Demi Lovato Talks about Being “Sober in Moderation”

demi lovato paper cover

Demi Lovato is a beautiful alien on the cover of Paper. In the interview, she talks about the ups and downs of the past year (“At one point I was engaged to a man, and now I’m very much not. And so I just wanted to allow myself the freedom to match my outside to what I feel like on the inside, and that’s what I’ve done”), dealing with negative press (“I think it was right after I got out of rehab in 2018. I saw an article somewhere that said I was morbidly obese, and that is the most triggering thing that you could possibly write about somebody with an eating disorder. That sucked, and I wanted to quit, I wanted to use, wanted to give up”), and says she is no longer wholly sober (“It’s just really important to note that just because I am trying this doesn’t mean it’s for everybody. Just like the dogmatic views of complete sobriety, that isn’t a one size fits all solution for everybody”).

-Reviews of the first two episodes of her docuseries (which dropped this week on Youtube, while the final two will debut in a couple of weeks) praise Lovato for her candor.

Noah Centineo took to social media to flaunt his muscle gains in preparation for his upcoming superhero role. This feels like… too much?

Chris Evans showed off his chest tattoos during interview and the internet went wild. Weirdly, this doesn’t feel like too much? I don’t make the rules, guys.

Meghan McCain continues to be the least self-aware person ever, saying on The View today: “We’ve only had one Asian American host co-host host this show. Does that mean one of us should be leaving because there’s not enough representation? We’re talking about — is identity politics more important than the qualifications for the job?” She knows the only reason she got that gig was because of who her father was, right? She has the opposite of imposter syndrome.

Prince Harry keeps getting new jobs. Today he was named one of 15 commissioners joining Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder team.

-Oh god. It turns out the Synder cut isn’t exactly the cut he wanted, because Zack Synder wanted the final scene of the four-hour comic to feature the Green Lantern John Stewart and not the Martian Manhunter, and that he filmed the new Green Lantern scene in his driveway last year during the pandemic with “an amazing actor” but the studio took it out. I’m so tired.

-Most of the Glee cast (minus Lea Michele) will come together for a tribute to the late Naya Rivera at the GLAAD Media Awards — with Demi Lovato set to introduce it.

Issa Rae just inked an eight-figure, five-year deal with WarnerMedia, keeping her in the HBO fam.

-People are really hating on Chrissy Teigen‘s new business venture.

David Duchovny is heading back to Showtime as a series lead, this time for an adaptation of his latest novel.

-Splash News and Picture Agency, one of Hollywood’s biggest paparazzi agencies is filing for bankruptcy. Despite some headlines, it’s not because Meghan Markle sued them for invading a ‘private family outing’ in Canada last year.

Dana Carvey‘s Biden impression is excellent.

Miley Cyrus penned a sweet letter to her Hannah Montana character in honour of the 15th anniversary of the show’s premiere.

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny Discuss X Files’ Return

x-files-tv-guide

-I can’t stop looking at Gillian Anderson‘s wig and David Duchovny’s eyes on the cover of TV Guide. It’s going to distract me during the whole upcoming season, isn’t it? In the interview, they talk about William, their characters’ complicated relationship, and what comes next.

-Congrats to Mindy Kaling, who welcomed her first child, a baby girl she called Katherine. I love the normal name, and I especially love that she feels no need to tell us who the baby’s father is.

Janet Jackson is  back together with Jermaine Dupri? It’s a Christmas miracle!

Vanessa Hudgens isn’t engaged, she just wanted to show off her new haircut and didn’t realize the world would focus on the giant rock on her finger.

-The floodgates have opened when it comes to bad TJ Miller stories. A transgender movie critic revealed an angry email from him, a woman told a story about him acting so shady a bartender wouldn’t let her have the drink he was hovering around, and adult film star Dana DeArmond has accused Miller and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts of sexual harassment on the set of Comedy Central’s Mash Up.

-Meanwhile, Miller’s The Gorburger Show has been canceled by Comedy Central (though a network rep claims that the decision predated the allegations, with one source noting it happened as far back as July).

-Last week, the Today Show beat Good Morning America for the third week in a row — which lines up directly with how long Matt Lauer has been gone from the show. Meanwhile, CBS This Morning has held steady in the ratings since Charlie Rose‘s departure.  It’s almost as if these garbage men weren’t worth the millions they were being paid.

-Just because the world can’t stop blaming women for men’s predatory behaviour, Meryl Streep is being targeted by street artists with “She knew” posters. Someone wake me up when they use Matt Damon’s image instead.

Christian Bale says Hollywood would be better if “white dudes” weren’t in charge of anything. Well, at the very least there would probably be less actors who feel free to aggressively yell at hapless crew members in a long, expletive-laden rant for daring to walk in their eyeline. Or actors who are arrested for assaulting their mother and sister.  Sit down, sir.

Mark Ruffalo just bought the world a coffee. I love him.

-I really liked this Twitter thread, which pushes back on The Last Jedi’s backlash.

Anna Kendrick remembers having to style herself for the Toronto premiere of Up In The Air. “I was not famous so no one wanted to lend me shoes to wear, but I was broke so I couldn’t buy the shoes. I got talked into spending the money I really didn’t have on a pair of Louboutins. I never wear them but I will never get rid of them because I’m like ‘I spent my rent money on you!'”

-The former Pentagon official profiled in the NYT’s insane article about the secret branch of gov’t investigating UFOs is now working for Blink 182’s Tom Delonge. What is 2017??
