Demi Lovato Isn’t Afraid to Call You Out on Your Sh*t
Here’s a tip: Never let Demi Lovato hear you talk smack about her.
In the latest issue of Allure, in which the “Confident” singer graces the cover of, Lovato recalls clapping back at two girls after she overheard them complaining how they didn’t get a picture with her outside of her hotel. Calling that kind of behavior disrespectful, the 23-year-old says she then told her bodyguard to bring the fans inside so she can give them a piece of her mind.
“I don’t want to alienate my love life from the public, because it’s such a huge part of who I am,” she explains. “I can’t always let people in as much as they feel like they deserve to be let in.”
“I heard them start to talk, and one girl goes, ‘Oh, really? Are you shitting me, you’re just going to walk inside? You’re tired?'” Lovato remembers. “So I walked inside and called my security guard. I was like, ‘Go get that girl. Bring her in here.’ He brought the girls in. I said, ‘Listen, I’m so grateful that you guys come to the hotel and support me, and I never want you to feel like I take you for granted. But I cannot stop every single time, and that gives you no excuse to disrespect me…because I have too much respect for myself.’ I ended up taking a picture with her.”
She continues, “I didn’t want to be mean, just, like, ‘Hey, I’m a human, too.'”
However, Lovato admits that she sometimes unintentionally distances herself from her friends in th same interview — and its up to those around her like boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama to call her out on her own shenanigans.
“Wilmer is that person,” she says, adding that her BFF Marissa is another pal she can rely on.
“Sometimes I’ll isolate a little bit. I won’t reply to people’s text messages, or I’ll just distance myself from everyone unintentionally, and she’s the first one to call me out on it,” Lovato says. “It’s because I’m going through something. I’m stressed or depressed.”
