In an interview for Cosmo’s September’s issue, Lovato had a few words for some undisclosed singers: “There are a lot of girls in pop. They have badass lyrics, but I feel like I’m the only person other than Rihanna and Nicki Minaj who isn’t afraid to say, ‘Try something on me and I’ll fucking beat your ass.’ There are people who can dress up and play the part, but their music doesn’t say it.”

Oh, and what about that time she called out Starbucks!


Or all those times she reminded everyone that body shaming is lame.

She’s also quick to back up her friends, so don’t mess with her new bestie, Iggy Azalea.

Despite the harsh criticism Azalea has endured this year, Lovato proudly stands by her side. “She’s very, very, very real. What you see is what you get. I think sometimes that pushes people away, but that’s what I admire about her. She’s the furthest thing from fake. In this entertainment business, that’s so hard to find with anybody,” she told Complex magazine.

We hear ya, Demi.
