Demi Lovato: 'I am not meant for this business and the media'


Demi Lovato said Tuesday that she's looking forward to the new year, but it may not be for reasons you think.

The 24-year-old singer tweeted that in 2017 she'll be "taking a break from music and the spotlight" because she's "not meant for (the) business and the media."

When asked when she'd return to the industry, Lovato said she doesn't know, but "it doesn't feel worth it anymore." 

She also said she would "rather do charity work."

Lovato may have hinted to one of the reason's she's taking a break in a tweet. 

While in Rome, Lovato said she would've liked to explore the city, but she didn't want to because of "annoying" paparazzi.

The "Frozen" singer has previously made headlines for publicly discussing struggles with bulimia and depression and for criticizing Taylor Swift after the release of "Bad Blood."

"I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that's not women's empowerment," she said during an interview with Yahoo.
