Demi Lovato slams Lady Gaga for glamorising eating disorders
Daily News & Analysis
As if we didn't have enough people glamorising eat disorders already. Bottom line, it's not 'cool' or 'artsy' at all," she tweeted.
Margaret Vidler's insight:

Demi has a point, the more people, especially young girls, see celebrities  with eating disorders as "normal" and something to be disirable is causing more issues for society, therefore the media needs to make a change on how they report the cases and celebrities need to think of the impact they are causing.
