Much has been made in recent years of the alleged rivalry between fellow pop megastars Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, but their feud may now be over after Lovato took the time in a new interview to praise Miley for getting sober.
24 year old Cyrus, who for a few years attracted a reputation as a rebellious tearaway with her new raunchy image stemming from 2013’s ‘Wrecking Ball’, recently told Billboard that she is now “completely clean”, having kicked alcohol, marijuana and other drugs.

Are Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez feuding? They used to be the best of friends but now Lovato has unfollowed Gomez on Twitter and reportedly posted a message seemingly directed at Gomez on the social media site. The pair has been friends for more than 14 years, ever since they starred together on Barney and Friends. So what has happened in the past six months to ruin a seemingly perfect friendship?

Shortly after unfollowing Gomez on Twitter on Thursday (3rd July), Lovato posted a picture of herself swimming in the sea with the caption "Swimming away from the bulls**t bye bitch."

Demi Lovato turned heads at LOGO TV's first Annual Trailblazers event held at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York where she wore a black dress with mesh neckline teamed with her purple dip-dyed, half-shaved hair in true rock chick style.
Apparently Lovato has personal reasons for her LGBT advocacy.

"He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel that a lot of my spirit has come from him.

The 21 year-old singer tells readers of Seventeen, "every day is a new opportunity to change your life and be who you want to be," as she opens up about life after rehab.
The Demi Lovato of 2014 is very different from the same person several years ago.
The American singer checked into rehab in October 2010 to receive treatment for her addiction to the class A drug cocaine and alcohol, as well as suffering from an eating disorder.
But four years later, Lovato is living proof that life can get better, and she recently opened up about her progression in Seventeen’s August 2014 issue.
Demi Lovato and The Vamps teamed up for the UK group's new single, 'Somebody to You.' How does it stack up to Lovato's other collaborations?
In a pop world ruled by boybands like One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer, it’s easy for one to slip under the radar, no matter how good or charming they may be. For the British group The Vamps, they recently released their first record, Meet the Vamps, last month with standouts tracks including ‘On the Floor’ and the Bruno Mars-written ‘Can We Dance.’ Although The Vamps are just starting their careers, they’re already making a pretty big impact: the album debuted at number two on the UK charts, and each of the three singles so far have entered the top five. This week, The Vamps made it known that they were looking for a fourth single to add to that list, as the re-release of ‘Somebody to You’ features guest vocals from Demi Lovato, and it may just end up being their biggest song yet.
The Vamps released their debut album in April
The Demi-ified ‘Somebody to You’ is a vast improvement over the original, and her voice gives it that summer oomph to it that’s bound to make it a staple on any beach playlist this summer. The ‘Heart Attack’ singer lends an addictive verse that includes lines such as, “I used to run away, I didn’t want to settle down. But now I wake each day, looking for a way that I could see your face,” and she’s also included in the background vocals during the chorus.

Since Lady Gaga entered the spotlight she has aimed to be see as shocking, but have we become immune to the 'G.U.Y.' singer's particular brand of outrageous?
There’s nobody out there that can argue with us when we say that Lady GaGa aims to be shocking. Since she first burst onto the scene with her debut album The Fame in 2008 she has made a concerted effort to make sure that her music, her image and her performances are regularly debated. From outfits made entirely from raw meat to appearing onstage wearing nothing but fishnets and bubbles, Gaga has worked hard to be anything but your run-of-the-mill pop star.
Lady Gaga always aims to be outrageous
Recently Gaga has been caught lap dancing at BPM Nightclub in New York since the furor died down from her heavily criticised performance at SXSW, which saw a ‘vomit artist’ projectile vomit all over her. Twice. That two times too many. Gaga had explained before the vomit fest, “I believe being an individual and speaking your mind is one of the boldest things you can do. As for my bold act, you’ll have to wait for the show.” Whether Gaga’s act was bold and artsy or just plain bizarre is the question.

Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato have fallen out again and this time it's serious...
Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, Disney BFFs or twitter sworn enemies? Sometimes it’s hard to tell where we stand with this pair’s rocky, roller coaster friendship. Now it seems the famous frenemies might finally be done for good as they've both unfollowed each other on twitter. But where or how did this very un-Disney beef start?
Before the beef: Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato go for a hug in 2009
Firing the first shot was a pre twerking Miley, who in 2008 posted a Youtube video with her friend Mandy Jiroux that seemingly poked fun at Demi and pal Selena Gomez. You see Demi and Selena had their own Youtube channel of smiley, happy vids that reached out to their legions of fans, In one such upload Selena proudly showed off her new ‘Power Rangers’ tee and Demi revealed she’d had her teeth fixed. Miley and her friend Mandy (who?) seemed to find it all pretty funny and created their own video sending up Demi and Selena in the process. Much reference was made to Demi’s new smile (she’d had the gap in her teeth removed) causing some fans to find the clip all a little too 'Mean Girls'. Miley then quickly removed the video and later said, "if we offended them we're super-sorry. They were being funny on their show and Elvis says imitation is the greatest form of flattery, so we were imitating them." Lovato and Gomez never said whether or not they found it particularly flattering.

