Your Daily Relationship Advice from Demi Lovato

“If he wants to talk to you, HE will call/text you. If he doesn’t, then he doesn’t want to. Never call the guy first. #datingproblems”.

“The hard part is waiting for that moment if you really like them.. Or getting disappointed when your phone rings and it’s not him”.

“Oh jesus people, don’t get your panties in a wad. I’m not being sexist, I’m being old-fashioned. Can’t ever say sh**on this thing.”

See these things? These are the things that Demi Lovato‘s been putting up on her Twitter account lately. Aren’t they gems? This is Demi being all melodramatic and, according to some of her Twitter followers, “old-fashioned.” Is she old-fashioned? I don’t know about all that. But I do know that all of this relationship nonsense and airing-out of her dirty laundry is getting pretty old.

Get a boyfriend, Demi – or don’t – and keep it to yourself, OK? No amount of faux-wisdom is going to make you appealing to either sex, alright?

Rihanna Defends Chris Brown

Ugh.

From Radar Online:

The Caribbean Queen shed some light on the situation in an interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest Thursday, explaining the rationale behind their puzzling pair of performances on each other’s new tracks, her “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up the Music,” three years after he brutally pummeled her following a pre-Grammy party in Hancock Park, a suburb of Los Angeles.

“I already spoke to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person I could see doing it,” Rihanna, the best-selling digital artist of all-time, told Seacrest.

She added that “despite everything else,” Brown’s the top selling R&B star in the world and a no-brainer to collaborate with on a professional level. (On the controversial dance hit, he sings to Rihanna, “Girl I wanna f*** you right now. Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body.”)

Brown, in turn, asked her to appear on the remix to his song, “Turn Up the Music” — “One for my fans, one for his fans,” she explained.

Subtly referring to the beating she endured at Brown’s hands — which he’s still on probation for — Rihanna said “there shouldn’t be a divide between my fans and his fans.

“It’s music and it’s innocent.”

So there shouldn’t be a divide between Rihanna‘s fans and Chris‘s fans. I’m not quite sure I get it. First, I didn’t realize there were actual Chris fans willing to admit they were Chris fans out there (it’s like, come on. Even if you’re a fan of his music, how can you even be SUCH a fan that you’re willing to publicly admit it? Everyone I know that respects Chris Brown as an artist – and only an artists – is way embarrassed to even admit that shit. That’s the kind of stuff they keep to themselves), and second, why is Rihanna even touching this topic with a ten-foot pole? Is she preparing the world for the oh-so-shocking revelation that the two are hooking up again? Is that what this is? Because even though people are probably shockingly disappointed, I don’t think they’re shockingly shocked. Excuse me while I go soak my eyes in borax.

Carrie Underwood Really Likes to Please Her Husband, Huh?

I like Carrie Underwood. Seriously, I really do. I’m not a huge fan of the whole country thing, but I think she’s a really sweet girl, I love her story, I love that she’s probably the most famous American Idol ever (and ever will be), and I think she’s genuinely a good, positive role model for little girls growing up with a media that constantly tells them that they’re not good enough. Carrie Underwood is awesome, OK?

But I read an interview that she recently did with Self magazine, and I have to say – it was corny as all hell. I was able to appreciate it for its good-heartedness and its truth, but there was deep-down feminist part of me that kind of cringed when I read the things she likes to do to make her husband happy, and the things she seeks to reaffirm that she’s the bees knees.

Shall I go on?

From Self, what she had to say about dressing to please her husband – and no one else:

“I get texts from Mike when I’m on a red carpet that read ‘You’re so hot!’ I like that. Words of affirmation mean a lot to me. But my husband is also pretty conservative. When I’m wearing some outfits, he’ll say, ‘That dress is a little short, don’t ya think?’ He would never tell me I can’t do or wear something or make me feel bad, but I’m a married lady now, so I try to be respectful of my husband. I want to look sexy for him, and I appreciate that he wants to look nice for me, too.”

So, alright. I get that it’s “nice” she wants to look “nice” for her husband, and I’m just so sure he feels the same about her. I have no doubts that he likes to look “nice” for her, “too.” Oh, “sorry.” Did I get “carried away” with the “quotes”? My “bad.” But you know what’s also nice? Looking nice for yourself before looking nice for anyone else. And someone appreciating you for what you look like even when you know you look like hot garbage on a humid day. That’s cool as well.

I’m not saying that Carrie’s husband gets carried away with his machismo role as husband (“That dress is a little short, don’t ya think?”), but I am saying that maybe Carrie just shouldn’t, you know … try so hard, I suppose.
