  • Demi Lovato Sarcastically Responds to Rudy Giuliani's Explanation of Compromising 'Borat 2' Scene

    WENN/Michael Wright

    Josh Gad says the former New York City mayor is ‘over in a very big way’ after he’s caught with his hands down his pants while in a hotel room with an actress playing Sacha Baron Cohen’s daughter in the film.

    Oct 22, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Demi Lovato isn’t buying Rudy Giuliani’s explanation of his inappropriate scene in “Borat 2”. The personal lawyer to President Donald Trump was caught in a compromising position in a scene filmed with actress Maria Bakalova, 24, who plays star Sacha Baron Cohen’s onscreen 15-year-old daughter Tutar.
    In the scene in question, Giuliani went into a hotel room with Bakalova, whom he believed just interviewed him for a conservative news program, to have a drink. The camera then captured the former New York City mayor helping the actress remove a clip microphone from the reporter’s dress, and she, in turn, helped Giulani remove his clip microphone as he gave her a pat on the back.
    When Bakalova turned away, Giulani lied down on the bed and untucked his shirt. He then reached down into her pants and moved it around for several seconds.
    After he’s accused of acting inappropriate during the filming of the scene, Giulani defended himself, saying that “the Borat video is a complete fabrication.” He explained, “I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment. At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”
    But the whole sequence of the incident has got Lovato suspicious and she mocked the 76-year-old politician for his explanation. “So you normally drink with reporters, follow them to the bedroom and then lie on the bed and let her take off your mic for you? I guess I’ve been doin my interviews all wrong…,” she sarcastically tweeted.

    Demi Lovato reacted to Rudy Giuliani’s explanation.
    Lovato isn’t the only celebrity who has blasted Giulani for his scene in the “Borat” sequel. Josh Gad wrote on his own Twitter account, “Well, looks like the cat’s out of the pants. Having seen #Borat2 I can now safely tell you #RudyGiuliani is over in a very big way. It’s worse than you think and more uncomfortable than anything I’ve seen in a recent film, documentary or otherwise.”

    Judd Apatow commented on Gad’s tweet, “I saw it. I wish I could unsee it. But Borat 2 is hilarious.” Meghan McCain dubbed it “DISGUSTING,” adding, “I don’t want to watch anything that’s going to make me vomit…”

    Meghan McCain also reacted to Giulani’s ‘Borat 2’ scene.
    In a series of Twitter posts, Giulani also suggested that his depiction in the film was orchestrated by Joe Biden’s team. “This is an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family,” so he claimed.
    “Deadline Hollywood reports CAA had a distribution screening in September where there was no mention of the scene holding any importance,” he continued. “We are preparing much bigger dumps off of the hard drive from hell, of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts.”

    Giuliani defended himself after caught in compromising position in the ‘Borat’ sequel.
    Back in July, Giulani called the cops when he realized that the interview was a prank set up by Cohen for his film. “This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” he told The New York Post that same month. “This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away. I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”
    “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” will premiere October 23 on Amazon.

  • NBC Accused of Censoring Demi Lovato's Anti-Trump Performance at Billboard Music Awards

    NBC

    The Peacock has seemingly censored the ‘Commander In Chief’ performance by the former Disney darling as the original footage makes its way out on the internet.
    Oct 16, 2020
    AceShowbiz – NBC officials appeared to censor Demi Lovato’s plea for fans to vote in the upcoming U.S. election during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday (14Oct20) night.
    The 28-year-old star took to the stage to perform her latest song, “Commander in Chief”, which takes aim at incumbent leader Donald Trump, with lines like, “Do you even know the truth? / We’re in a state of crisis, people are dyin’ / While you line your pockets deep.”
    In footage obtained by TMZ, the word “vote” was splashed up on the stage behind her after she concluded the song but, in the final broadcast, the camera cut to a close up of the singer when the music stopped.

    Sources told the outlet bosses felt that, because “Commander in Chief” was an anti-Trump song, the “vote” message was too clearly a call to vote against him. The network is also set to host a town hall with Trump on Thursday evening.
    Lovato hasn’t held back in her criticism of the president and, while the track prompted an intense response on Instagram, with some fans slamming the star and suggesting her political stance could “ruin” her career, she insisted she “literally doesn’t care.”
    “This isn’t about that. My career isn’t about that,” she told fans on Instagram. “I made a piece of art that stands for something I believe in. And I’m putting it out even at the risk of losing fans. I’ll take integrity in my work over sales any day.”

She will perform the hard-hitting song she wrote with Finneas and Julia Michaels, among others, at the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday.
    The track’s debut prompted an intense response on Instagram, with some fans slamming the star and suggesting her political stance could “ruin” her career.

    “I made a piece of art that stands for something I believe in. And I’m putting it out even at the risk of losing fans. I’ll take integrity in my work over sales any day.”
    The lyrics include the lines, “We were taught when we were young / If we fight for what’s right there won’t be justice for just some / We won’t give up, stand our ground / We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down / Loud and proud, best believe / We’ll still take knee, while you’re Commander in Chief.”

