Demi Lovato tweeted that she will be taking a break in 2017.

Story highlights

  • Lovato gave an interview to Glamour magazine
  • She has been catching flak from Swift fans

(CNN)When Demi Lovato decides to take a break, she really goes for it.

The singer announced Tuesday on Twitter that fans will see less of her next year.
"Taking a break from music and the spotlight," she wrote. "I am not meant for this business and the media."
    Lovato has taken heat for criticizing Taylor Swift in the November issue of Glamour. When an interviewer asked about Lovato's past suggestion that Swift doesn't do enough for feminism, Lovato took a shot at Swift's "squad."
    "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," Lovato said. "It's kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it's not real."
    Suffice it to say the Swifties were not pleased.
    Lovato responded on Twitter: "I don't understand why people care so much about what I say in interviews? Do y'all watch the news? Don't y'all got s**t to worry about?"
    "I get asked questions," she added, "I answer them. Sue me."
    Lovato is on tour with Nick Jonas.
