Demi Lovato -- who's struggled with an eating disorder for years -- says Lady Gaga's puking stunt at SXSW was despicable because it glamorizes a terrible disease in the name of art.

Lovato just laid a thick amount of shame on Gaga via Twitter ... saying "Sad ... As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eat [sic] disorders already."

Demi adds, "Putting the word ART in it isn't a free card to do whatever you want without consequences."

One Twitter user quipped back ... Gaga has struggled with an eating disorder herself and spoke about it before the performance ... but Demi insists that doesn't give her a pass.

The criticism is well deserved, but I think the best way to make Gaga fade even faster than she has been lately is to just ignore her desperate, sad stunts.

Oh Demi Lovato, you poor child. Jealous much? You're not the patron saint of eating disorders. How about you focus on important things like finding a real career since you have ZERO talent and basically no career. Oh yeah do us all a favor and keep your opinions to yourself unless you're asked to speak on matters you are qualified to speak on. Just because you had an "illness" doesn't qualify you as an expert.

It's sad that people need to dress like a slut or do stupid gimmicks just to sell their music and/or put bodies in the seats at their concerts. I miss those days when the majority of musicians had musical talent.

I actually wonder if this "stunt" was really just Gaga's personal expression of her own issues with eating disorders. Thinly veiled art. She's openly admitted to suffering from bulimia and anorexia. I personally think it's sort of simple-minded to say Gaga is glamorizing bulimia given what we know about her own weight and eating problems.

She is so desperate to be an "artist". This is just desperate attempt to get attention. There is enough ugliness in the world. We don't need to see this crap!

Gaga is trying to be grosser than Miley. They are both trash - there is no art value in either's acts. This what America seems to want and is willing to pay for it. What a crippled nation.
