Demi Lovato And Nick Jonas Cover Billboard MagazineJuly 21, 2016
Lovato says Mariah Carey is probably “sitting on diamond records not giving a f– what I have to say.”
Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas give their most honest interview yet.
Want to know how Nick Jonas feels about breaking up with ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo (he laughed and said “I’m in such agony. I’m dying inside”) or Demi’s response to defending Ariana Grande against Mariah Carey? Head over to Billboard to read the Future Now tour mates’ entire chat.
Below are some highlights:
Nick on Demi leaving the 2010 Jonas tour after punching a dancer:
“That we were going to get sued. I mean, it was bad. On top of losing a friend, we have seven dates left, it’s a big production, people are expecting to see Demi and that’s not going to happen. I was angry…”
Demi on leaving Disney:
“We joked around that it was Disney High, except we all were shooting shows and really overworking. I joke that I sometimes have PTSD after leaving the channel, because if my schedule starts to get too busy, I rebel and I get bitchy…”
Demi on why she supports Hillary Clinton:
“When I went through my ****, I realized it was for a reason — to make a difference. I can share my story a million times, but it’s not as tangible as going to Capitol Hill. Hillary is in support of mental health care and, yeah, I’m a Democrat.”
Demi on standing up for Ariana Grande at Mariah Carey’s expense:
“I’m sure she’s sitting on diamond records not giving a f– what I have to say. That’s fine. I don’t even give a f– what I have to say. That’s why I just say it.”
Nick on being advocates for the LGBTQ community:
Think about my past and where my love for performance comes from — musical theater. And playing this gay fighter in a very macho world for Kingdom, it requires me digging really deep, and I do it with respect and honor.
On his speech for the victims of Pulse Nightclub shooting, and the backlash he received:
I wouldn’t change a thing. That’s a moment — and in general the time we’re in in this country — where unity, support and raising our hand and saying we can make change is what’s important, so it’s a shame when people make it about something else.
