Demi Lovato isn't afraid to tell you exactly what is on her mind.
Just one day after her fellow Complex cover star, Justin Bieber laid it all out there, Demi does the same. She talks music, her relationship with longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama and her celebrity friendships with Selena Gomez and Iggy Azalea. Here are 9 things we learned about Demi during her revealing interview.
Nobody Is Kissing Her Ass
Demi Lovato's Instagram usually consists of adorable pictures of her and boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, no makeup Monday selfies or her just being fierce AF. But there is one thing you don't see a lot of -- her celebrity friends flooding your feed. That's because it's just not her thing.
"I don’t really hang out with celebrities. I guess I do sometimes. I like Hailee Steinfeld. And Nick [Jonas]. But I don’t count Nick and Joe [Jonas] as celebrities. I’ve grown up with them. I’m not the type of person that’s on Instagram posting pictures of me and tons of my best friends. I have my core group, and they’re the type of people that will be there for me in the middle of the night. They’re the type of people that are like, “You’re being a bitch right now. Don’t talk to me that way,” and I’m like, 'Whoa. Sorry. I didn’t realize it.' I don’t have anybody around me who kisses my ass."
Demi + Selena = Not BFF?
Demi and Selena seemed to have patched up their friendship after Selena wished her a happy birthday, and Demi posted a pic with the caption, "Friends for years." So it was a bit surprising to read that she said "nope" when asked if she was friends with the "Good For You" singer. When pressed if a particular relationship (alluding to her on-and-off romance with Justin Bieber) was the cause of rift in their friendship she said, "not really, not anymore."
Before Lovatics and Selenators jump to conclusions, please keep in mind that magazine interviews are done several weeks or even months in advance, so this could have taken place before they seemingly reconciled.
Justin Bieber Is A Nice Guy
Last year, there was a petition going around to get Justin Bieber deported back to Canada, but Demi admits she did not add her signature to the list. She considers Justin a "nice guy," who seems to have "grown up."
"He looks like he’s maturing. But, you know, when you’re young and you get older, you change and people change. You have things in common, and then all of a sudden, you don’t. It’s just a part of life."
Iggy And Demi Make Gingerbread Houses For Fun
Demi has found a close friend in Iggy Azalea. I mean they have to be close since Demi's a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding to Nick Young. The two met at a Halloween party and have been friends ever since because "we’ve all been through a lot and we’ve come out strong."
"The fact that she’s gone through so much and I’ve gone through so much and on a Friday night we can make gingerbread houses together instead of going out and drinking our sorrows away—that’s f--king cool. I love that. It’s nice to have somebody who’s younger in the entertainment business who doesn’t do all of that stuff."
Demi Dreams Of A 'Shabby Chic' Wedding
Demi, may have caught Wilmer by surprise a few weeks back when she revealed she would say "yes" if he proposed -- "He was like, 'Do you want to warn me with this stuff?' I was like, 'It just came out! I’m really sorry.' He was like, 'Don’t apologize,'" she said of his reaction. But that doesn't mean she's not dreaming about the big day.
"I love shabby chic," she said of her ideal wedding. "I don’t know if it would be in a barn, but I think I’d definitely want an outdoor wedding, with lights hanging in the trees."
The Kardashians Give Her Curvespiration
Demi has been working hard on her body, and it's been paying off. She's been flaunting her toned, curvy figure on Instagram and credits the Kardashians for giving her the inspiration.
"When they came into the spotlight, they kind of revolutionized what beauty was when it came to body shapes. For so long, it was the heroin-chic ’90s supermodel thing, and I feel like, when the Kardashians came into the picture, people started to look at it because it was different. They were like, 'You know what? That’s actually really beautiful.'"
Cool For Ruby Rose?
When Demi's "Cool For The Summer" dropped, there were a few rumors surrounding the song. Some thought it copied Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl."
"The song literally sounds nothing like 'I Kissed a Girl.' Well, I used the word 'cherry.' How dare I use that word. It’s definitely not a rip-off of anything," Demi said.
Others thought it was about "Orange Is The New Black" star Ruby Rose. Demi said that the song is not about the actress, whom she has met, and insists she was never in a relationship with.
"I don’t feel like any of my past or future -- when it comes to relationships that may have happened or not have happened -- are of any concern to anybody. What matters to me is my relationship with Wilmer. We are in an amazing place. Rumors are rumors, and people are going to spread them. You can believe what you want, but no, I was not in a relationship with her."
This Is Her Fight Song
Demi has been getting inspiration from not only life experiences, but from people as well on her upcoming album, including UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.
"She’s a confident, strong woman, and she’s actually a friend of mine," Demi said before revealing how they met. "She knew I was a superfan. My dream video would be to fight her in the Octagon on this song."
She Wants A Grammy
Demi is on a mission to not win a Grammy award, but to be nominated, calling it a "huge goal" for her upcoming album, Confident. The pop star said she is placing her bets on her ballad, "Stone Cold," to be the standout track for the Grammy committee.
"I watched the Grammy nominations last year and I was like, 'I want to be there so bad.' It really gave me that kick in the ass to make music that was worthy of it. This is a song that I feel like is worthy of notification...Everything in my entire singing career—all of the guitar lessons, all of the voice lessons, all of the songs that I wrote when I was 8 years old, when I was 15, writing six songs a night, all of the touring—would be worth it. That’s what it means to me. It’s literally everything."