  • Demi Lovato Credits 'Cruel Intentions' for Her Queer Awakening

    Instagram

    The ‘Confident’ hitmaker discusses the moment she realized she wasn’t straight with ‘Queer Eye’ star Tan France when co-hosting Facebook Watch’s Coming Out 2020 virtual event.
    Oct 10, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Pop star Demi Lovato first realised she wasn’t straight after becoming aroused watching Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair’s lesbian lip-lock in “Cruel Intentions”.
    The “Confident” hitmaker admits she was a little too young to be viewing the racy 1999 teen drama, but it made her really think about her sexual orientation.
    Discussing the moment she recognised her feelings with “Queer Eye” star Tan France as they co-hosted Facebook Watch’s Coming Out 2020 virtual event on Friday, October 9, she said, “It was definitely when I was young and should not have been watching Cruel Intentions, but I did. It was that scene where they (Gellar and Blair) made out on the park lawn, and I was just like, ‘Oh, wait a minute, I really like that!’.”

    Demi, who first ‘came out’ as bisexual in 2017, also revealed how she had previously written tracks about same-sex romances, but fans just assumed she was singing about male love interests.

    “There were times where I wrote songs about girls that my fans thought I wrote about a guy,” she shared, without giving examples of the tunes in question.
    “I’m surprised that some of them didn’t figure out that some of the songs were for certain people. I was sharing it with the world, yet I wasn’t being completely obvious with what I was talking about. Music was my safe space.”
    The Facebook Watch event was designed to celebrate Sunday’s National Coming Out Day.
    It marked Lovato’s first public appearance since breaking off her engagement to actor Max Ehrich.
    The former couple began dating in March and became engaged in July, after a whirlwind romance, but split in late September.

  • Demi Lovato Bares Her Heart Out in New Breakup Song Following Max Ehrich Split

    Instagram

    The former Disney darling talks about someone stealing all her light in a self-love anthem titled ‘Still Have Me’ as she appears to reflect on her separation from fiance.
    Oct 1, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Demi Lovato is reflecting on her shock split from ex-fiance Max Ehrich in a new ballad all about self-love.
    The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer was reported to have dumped Ehrich last week (ends25Sep20), and the actor, who has been filming a new faith-based movie on location in Georgia, subsequently took to social media to claim he had learned all about their breakup “through a tabloid” as he pleaded with Demi to answer his calls and “forgive” him so they could reconcile.
    The pop star has yet to directly address the broken engagement, but on Wednesday (30Sep20), she dropped a new song which appeared to hint at her feelings about the end of the whirlwind romance.
    She teased the release of “Still Have Me” in a Twitter post late on Tuesday, writing, “Music is always there for me… song in the am (morning).”
    The ballad features the lyrics, “I’m a mess and I’m still broken / But I’m finding my way back / And it feels like someone’s stolen all the light I ever had / It hurts to breathe / I don’t have much, but at least I still have me / And that’s all I need.”

    According to TMZ sources, Demi wrote the song a few months ago, but reworked some of the lyrics in the wake of her new single status.
    And it appears Demi’s representatives were caught off-guard by the surprise release as they scrambled to make “Still Have Me” available to stream and download on platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
    Reacting to the song post on Instagram, her manager Scooter Braun commented with a red heart icon and added, “Now let’s just get it up on streamers,” alongside a smiley face with sweat emoji.
    Lovato and the former “The Young and the Restless” star Ehrich became engaged in July, just four months after they started dating.

  • JoJo and Demi Lovato Feel Connection With Each Other Over 'Lonely Hearts' Lyrics

    According to the ‘America’s Most Talented Kids’ alum, she and the former Disney star are connected to the ‘Lonely Hearts’ lyrics because they’ve ‘both been there before.’
    Aug 9, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Singer JoJo reached out to collaborate with musical heroine Demi Lovato on a remix of one of her songs after the singer praised her latest album.
    The “Leave (Get Out)” hitmaker has long admired Lovato and took a chance, texting the star after hearing her discuss how much she liked JoJo’s new album “Good to Know” with Sam Smith after it debuted in May (20).
    “She is so supportive and so, so sweet,” JoJo told Entertainment Tonight during a recent virtual sit-down. “Her and Sam Smith were talking about how much they loved my new album… they did like, this joint interview, and they were both talking about it, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is so sweet!'”
    The pair exchanged messages about their latest music, with Lovato revealing that the track “Lonely Hearts” was one of her favourites, and that’s when JoJo seized her opportunity.
    “I think she told me that Lonely Hearts was one of her favorites, and I was like, ‘Why don’t you get on it?’ And she was like, ‘OK.’ So really it was like that. And we were able to make it happen,” she smiled.
    Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the duo was forced to record its parts of the remix in separate places, and JoJo was full of praise for Lovato’s work on the track.
    “She absolutely destroyed it. She killed it,” JoJo gushed. “It’s just amazing. I’m so excited that she took the song and elevated it.”
    “We’ve known each other for such a long time, and I have a lot of respect for her,” she added of the I Love Me singer. “I think we both feel a connection with each other.”
    According to the 29 year old, she and Lovato both connected to the song’s relatable lyrics.
    “We’ve both been there before… and for me it’s very applicable right now,” JoJo explained. “Just feeling like, you know, I’m good at being alone and I don’t wanna be heartbroken, and if I’m alone, I know I can’t get heartbroken. So that’s what it’s about.”
    The remix of “Lonely Hearts” featuring Lovato will be released on 28 August as part of the “Good to Know” deluxe edition.
