Demi Lovato Is Single And She Proved That She Is Very Ready To Mingle With Rihanna

We learned a lot about Demi Lovato in this segment.

Demi Lovato is making the rounds to promote her new album “Tell Me You Love Me” and one of her latest stops was with Ellen DeGeneres. DeGeneres is known to have some of the most entertaining games with her celebrity guests. This time, the talk show host got the Texas-born singer to play “Who’d You Rather?” DeGeneres found herself explaining the rules of the game like this:

Lovato: “Who would I rather what?”

DeGeneres:  “Everyone asks that question. It is up to you. Some of them you would rather do other things with and some of them you’d rather do certain things with.”

Lovato: “Okay.”

With that quick explainer, Lovato jumped right in and one person slayed the rest of the competition. But it wasn’t even a real competition. The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer never hesitated when choosing Rihanna as the person she’d rather do anything and everything with.

As soon as RiRi came up on the board, she wasn’t going anywhere.

What you are witnessing is Rihanna’s utter strength and dominance. Rihanna is the person Lovato would rather whatever with through six consecutive match ups. Tbh, can you blame her for loving the music superstar so much?

The only other person that came close to that kind of love was Kristen Stewart but even she fell to Rihanna in a final match up.

So, like, when will we get a Rihanna/Demi Lovato duet? We already know that Lovato has the pipes to sing with Rihanna because of her covers.

The Island of Guava may have been born out of the mind of Donald Glover, it’s creator, but for Afro-Latinos it is a real place. “Guava Island,”, out now on Amazon, was a concept written by Glover, his brother Stephen, and developed by director Hiro Murai. It made its premiere at the Coachella Arts and Music Festival, and now that’s out to the general public, people have lots of thoughts about this so-called fictional island.

The film, completely shot in Cuba, tells the story of two loves played by Glover and Rihanna is being hailed as a short version of “Purple Rain” because it incorporates original music and love. It’s also so much more than that.

Audiences are loving how Glover perfectly captured the Afro-Latino culture.

Did we mention there’s Spanish in the movie? Oh yes there is.

Afro-Latinidad is not one type of person.

That’s the beauty of the Latino culture, it’s really so many types of people.

Oh, should we discuss Rihanna’s beauty and all that incredible fashion?

Rihanna’s talent and her colorful style in the movie is by far as important as the island and music itself.

Of course, tons of people mused over a chance to visit the island.

So sad not all of us can go!

Now we know what they were doing in Cuba.

For a second there we thought they were on vacation.

Rihanna loved filming the movie in Cuba, by the way.

So much good music too!

You will be dancing while watching it no doubt.

You can still watch it now!

But just be aware, it’s not all fun and games, so grab a tissue. The ending is everything.

Here’s How The Internet Reacted When Demi Lovato Tweeted About The 21 Savage Controversy

Here’s How The Internet Reacted When Demi Lovato Tweeted About The 21 Savage Controversy

ddlovato / Instagram

We all know Demi Lovato is just six months sober from a major overdose in July 2018. She’s spent 90 days in rehab, out of the public eye, and has been slowing returning to social media. First, it started out with Instagram likes and gradually progressed to the singer calling out body-shaming gaming app advertisements on the platform.

Now, the international icon has deleted her Twitter platform after users assumed the worst in her and started attacking her mental health struggles. Lovato took to her Instagram stories to explain exactly what went down.

It all started when rapper 21 Savage was arrested by ICE for deportation.

The whole internet was shook to learn that 21 Savage was even British to begin with. The rapper entered the US legally in 2005 but has allegedly failed to renew his visa to legally stay in the country.

“So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”

Lovato tweeted and then quickly deleted the tweet after people starting attacking her past drug use. Before deleting her account, she parted with these words, “If you’re gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me for something original and not involving drugs.”

Lovato was quick to get the story straight, however.

Get it? Because who knew that 21 Savage was British and do they even have pens over there yet? Let the record show that the whole internet was already laughing at this.

