Go to sleep, Demi Lovato.
In the wee hours of Thursday morning, Lovato fired up her Twitter app and started defending social media posts she made earlier in the day calling out Nicki Minaj for an Instagram snub and alleged death stare at the Met Gala.
Earlier this week, Minaj posted a photo of her standing next to Demi Lovato and Jeremy Scott, the fashion designer who created both of their Moschino gowns for this year’s Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology–themed affair. She tagged Moschino and Scott, but left Lovato out.
I hate when that happens, but I expect I’d carry on with my day of drinking frappuccinos and leave it be. Not Lovato, she made a few mentions of it on SnapChat and Instagram.
This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met ??? #cool #sofuckingawkward #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood p.s. some of y'all need to learn how to take a joke.. I'm obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life ???

Lovato had a minute to let the situation sit before realizing her reaction came off like a 6-year-old getting picked last for kickball. She took to Twitter to address the fans dragging her for the dramatics.
“Sometimes there’s more to the story. Sometimes there’s more s–t going on than you see,” Lovato said in the start of a lengthy Twitter rant. “Maybe you DON’T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn’t assume you know. Maybe I’m tired of sharing my story with the world,” she went on.
In a now deleted Tweet, Lovato said: “Maybe my midnight rants are a part of my bipolar disorder. Can’t change being crazy.. But you can press unfollow.”
She added, “Or maybe I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself. Or imagine telling your future children how you spent more time cyber bullying strangers than you did building a better future for them.. At least I’m honest,” Lovato continued. “I’d rather annoy people with my honesty and loud opinions than stay silent and be fake as f–k. #lasttweetofthenight #goingtosleep.”
