Hollywood events can be brutal, even when you're a celebrity. Back in 2016, Demi Lovato made it very clear that she wouldn't be attending another Met Gala, and now she's revealing exactly why.

 

In her new Billboard cover story, the "Confident" singer opened up about her brutal experience at the 2016 Met Gala, and it was due to another celebrity. 

I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala fake and sucking the fashion industry's dk.

"I had a terrible experience," Lovato recalled. "This one celebrity was a complete bch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink." 

 

She texted her manager, then went straight to a 10 p.m. Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

 

"I changed my clothes, but I still had my diamonds on millions of dollars of diamonds on in an AA meeting," she continued. "And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala fake and sucking the fashion industrys dk."

 

Rewind back to the 2016 Met, Lovato took to Instagram to post after the glamorous event that she would never return but didn't disclose any details though she shared a very telling photo from the carpet. The photo (which went viral at the time) shows the singer standing awkwardly alongside designer Jeremy Scott and Nicki Minaj, but it was the rapper's face that told a whole different story. Minaj was angrily glaring at Lovato sending her blatant daggers. 

 

"This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met," Lovato wrote after the event with laughing emojis and the hashtags "#sofuckingawkward" and "#notforme."

 

The 25-year-old also took to Snapchat at the time to share an image of her distorted face pondering a question with the caption, "When you aren't mentioned in a post but didn't do s--t to the other person." 

 

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer later tweeted out, "p.s. some of y'all need to learn how to take a joke.. I'm obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life."
