Demi Lovato has a few thoughts about mermaid and aliens.
You’re probably wondering if The Inquisitr has officially started scraping the bottom of the proverbial barrel for stories. Did this writer hit his head, forgo medical attention, and decide to fabricate a story about Lovato and her obsession with mermaids? To be perfectly honest, we’re not making any of this stuff up.
According to The Huffington Post, Demi Lovato shared her feelings about mermaids and aliens during her recent appearance Late Night with Seth Meyers. Although the talk show host doesn’t believe in these otherworldly beings, the “Neon Lights” singer firmly believes that we’re not alone in the Twilight Zone.
“I know that they are real. How self-centered would we be, as humans, to believe that we are the only living things in the universe?” Lovato explained to Meyers. Unfortunately, she didn’t convince Seth to change his mind.
The singer continued:
“[Mermaids are] an alien species living in parts of the Indian Ocean, which we have never explored before as human beings — and Christopher Columbus had actually seen three mermaids on his way to America… No. I mean they are aliens. There are pictures online.”
Apparently Demi Lovato has spent some time studying Animal Planet’s faux documentary Mermaids: The Body Found. So many people were convinced the film was real that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement on the subject. In short: There’s no such thing as mermaids. As far as we know, anyway.

Here’s what officials had to say on the subject:
“The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also abound in mythology — in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few.”
The statement continued:
“But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.”
Are you surprised that Demi Lovato believes in mermaids and aliens? Do you agree there are other lifeforms out there that mankind has yet to encounter?