And quick to call out the truly barbaric attacks she was receiving.

“Go shoot some more heroine Demi”? Really? It is never okay to bully someone for mental health problems.

Lovato is known for being vulnerable and honest about her battles with addiction.

Her fanbase is so big and devoted because of that vulnerability. Lovato has always taken us all along for the ride.

That vulnerability made her a quick target.

It’s hard enough to overcome an addiction in private. We can’t imagine how difficult it must be as a public figure.

People shouldn’t be directing their anger with ICE at Demi Lovato.

Understandably, the immigrant community and its allies have well-deserved anger and resentment towards the free range that ICE as a federal agency receives. They’re the ones separating children from their families without any intent or means to reunite them.

Because, really, there’s no excuse for this kind of dangerous behavior.

And yet, all that ugly that ICE brings to the table doesn’t permit ugly to be dished out at other vulnerable populations. Haven’t we been educated enough to arrive at the scientific consensus that addiction and alcoholism is a disease? Nobody is cracking lupus jokes at Selena Gomez.

Could Lovato have provided some compassionate context?

Completely out of the context of her personality, you could question what she was referring to. But we do know the context, and Lovato isn’t AOC. She’s perusing the Twitterverse like everyone else.

Even Wale came out to throw shade at Lovato.

At first, he just replied to her saying, “Why is somebody freedom funny…I don’t get the joke.” Lovato’s now deleted response was, “Wale just salty I never replied to his desperate tweets years ago.”

Wale responded, “Still ain’t gon disrespect you…still praying for you Demi. Glad u seen my old tweets. Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don’t kick people when they down. Go queen.”

Lovato spells it out crystal clear:

Wale kept going, but, understandably, Lovato wants to keep the conversation more private. Being a celebrity sounds terrible.

Some celebrities have come out to support Demi.

In an Instagram live stream, Tory Lanez pulled for Demi. “I’m not feeling this whole coming for Demi Lovato thing B, I’m not feeling it. I’m not feeling it. Some n***as really don’t watch the Super Bowl my n***a? And I’m not gonna lie that shit is wild entertaining n***a. I’m not for this whole coming for Demi Lovato thing.”

And now, there are even memes about the meme scandal. #TheInternet

It’s crazy how that went from 0 to 100 real quick. Demi laughed alongside The Internet at a truly non-offensive meme and now she’s canceled Twitter.

Some of the memes are painfully accurate of how it went down.

I’m cringing. The internet calls out Demi for laughing at one element of an otherwise traumatic event, and the internet responds by wielding her own trauma as the butt of a joke. Cool.

Even if your racist tio tweeted that meme, you’d probably let it slide.

You have to pick your battles, right? And making fun of British quills ain’t mierda compared to everything else out there. Not even relatively speaking, is the meme offensive.

Our societal double standards around drug addiction need to change.

I’d also like to point out how sexism allows people to subconsciously respect one man’s addiction and use a woman’s addiction as a ‘flaw.’ We can do better.

Meanwhile, the internet has largely left this one alone.

Tomi Lahren is still on Twitter?! Excuse me?! Where the trolls at?

Except for Cardi B. She’s revving up for a dog walk.

If you missed the epic interchange between Cardi B and conservative pundit Tomi Lahren, let’s just say that Lahren tried it with Cardi B but Cardi B shut her down hard.

Now we’ve lost our Twitter privileges with Demi.

We don’t know how long she’ll be breaking from Twitter, but we hope it’s not long. Since she’s been back on social media, she’s rallied her fan base to petition Instagram to remove advertisements for a hugely problematic body shaming game.

It’s agreed that Lovato, nor anyone else, deserves to be bullied.

The internet is a place where bullying can run rampant. It those times, if you are exepriencing or witnessing bullying that affects you, it is important to know that you can walk away. Silence the notifications, put the phone down, and take time for yourself.
