[UPDATE: The original version of this post cited the tweet as real. It’s not, it’s fake as hell.] On Monday, Demi Lovato opened the Democratic National Convention with a speech and a song. Apart from this one guy going nuts in the front row, many attendees seemed... unsure what they were listening to.
PHILADELPHIA — It’s the first night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, and the Wells Fargo Center is about to be filled with the words of such great speakers as Senator Bernie Sanders, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Senator Elizabeth Warren. But first—Demi Lovato.
Millennial favorites (?) Demi Lovato, Lena Dunham, and Katy Perry have all campaigned for Hillary Clinton this election cycle, and according to a new report from The Free Beacon, at least one of them has gotten paid. The Clinton campaign reported paying Perry’s company, Kitty Purry, Inc., almost $70,000 in December for “event production.”
Bedroom photos of singer and former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato and ex-boyfriend Fez From That '70s Show leaked online over the weekend, including one alleged topless shot. The photos with Wilmer Valderrama look likely to be real—and they're not particularly racy—but the only nude shot in the whole bunch sticks out as a possible fake.
After Lady Gaga's vomit-inducing SXSW performance wherein a woman puked all over her in the name of Doritos, another pop star has taken issue with the performance art. Demi Lovato, who has struggled with an eating disorder herself, called Gaga's spectacle a glamorization of a real disease in a series of tweets.
X Factor judge/former Disney Channel staple/occasionally troubled young woman Demi Lovato recently appeared on Adult Swim's Eric André Show, and confusion ensued. Engulfed by machine-made fog and holding a plate of spaghetti for some of the time, Lovato was asked to confirm several shows she was on and was told she would be tested for her "
Satan thetan levels." An '80s rock icon showed up, throwing her further off kilter. This is prankish and juvenile on André's part, and yet Lovato has rarely seemed this human in public, even if she says little more than, "Really?" "Um?" "Yeah." and "What?" for the duration of the "interview."
Mariah Carey sits in front of her new MacBook that Nick bought her for Christmas and holds one of her precious babies on her lap. Is it Monroe? Or maybe Moroccan? Damn, she forgot again. She's wearing a Santa red mini dress and sky high pumps on her feet. Her Santa cap hasn't left her head in days. December is a weird time in the Carey household and everyone knows it. All of her holiday staff is fully aware of what December means to her.
Those expecting sunshine and catatonia from Britney Spears' new gig as X Factor judge must have been surprised to see how dismissive and blunt she proved to be on last night's Season 2 premiere of the Fox singing competition.
Sigmund Freud theorized that humans have a death drive, a latent desire for self-destruction. In a media ecosystem rife with celebity death pictures, celebrity death bets, Celebrity Rehab, I'd say we have a culture-wide "death drive," too. The reaction to Whitney Houston's death two weeks ago, reported the day before the Grammys, underscored our obsession with such celebrity tragedies. What would be the Oscars' version of that particular fallout?
At last night's MTV VMAs, Justin Bieber debuted his new pet, a flesh-colored snake named Johnson. Is this standard-issue horny boy juvenilia, or has Bieber taken a turn for the Jacko? "I have a snake," the adolescent male says, extending his Johnson to his girlfriend. "Stop!" the nubile female cries, pushing the fleshy mound away. "I know." [Video via MTV]
