Demi Lovato Used To Only Have Guy Friends Because "Girls Are Too Much Drama"

As we all know, Wannabe Guys’ Girls are the enemy of betches everywhere. As soon as you hear a fellow female-identified person say they “Just get along better with guys” you know that girl is probably both shady and annoying AF. Like, I’m sorry, but if you are unable to maintain a postive relationship with a full 50% of the human population, the problem is on you. Like, what kind of fucked up thought process even goes into saying that, let alone saying it as if it’s something that makes you seem cool and not psycho? Luckily for those of us who are still baffled by the WGG phenomenon (You seriously don’t want anyone to help you pick up clothes and stalk your ex on Insta? Really?) Demi Lovato, who has low-key gone from being the annoying fake Selena Gomez in Camp Rock to a seemingly very chill celebrity with at few good songs and an insane body, has pulled back the curtain on the troubled psyche behind Wannabe Guys’ Girls everywhere.

In discussing the method behind her portrayal of Smurfette in the upcoming movie Smurfs: Lost Village (let the ridiculousness of that sentence just wash over you), Demi revealed that she was, in fact, a guys’ girl and it was for the exact reason we always suspected: jealousy. “In my work environment, I used to only surround myself with men,” she said. “I only had guys in my band, and I toured with guys and my tour manager was a guy and this and that.” Demi did not, however, confirm that her favorite quote is “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

So there it is. As we’ve always suspected, Demi got trapped into the WGG mentality because she had trust issues and was worried that bringing other females around would mean having to compete with them for guys and shit—because everyone knows that’s every woman’s sole purpose for existing. Also, let’s not forget that the “men” she surrounded herself with here are most likely The Jonas Brothers, which is pretty sad considering that they were both sober and celibate at that time. Can you imagine anything more boring than hanging out with a bunch of dudes who aren’t even into getting drunk and hooking up, aka one of the main reasons for keeping men around in the first place? I truly cannot.

Demi then went on to bravely speak about her decision to leave the WGG lifestyle, in favor of hanging out with women and reaching her full potential. Guess she finally realized that having someone who is half-asleep and just grunts in approval while you talk shit is significantly inferior to a female bestie who will not only agree with all your shit talking, but add onto it with important gossip of her own. That is a service we all know men (gays excluded) simply cannot provide. 

“Now I’ve made it a point to surround myself with strong women and it’s really made a difference in my life,” she said, which fully puts into perspective her recent shading of Taylor Swift’s as a bad feminist. She was probably just so shocked to see Taylor not taking full advantage of all her female friendships, having seen how horrible life without them can be. It makes perfect sense. Also, and this cannot be overstated, Taylor Swift is fucking psycho

Demi also went on to say “I really relate to Smurfette, because I was the only female for a little bit [in my world],” which is a fully absurd statement coming from a 24-year-old woman, and also implies that, much like Smurfette, all her male “friends” low-key wanted to fuck her. Another point we’ve made several times confirmed by Demi.

Demi finished out the interview by saying that she has done a complete 180 from her former guys’ girl self, and has now surrounded herself with “role models and positive influences” which seems like a much better deal than spending your days comparing purity rings with Joe Jonas. Good call, Demi. Now just take the “Live, Laugh, Love” poster off your bedroom wall and you can come sit with us.
