I don’t know if Demi Lovato’s New Year’s resolution was to drag every popular female artist from the music industry into as many messy cat fights as possible, but it’s starting to look that way. So far in 2016, Demi has come for Taylor Swift, then Nicki Minaj, then Taylor Swift again. And now she’s starting a fight that includes Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Jennifer Lopez.
UsWeekly says it all started because of a meme. Yes, A MEME! Remember that when we get to the end of this story and you go “What the fuck was this fight all about again?” A fan recently posted the following meme of Mariah and her travel-sized equivalent on Instagram:
Demi’s favorite dog whistle-sounding diva is clearly Ariana, and she didn’t think it was very funny to joke about her being Mariah’s disappointing substitute. So she left a comment saying: “You got it the wrong way around honey.” In Demi’s mind, Mariah is the human version of a waitress asking you “Is Pepsi ok?” Mariah’s lambs demanded Demi to explain herself and her casual blasphemy, and that’s when she brought Jennifer Lopez’s name into it. Mariah may not know JLo, but Demi knows her. And according to Demi, Mariah is kind of a bitch.
“Mariah is a legend and is so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer [Lopez]. Ari did nothing wrong.”
So far, neither Ariana, nor Mariah, nor JLo have said anything about this. But if they do, I’m sure it will be limited to an awkward “Uh…I don’t know her.”
You know, I take umbrage with that thing about Mariah constantly dissing people. One quick peek at Mariah’s Instagram page shows that if she’s “constantly” doing anything, it’s being super glamorous. Besides, Mariah is far too busy being poured into NASA-grade pantyhose and setting Vegas records for slowest recorded speed by a human moving on a stage to be online dissing people. So obviously, this cat fight is over before it even started. Which is probably for the best, since it’s already the middle of June. Come on Demi, you have so many more people to drag!
