If sites like DeviantArt have taught me anything, it’s that if you can picture a cartoon character having sex, someone has probably drawn it, and that people love drawing fan art. There is no end to the pencil sketch fan art on the internet. There’s probably almost as much fan art portraits as there is porn at this point. Some are flattering. Some look like they could be hanging in the Gallery of Terrifying Famous Faces next to that painting of Prince William. Refinery29 says that Demi Lovato recently saw some maybe-too-flattering fan art that was done in her likeness that did not get the Demi Lovato seal of approval.
10 weeks ago, a Romanian Instagram artist named Vladimir Serbanescu posted a pencil portrait of Demi Lovato reimagined as a sexy topless mermaid. Several weeks later, Demi finally saw Vlad’s portrait of Merdemi, and she slapped at him for removing the realness from her body. And then Vlad grabbed a screen shot and slapped back at Demi for slapping at him.
If i make your waist slimmer and your boobs bigger to accentuate the fact that i drew you as a mermaid, a mythological creature, doesn’t mean I say that you should look like that or all girls should look like that. That’s how i imagine mermaids. I worked a lot on that drawing and i was proud of it, but not anymore. @ddlovato. The coments are from @sexlikelovato_’s post #demilovato
According to Vlad, mermaids are known for their big boobs and snatched waists. I mean, of course they are. Everyone knows that mermaids make up at least 50% of the tricks hustling waist trainers and bust-enhancing vitamins on Instagram.
Demi has been all about the body confidence for a couple years now, so it’s not exactly a surprise that she wasn’t feeling Vlad’s creative direction. It also kind of sounds like Demi lost a “Lovatic” that day. I wish I could care about either, but I’m busy thinking of the Sliding Doors-style alternate universe in which Vlad decided to draw a portrait of Demi’s twin sister Poot Lovato instead. Then again, we all know what happens at the end of that story. Vlad’s gorgeous portrait of Merpoot is noticed by executives at Disney, who realize Poot makes Ariel look like a bag of rancid crabs, scrap their live-action version of The Little Mermaid, and sink all their money into a 5-film franchise called The Little Poot.
