Demi Lovato is blasting Time magazine for naming President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden prepares to confront Putin Biden aims to bolster troubled Turkey ties in first Erdoğan meeting Senate investigation of insurrection falls short MORE as runner-up for its annual “Person of the Year” issue while picking the women of the #MeToo movement for its cover, calling the move hypocritical and disrespectful.

The 25-year-old “Sorry Not Sorry” singer tweeted to her more than 52 million followers on Wednesday:

Lovato has been critical of Trump before, saying in the past she’d rather “lose fans and stand up for what I believe.” She added on Wednesday that the Time cover "is worth speaking up about."


Time dubbed a group it named “The Silence Breakers” as its person of the year, unveiling a cover Wednesday morning featuring actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, lobbyist Adama Iwu and Isabel Pascual, described as “a strawberry picker and an immigrant from Mexico whose name was changed to protect her identity.”

Trump took the runner-up slot, with a write-up about the commander in chief saying he “changed the rules of the presidency.”

Time said the Person of the Year title recognizes “the person or group of people who most influenced the news during the past year, for better or for worse.”

The magazine didn’t immediately respond to ITK's request for comment about Lovato’s criticism.
