Demi Lovato Says Friend Iggy Azalea Is “Very, very, very real”


Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea are besties…even making gingerbread houses on the weekends. Demi explains why she connected so well with rapper Iggy…”She’s very, very, very real. What you see is what you get.”

“We met at Jennifer Lopez’s Halloween party. I was dressed as Lucille Ball and Wilmer was Desi Arnaz. I’m kind of a little socially awkward when it comes to parties and going out because I feel like, unless you’re going to get fucked up, everybody’s awkward. Since I don’t do that anymore, and Iggy wasn’t drinking—she doesn’t do anything—I was kind of like, “Hey. I’m a big fan. I love your music.” We start talking, and it turns out that we’re neighbors and we didn’t even know.”

Then I saw her at all the Jingle Ball shows. Then we got to actually hang, and we just became close. She’s so awesome. She’s very, very, very real. What you see is what you get. I think sometimes that pushes people away, but that’s what I admire about her. She’s the furthest thing from fake. In this entertainment business, that’s so hard to find with anybody. That’s why I don’t have any very famous friends. The very few that I do have are real.”

She adds, “The reason why we relate a lot to each other and the people around me—my close friends who aren’t necessarily famous or even in the industry—is that we’ve all been through a lot and we’ve come out strong. Iggy has really gone through shit and she’s come out super strong and didn’t let that take her down a devastating path. There’s respect there. The fact that she’s gone through so much and I’ve gone through so much and on a Friday night we can make gingerbread houses together instead of going out and drinking our sorrows away—that’s fucking cool. I love that. It’s nice to have somebody who’s younger in the entertainment business who doesn’t do all of that stuff.”

Some people don’t exactly think Iggy is real…she’s Australian with a southern accent and she’s had some plastic surgery, but Demi sure defends her bud. That’s sweet!
