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.

The Weeknd Talks Grammy Snub

The Weeknd is still all up in his feels about his Grammy snub. Calling it “an attack,” he tells Billboard: “I use a sucker punch as an analogy. Because it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I definitely felt … I felt things. I don’t know if it was sadness or anger. I think it was just confusion. I just wanted answers. Like, ‘What happened?'” He added that the three previous Grammy Awards he’s won “mean nothing” to him now.

Taylor Swift fans are feeling a little duped today: a rumour of new music turned out to be re-packaged previous releases.

Armie Hammer has exited the upcoming TV series The Offer, which tells the behind the scenes story of the making of The Godfather. This was a really buzzy project — one wonders if he’s just laying low because of what’s already being talked about, or if he’s bracing for more.

-Wow. Call Me By Your Name’s Luca Guadagnino and Timothée Chalamet are eyeing a reunion for the coming-of-age horror story Bones & All, which is — wait for it — a cannibal love story. I’m not joking.

Zendaya is defending the 12-year age gap between her and her Malcolm & Marie costar John David Washington: “People often forget — which is understandable because I’ve been playing 16 since I was 16, you know — [but] I am grown. I knew that, as I grow and as I evolve, there would be that moment where I could play someone my own age.”

Zendaya also let it slip that her Spider-Man 3 character will be “running from aliens.” Sigh. How has MCU not yet grasped that the beauty of the Spider-Man movies is that they’re about a high school kid dealing with neighborhood baddies. The smaller stakes is why Homecoming was so great.

-This is a very good piece on how the MCU has conditioned its audience not to accept change. There’s a great show to be had in WandaVision if the whole thing is a construct she’s created to cope with her grief, but I’d be surprised if it goes that way. And we barely got three episodes of “what the heck is going on?” weirdness before they’re feeling the need to shift into explaining.

Trevor Noah explained the GameStop stock drama as if he were a bubbly Margot Robbie in The Big Short.

-Netflix confirmed that Lupin’s remaining 5 episodes will debut this summer.

Their source claims they broke up because she wants kids and he wasn’t willing to commit to it.

-I’m not sure how amicable it all can be when Ben Affleck had de Armas’ life-size cardboard cutout tossed in the trash in full view of the paparazzi.

-Still, sources are claiming a reconciliation is entirely possible.

-Meanwhile, these are clearly breakup bangs.

Dua Lipa is sorry that her random emoji smashing made everyone think she’s pregnant.

Miley Cyrus overshared in a new interview, offering her opinion on penises: “It’s good if it can just get in and go away, because I don’t want it eyeing me up. That’s truly how I feel…Everyone knows that tits are prettier than balls.”

-All five seasons of the original Muppet Show is coming to Disney+, including two seasons that have never been released on home video.

-It’s kind of wild to me that Freaks and Geeks is going to air on Hulu with the show’s original soundtrack. That must have been an insane music licensing deal. I guess that’s one way for 80s bands to keep making money.
