Demi Lovato Is Taking Steps To Recovery And Fans Are Showering Her With Love

Demi Lovato is back home after completing 90 days of in-patient treatment for her sobriety. Lovato has been open about her addiction and recovery for years now, and has helped humanize and destigmatize the disease. We know that she’s attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and very, very slowly stepping back into her life.

Lovatics are screaming for her return, so here are the breadcrumbs of what we know about her sobriety, where she’s been spotted around Los Angeles, and who she’s stanning on the gram.

The disease of addiction almost killed her in July.

Her assistant found her unconscious body with blood on her pillow and immediately thought she was dead. She was hospitalized for almost two weeks before she was released for her overdose.

This is the last photo she posted before overdosing.

That same night, we know that she overdosed and was taken to the hospital via ambulance. The 26-year-old eventually posted another photo thanking her fans and discussing her recovery but has since deleted it.

Last week, Demi posted for the first time in over three months urging her fans to get to the polls.

Caption: “I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!🗳 🇺🇸 now go out and #VOTE!!!!”

Lovato is starting fresh with a new phone number.

Needless to say, 70.5 million followers saw this and immediately DM’ed her. Clearly, she’s drawing personal boundaries from scratch and her fans are here for it.

Case in point:

TMZ has reported that Lovato is splitting her time between home and a sober house, which is quite common for strong addiction recovery facilities. There is no cure for addiction, but strong, clear accountability by professionals with strong support systems by other recovering alcoholics has been proven effective.

Lovato liked Christina Aguilera’s post promoting her Liberation tour.

Then, the Lovatics swarmed in on @xtina’s post. Literally the whole comment feed is full of folks celebrating Lovato’s return to social media.

The internet is thirsty for Lovato content.

It’s easy to be a fan and move on with your life without realizing that Lovato has been going through some serious physical and mental health recovery all along. She may be making a soft re-entry into social media, but she is still very vulnerable.

TMZ has reported that her ex, Valderrama has been a major support for her.

An insider told Us Weekly that, “Demi and Wilmer are still in constant communication,” and that they “speak over the phone pretty much every day and see each other often.” They haven’t been seen publicly yet.

Back in 2015, Lovato said that she “really wouldn’t be alive today without him,” according to the LA Times.

She captioned a photo celebrating her third year of sobriety saying, “He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober… After sharing my ups, putting up with my downs and supporting my recovery… he still never takes credit and I want the world to know how incredible his soul is.”

That said, she was spotted at a Japanese restaurant in Beverly Hills with designer Henry Levy.

A source told People that “Henry has been helping Demi stay on the right path.” You do you, boo.

She’s also been spotted hitting the gym and stopping by an office building.

A different People source added, “He has a bit of a troubled past as well, but is doing well now. He will be great at supporting Demi’s sobriety. He is kind of an eccentric guy, but sweet. Demi won’t be bored with him. He is very creative and passionate about life.”

These are the freshest photos of Demi in months and Lovatics are panicking.

Prepare yourself because what you are about to hear is going to make you very, VERY angry. You’ve been warned.

Some people have already started body shaming the recovering singer.

We’re not going to honor the trolls or the basura they spew by quoting anything here, but we will say that her fan base does not disappoint. Ejemplo: “Demi, the #lovatics love you. You look amazing. Please do not listen to these ignorant, mostly male, haters. God bless you.”

You’ve never looked better, mija.

This is what health looks like. I’ve never stanned harder.

While we don’t have as much Lovato content, at least we have each other. ❤️

“We got dragged together by Demi” 😂 It’s true. Her fearlessness, honesty and vulnerability in everything she does is the most compelling thing on the internet. During these dark times, we need Demi now more than ever.

Even though she’s been off social media for months, fans are blowing internet kisses.

We hope the only content she’s consuming is this.

So Demi, if you’re reading, here’s all the mushy content you need.

Raise your hand if you’re one of the Lovatics that are proud of her for prioritizing her health. When Lovato shows up for herself, she shows us all how to do the same.

Your health is all we’re looking at.

It’s hard because we miss you so much, but also know that all this attention is probably not what you need right now. We’re shipping you all the positive energy to keep that healthy glow going.

