And she’s been so badass that she received 2015 Billboard’s Rulebreaker Award.

But when she’s not singing her heart out she’s busy speaking her mind – and by that we mean throwing some real good SHADE.

But don’t get her wrong, she wasn’t throwing any mean shade at Miley Cyrus.

But that wasn’t the case when she called out certain mean female pop-artists.

In an interview for Cosmo’s September’s issue, Lovato had a few words for some undisclosed singers: “There are a lot of girls in pop. They have badass lyrics, but I feel like I’m the only person other than Rihanna and Nicki Minaj who isn’t afraid to say, ‘Try something on me and I’ll fucking beat your ass.’ There are people who can dress up and play the part, but their music doesn’t say it.”

Oh, and what about that time she called out Starbucks!

Or all those times she reminded everyone that body shaming is lame.

She’s also quick to back up her friends, so don’t mess with her new bestie, Iggy Azalea.

Despite the harsh criticism Azalea has endured this year, Lovato proudly stands by her side. “She’s very, very, very real. What you see is what you get. I think sometimes that pushes people away, but that’s what I admire about her. She’s the furthest thing from fake. In this entertainment business, that’s so hard to find with anybody,” she told Complex magazine.

We hear ya, Demi.

Exes Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato Are Playing Soulmates in Netflix’s Animated Movie Charming and Talk About Awkward

Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato don’t let a little thing like emotional baggage get in the way of their careers. The famous former couple proved that exes can actually be friends when they worked together on the new Netflix animated movie, “Charming”, that premiered on Friday.

Not only did Lovato and Valderrama co-star in the children’s movie together, but they played lovers. And not just lovers, but soulmates.

It looks like Lovato and Valderrama truly decided to remain friendly and supportive of each other after their breakup in 2016. Which in itself is a rarity!

In “Charming”, Valderrama voices a spoiled Prince who is “cursed” to have every woman fall in love-at-first sight with him until his 21st birthday.

When the project was announced in 2015, Valderrama was extremely excited about the opportunity to represent greater diversity in a children’s movie. “We’ve all been waiting so long to see a Latin princess represented in an animated fairy tale,” he told Deadline. “I’m grateful to the enlightened producer John Williams for anointing me as the first Latin prince.”

Lovato plays a Lenore, a savvy street urchin who is also cursed to never find love. Together, the unlikely duo are tasked with going on a quest to break Charming’s curse so he can save the kingdom.

When discussing their previous relationship in the past, Lovato and Valderrama have been nothing but gracious.

In fact, Demi Lovato recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s happy for Valderrama and his new fiancée, Amanda Pacheco. “I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time,” she admitted.

She continued: “But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don’t really get to learn about yourself.”

When Lovato has talked about the reasons behind their split before, she’s always maintained that it had “nothing to do with falling out of love”.

“The sparks never faded, but there are issues that I haven’t conquered yet that I know I won’t conquer if I’m relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness,” said Lovato in her 2017 documentary, “Simply Complicated”.

But Lovato and Valderrama aren’t the only reason to queue up this flick. The movie also stars Ashley Tisdale as Cinderella, Avril Lavigne as Snow White, and Chinese popstar phenomenon G.E.M. as Sleeping Beauty.

Naya Rivera Was Remembered In A Touching Tribute Featuring The Beatles’ ‘Here Comes The Sun’ By Demi Lovato

FOX

Months have passed with quite a few additional ups and downs but Demi Lovato hasn’t forgotten about her late friend and former Glee costar, Naya Rivera. Five months after Rivera’s body was found following a disappearance during a boating trip with her son, Lovato paid a tribute to the actress on Instagram.

In a post shared to her Instagram story on Sunday, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, remembered Rivera in a video.

Lovato shared a video of the gleaming sun while she was on a hike and captioned the video “Miss You [Naya Rivera].” In a reference to a song that Lovato sang with Rivera, the singer played a clip of The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” in the background.

Lovato and Rivera’s characters (Dani and Santana Lopez) fell in love after singing “Here Comes the Sun” during a shift at a diner in the fifth season of the musical drama series.

Rivera’s body was found in Lake Piru in Ventura County, California on July 13.

Her body was found five days after she disappeared during a boat excursion with her 5-year-old son Josey. Soon after Rivera was found, Lovato reflected on her costar writing that she would “forever cherish” her role as Rivera’s girlfriend on the series.

“RIP Naya Rivera. I’ll forever cherish the opportunity to play your girlfriend on Glee,” Lovato wrote on Instagram at the time. “The character you played was groundbreaking for tons of closeted queer girls (like me at the time) and open queer girls, and your ambition and accomplishments were inspiring to Latina women all over the world.”

“My heart goes out to your loved ones at this time.. ❤️🕊,” she wrote at the end of her caption.
