  • Did Demi Lovato Leave The Met Gala Because Nicki Minaj Bullied Her?

    Demi Lovato has come forward about a "terrible experience" that she had at 2016's Met Gala, the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute: one that forced her to leave the event early and almost relapse.

    Speaking to Billboard for her cover story, Lovato stated, "This one celebrity was a complete bitch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink." Lovato has famously been sober for five years, and has been candid about her struggles with depression, addiction, eating disorders and bipolar.

    Lovato texted her manager, then left the party early to attend a 10 p.m. Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. "I changed my clothes, but I still had my diamonds on -- millions of dollars of diamonds on in an AA meeting. And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala -- fake and sucking the fashion industry’s dick."

    While Lovato stayed mum on which celebrity she was talking about, it didn't take long for the Internet to put two and two together. Fans immediately remembered a post that Nicki Minaj had made on social media the night after the Met Gala, which featured herself alongside Lovato and designer Jeremy Scott. Minaj seemed to be throwing major side eye to Lovato, and conspicuously failed to tag her in the photo. Lovato later posted a similar photo, with the caption, "This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met [...] I'm obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life."

    Even though she tried to play it cool, Demi seemed a little shook over the whole affair, posting some blasé emojis on Nicki's post and taking to Snapchat to post, "When you aren't mentioned in the post but didn't do shit to the person".

    Demi and Nicki have both remained tight-lipped about the experience other than the social media posts in 2016 and the recent interview. For Demi fans, though, it's clear that Nicki was the celebrity being referred to.

    What do you make of the situation? Is Demi right to bring it up, or is this more celebrity drama she's manufacturing for promotion? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!

    I wouldn't be surprised honestly. :cackle: I still like Nicki but she definitely has a reputation for bitchiness, especially when it comes to ex-Disney stars. ;)

      Demi's last era is officially over, and her new single 'Sober' is out! I quite like the song but it's a bit of a transparent way to garner publicity. Still, I'm sure that if she serves us a couple of big live performances it could be successful!

      Barbie Tingz Changed It (Feat. Lil Wayne) Chun-Li No Frauds (Feat. Drake & Lil Wayne) Regret In Your Tears I just realised there was no thread for Nicki's upcoming album! Originally it was meant to be released next month but she's pushed it back to August, apparently to release a second single and finish up a documentary she's filming for the album. I haven't been blown away by any of the songs from this era yet but I'm looking forward to seeing what she has up her sleeve!

      Demi Lovato is facing backlash online following a "prank" that hoards of her fans are describing as sexual harassment.
      In a since deleted tweet Demi made on Sunday, she responded to a question from a fan asking about the best prank she's ever pulled. Demi replied with a story which involved her hiring a prostitute in Vegas to "surprise" her friend Max by walking into his room and touching his genitals without permission.

      It didn't take long for the tweets to start rolling in, with Lovato being accused of sexual harassment and insensitivity by hundreds of her onetime fans. In response, she returned to Twitter to apologise for what she called a "simple mistake", and to imply that she too had been abused.
      The song which Lovato refers to is 'Warrior', a track off her 2013 album DEMI. While fans have speculated for a while that it may be about her abusive father, the revelations of sexual abuse give a new twist to the lyrics, especially those in the bridge:
      While we sympathise with Demi, we wonder how she could make a mistake this obvious. "Pranks" about sexual abuse didn't warrant blinking up until a few years ago, but in the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp it's incredulous how she could not only organise the situation in the first place, but tweet it to millions of people afterwards.
      For the record, even though Demi described the "Max" in question as freaking out, he seemed totally unbothered by the prank in hindsight.
      What do you think of Demi's Twitter drama? Was it a harmless prank or something more sinister? Let us know in the comments down below!
