- Demi Lovato spoke to Jameela Jamil about the #DemiIsOverParty Twitter hashtag that started after her alleged anti-Selena Gomez finsta was uncovered.
- She doesn’t think cancel culture is actually real.
Days after #DemiIsOverParty started trending on Twitter because fans thought they discovered Demi Lovato’s finsta account dragging Selena Gomez, the “Anyone” singer opened up about cancel culture. But before you go “cancel culture isn’t even real!,” Demi knows that and does think some people should “stay canceled.”
Talking to Jameela Jamil, Demi was like, “I’ve been canceled so many times that I can’t even count.” She then mentioned the hashtag, and while she didn’t confirm or deny if that burner Instagram account was real, she did say, “The hashtag, #DemiIsOverParty, that whole thing it’s just, like, it doesn’t even affect me anymore. So one, it’s just not real.”
Then she schooled everyone who thinks cancel culture has had unwarranted negative consequences for people’s careers and said, “I don’t think that anybody was ever officially canceled, otherwise certain people wouldn’t have Grammys today, certain people wouldn’t have Oscars, and certain people wouldn’t be where they are in their positions.” Preach!
Demi also added that instead of focusing so much on cancelling people, everyone should think about “forgiveness culture,” as she called it. She wondered:
“Where is the forgiveness culture? If you have used up your second and third chances with a certain topic, you’re canceled and you should stay canceled, but if you mess up and you apologize and you come forward and you say, ‘I’ve learned from this,’ then let that be an example for other people so that they can change too.”
She made several points! Now, if only one of those were specifically about that Instagram account…
