On Monday, Demi Lovato took to Twitter to shade an unnamed bullied that was in the crowd at her concert.
While singing her infamous anti-hater single “Sorry Not Sorry,” Demi declared that she spotted the mysterious bully in the crowd, and had a cathartic moment in belting her anthem. “The other night I got to sing SNS directly to one of USA’s most notorious bullies,” she tweeted. “It felt so fucking great. That’s what the song is all about!!! Sorry not sorry that you were in the audience watching me kill it.”

The show in question was Lovato’s LA stop on her Tell Me You Love Me tour, which Perez Hilton attended and gave a semi-positive review.“I am a Demi Lovato fan,”he said in a YouTube video. “She wasn’t bad. She was better than before. I have nothing bad to say.”
But on Tuesday morning, after Lovato’s tweet-storm, the celebrity blogger posted anothervideoaddressing the “feud,” and calling Demi out as a bully herself.
“Demi Lovato claims to be an anti-bullying activist,” Hilton says, “but she sure is coming across like a bully to us!” He went on to say that Lovato’s production was “cheap” because her tour is “not making a lot of money.”
So, why the negativity between these two? The bad blood between Demi and Perez sparked in 2016 when Perez liked a series of tweets about Lovato dissing Mariah Carey. She messaged him privately, asking him to “let it go,” and instead, he posted the “receipts” of their conversation.

Petty drama aside, Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me Tour kicked off this month in San Diego and she has been using the tour as an avenue for positivity and social change. At the Los Angeles show, Lovato helped a gay couple get engaged on stage. She invited past American Idol finalist Rayvon Owen on stage. Moments later, his boyfriend Shane Bitney Crone, the subject of Bridegroom, appeared through a trap door and proposed. Owen said yes.
I SAID YES!!!

Previously, Lovato advocated for gun reform by inviting survivors of the Marjory Stoneman-Douglas massacre on stage at her San Diego stop. The Tell Me You Love Me Tour extends through late June with dates spanning the US, South America, and Europe.