Some of us are getting tatted to show her support.

Lovato’s last post had said, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

Stay strong, Demi.

Demi, we see you, we’re here for you, y te amos.

Haters? What haters? All we see is love y respecto for this process you’re going through. When you’re ready for the onslaught of love, you know where to go.

Kali Uchis’s “Solita” Is The Sexy And Empowering Reggaeton Song You Need To Get Over Your Ex

Kali Uchis’s “Solita” Is The Sexy And Empowering Reggaeton Song You Need To Get Over Your Ex

kaliuchis / Instagram

Kali Uchis’s soulful voice has the whole world hypnotized. The Colombian-American’s songs embody female empowerment and strong womanhood, though Uchis says that’s coincidental. Empowerment has always been a recurrent theme in her music and now she’s back at it with her new release “Solita.”

Born in the United States but largely raised in Colombia, Kali Uchis’s music speaks of a multi-cultural conversation, a mosaic of influences, colors, and sounds.

Her debut album ‘Isolation’ made a huge impact on its 2018 release, the singer then hit the road for a tour of dazzling appearances.

“Bailando aquí sola, es mejor que con el diablo.”

Incoming single ‘Solita’ is her first blast of new material in 12 months, and it’s an ode to independence, to rejecting societal pressure to embrace a relationship; “Bailando aquí sola, es mejor que con el diablo.”

“Solita” is a song about the pleasures of being alone.

siempre sola . <3

A post shared by @ kaliuchis on

Her first drop in 12 months, this new material is a song all about that classic Latino saying that goes a little like: “Mas vale sol@ que mal acompañad@.“ On the pleasures of being alone, Kali says, “I’d rather dance alone than with the devil. This song is about healing, freedom and embracing the mixed emotions that come with that. I hope my fans feel sexy when they listen to it. I’m so excited to share more…”

Uchis’s new single is a mellow, sexy, reggaeton song.

Over a reggaetón beat, Uchis’s pained vocals announce that she’d rather be alone than stay with someone who hurts her. Embellished with croons and synth echoes, the song continues to show off her omnivorous approach to the genre.

The singer’s new single is her first bilingual single.

“Solita,” her first new music since 2018 and her first bilingual single. Describing a relationship raw with “open wounds,” as long as she stays, she’s suffocating: “Rooted in your ways/You won’t ever know, you won’t ever see/Who I am today.” She switches to Spanish for the chorus, affirming that her decision to leave is the right one, even if it hurts: “Bailando aquí sola, como a mi me gusta” (“Dancing here alone, as I like”). It’s better, she says, than dancing with the devil. With each aching repetition of the word “sola,” she braces for a future where she’ll be able to rely on herself.

The sultry track was produced by Tainy, who’s worked with J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

In an interview with Apple Music, she elaborated on the song: “The vibe was sad, yet horny. There’s a little bit of sexiness in it, but it’s also nostalgic. The hook basically translates to, ‘I’d rather dance alone than with the devil.’ I think that just goes back to wanting to feel empowered about independence, rather than feel like, ‘Oh, poor me, I’m alone.’ It’s not really like that.” She added, “I wrote the song a year ago. I was coming out of a breakup from a really long relationship. I think the song still resonates with me because I definitely look at relationships really differently.”

The Colombian-American singer has hinted at a Spanish album in the near future. 

“For my next album, I’m really going back to my roots, experimenting more with my music, not thinking so hard and not trying so hard — just free-flowing,” she said in an interview. The album would be predominantly in Spanish with some Spanglish, because that’s how Latinos live their everyday lives and we can’t wait to listen to the final result. “When I really want to say something that I feel I have to say in English, I will switch over because I’m not going to force it, but a lot of it will be in Spanish,” Uchis told People en Español. “Solita” is the first single off the album. “I’m at a point in my life where I don’t feel like I have to prove anything to anybody anymore. I’m growing every year.”

Kali Uchis wonders if she tried a little ‘too hard’ to prove herself in her debut album.

Reflecting on “Isolation”, Kali says she wonders if worrying about proving herself led her to overthink too much. “Looking back on it, I did tell true stories that were happening in my life on ‘Isolation,’ but I was a little too concerned about like, ‘This is my first album, I have to get the Gorillaz on it, Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, Tyler [the Creator], Bootsy [Collins].’ I felt like I had to pull everyone that I love into the project in order to prove myself as this genius.” 

