Demi Lovato

BOOTS Bath Salt

Rappers from 'X Factor'

Demi Lovato
took a page out of Simon Cowell's playbook ... kicking a pair of 'X Factor' contestants off stage today for rapping about smoking bath salts ... TMZ has learned.

Sources on set for 'XF' auditions in Greensboro, NC ... tell us the two guys laid down a rap that included the line, "I'm high on bath salts."

Apparently most of the crowd didn't hear the lyrics, but Demi did -- and as soon as the duo finished she furiously scolded them, saying ... "It's really inappropriate to rap about drugs in front of kids."

Demi did a stint in rehab in 2011, and has admitted to using drugs and booze when she was underage -- so, it's no wonder she went off on the clowns.

We're told the audience agreed with Demi, and booed the contestants off stage ... and they were not judged for the competition.

There's a new sheriff in town ...

I don't blame Demi Lovato one bit for booting and yelling at these idiots who are rapping about being high on bath salts. I hear that these bath salt designer drugs are probably THE most destructive substances on the planet these days. Worse than crystal meth and crack. This crap makes people go bat sheut crazy in a hurry. Some of them start mutilating themselves or try to LITERALLY eat other people's flesh like they are zombies or something. You gotta be a total psycho already to mess with bath salts ... whether they are legal or illegal.

I love that she did this. What I love more, is that she was sincere, not some Hollywood PC bot. Keep up the good work, Demi! I have a new respect for you.

I find it pretty sad that a person can't set their drug problems aside to listen to a simple song. This isn't the only song ever in history to contain lyrics involving drug usage. They wouldn't have had such a problem if these rappers were young girls in school girl skirts singing about sex. What happened, did this song make you want to fall off the wagon? The only reason she's beautiful, and doesn't sport a fat ass is because she pukes herself thin. What she should do is cut herself a little deeper next time...then the world would be able to listen to music without people getting kicked off the stage. Content shouldn't override quality. Maybe she'd have been happier had they sang about her drug of choice...crack.

Now why is this any different than any other drug that rappers rap/brag about doing? This isn't new to the rap world. I guess becuse someone finally said something about it, it's news-worthy?
