Demi Lovato will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, and after getting a sneak peek at her interview, we have a feeling she might have offended a few folks with her response to why she recently went blonde.
When asked about her ever-changing hair color, Demi tells Ellen, "I do this often … as you’ve heard I’m Bi-polar. So I change my hair a lot." While we get that the singer/actress is trying to make a joke about the situation, no one in the audience laughed and Ellen looked a bit uncomfortable and quickly tried to tiptoe around the subject.
Demi opened up about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder in an interview with Cosmopolitan last July, and she was very candid about how she handled the news. "I felt relieved when I found out. Like I'm not completely crazy; there's a medical reason for all of it," she said. "It's a daily thing; you don't get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own."
We applaud Demi for being so honest, but remember when she attacked Disney for making a joke about eating disorders on their show Shake It Up? Back in 2011, Demi slammed her former employer and tweeted, "'I could just eat you up, well if I ate' - Disney Chanel's [sic] Shake It Up…. What are we promoting here? #notfunnyATALL ... I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress' from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make [a] joke about that very disease."
Disney later apologized for the incident, but we have to ask: Is Demi's crack about bipolar disorder #notfunnyATALL or did you find it amusing?
