After revealing the darkest depths of her drug and alcohol addictions on Dec. 9, Demi opened up about her recovery on ‘The Late Late Show.’ But during her inspirational one-on-one, the singer seemed to throw a little shade at one of her pop rivals. Do you think Demi dissed Miley on purpose?
At the moment, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus‘s personas couldn’t be more different. Miley is all “We Can’t Stop” while Demi seriously had to stop to overcome addictions to drugs and alcohol in 2010 and 2011. And when Demi was on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Dec. 9, it was clear that Demi did NOT approve of her fellow pop star’s lifestyle.
Demi Lovato: Dissing Miley Cyrus For Using Molly?
Demi, who also opened up about her addiction and recovery in an all-access interview with Access Hollywood on Dec. 9, explained to Craig why she’s so outspoken about her previous dark times — and why she’s so upfront about staying sober.

“I’ve always been a really motivated, driven fighter, so when I first got sober I was like, ‘I’m gonna show all of you. You think I can’t get sober? Well watch me!'” Demi said. “And then now I’ve stuck to it because it’s made my life so much better. And there’s a lot of young people who look up to me and there needs to be someone that stands out and says it’s not about molly and partying and all that stuff.”
Now seems like a pretty good time to remind you that Miley has a lyric that says, “We like to party/Dancing with molly.”
While we totally applaud Demi for sticking to her guns and making a point to be a good role model, we can’t help but think Miley is collateral damage in her message of sobriety. Because it definitely seems like Demi is saying that Miley isn’t being an appropriate role model.
Demi Lovato: ‘I’m So Protective’ Over Miley Cyrus
This isn’t the first time Demi’s talked about her concern for Miley’s lifestyle.
“[Miley] knows how I feel about the whole partying thing,” Demi told MTV in July. “I love her to death, and I’m always like, ‘Okay, just be careful.’ I care for her so much [that] I’m so protective.”
Considering everything that Demi has been through over the years, she’d definitely know. Though it sort of sounds like her concern is morphing into something a tad harsher.
