Demi Lovato Has A Message For Her Haters

Twitter
Demi Lovato was cool for the summer, but it looks like things are getting heated for the singer in the fall.

According to Seventeen, the pop star faced some backlash this week when she reacted to the release of the new Zendaya Barbie doll and tweeted, "Hey @Barbie, what about a curvy doll or one with true to size measurements? I'll model!!" Some fans saw this not only as a dig to Zendaya (who has already had to deal with criticism about her look from Giuliana Rancic), but as a way to steal the spotlight.

As one Twitter user put it,
"Demi Lovato needs to work out her issues on her own time and stop trying to steal the spotlight from Zendaya's moment. Nobody likes a hater." Lovato didn't take well to the hater response and asked that said online haters focus their energy elsewhere.

In a tweet posted on Monday night, Lovato wrote, "Media and everyone online: anytime you go to post something negative, or gossipy bullshit, go spend time with someone you love. Life is way"
Wait...way what, Demi?

Got it.

Zendaya, on the other hand, has not tweeted anything about the whole Lovato hullabaloo, but she has been championing her doll on social media, posting earlier this week on Twitter about her groundbreaking Barbie, "When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my...how times have changed."
