Back in February, amid Kesha’s legal battle with Sony and former producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, Demi Lovato sent out a number of tweets supporting her friend. Taylor Swift also supported Kesha in the form of a $250,000 donation to the “Tik Tok” singer’s legal defense. After news spread of Swift’s donation, Lovato tweeted, “Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed,” which was taken as a dig at the “Shake it Off” star.

After she sent the tweet back in February, she posted to Instagram to explain and wrote, “As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say. And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place. Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories.”
