Demi Lovato is so done with the nonsense. 

In a lengthy late night Twitter rant, the "Confident" singer held little back as she wrote cryptic message after cryptic message about those who plague her social media with negative commentary. 

"Sometimes there's more to the story," she began subtly. "Sometimes there's more shit going on than you see. Maybe you DON'T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn't assume you know. *middle finger emoji*"

"Maybe my midnight rants are a part of my bipolar disorder. Can't change being crazy.. But you can press unfollow," she continued. 

Ultimately, Lovato revealed the heart of the problem—she is feeling misunderstood, particularly by those who continuously harass her on her public platforms.

"I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself," she declared. "Imagine the love of ur life/biggest crush finding out u spend time on the internet commenting negative shit about celebrities.. Embarrassed?"

"Imagine your grandparents finding out you spend your free time being an internet troll to celebrities you don't even know," she added. "Or imagine telling your future children how you spent more time cyber bullying strangers than you did building a better future for them.."

By nearly 1 a.m., the songstress headed off to bed with one final thought. 

"I'd rather annoy people with my honesty and loud opinions than stay silent and be fake as f--k. #lasttweetofthenight #goingtosleep"

Meanwhile, on Snapchat, she reminded her fans that she is not someone's prey. 

"I hear haters because I am human. I react because I am human," she wrote in text against a black backdrop. "I am NOT a victim. I don't want your sympathy and I don't need anyone's empathy."

While it's still relatively unclear what exactly triggered the tirade, Lovato recently piqued public attention with a photo of herself at the 2016 Met Gala Monday standing near Nicki Minaj

"This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met #cool #sof--kingawkward #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood" she captioned the shot on her Instagram account Tuesday night. Was the #whatsgood hashtag a reference to Minaj's jab at Miley Cyrus during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards? It certainly sounds like it. 

As the photo stirred some headlines, Lovato latter added extra explanation. "p.s. some of y'all need to learn how to take a joke.. I'm obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life."
