Last night Demi Lovato appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to perform her latest single “Neon Lights,” but something much more important happened during the show. Like much, much, much more important. Demi debuted her new blue hair. DEMI DYED HER HAIR BLUE. That’s right, I’m afraid she just blue herself.
Then earlier today Demi shared a selfie of her new look on Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “LIKE NEON HAAAIIIIIRRRRR!!!!” Is this a new thing she’s doing for each of her singles? Some kind of brand tie-in wherein she does something related to her song’s lyrics? If that’s the case, I’m uttering a thousand and one “phews” that she chose to start after “Heart Attack” debuted. Having an actual heart attack would have simply gone too far.
Since Demi has made it clear she doesn’t care if you like her as a blonde, I’m sure she also doesn’t care if you like her as a blue, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to talk about it. I’m… not so crazy about it. In theory I think it’s really fun and cool and funky (three adjectives I am an absolute authority on), but she’s still got A LOT of non-blue root showing at the top, which was clearer under the lights of the studio during her performance. As a result, it kind of looks like she did a slapstick routine in a punk hair salon and landed in some blue hair dye that only covered part of her head. At least she seems happier about it than Kate Hudson.
But I am loving the biker boots, and I’m not sure if that’s her house or a hotel room or just somebody else’s house where she happens to be taking a selfie, but whatever it is I want to go to there right now, even if I have to dye my hair blue to get in. So much floor space! Anyway, you do you,