Selena Gomez's representative has confirmed the 21-year-old did attend a rehabilitation centre but that it was not related to drugs or alcohol.
Selena Gomez was secretly admitted to rehab in January, according to reports in a number of media outlets. The 21-year-old was admitted to a rehab facility in Arizona in order to seek treatment, if reports are to be believed. However, her representative has admitted she did enter the facility but not for substance abuse issues.

The former Disney star was admitted into Dawn at the Meadows rehabilitation facility in Arizona on January 5th of this year. Gomez's representative, speaking to E!, said "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse." She may have simply wished to enter the facility in order to take a break from her hectic schedule. This would certainly explain why she cancelled her concerts in Australia in December 2013. In an official statement the singer stated she had prioritised work and that she need some personal time, it read: "It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be."

Salena Gomez's admission that she spent two weeks in rehab is not as shocking as it should be, the actress is just one in a long list of teen stars who have sought out treatment for different problems.
Selena Gomez has admitted that she spent two weeks in a rehab centre earlier this year. Whilst a rep for the singer said it was ‘'not for substance abuse’, rumours are circulating about the reason behind her 2 week stay. Whatever the reason for Selena’s trip she has joined the ever increasing list of former Disney stars who have headed to rehab, a list which includes her BFF Demi Lovato and many more former child stars who have struggled to grow up under the spotlight.
Salena Gomez has admitted entering rehab earlier this year
It was a long time ago, but its worth remembering that the first child star to have a very public battle with drink and drugs was 'ET’s' Drew Barrymore. Drew may have not have been part of the Disney set, but the story of her troubled teen years has become legendary in Hollywood. Eventually she overcame her problems and went on to have a very successful career as an adult, appearing as a leading lady in films such as ‘Never Been Kissed’ and ‘Ever After’ and running her own production company Flower Films. Her experiencesprove that even in Hollywood adolescent problems don’t have to define your whole career.

The star is apparently unmoved by her ex's latest run-in with the law, her BFF told Ryan Seacrest earlier this week
It had been reported in recent weeks that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber looked as though they were on the path to reconciliation, having been spotted sharing a romantic segway ride together earlier this month. If Selena's pal Demi Lovato is to believed though, her fellow former Disney star isn't as cosy with her ex as the media might think, and she isn't feeling too hung up about Bieber's latest actions either.
Lovato appeared on Ryan Seacrest's 'On Air With Ryan Seacrest' radio show earlier this week, where she spoke briefly about her pal Gomez and where she stands on the whole Bieber arrest thing. Apparently she's "doing really well" and although Lovato wanted to keep what her pal had said between them, she gave off the impression that her friend isn't too bothered about what her increasingly despised former flame gets up to in his spare time.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, in recent interviews, have discussed their "close" friendship and highly praised each other for their strength.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, following their appearance together in Los Angeles on Thursday (23rd January), have discussed their friendship with various media outlets. They both agree that, despite their fall out in 2010, they are closer than ever.

The pair dined together in West Hollywood on Thursday in Craig's, a popular restaurant with the Hollywood A-list. Gomez appeared unconcerned about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's arrest.

She said, during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Friday night (24th January), that Gomez is "doing real well" after Bieber's arrest.

Joe Jonas Accused Miley Cyrus & Demi Lovato Of Introducing Him To Weed.

It’s that time again – time for an X Factor roundup – who lost, who left and who made the final six this past Thursday night ? Spoilers ahoy! Despite it being Turkey Day, Lillie McCloud and Josh Levi had one less reason to be thankful. This marked an interesting stage of the competition, as McCloud, a 54-year-old from Orlando, FL, and Levi, a 15-year-old from Houston, TX were ousted, making this the night when the eldest and one of the youngest contestants were simultaneously eliminated.
Lovato's team remained safe as Rion Paige survived to sing another day.
Levi left after finding himself in the bottom two alongside 13-year-old Rion Paige from Jacksonville, Florida.

