Demi Lovato Went to an AA Meeting After a Miserable Time at the Met Gala
Demi Lovato is smack in the middle of her Tell Me You Love Me Tour, but she took time out to talk to Billboard about a variety of topics. When it comes to telling fake friends from real friends, for example, Demi told the mag, “The people that aren’t willing to chill with you at home are the type of people that just want to be seen with you… When Ariana Grande and I hang out, it’s super chill.” Uhh, can we chill with these girls, too?
Demi is also close with Iggy Azalea, and said of her Australian rapper friend, “She’s super low-key; she doesn’t drink or party. She has struggled a lot…She’s very outspoken, and sometimes it can turn people off. But that’s one of the reasons I love her. She’s not the type of person who lies to you.”
And while Demi is naturally a part of the celeb scene and has graced red carpets all over, those over-the-top glamorous events are certainly not her favorite part of the biz. She explained that she had a miserable time at the 2016 Met Gala, which consequently led her to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting right after the event. “I had a terrible experience… This one celebrity was a complete b*tch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink.”
She then texted her manager, who encouraged her to go straight to a 10pm AA meeting after the gala. “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 d*ck.”
And speaking of Demi always speaking her truth, she also admitted to the mag that she’s still working on her insecurities, explaining, “I feel uncomfortable in my own skin… We live in a world where women feel pressure to look a certain way, and I fall victim to that sometimes. I feel like I have to dress a certain way to appeal to certain demographics. But actually, I don’t have to do that.”
