[Billboard] Demi Lovato has little tolerance for fakeness of any kind.
“The people that aren’t willing to chill with you at home are the type of people that just want to be seen with you,” she says. “When Ariana Grande and I hang out, it’s super chill.”
Lovato’s tolerance for artifice reached its breaking point at the 2016 Met Gala in New York, the annual celeb-packed, black-tie fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, presided over by Vogue’s Anna Wintour.
“I had a terrible experience,” says Lovato, her voice rising in pitch for the only time during our conversation. This one celebrity was a complete bitch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink.”
She texted her manager, then went straight to a 10 p.m. Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
“I changed my clothes, but I still had my diamonds on — millions of dollars of diamonds on in an AA meeting. And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala — fake and sucking the fashion industry’s dick.”