Alternatively, the one where Tina finally gets a storyline.
Last night’s Glee episode was definitely a series high – and not just because of the surprisingly pleasant Demi Lovato cameo. But before we get into any of that, I would urge you to head over to YouTube and check out Santana’s (Naya Rivera) commercial for Yeast-i-Stat. If nothing else, Glee writers know how to make a spot-on parody of a commercial for yeast medication. Even non-fans should get a kick out of this one.
Rivera shines at the very beginning of the episode.
As for the rest of the episodes – the singing montages were solid, the relationships and character development – believable for once and this might just be the first time that Tina gets an actual complete and not-at-all-frustrating storyline. Finally, after years of falling behind for solos, boys and pretty much everything else, in this episode Tina was ecstatic to be nominated for prom queen. And while her Glee cast-members weren’t all that impressed by her announcement, the lovable Tina managed to successfully campaign and win – finally, after Kurt and Rachel in two consecutive years.

Selena and her family have been receiving congratulations via social media.
It’s been all good news for Selena Gomez recently, as the Spring Breakers star, who also recently released the highly successful Come and Get It single, has become a big sister. On Thursday, Selena’s mother, Mandy Cornett gave birth to a baby girl with husband Brian Teefey. Gomez had announced the pregnancy to her Twitter followers a month prior, saying: "Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news...My mommy's carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!"
Now, 20-year-old Selena is presumably too wrapped up in doting on her baby sister to take care of her social media duties. However, New York Daily News reports that pal and X Factor judge Demi Lovato took to Twitter immediately after hearing the news to congratulate her friend. "@selenagomez IS A BIG SISTER!!!!!! Everyone congratulate her and her family!!!!!! #CONGRATSSELENA!!!!" she tweeted Thursday, adding "#CONGRATSSELENAMANDYANDBRIAN !!!!!!"
This is the star’s first sibling. Selena’s parents separated back when the future Disney girl was just five years old, but the family has obviously made it work. Now, Gomez will have to balance family responsibilities with her career, which is on a definite rise this year. She has steadily been trying to distance herself from her Disney past. After releasing Spring Breakers, in which she plays one of four girls on a vacation that gets out of control, Selena dropped the first single off her new album and an accompanying video, showing off her sexy side. Now the actress is looking forward to future career prospects and, if recent news about her are correct, she is even prepared to do nudity for a worthwhile role.

Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it. Bittersweet, she was up, I was down.No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now?" she sings. In a video from the Washington gig, Rowland, 32, is seen sitting on a stool and singing before choking up and having to bow her head. Buoyed by the crowd, she continues the song before telling fans, "Doing this song for me was so therapeutic. Honesty, like my mama always says, is always the best policy."
Watch Kelly Rowland crying:
'Dirty Laundry' features on Rowland's forthcoming studio album - another song 'You've Changed' was released on Tuesday (May 28, 2013) and features both Beyonce and Michelle Williams. The singer was recently confirmed as a new judge on Simon Cowell's X-Factor USA having previously worked on the British version of the singing contest. She joins Cowell, Demi Lovato and Latin pop star, Paulina Rubio on the new look panel.

Vampire Weekend held off stiff competition from Demi Lovato to land their second Billboard 200 No.1.
Indie rockers Vampire Weekend have topped the Billboard 200 chart with their latest record 'Modern Vampires of the City,' besting commercial efforts from the likes of X-Factor judge Demi Lovato, Lady Antebellum and the Great Gatsby soundtrack featuring music from Jay-Z and Florence and the Machine.
The New York outfit's album sold 134,000 in its first week of sales, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. It was also the first independently distributed album to debut at No.1 on the chart since country singer Jason Aldean's 'Night Train' in November last year. It was another country star - George Strait - who finished in second place this week with sales of 120,000, while Lovato's 'Demi' sold 110,000 copies to take No.3. Last week's No.1, 'Golden' by Lady Antebellum fell to No.5 while the soundtrack to Gatsby dropped to No.4 from No.2.
Meanwhile, on Billboard's Digital Songs chart, rapper and producer team Macklemore & Ryan Lewis held the top spot with 231,000 downloads of their hit 'Can't Hold Us.' Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, featuring rapper T.I. and Pharrell Williams took second, ahead of Pink.

Albums Of Note... Get Up! pairs modern blues idol and expert slide guitarist Ben Harper with harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite. Aiming for blues authenticity, that’s exactly what Ben and Charlie achieve here. The pair of talented blues musicians fly in the face of modernity and instead strive to recreate the dusky glamour of a Chicago blues club.
“In general, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have delivered a strong, yet candid and fun blues album. This album really does not care that it is 2013, and why should it? Each of the ten songs contains something of merit. Both musicians involved are fairly prolific but this collection will doubtlessly shoot to the high end of the fans favourites in no time at all.”

