Meghan Trainor struck a nerve with Demi Lovato.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the "All About That Bass" singer spoke on growing up as the "chubby girl" in school and being rejected by a guy she liked because of her weight. 

"I did have this one boy come up to me, who, like I loved him, I was so in love. And he told me, 'You'd be like real hot if you were 10 pounds lighter,'" she said. 'I was like, 'Ugh, that's it! I am going to cry all day and not eat for the rest of the day.'"

So did she do it? Not eat for the rest of the day?

Apparently not.

"I wasn't strong enough to have an eating disorder. I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that's not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, 'Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, Immediately.'"

This statement did NOT sit well with Demi Lovato. 

Demi, who has suffered from eating disorders, put in her two cents about the topic, saying that being "strong" and having an eating disorder have nothing to do with one another.
