Demi Lovato Opens Up about Sexuality, Broken Engagement

demi lovato glamour

Demi Lovato covers Glamour to promote her upcoming Youtube documentary and talked about her past issues with food (“I was excited that I was in a comfortable place in my body to show more skin, but what I was doing to myself was so unhealthy”), her sexuality (“I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am”), her broken engagement (“Because I denied my intuition of all the red flags that had popped up, I had no one else to blame but myself”), and her new outlook on life (“I am now making choices—for the day, and then the future—about what it is I want and what’s going to make me the happiest”).

Michael B Jordan got zen for his Men’s Health cover story.

-In Selena Gomez‘s Vogue cover story, she says she’s not done with music — yet. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously. I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ “Lose You to Love Me” I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”

-A Deux Moi blind was posted yesterday about how the first of the Armie Hammer articles would drop today, and it ended up being from Vanity Fair. It’s a good deep dive into his family’s messed up history (including an eye-popping tidbit about how his dad has a sex chair with the family crest on the seat), but when it gets to Armie himself, it goes pretty easy on him. There’s four different quotes from anonymous friends of his dismissing the allegations as simply a kink or evidence of his “dry sense of humour,” and casting suspicions on his estranged wife about the timing of the leaked DMs (despite the fact that she’s seemed remarkably restrained, considering). It also seems to downplay the allegations of assault/abuse his recent exes Paige Lorenze and Courtney Vucekovich have leveled elsewhere.

-It’s interesting to see how the royal family is responding to the Oprah interview. Prince Charles hasn’t officially said anything, though his camp tells Vanity Fair he’s “devastated” because “he feels let down by them both. There is not a racist bone in his body and to suggest otherwise is very hurtful.” Prince William was more direct about going on the defensive, telling the media “We’re very much not a racist family” and that he still hasn’t talked to Harry about it.

-In a new Harper’s Bazaar’s article Omid Scobie quotes from an email he claims that Meghan Markle sent about not making Kate Middleton cry over flower girl dresses. “Well, if we’re just throwing any statement out there now, then perhaps KP can finally set the record straight about me [not making her cry],” she reportedly wrote to an aide.

-Harry Potter’s Katie Leung says publicists instructed her to pretend she wasn’t the target of racist vitriol by fans while playing Cho Chang in the films. “I remember them saying to me… ‘just say it’s, say it’s not true, say it’s not happening.'”

-Oh god, Matthew McConaughey is rumbling about going into politics.

-I had no idea there was a spinoff of The Boys in the works, but I’m here for it.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas will announce the Oscar nominees on Monday morning. Seems like an odd choice but ok.

Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs‘ house is featured in Architecture Digest and it’s so colourful and fun.

Adam McKay is the executive producer on a new HBO doc about QAn*n. Here’s the first trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for Anya Taylor-Joy and Finn Cole‘s new film, Here Are The Young Men.

Jennifer Lopez Gets Naked For Her New Song

Jennifer Lopez showed off the cover art for her latest single, and it’s a pic of her in the buff shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. I didn’t think singles got the cover art treatment, but if I looked like this I guess I’d be looking for any excuse, too.

The Weeknd called the Grammys out for his nomination shut out (and Nicki Minaj backed him up). There’s some speculation that the Grammys wanted him to perform on their show and not the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which airs just a week later, but the Academy CEO insists that’s not the case.

Chris Evans posted a video of himself playing piano while wearing a chunky sweater. Vulture says he’s “adopting the persona of a jock who’s having an emotional crisis in the third act of a high-school movie” but I’m not complaining.

-In a deeply personal NYT op-ed, Meghan Markle revealed she suffered a miscarriage in July. Not only is her op-ed incredibly moving, it helps to break down the stigma surrounding talking about miscarriages. I didn’t realize until I started doing some social media work for a fertility clinic that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. That’s an insane stat, and people rarely talk about it. Besides it being very well-written, I also liked how her essay clearly positions her as a hands-on mom, with all the talk of diaper changes and picking up crayons and socks.

Christina Perri also revealed she and husband have lost their baby girl in a stillbirth.

Prince Charles and Camilla both deactivated the replies on their tweets, and there’s speculation it’s because of the heat they’re getting from their depiction on this season of The Crown. The show truly has given up on engendering any audience sympathy for him in these new episodes.

-Cdn gossip columnist Shinan Govani tweeted about the Jessica Mulroney story in Page Six, and just now tweeted an apology to her “as requested“. Well.