She’s very proud of the result, nonetheless.

“Someone coming from where I come from would have never even thought I would be able to get all those different artists on a project and be able to make it sound like one cohesive project,” Uchis told People en Español. “Project is the best word for [Isolation] — it was an experiment.”

Now, she’s happy to feel less pressure when she’s in the studio.

Who else is ready for some new music from Kali Uchis?

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

@OceanPopNews/ Twitter

As you may know, on Tuesday Cardi B made an appearance at Queens Criminal Court to deal with the case of attempted assault on New York bartenders Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley. While Cardi immediately made headlines for her fashion-forward outfit that consisted of a large black coat decked out in feathers and a matching wide-brimmed hat, another member of her entourage was making headlines for an entirely different reason

Of the litany of paparazzi pictures documenting Cardi entering the courthouse, Cardi’s fans clocked the visage of a particularly handsome man closely following Cardi In the background  The gentleman in question was revealed to be Cardi B’s bodyguard, who goes by the name of Price. Wearing a black turtleneck, a gray blazer, and a trendy fisherman beanie, Mr. Price looked as if he just stepped out of a Calvin Klein ad.

As soon as the internet set their sights on Cardi’s bodyguard, all mention of her legal woes went out the window.

With his chiseled jawline, furrowed brow and pouty lips, it seems as if Price was born to become an internet thirst trap. His Instagram feed is chock-full of pictures of him smoldering for the camera, decked to the nines in stylish designer clothes. It’s safe to say that Price could have had a very successful career as a male model if he hadn’t pursued a career in security.

But based off of his social media activity, Price seems to be completely content with his current calling. According to his Instagram page, Price owns and operates Priceless Protection Services, a private security company that’s based out of Georgia. He frequently shares posts about how blessed he feels to have the job he does. On Cardi’s birthday, Price shared a photo of the two of them on his page, with a caption that read: “It’s an honor continuing to protect you and your family”.

Not only is Price a successful businessman, but he appears to be a devoted father as well.

Adorably enough, Price often shares photos of himself with his son, the most recent one being on Thanksgiving. He captioned the precious photo of him and his son: “He has me lost for words when I usually have so much to say”. No word yet on whether Price is single or taken (but we’re hoping for the former).

According to Price’s Instagram page, he is also a loyal employee. He appears to have a close relationship with his employer, frequently singing Cardi’s praises through effusive posts, like the most recent one congratulating Cardi for gracing the cover of Vogue. “You are 100% deserving of god‘s plan for your life,” he captioned under a photo of Cardi holding her baby, Kulture.

Considering the popularity of Cardi’s hot bodyguard, it could be possible that she hired him in order to detract attention from her frequent headline-making antics.

It should be noted that Cardi wasn’t visiting Queens Criminal Court for a lighthearted matter. The “I Like It” singer was attending a hearing related to the 2018 altercation she had with Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley outside of a New York strip club.

According to sources, Cardi tried to attack the Wattley sisters in retaliation for Jade’s romantic involvement with her husband, Offset. Cardi was charged and arrested in October 2018 for her involvement in the altercation, and earlier this year she pled not guilty to two felony counts of attempted assault as well as the lesser counts such of harassment, conspiracy, and reckless endangerment. In other words, Cardi is dealing with a lot right now.

Naturally, Twitter users couldn’t get enough of the tall, dark, and handsome Mr. Price.

People were shook that Cardi could be constantly surrounded by such a snack without giving into the temptation of…indulging.

This Twitter user decided to use the buzz around Cardi’s bodyguard to shoot her shot:

We can’t blame a girl for trying.

This girl decided to keep her love for price simple and to the point:

Join the club, chica.

This person had a brilliant idea after seeing pics of Cardi with Price:

We would even settle for a reality show at this point.

Some people had some spot-on jokes about how Offset should be watching his back:

Yes, we know Offset and Cardi have a solid relationship, but if there’s one thing that can sever a bond as strong as theirs, it’s a razor-sharp jawline.
