Demi Lovato Quits Social Media: Is Her Mariah Carey Feud To Blame?
Demi Lovato wants everyone to know that she’s doing away with social media. The outspoken 23-year-year-old has taken to her social media accounts to let her fans know why she will no longer be on Twitter or Instagram.
The “Cool For the Summer” singer is not feeling so cool about social media. Lovato took to Twitter to let her 36.6 million fans know that she will be taking a leave of absence from almost all forms of social media.
“D*mn I gotta quit sayin s**t. Bye Twitter. And Insta,” she wrote on Monday, June 20.
However, Demi revealed that she’s not cutting Snapchat out of her life. In fact, she loves using the popular social media app, because she doesn’t receive comments from haters and online trolls like she does on the other social media apps.
“I like Snapchat because I don’t have to see what some of y’all say. Follow me if you want: theddlovato. But why do people actually give a f*** what I say?? Like if you don’t care the [sic] gtfo haha,” she bluntly wrote.
As for what caused Lovato’s sudden social media break, nobody seems to know the answer. Before she signed off of Twitter for good, Lovato posted two more tweets that have fans wondering what she’s talking about.
“That one time I started my own charity providing mental health care for people who can’t afford it and this is what y’all talk about,” she wrote. “And people wonder what’s wrong with the world. Pay more attention to good than bad.”
Demi could be taking a break after she received backlash for making comparisons between Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande. She even defended her friend Jennifer Lopez on Instagram. Over the weekend, Demi slammed Mariah Carey in a series of Instagram comments (that were later deleted) and revealed on the celebrity gossip account, The Art of Shade, when she came to the defense of her famous friend.

Then, there was a post that compared Ariana Grande to Mariah Carey, claiming that the 22-year-old is a lesser version of the 46-year-old diva. Lovato commented, saying, “You got it the wrong way around honey,” saying that Grande is the better version of Carey.
She then brought up the singer’s decades-long feud with Jennifer Lopez.
“Mariah is a legend and so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer. Ari did nothing wrong,” Lovato reportedly wrote.
When Mariah’s fans attacked Demi, she added, “This is why I posted what I did. Jen keeps it classy but I’m not afraid to say s***. The woman is mean for no reason. Extremely talented? Yes. Superhuman? Possibly. Unnecessarily rude? Absolutely.”
Then, Lovato revealed that she’s bored and can’t wait for her Future Now tour with Nick Jonas to start soon. It sounds like she needs a social media break to focus on the tour and avoid all of the scrutiny she’s received.
The pop star has also broken up with her longtime boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama. Both stars have told fans that they have decided to break up after 6 years of dating because they realized they were “better as best friends,” as they said in their joint social media statement. But, a new report claims that commitment issues are what drove the couple apart.
Demi has expressed in the past that she would love to marry Wilmer, but only if he would put a ring on it. According to a new report in OK! Magazine, he wasn’t ready to commit to his young girlfriend.
“Demi wanted a ring, but Wilmer wasn’t ready to get married. She didn’t want to wait around anymore, so they decided to part ways.”
Now, the singer’s BFF Iggy Azalea has split from fiancé Nick Young after his alleged cheating scandal. Since both of them are going through a split at the same time, they could console each other by having sleepovers and watching movies, like Iggy has previously said.
