Demi Lovato took to Twitter for a serious rant on May 4.
Following reports of drama with Nicki Minaj after Demi posted a seriously shady shot of the two on her Instagram page on May 3, Lovato took to Twitter to post a slew of tweets to vent her frustrations about her lack of privacy and the constant cyber-bullying she experiences on social media.
“Is it worth it? Sometimes there’s more to the story,” Demi’s late night Twitter rant began, where she appeared to be alluding to her alleged Met Gala drama with Nicki Minaj.
“Sometimes there’s more s*** going on than you see. Maybe you DON’T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn’t assume you know,” Lovato continued on the social media site, admitting that she was growing “tired of sharing my story with the world.”
Demi Lovato then told fans that she “can’t change being crazy” and speculated that her late-night Twitter session could be a result of her bipolar disorder as she then appeared to blast her fans for feeling as though they know her and everything about her.
“Maybe I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself,” Demi scathed, slamming social media haters who allegedly attacked her following her apparent spat with Minaj.
“Imagine the love of [your] life/biggest crush finding out u spend time on the internet commenting negative s*** about celebrities. Embarrassed?” Lovato asked her almost 40 million followers. “Imagine your grandparents finding out you spend your free time being an internet troll to celebrities you don’t even know.”
“Imagine telling your future children how you spent more time cyber bullying strangers than you did building a better future for them,” Demi continued before signing off her lengthy social media rant with the message, “I’d rather annoy people with my honesty and loud opinions than stay silent and be fake as f***.”
Demi Lovato didn’t explicitly note what inspired her social media outburst, but Lovato’s Twitter rant followed recent posts on both Instagram and Snapchat where she alluded to a feud with Nicki Minaj and being uncomfortable during her appearance at the Met Gala on May 2.
Just one day earlier, Demi took to Instagram to share a snap of herself and Nicki on the red carpet at the prestigious fashion event, where Minaj appeared to be throwing Lovato some serious side-eye.
“This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met,” Demi captioned the photo, which showed the two pop superstars walking the red carpet with the creative director of Balenciaga, Jeremy Scott.
Demi then added the very telling hashtags #sof******awkward, #notforme, and #whatsgood before elaborating that she felt “incredibly awkward” at the fashion event and joked that “the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life” in the snap’s caption.
The Instagram post followed a similar photo from the event posted by Nicki Minaj on her own Instagram account, in which she tagged Scott but failed to even acknowledge Demi.
While it appeared that Nicki’s post could have been a simple oversight, Lovato hinted in a Snapchat post captured by Baller Alert and posted to Instagram that there could be more to their apparent drama than it first appears.
According to a screen shot captured by the source, Demi Lovato took to Snapchat earlier in the day to reference Minaj’s omission, which she captioned “when you aren’t mentioned in a post but didn’t do s*** to the person.”
Although Demi didn’t explicitly reveal if the alleged drama with Nicki was the source of her recent social media outburst, Lovato’s Twitter meltdown came shortly after the “Confident” singer allegedly liked a series of messages directed at her from online bullies on Twitter.