-The NYT’s list of the 25 greatest actors of the 21st century (so far) caused a bit of debate on Twitter. There are certainly some snubs but I like how diverse it is. I especially appreciate the callout for Melissa McCarthy in Spy.

Timothée Chalamet, Jason Bateman and Kristen Wiig are set to host the remaining SNL episodes of the year. Morgan Wallen will also get a second chance at being a musical guest.

-The cast of the 90210 reboot got together to reminisce about their behind-the-scenes dramaAnnaLynne McCord admitted to the rumoured tension with Shenae Grimes Beech: “I wanted to strangle that chick. I’m so grateful that in the last 24 hours of [shooting] 90210, Shenae and I fully repaired our relationship issues. I ended up at her wedding in England!”

-As if his album documentary In Wonder on Netflix wasn’t enough, Shawn Mendes surprise-dropped a second film this week — this one a concert film.

-Meanwhile, Shawn shared his view of his Toronto condo in his Netflix film, and the scene is agonizingly familiar to anyone who lives here.

-I follow a lot of romance writers on Twitter for some reason, and what they’ve been doing to mobilize voters in solidarity with Stacey Abrams has been nothing short of remarkable.

-Speaking of people doing good, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have donated $500,000 to Covenant House in Vancouver and Toronto.

-The trailer for the live-action Clifford the Big Red Dog debuted by Paramount Pictures today and everyone is freaked out by how sick the dog looks.

-The trailer for Life In A Year, starring Cara Delevingne and Jaden Smith, has dropped. These “sick-lit” dramas are never going away, huh?

 

Schitt’s Creek Checks Out

Schitts Creek finale

-I’m not ready for Schitt’s Creek to be over (like, literally — I still have half a season to catch up on), but EW’s cover story with Dan Levy and Noah Reid is beautiful.

Rihanna and Drake were interacting in the comments of DJ Spades’ Instagram Live and when he got too complimentary of her, she wrote “Give Drake some water.” Absolute perfection.

Ariana Grande and her new bf are sheltering-in-place together.  TMZ calls him “a high end real estate agent who handles multi-million dollar listings for L.A.’s A-list buyers” so hopefully he’s found them a good place to hunker down.

-Outlander star Sam Heughan is getting dragged for posting photos from his Hawaii vacation in the middle of a pandemic. Seriously celebrities, just put down your phones. You’re all sucking at this.

Prince Charles has tested positive for covid-19 but is only displaying mild symptoms.

-In other royals news, The Sun continues to stoop low by stirring up rumours about Prince Harry and ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.

-Good hometown boy Shawn Mendes is donating $175,000 to Sick Kids in Toronto to assist in purchasing equipment and supplies for coronavirus preparedness.

Kylie Jenner is also stepping up in a big way, donating $1 million to buy PPE.

Ryan Reynolds is donating 30% of his Aviation gin profits to out of work bartenders.

-Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian’s 10-year-old son said on Instagram that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not back together — and then his account promptly got shut down because 10-year-olds are not supposed to be on Insta.

-I love that Jennifer Garner keeps shouting out Victor Garber. Spy daddy!

Chrissy Tiegan needed lettuce so she met up with some strangers in a church parking lot and traded cake, wine and banana bread for three heads of romaine. It was incredibly cute.

Maggie Grace responded to Lost costar Evangeline Lilly‘s Instagram post and whew, the shade!

-Here’s a bit of brightness in our current sea of suck: Bindy Irwin got married.

-I had never heard of Netflix’s new documentary Tiger King a couple of days ago, and now it’s EVERYWHERE. People are obsessed. I have to watch this thing, don’t I?

-The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln serenaded Danai Gurira to celebrate her last episode.

-While talking to Variety, novelist and showrunner Michael Chabon went off on a tangent about what he originally wanted Picard to be like, and as someone who has given up on that show, oh how I wish he’d have stuck with it: “I always said if we could have just done a whole show about Picard and the dog on the vineyard in France, with no starships, no phasers, the only Romulans would be those two Romulans who work for him on the vineyard, and no politics — just, like, there’s a funfair down in the village and they all go, and maybe Picard solves a very low stakes mystery in the village, like, someone has stolen the antique bell out of the bell tower, or something like that?”

Chris Evans plays a man trying to shield his son from a murder rap in the trailer for Apple TV+’s upcoming show Defending Jacob.
