Demi Lovato: Club Promoters Gave Me Free Drugs

Demi's Diagnosis

“I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up.’ Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass. I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.” 

– Demi Lovato opened up in the UK magazine Fabulous about her drug addiction, which, although she doesn’t name it directly, implies she was using an upper like cocaine. Demi has been in and out of rehab and also been public about her diagnosis of bipolar disorder, bulimia and cutting. I’ve been impressed with her candor and I’m really impressed now that she seems to have self-awareness about herself, her addictions, and her so-called “friends”/the people who enable her. There’s nothing sadder than someone who never hears the word “no” and has no idea people are kissing their ass. [TMZ]

Kate Middleton isn’t just an English rose glowing with natural beauty. She also fancies a bit of bee venom on her skin — AKA “natural” Botox — to sooth lines and wrinkles. Her stepmother-in-law, Camilla Parker-Bowles, turned her on to the $265 bee venom facial by aesthetician Deborah Mitchell, who works with Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. Mitchell runs a London spa called Heaven and has been working with Camilla for seven years; no doubt due in part to her discretion regarding celeb clients, she began working with Kate shortly after her engagement.

“She-Hulk” Lives: 24-Year-Old Boston Woman Catches Subway Perv

Just call her She-Hulk: a 24-year-old redhead went Marvel Comics on a subway perv who exposed himself to her while riding the Boston T. The anonymous woman said she was listening to music on a crowded B-line when she saw a man hovering over her, exposing himself. She started screaming for help, she told the Boston Herald, but none of the other passengers came to her aid. In fact, one male passenger shrugged, she said. So “She-Hulk” came out: as the perv tried to run away at one stop, she grabbed  his sweatshirt and “berated” him as she called the cops — even while the guy was struggling to get away. The 37-year-old perv, Michael Galvin, has been charged with open and gross lewdness. The woman (who, like most superheroes, prefers to hide under a cloak of anonymity to protect her privacy) said she’d just had enough. “I’ve had enough of being harassed on the street. I’m tired of it and I want it to end. It was the last straw,” she said. “He kept saying sorry, but he was just sorry for himself.” Respect, sister. [Boston Herald]