Demi Lovato has teased her fans with a trailer for her forthcoming single ‘Heart Attack,’ which reveals that the American Idol judge is ready to get up close and personal in her music and confront the demons that have haunted her personal life. It’s no great secret that Demi has struggled with bulimia and self-harm in the past and she admits in the trailer “for a while, I could tell that when people would talk to me, they knew my story,” and explains that she’s “opened up more” on her new album.
There’s no official news on when the album’s due, though we know that Lovato’s next long-player will be coming out some time this year. During the making of the album, she’s explained “my life began to evolve and I started to grow. These are songs about the celebration of life and how rewarding it can be. This is what this album is about.” As Demi finishes talking, a brief clip of the single plays, with her singing “I think I’d have a heart attack” and the release date of March 4, 2013 flashes up on the screen. Not long to wait, for Lovato’s fans then.

Curves won out the day at the stad-studded VH1 Divas event that took place at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night (December 16), with the likes of Kelly Osbourne and Jenna Dewan-Tatum - wife of actor Channing Tatum - turning the heads of the paparazzi as they headed down the red carpet. Yes, while Miley Cyrus was winning attention on the stage, with The Sun reporting that she covered Billy Idol's 'Rebel Yell', off stage her conservative look was largely overlooked.
X Factor judge and Disney darling Demi Lovato has given a candid chat to Parade Magazine into what life is like as a X Factor judge, dishing the details about some of her co-judges, as well as discussing her own battles with eating disorders and self harm and how she aspires to inspire as many people as possible.
With the season finale of the X Factor USA only days away (Dec. 20), the show's name is hot on most people's lips; enter Demi Lovato to keep us up to date with what's happening behind the scenes.
The young starlet told the magazine that her time on the show has been an emotional and stressful one, but still one that she has enjoyed nonetheless. Speaking about her co-judges, she had (almost) nothing but good things to say about them, telling the mag that she considers Britney Spears to be "sweet and humble," whilst L. A. Reid, who announced he is leaving the show at the end of the series, is "hilarious and smart." Bad news for the show's head judge and creator Simon Cowell though, as Demi was much less positive, calling him "annoying and old!" What a charmer (not that we doubt Simon wouldn't want it any other way).
The latest person to exit the ever-revolving door that leads to judging on a TV talent show is La Reid, who told bosses on the X Factor that he was done with the show, he told Access Hollywood Reporter.
The head of Epic Records has decided that his time in front of the camera is done as he is now more interested in nurturing the talents already at his disposal, as well as waning to sign a few more new artists now he has a little more spare time on his hands. In a statement given to Access Hollywood, the record executive said, “I have the utmost respect for [show creator] Simon Cowell. He is the very best, and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from working with him. Working with him on X Factor has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’m honored to have sat on a panel with such incredible talent.”
Reid, who has sat beside Cowell since he exported the X Factor from Britain to the United States, said he will miss the show nonetheless, but he want to get back to his "core responsibility" of managing things at Epic.

