Demi Lovato

Disses Justin Bieber

at 'X Factor' Auditions

7/13/2013 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0713-demi-lovato-justin-bieber-x-factorDemi Lovato used her "X Factor" pulpit to take not one, but two shots at Justin Bieber during auditions this week ... and there was no mistaking her intentions ... she's no fan of Biebs.

It all went down Wednesday on the campus of USC when Demi took exception to the attitude one contestant was giving off. Sources on set say when it was Demi's turn to give her opinion on the 22-year-old wannabe, she said that the industry already has too many artists with bad attitudes and then commented, "We don't need another little punk running the streets."

Lovato's next shot was less subtle ... when a young man auditioned with Bieber’s own song, “As Long As You Love Me.” We're told the audience loved his performance and so did the judges, but during her critique, Demi remarked, "Well finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung.”

Clearly Demi does not have the patience for Bieber's antics like BFF Selena Gomez does.

litterally shut up TMZ    

STOP PULLING YOUR BULL**** STORIES OUT OF THIN AIR. Demi was indeed not in anyway throwing shade on Justin... they are on good terms! She clarified her statement on twitter by saying " So many people audition with his songs.. Finally someone sang it the way it was meant to be sung..meaning, finally someone sang it the way JUSTIN sang it." Nice try, TMZ. And all those haters commenting: you hated him even when he had a squeaky clean reputation so now that he is making mistakes LIKE A NORMAL HUMAN BEING the ****ing media is catering to your needs to writing ****ty stories like this.

Seem like everyone hate Bieber now because he hang out with to much black people. Sad how he was once loved so much. But now hated because of the skin color of friend. Demi an tool I believe she was a bully/mean girl in school not the other way around.
