The Disney alum told her Twitter followers that she’s going on hiatus from her career next year, saying that she’s “not meant for this business and the media.”
“So excited for 2017,” Lovato wrote Tuesday. “Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media.”

In the interview, Lovato criticized Swit for declaring herself a feminist without putting in “the work” to become one.
She also took a swipe at Swift and her squad for presenting unrealistic body images.
“Talking about it at all is doing the work. And I think every woman does her part in some way. But I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand,” Lovato said. “To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.”
“It’s not realistic,” Lovato continued. “And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out.”
Lovato, who released her most recent album “Confident” last year, has taken shots at Swift in the past, notably criticizing the singer for not supporting Kesha in her battle with her producer and alleged tormentor Dr. Luke.
