But it gets better.

Fifth Harmony and Demi Lovato realized they had so much in common, like standing up for positive body-image.

While on tour, Fifth Harmony found a solid role model in their fellow Tejana.

But this new squad wasn’t built for publicity and self-promotion. These girls have been sticking up for each other for years.

Demi Lovato Joked About Getting ‘Unengaged’ During Her People’s Choice Monologue And I’m Dead

Demi Lovato Joked About Getting ‘Unengaged’ During Her People’s Choice Monologue And I’m Dead

2020 hasn’t been just a big ball of suck for you.

Demi Lovato admitted over the weekend at Sunday’s E! People’s Choice Awards ceremony that the year has been a great big dumpster fire for her as well. While acting as host for the event of the evening, Lovato joked about being forced to take the strange and scary year in stride touching on everything from her Netflix binging choices and the end of her engagement with Max Ehrich.

While kicking off People’s Choice Awards, Lovato got real about her bizarre tunnel of quarantine love.

Just two months ago, Demi Lovato was an engaged woman. She and her former fiancé confirmed that they’d become engaged just two months after dating. Then, she announced that the pair had broken things off. Soon after, Ehrich revealed that he was having a difficult time with the engagement by addressing it various times on Instagram.

Demi, on the other hand, kept pretty mum about the break up for the most part. Recently she did drop a surprise song, which fans have speculated was about the end of their relationship, but for the most part, she’s been good about staying tight-lipped.

Still, it seems Demi can have a little bit of a laugh over the relationship.

At the start of her People’s Choice monologue, Lovato joked, “This year has been the longest three years of my life. Don’t get me wrong, it started out amazing. I performed at the Grammys, and sung ‘The National Anthem’ at the Super Bowl, but then COVID hit.”

Demi went onto share that she was quick to adapt to quarantine life. “I did what everyone else did,” she explained. “I went into lockdown mode and got engaged…tested the limits of Postmates Unlimited. I reached the end of Instagram four times. I binged seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars. Got unengaged, and then I went looking for aliens in the desert. So, basically the same as everyone else.”

While the singer never addressed what the rest of her year has in store but here’s hoping she’ll have more music for us soon!

Lauren Jauregui Says That the Imaginary Relationship That Fans Invented Between Her and Camila Cabello Was ‘Traumatizing’

Lauren Jauregui Says That the Imaginary Relationship That Fans Invented Between Her and Camila Cabello Was ‘Traumatizing’

Former Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui is opening up about a traumatic time in her life that affects the way she approaches romantic relationships to this day.

On Becky G‘s En La Sala podcast, Jauregui revealed that the imaginary relationships that fans “shipped” between her and Camila Cabello made her “disgustingly uncomfortable”.

As a background, “shipping” is an internet phenomenon in which fans want two people (either real or imagined) to get together in a romantic relationship. On the internet, “shipping” usually consists of fans producing art or other creative works to support their imagined storyline.

Jauregui and Cabello were the centerpiece of such a fandom. Fans even had an imagined portmanteau for the duo: “Camren”. Fans would interpret everything–a stray glance, a lingering hug, them dancing on stage together–as evidence that they were secretly dating. But the two women were never in a romantic relationship.

Jauregui–who now identifies as bisexual–explained that the rumors upset her so much for a myriad of reasons. First, she didn’t have romantic feelings towards Cabello. “Camila and I were just very good friends at that time,” she explained to Becky G. “And we respected each other. When each other would talk, we would look at each other. We had love for each other. Like, genuine friendship.”

Number two, Jauregui was aware that Cabello was not queer, and that fact further complicated things.

“It made me feel like a predator,” she said. “Because of the type of clips people would put together and the type of stories people would write and the type of stuff–I was always the aggressor and I was always the one turning her. I was always the one who was the ‘masculine’ energy in the scenario and it made me very uncomfortable because that is not how I identify.”

Jauregui also explains that the rumors were hard for her because, at the time, she wasn’t ready to come out publicly. “I wasn’t even comfortable with telling my parents about it,” she said. “I wasn’t even comfortable telling myself that I was queer.”

All of the speculation around her relationship with Cabello had lasting effects on her confidence with women.

“To this day I have an issue flirting with girls because I don’t want to make them think that I’m trying to invade or anything like that,” she revealed.

Jauregui went on to say that she doesn’t usually talk about that time of her life in public because it was “so traumatizing” for her. “I just chose to ignore it at a certain point, because getting angry to [those fans] would mean that it was real and validated it more for them. So I was like, okay, then I can’t get angry or defend myself, apparently, because that just makes it more real [for them]. It just really f—– with my head.”

Lauren Jauregui’s revelation is just another example of how fans can sometimes forget that celebrities are people too. Unfortunately, Jauregui experienced trauma at the hands of people who probably thought the entire thing was just fun and games.
