Lovato, who recently opened up about her drug addiction and the fight with the rehabilitation in a raw-You Tube documentary, also acknowledged that after the campaign for Hillary Clinton, she has decided to take a step back from the share of politically driven opinions on social media in order to prevent further division of the country.

“I’m less vocal about my distain for certain people over the past year, because it only divides our country even more but this is worth to talk about,” she writes. “@TIME – very disappointed in your hypocrisy and lack of respect to the women on the cover.”

The singer also argued that because the cover of the magazine celebrating something positive, the Time must have carried the theme in question.

“To be named POTY by @TIME should be to do something positive or brave AS the women on the cover. It is annoying that it is just about the impact on the news.”

And although Lovato supported “#MeToo” movement women adorn the cover of Time, she did retweet a fan who said that Kesha should have also been included. Kesha is another public figure who has fought against sexual violence since her alleged experience with Dr. Luke in 2014. Taylor Swift, who is featured on the Time cover next to Ashley Judd, donated money to Kesha after Kesha’s order against Dr. Luke was later denied by the court.

But Lovato does not limit her opinion to just social media. During her American Music Awards performance back in Novemeber, the singer called out all the haters in the world before the frontwoman of her hit “Sorry Not Sorry.”

“There is so much hate in this world,” she began. “We have to rise above. And never say sorry.”
