flaunt magazine. As for Demi Lovato, well — she might just be the coolest girl in pop.

Demi Lovato Has Already Started Work On Her Next Album, Record Label Pegs 2015 Release Date

Here’s some great news to brighten your Monday. Demi Lovato has already started work on her fifth studio album! “She’s finishing up right now on the last leg of her touring for this year,” her manager told Billboard. “Then the plan is for her to go back into the studio and start the next creative process. She’s already done some songs, but certainly the majority of it will kick off next year.”

I guess this kills those rumors that the pop diva is planning to re-release her current LP with a couple of high-profile duets. Demi has been a particularly successful era for the 22-year-old. It produced three top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 (“Heart Attack”, “Neon Lights” and Cher Lloyd collaboration “Really Don’t Care”) and proved popular around the globe — charting in most major European markets.

“We’re really excited,” Disney Music Group present Ken Bunt told the music bible. “We’ve got a new album coming from her next year. We’re not talking about release dates yet. And she’s going to continue her world tour throughout next year.” It will be interesting to see how Demi’s next era fares in comparison to former Disney divas Selena Gomez and Zendaya, who both have new music due in 2015.  More »

Demi Lovato Defends Taylor Swift: “Don’t F**k With Me If You’re Going To Say Women Suck!”

Aside from her chart-topping smashes like “Give Your Heart A Break,” “Heart Attack” and “Skyscraper,” Queen Demi Lovato is also known for her outspokenness, frequently opening up about everything from sexuality to body image to feminism — and this week is certainly no exception.

Her good friend Taylor Swift‘s been getting plenty of both praise and heat lately for her recent 1989 offerings like “Out Of The Woods,” which led her to speak out about what she considered to be “sexist” criticism for writing about her ex-boyfriends — and it seems that Demi’s in agreement with Tay.

In an interview with ET Canada, the “Neon Lights” singer backed up her friend, going on to say that Taylor’s one of the very few famous friends she has that has yet to be affected by fame. Check out Demi’s full comments after the jump. More »

Restless Road’s Tour Diary With Demi Lovato And Christina Perri (10 Photos): Idolator Premiere

Last year Restless Road formed on the US version of The X Factor, under the guidance of Simon Cowell. The country-pop trio wound up in fourth place by the end of the series’ third season, and earlier this month, they found themselves reuniting with onetime X Factor judge Demi Lovato by opening for her and Christina Perri in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Moline, Illinois.

“Being able to perform on the same stage as Demi and Christina in itself was an amazing experience,” the guys tell Idolator. “We’re huge fans of both of their work. But going into the tour, we weren’t sure how a pop audience would receive our music with us being a country-rooted act. But as soon as we started performing, the crowd immediately started getting into it and having a good time.”

Today we’re premiering a gallery of exclusive backstage photos from their shows with Demi and Christina that the guys provided us, which you can flip through above. (You might notice that a new member, Jared Keim, has replaced Colton Lane Pack since the band were on The X Factor.) And below, is a short Q&A with did with the three of them — Jared, Andrew Scholz and Zachary Beeken — where they discuss their upcoming album and some of their biggest music influences. More »

She Gave His Heart A Break

Sorry, fellas: Demi Lovato is officially off the market.

While performing in Illinois over the weekend, Demetria spotted a certain suitor in the audience (thanks to his homemade sign), and invited him onto the stage. But who is the lucky guy? A 5-year-old Lovatic named Grant, who had a very special request for the “Neon Lights” pop princess.

Although a bit shaky with his delivery (he forgot he’s 5!), Grant was ready to pop the big question. “Before you do it, do you know how to propose to somebody?” Queen Demi advised as she showed the little boy how to bend down on one knee and helping him out with the question. “Demi, will you marry me?” the little one asked, prompting the entire venue to unleash an earth-shattering squeal.

But did she say yes? Prepare all your “AWWWW!“-ing in advance and watch the proposal up top. More »
