Jimmy Fallon Lucky To Be Demi Lovato’s New BFF, While Demi Faces A Sampling Lawsuit
Jimmy Fallon must have loads of friends, right? But, he revealed on Friday night that he has a new BFF – Demi Lovato! Demi appeared on The Tonight Show looking sassy and sexy and ready not only to chat with Jimmy Fallon, but to perform her new single, “Confident.”
There is no doubt the 23-year-old Demi is bold, beautiful and not afraid to show off her body. As reported by the Daily Mail, when on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she wore a very short tuxedo dress with a dramatic low cut, revealing a lot of cleavage. She topped that off with some wicked pumps.

What she was wearing certainly didn’t stop her from getting her dance moves on during her performance of “Confident.” She was confident as she rocked it.
But, because they are BFFs and everyone in Demi’s inner circle has a black jacket that says “Confident” on the back, she decided Jimmy Fallon should have a special black jacket, tailored just for him. The jacket she gave him read “Confident BFFFFFFF” on the back. How cute is that? Check out the clip of when she gives him the jacket.
Entertainment Weekly reports Jimmy Fallon felt “cool” in his new jacket. The pair then sealed the BFF deal when Demi presented Jimmy Fallon a pumpkin carved to bear their likenesses along with “BFFFFF.” What a way to ring in Halloween. Only Jimmy Fallon and his guests can do it with such style.
Aside from talking about her new single, Demi confirmed that she will be touring with Nick Jonas and that she would be singing the national anthem at the World Series on Saturday night. Gossip Cop reports that Jimmy Fallon was teasingly unsupported when she talked about her World Series gig.
“You know if you screw this up, people hate you for life.”
Demi replied that it would be all his fault if she did screw up. Demi did not screw up her big performance on Saturday night. Instead, she showed up in red leather and belted out the national anthem as only Demi Lovato can.
She blew everyone away, including these two stars, who immediately took to Twitter to praise Demi’s performance: Josh Groban and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Surely, Jimmy Fallon would have loved her World Series performance, too.
It’s too bad Jimmy Fallon didn’t get a chance to ask Demi about the allegations that she sampled Sleigh Bells’ songs “Riot Rhythms” and “Infinity Guitars” on the track “Stars,” which appears on her newest album, Confident. According to Entertainment Weekly, Demi’s producers Rami and Carl Falk said there were no samples used.
“We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song ‘Stars.’ Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line.”

Still, there might be a lawsuit in the near future. A representative for Sleigh Bells confirmed the use of the sample and that they will be taking action.
“I can confirm that the band feels their music has been sampled without proper clearance and are seeking all available remedies with [Lovato’s label,] Island Records.”
Despite this, Demi Lovato will forge ahead with her amazing music and performances. And we all know that because she is Jimmy Fallon’s BFF, she will be appearing on The Tonight Show again and again. Fans are most certainly looking forward to it. Maybe Jimmy Fallon will have her playing a game next time.
