Demi Lovato Tweeted A Heartbreaking Tribute To Her Dad That Will Make You Want To Hug Yours

I think we can all agree that Demi Lovato is one of the realest and most inspirational celebrities out there right now. She is very open and honest about her battles with mental illness, eating disorders, and self harm, she knows how to classily shade former boyfriends that she’s too good for now, and she looks flawless when sharing a makeup-free selfie on Instagram. The girl has basically got it all going on at such a young age.

It’s sometimes hard to forget how young she is when she handles everything in life with such grace…and an awesome hair cut and color, like the new purple dreads she’s now rocking. True to form of her constant honesty and desire to not hide from sharing her pain with the world, she took to Twitter on June 20 to share a photo collage of her and her father to commemorate one year since his passing from his battle with cancer.

Though Demi has been raised by her mother and stepfather since her parents divorce in 1994, she still maintained a relationship with her father, though it was sometimes strained. From these pics, you can tell that she is still coming to terms with his death and is doing so like any other girl her age would.

After the collage was posted, Demi tweeted, “My dad suffered from severe mental illness so at least there’s peace in knowing he’s not suffering anymore.”

Wow, Demi. Way to break our hearts and also not shy away from the fact that mental illness runs in her family. She is constantly bringing awareness to the effects of mental illness and even goes as far as calling out celebs, like Lady Gaga, who sometimes glamorize eating disorders. Demi always confronts these problems head on, and we love her for it. Demi Lovato: life/hair role model of our dreams.

      I love Demi Lovato and her ability and poignancy to deal with her/her family issues and use her celebrity to spread awareness instead of covering them up.

      • Alana Vincenza

        She’s seriously just so open about everything she’s been through and mental illness can use all the publicity it can get so people suffering from the same things know they’re not alone. I might be turning into a Lovatic…

        You and Lily are CompletelyFucktardedFangirls. Get a life.

      • Lily Savage

        Yaaaaas thank you! Someone is finally putting us in our place!

      • J. Audobon Woodlore

        On your knees would at least be useful. It’s how Demi got her start!

      • M_G

        And how did you get yours? I assume the answer involves you being dropped on your head repeatedly as an infant?

      • M_G

        Interesting, interesting…..so you believe spending your time leaving comments which are vile (and stupid….it’s important to distinguish the smart assholes from the stupid ones) is a great use of YOUR life? Just curious.

    • J. Audobon Woodlore

      Her dad is dead. He doesn’t use Twitter anymore. So this “tribute” is no more than another narcissistic publicity stunt.

      • Alana Vincenza

        Or, ya know, she’s a grieving daughter and this is how she is coping with the loss of a parent.

      • J. Audobon Woodlore

        Only your screwed-up generation thinks social media tributes to dead people is an appropriate way to grieve.

      • Alana Vincenza

        And apparently only your screwed up generation thinks it’s okay to call out a daughter for missing her dead father. Goodness, you give us good-for-nothing millennials something so great to look up to!

      • Samantha Escobar

        And only your screwed-up generation thinks their repugnant and reprehensible comments on the Internet will change people’s minds. (And seemingly doesn’t understand that you’re basically supporting the “narcissistic publicity stunt” you’re so upset about by clicking on the article and commenting in the first place. How progressive of you!)

      • J. Audobon Woodlore

        I am having fun at your expense, you StupidFuckingCunt.

      • Samantha Escobar

        At my expense? What am I expending? What negative thing is happening to me?

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Goodbye to this comment!

      • J. Audobon Woodlore

        It’s so nice of you to do more than just delete. You’re so cute when you get all huffy. Perks your nips right out!

      • M_G

        Oh!! NOW I get it…..you have problems performing sexually, and as such must resort to comments like these to inflate your own ego (since you cannot inflate….well, you know….). My sincerest apologies. I didn’t realize you were suffering from a medical condition (other than blatant stupidity, of course). Have you seen a doctor? I hope they can help. #EndTheStigmaOfSexualInadequacy
