Demi Lovato Tweet Says Take Off Makeup, Insults Our Intelligence

Elaine Radford

Demi Lovato's tweet urging the credulous (or the blind) to take off their makeup and "stop using those filters" is the latest in a tired string of steaming horse hockey claims that this star or that one wasn't wearing her makeup in some obviously posed photo.

For instance, a few days ago, The Inquisitr posted Mariah Carey's Instagram photo of the fake natural look in the tub. If by "no makeup," you mean a waterproof foundation, sheer lip gloss, and about three pounds of mascara and eyeliner, then it's a pretty decent look at how Carey appears with her hair down...

Oh, wait a minute. Actually, her hair was swept up too.

So, not to be undone, Demi Lovato tweeted her own fake natural look photo, along with some self-righteous blither advising other women to take off their makeup.

Now you may say that in the great scheme of things, it isn't exactly North Korea threatening to blow us off the map.

Maybe not. But everybody knows that North Korea is a self-promoting ball of hot air.

Vulnerable young fans apparently honestly believe that Demi Lovato can look like that without makeup and a stylist...even though she reveals later that the photo is a teaser from a People magazine shoot.

That issue, due out on the 24th, will apparently feature Lovato and some other stars pretending to pose without makeup. I can hardly wait.

But how do you look at that picture and not see the lip gloss, sheer blush, and dark mascara? Or does lip gloss, blush, and mascara not count as makeup? Maybe it's only makeup if Dolly Parton is wearing it.

Glad you loved my no makeup pic! It's from my @peoplemag photo shoot for the #MostBeautiful issue. Look for me others w/o makeup on 4/24!!

I'm not always a hater, but if she'd take off about two pounds of mascara, Demi Lovato's tweet about not wearing makeup would be a lot more convincing.
