Demi Lovato served as Grand Marshal of the LA Pride parade: good pick?

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato served as Grand Marshal at the LA Gay Pride parade in West Hollywood on Sunday. This parade was huge! The crowd surpassed 400,000 people, and Demi rocked out in a leather suit that the Mail is calling 1980s punk inspired. To me, this suit is simply a much more decked-out version of Demi’s everyday attire. She’s really stuck in the 1980s, stylewise, but Demi comes by her affection for the decade more honestly than Gaga.

Demi was flanked by a number of dancers who were dressed in colorful latex suits. You can see some footage of her performance here. She was doing her Grand Marshal thing on a float, but she was also filming a video for her new song, “I Don’t Care.” I think Demi was actually a really great choice to helm this parade. She’s not a flashy choice, but she has an audience all the same. It’s also cool that she used the venue to film her own video. That immortalizes the event and cements the parade’s message.

The world tour train is about to start for Demi. She promoted it by talking about mermaid aliens, and many of us had a good chuckle. That was a weird interview, but Demi’s career is pretty solid. Forbes notes that her secondary ticket sales are 21% higher than they were for her last tour. I wish Demi well. She’s overcome drug use and Disney codependence. She’s struggled with an eating disorder and Simon Cowell. She’s still here, and she was fabulous at this parade.

    I’m worried for her over all those bangles though-like she’s trying to hide her wrists? :/

    I agree! I think she is a great choice!

    Good for her. She looks really happy.

    Bottom of the shaved head barrel, if you ask me. Blah.

  5. K.B. says:

    Bless her heart – she keeps trying to be famous but she can’t get enough people to care.

  6. Jules says:

    Did she find any alien mermaids there?

  7. cro-girl says:

    I don’t know… she creeps me out. She always looks like she’s one mood pill away from committing a string of murders.

    I like Demi more than I like Gaga but please tell me how Demi’s affection for the 80s more honest than Gaga’s?! Demi was born in 1992 for goodness sake LOL.

    I like her. I think she’s a good role model for girls (or boys) dealing with an eating disorder. She was honest and showed no shame. That’s important.

    ETA: plus she’s not sickly looking, she looks healthy. Who knows if she is of course.

    I don’t really get this half-shaved head thing…

    I like Demi, she just seems very gutsy and is trying very hard to get a career going and I respect her for that. I imagine it takes a lot of work to keep the momentum going especially after her rehab issues. I like the half shaved hair look on her.

    Does she have a big gay following or something? I don’t know, I don’t understand the choices they make for the LA Pride Parade a lot of the time.
    To me, the choices they make for the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras here in Aus make a lot more sense. The hosts are almost always celebrities who are well know for being LGBT or for their popularity amongst the LGBT population. Sometimes it seems to me they just grab whoever they can get for the LAPP.

    It doesn’t offend me or anything, but I do wonder if there could have been a better choice out there… and if there’s some huge gay Demi demographic nobody’s let me in on.
