Recently there has been a lot of tension between Demi Lovato and Halsey. The feud started when Halsey made a subliminal jab at Lovato’s song “Cool For The Summer.” In an interview with Paper Magazine, when Halsey was asked about her feelings on queer representation in pop music, Halsey said “Oh, yeah. Bisexuality as a taboo. “Don’t tell your mom” or “We shouldn’t do this” or “This feels so wrong but it’s so right.” That narrative is so f***ing damaging to bisexuality and its place in society. That’s something I’ve had to fight my whole life..”
After the interview was published, Lovato later took to Twitter to make a subliminal clapback at Halsey’s statement saying “”You know a song is a hit when people are still talking about the lyrics two years later.” and then later adding the hashtag “#shhhhdonttellyourmother”

A couple of weeks after the dispute, Lovato squashed her beef with Halsey by simply posting a photo on Instagram with Halsey saying “Ran into this beauty today.” The two seemed to be enjoying each other’s presence in the photo. It’s good to see female pop stars support each other and resolve their issues instead of trying to tear each other down.
