Demi Lovato should stick to acting and singing because she sounds like a complete idiot when she talks.
On aliens, Lovato states, “I know that they are real. How self-centered would we be, as humans, to believe that we are the only living things in the universe?” Meyers ain’t buying it, “Well, call me self-centered, because I don’t believe in aliens.” On mermaids, she mentions how Christopher Columbus saw three of them on his journey to America but that they don’t look like the pretty sea creatures we see in books. She calls mermaids, “an alien species living in parts of the Indian Ocean, which we have never explored before as human beings — and Christopher Columbus had actually seen three mermaids on his way to America.” When Meyers wants her to draw a pic of what she thinks these alien mermaids really look like, she says that there are pictures online.
Ouch. This is painful to watch. But, sadly, (I KNOW MANY OF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME) people really do believe this stuff.
Here is the clip from the interview
I get really irritated when people in the skeptical community tell me I waste my time harping over and over again about obvious things. They fail to understand that the average person has a hard time judging good information from poor info and selectively believe what they see on TV or the internet because it sounds cool. We have to keep at it and at least not let SOME fall into this void of nonsense – conspiracy theories, moon landing hoax, aliens, Atlantis and mermaids.
Good on Seth Meyers for keeping his composure. You know what, Demi, I’m not a cynic, I value reality. It’s not sad. It’s enlightening. What’s sad is that you sound like you are 10 years old. I hope that changes.
We can shatter Lovato’s delusion-conclusions pretty easily. But it’s based on belief, not evidence so it’s not going to help much. I don’t know where she does her “research” but I wouldn’t recommend following her lead.
(Am I going to get Demi-hate mail now?)
