Demi Lovato was the grand marshal at the L.A. Pride parade on Sunday, and not only was she the queen bee, but she also gave one heck of a performance!
"Happy @LApride Day to my #Lgbt brothers & sisters!" she tweeted. "So proud to be a part of today's festivities... Get there early!!... #Lapride #EqualLove." Lovato was presented with a large gold key to thank her for her work in the LGBT community, and she said in a statement, "I have been an active advocate of the LGBT community and am wholly committed to supporting individuality and being comfortable in one’s own skin. I am thrilled to be a part of both events as they are a wonderful celebration of independence and self-confidence.”
The 21-year-old singer closed the parade with her hit single "Really Don’t Care," and she also revealed that she's using footage from the performance in the music video for the song.
We knew this was coming!
After Lady Gaga had a "vomit painter" puke on her during a concert at the SXSW music festival, Demi Lovato took to her Twitter to slam the pop star for promoting bulimia.
Demi wrote, "Sad. As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eating disorders already. Bottom line, it's not 'cool' or 'artsy' at all. Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you. Addiction is addiction."
"All I'm saying is, artists in pop culture have influence on people. Young people who are struggling to figure out their identities are seriously influenced by the things they see their idols do. Whether we intend to or not, artists influence people of ALL ages and unfortunately what people see, people do. Hair, clothes and sometimes misinterpreting things, therefore using the excuse of art to engage in self-destructive behaviors. I've been through a sh*t ton.. More than any of you know. People emulate what they see celebrities do or let happen. And that's why I had to say something.. to let the people who don't understand the art in it, that bulimia isn't cool, and it won't get you on stage with your favorite artist."
Lovato entered rehab in October 2010 to seek treatment for "physical and emotional issues," and she's since been very public about her struggles with eating disorders, cutting and drug use. And this isn't the first time she's done this -- back in 2011 Lovato went after Disney for making a joke on the TV show Shake It Up. "I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress' from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about that very disease. #nice," she said at the time.
Still, Demi doesn't want to totally diss Gaga. "No hate, no shade, just love," she concluded. "You're SO talented, if not one of the most talented in our industry PERIOD. Dope is INCREDIBLE.. but you don't have to do that. Ps. I'm still a little monster myself."
Neon pink hair and lipstick for her Neon Lights tour? Why not!
On Monday evening Demi Lovato took a break from her concert schedule and made an appearance on The Tonight Show, and she was all smiles when X17 photographers snapped her at the studio.
Tonight Demi will perform at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, and after 11 more dates in North America, she'll take a brief break and head to South and Central America before closing out her tour on May 17.
Back in December the 21-year-old starlet announced that she was leaving her judging gig on The X Factor, but it sounds like focusing on her music has been a better move for her. "Such a fun show tonight.. Day 1 of 2 SOLD-OUT SHOWS HERE IN CT!!!!!!" she tweeted the other day after her concert in Connecticut. "I love you guys!!!!!"
We know this is the latest trend, but the grow out process can't be fun!
Demi Lovato is known for changing up her look quite frequently, and this time the former X-Factor host decided to shave half of her pink tresses off!
"IDGAF #NEONLIGHTSTOUR," she captioned a snapshot she shared on Twitter.
In case you didn't know, "IDGAF" stands for "I don't give a f**k"!
The singer is current on her tour, which kicked off in Vancouver on February 9. Since the "Heart Attack" chanteuse is sober after her stint in rehab, she requires everyone working on her show to abstain from drugs and alcohol as well.
"Everyone on the team is required to stay clean and focused. It's not about trying to party. It's about putting on the best show and everyone needs to be in tip top shape. That's how it should be for every tour," she recently explained to Extra.
We wonder how rumored beau Wilmer Valderrama feels about her new 'do?!
Anytime a rock is on that finger, we have to wonder!
Demi Lovato made her way through LAX last night, and the diamond sparkler on her left ring finger was hard to miss!
Although her rep has denied she's set to tie the knot, rumors of an engagement to boyfriend Wilmer Valderamma started swirling after the "Skyscraper" singer tweeted a picture of herself wearing it with the caption, "Sooooo I don't think I've ever been happier in my life than this very moment that I am fully living in..."
The former X-Factor judge didn't help calm the whispers, either, when she posted a message gushing about her actor beau, who turned 34-years-old yesterday.
"To the funniest, most inspiring, incredible man I know.. @WValderrama - thank you for helping me get through my darkest moments.. You truly are a light to this world and to my life.. Happy Birthday!!!"
She could just want to keep the happy news private for a while?
Selena Gomez emerged for the first time since her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Thursday for D.U.I., resisting arrest and driving on a suspended license.
The former Disney stars met at West Hollywood hotspot Craig's for a cozy 5-star meal and, no doubt, for some chit chat about the Biebs.
Demi's been through lots of counseling over the years ... is Selena looking to the pink-haired pop star for advice?
Lookin' good girl!
Demi Lovato is gearing up to head out on the road for her tour, but she managed a little downtime and decided to share this pic of her relaxing on the beach in a swimsuit with her Instagram followers.
"2014... feeling healthy, feeling rested... Y'all ain't ready!!!! #NEONLIGHTSTOUR," she captioned the snapshot.
The former X-Factor judge has been intent on taking some time for herself lately, and after she skipped the People's Choice Awards last week, some fans were none too pleased!
"Damn... Just hopped online to check twitter and some "fans" are being really mean. I'm not at the PCA's because as I have stated before, I'm taking as much time off this month as possible. I haven't taken a substantial amount of time off in a long time and now I am. Thank you for those who voted and understand why I am away," she explained in response to her critics.
We applaud her for focusing on her well-being!
Demi Lovato will leave her judge's chair on The X Factor at the end of the current season, according to reports. Tonight is the first of a two-part finale for the third season of the talent show.
"She has a great time, but she's going to focus on her music next year," a source tells Us Weekly.
Lovato released her latest album, Demi in May, but hasn't toured in support of her recording yet.
The former Disney star judged the past two seasons of X Factor alongside Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio and, her boss, Simon Cowell.
