Demi Lovato tells haters to "take your negativity elsewhere" in open letter

By Sarah Walker

Demi Lovato has a message for all of her haters. The 23-year-old was with Nick Jonas at the Honda Press Preview during the New York Auto Show this week when two people hurled obscenities her way, causing the candid star to air her grievances.

"I had two instances where I had rude things yelled at me because I didn’t stop for every single person," she shared in an open letter to fans on Twitter. "I try my hardest to stop for as many fans as I possibly can before it gets too hectic or crazy."

Demi was insulted by fans while at an event with Nick Jonas.

She went on to add that, "no matter how long I’ve been doing this, sometimes the madness with the yelling and pushing becomes overwhelming and to avoid people either getting hurt or having more anxiety, I go inside hoping my fans will understand."

The hitmaker continued by saying that it really hurts when this kind of thing happens. "It’s not okay and just remember, I’m used to getting hate but I’m human too. So please… Take your negativity elsewhere."

This isn't the first time the "Let It Go" singer has openly addressed her fans, specifically about confidence and body issues.

"I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could've been living the happy and healthy life I live today. It TRULY just goes to show you that your perceptions can lie to you. OR they can make you learn to enjoy life... I love you... And never forget that staying strong is worth it."

In an interview with Cosmopolitan's sister publication Cosmo on Campus last year, she discussed why she's so open with people her age.

"I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength... It's OK to love your body the way it is and it's OK to reach out for help."

The former Disney star is currently on world tour for her latest album, Confident. She's bringing the concert to Toronto on July 23 and Vancouver on August 24.
