Demi Lovato and I are pretty good pals in the dream palace that lives inside my brain, so I typically expect her to at least give me a heads up before she froths herself into a Twitter frenzy. But since we’re not actually friends in real life, that doesn’t always happen. Luckily, though, I’m something of a pop culture detective, and I’m about to get on the case and figure out why Demi is so angry at The Daily Beast right now.
I don’t know what time zone Demi was in when she posted her little rant, but at 2:00am my time (EST), she put up this little gem:
@thedailybeast such a classy “news site” you are. Writing horrible things about people you know NOTHING about. Get a LIFE you ignorant fucks

HEY THERE GIRL. How we doing? What the hell could The Daily Beast have written to get you that amped up? Could it have been this post talking about her Twitter reaction to those alleged nude photos? I’m guessing not, because there’s nothing too crazy in there, and also the post is from April 7th.
Hmmm. Could it be this one from yesterday, titled ‘Why Women Want Hollywood Lothario Wilmer Valderrama’? That seems more promising, but let’s check out an excerpt just to make sure:
“Yo Wilmer Valderrama’s so culturally irrelevant, he relies on the commodification of his young girlfriend’s body in order to re-enter the current celebrity conversation.”
Oh okay yeah, that’d probably do it, given that Wilmer and Demi have been dating since who knows when. They’ve only recently started to be more open about it, but that’s definitely something I could see Demi getting defensive about. Especially as it implies — or not really implies, even, as it’s pretty explicit — that Wilmer has nothing to offer in the personality department and is only successful with the young women of Hollywood because he’s ‘been blessed’ below the belt with a ‘Venezuelan man-trophy’.
Yeah I can imagine how that could ruffle some feathers. Demi’s, specifically.