Thursday's festive Thanksgiving episode of The X Factor USA made this years Thanksgiving one to remember for two people in particular, as both Beatrice Miller and Arin Ray were sent home on this weeks episode, as the top ten acts were narrowed down to eight.
It was double trouble for Britney Sears this week too, with Miller and Ray both being under her tutelage. There was little Brit could do for them either, with the judge and mentor telling Ray to think of his time on the show as “a learning experience,” when he was made the first person to get given the heave-ho from the show.
That meant that there was still a final two to face elimination, with youngster Beatrice Miller squaring up with CeCe Frye. Frye performed her own rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s 'Because of You,' and sang it to perfection, which turned the heat right up on Miller, heat you could see getting to the 13-year-old. Performing Dido's 'White Flag', she delivered an equally impressive performance but alas, it just wan't meant to be. The judges cast their vote, Britney said CeCe, the rest chose Bea. We'd be very surprised if the youngster didn't end up finding fame at some point in her life though, she's got the talent, just not the time to work on it properly yet.
VH1 Divas annual special has become a staple in the network's yearly plans since 1998, and this year sees Adam Lambert host the fabulous night, reports E!
This year the show will see performances from Demi Lovato, Ciara, Jordin Sparks, Miley Cyrus and Kelly Roland, and will include special tributes to the Whitney Houston, and Donna Summer- true divas. Lambert expressed his excitement about the post in a statement: "I'm so thrilled to be hosting VH1 Divas this year... I have a feeling it's going to be the most fabulous concert of the year! And LIVE!! Get ready for some amazing performances, killer fashion and fierce divas!" If Lambert performs then he'll certainly add to that list of amazing performances, but he's certainly got the killer fashion down to a T- especially given his recent change of hairstyle, now sporting a surprisingly flattering silver barnet.
Despite us all loving all the performers set for the show, we're not quite sure they quite stack up to the title 'Divas'. With previous performers including Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Celine Dion and the ultimate diva- Diana Ross. Anyway, we're open for them all to prove us wrong. VH1 Divas airs on December 16th.
It’s official: Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell in November as hosts of Fox’s flagship singing talent show, reports The New York Daily News.
It’s official: Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell in November as hosts of Fox’s flagship singing talent show, reports The New York Daily News.
"The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out," Simon Cowell said in a statement. "Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn't be happier." Lopez, 39, has experience hosting “Extra,” and Kardashian is used to being in front of the camera from her E! reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” They replace the Welsh presenter Steve Jones, who made his name in the U.K on Channel 4 hosting their youthful T4 franchise. “We have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running,” Cowell told Ellen DeGeneres last month.
Kardashian proved to be a tough cookie when it came to negotiations. Talks with the star reached a tense point when an argument over her being on two networks at once arose. However, her determined nature made the deal happen, and she can now enjoy being part of the biggest talent show on TV (once it starts beating The Voice for ratings, that is).
She admitted her feelings for the One Direction singer, as reported by Yahoo.com, when she said “He knows I have a little crush on him, and we enjoy having dinner when we get the chance. We speak and message all the time... [But] I don't want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush.”
However, talking with Teen Vogue and alluding to her recent stint in rehab, and her continued progress Lovato said of Niall: "He's a really awesome, sweet guy but [Niall]'s not my boyfriend...I'm in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself." She furthered her comment saying “Obviously, I'm still going to like people—or love them—but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be OK with being alone, first.” In 2010 the new X-Factor judge had to cancel her involvement with the Jonas Brothers tour and checked into rehab to tackle her depression and eating disorder.

Katie Couric’s bulimia battle became the subject of yesterday’s episode of her new syndicated chat show (September 24, 2012). Couric explained, in an interview with Associated Press, that she felt it was important for her to be as honest with her audience as she asks her guests to be. “I kind of hesitated to even bring it up,” she said of the eating disorder. “But I felt that if I expect people on my show to be honest, then, when relevant, I owe it to people watching to be honest myself… I wanted to focus on my guests, while acknowledging one of the reasons this issue is so important to me: I went through it."
Couric explained that she first started struggling with the illness when she was rejected by her first choice of college. “Like a lot of young women, I was struggling with my body image," she said, "and feeling like I wasn't good enough or attractive enough or thin enough.” Couric managed to control the problem with the help of a therapist and explains “I've learned how to have a much healthier relationship with food, and how to enjoy my life without obsessing about food.”
Couric was joined by Demi Lovato for the show, as she placed the focus on the show’s guests, rather than on herself. The young X Factor judge is known to have suffered with bulimia herself, so agreed to appear on Couric’s chat show to discuss her experiences with her own body image issues.
Popstar and 'Camp Rock' actress Demi Lovato is greeted with excited screams from her fans as she surprises a bunch of students at the Young Women's Leadership School in East Harlem, New York who are having an 'anti-bullying' assembly campaigning for a 'Drama Free School Year' as part of the Secret's Mean Stinks campaign which Lovato is an ambassador of.
The Demi Lovato X factor was there for all to see as the feisty young star came out the better of a verbal ding dong with her boss Simon Cowell on Conan O'Brien's chat show. The Sun reports that the duo were there to promote the new series of X Factor, which has just kicked off out in the States, and Lovato brought exactly the same outspoken energy that she's been displaying so far on the program to the chat show couch.
Joking to O'Brien, Lovato quipped "We're trying to reach a younger demographic, and I don't feel we're going to accomplish that when he's showing more cleavage than Britney [Spears] and I are." Cowell, who has recently seen revelations come out in public that suggested he'd told UK X Factor bosses to re-hire Dannii Minogue "for her t*ts", suggested that Lovato and third judge Britney Spears could show more cleavage. However, he was fought down by the 20 year-old who also joked that normally Simon "could braid his chest hair".
Lovato also called Cowell an "a**hole" during the broadcast and, feeling picked on, the beleaguered music mogul turned to O'Brien and pleaded: "Tell her to stop picking on me, please." There was no one on his side in front of the cameras though, with the talk show host replying sarcastically: "Don't pick on him! He's a kind man who's NEVER insulted anyone!" Poor Simon.
