It all started when Demi Lovato admitted that she didn’t like it when Nicki Minaj didn’t tag her in an Instagram post featuring both stars at the Met Gala. She took to both Instagram and Snapchat to air out her annoyance with Minaj’s post, although she made it clear that she was only joking. Then she followed up with her own Instagram post, which featured Minaj throwing some major side-eye as they both stood next to designer Jeremy Scott.
She then had one of those late-night rants that some of us have on Twitter on early Thursday morning. Though the 23-year-old singer didn’t directly say what she was upset about, it’s clear that she’s tired of the scrutiny over every social media posts she makes.
“Sometimes there’s more to the story,” she tweeted. “Sometimes there’s more s**t going on than you see. Maybe you DON’T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn’t assume you know.”
Demi Lovato then followed up with the tweet, “Maybe I’m tired of sharing my story with the world.” Lovato has always been open and honest about her road to recovery and mental health issues. She said that the reason behind her tweets has a lot to do with her bipolar disorder.
Then the recovering addict tweeted, “Maybe my midnight rants are part of my bipolar disorder. Can’t change being crazy.. But you can press unfollow.”
She didn’t stop there, though. Lovato then added, “Or maybe I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself. Or maybe telling your future children how you spent more time cyber bullying strangers than you did building a better future for them..”
It appeared that Demi Lovato’s late-night rant had to do with the negative remarks she received shortly after she exclaimed her frustrations over Nicki Minaj’s Instagram post.
