Fans Think Nicki Minaj Caused Demi Lovato to Go an AA Meeting
Was Nicki Minaj the reason why Demi Lovato went to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting after the Met Gala? Well, the world’s biggest group of amateur detectives (a.k.a the Internet) seems to think so.
It all started when the singer talked about her time at the 2016 Met Gala to Billboard and admitted that she “had a terrible experience.” Demi went on to explain, “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.”
Shortly after having that thought, the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer revealed she quickly changed her clothes (but kept the diamonds on because why not?) after leaving the event and attended an AA meeting at 10pm. If you didn’t think the people of the Internet would take out their magnifying glasses to figure out this mystery, then you’re obviously new to the World Wide Web. When a celebrity goes unnamed and there’s drama, it’s pretty much the Internet’s obligation to figure out who it is.
So, go grab some popcorn because we’re going back in time to try and put this rumor to rest. Back in 2016, Demi attended the Met Gala with designer Jeremy Scott and her Minajesty. After the carpet, Nicki shared a photo of the three on her Instagram, but only tagged Jeremy in the caption. Dems took note of what she assumed to be subtle shade and commented with a crying laughing emoji, a peace sign and a thumbs up.
Not long after THAT, the 25-year-old posted her own photo on Insta, except this one was a candid of Nicki side-eyeing her. “This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met #cool #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood,” she captioned the photo. THEN, Demi took to Snapchat to write on her filtered selfie, “When you aren’t mentioned in a post but didn’t do sh*t to the other person.”

It’s worth noting that after some speculation on Nicki and Demi’s friendship, she added to her Instagram caption, “P.S. some of y’all need to learn how to take a joke.. 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.”
And honestly, did anyone even stop to think that maybe Nicki didn’t know Demi’s IG handle? Anyway, it seems like the Internet is hell-bent on believing this theory that it’s Nicki, but let us remind you… there were a lot of other famous faces at the event, one of which many would describe as snakey… *insert side-eye emojis here*
