DEMI LOVATO TELLS 'PEOPLE' LIFE COULDN'T BE BETTER
Meanwhile, Demi has told People mag that she has been able to live out her dreams, despite her disorder. She explained, "I’m living well with my mental illness – I am actually functioning like a very happy person would. I couldn’t be happier today. Life is really, really great. I have a brand-new puppy and I’m able to not only take care of myself but take care of him as well. I’m living my dream. Life is pretty amazing."
Demi went on to say that the support from her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama has helped her get to where she is today. She continued, "He’s been so helpful when it comes to being a part of my support group. The people that are closest to me in my life are understanding and are willing to call me out on things if they notice unhealthy behaviors coming into play. And he’s one of those people who’ve stuck by my side from day one of me getting help and saying, 'Listen, I’m not going to be a 'yes' person.' Someone that just says ‘yes’ to you because they’re afraid of what will happen to them because they don’t want to get out of the circle. He’s like, ‘I will always be honest with you and I always want the best for you,’ and that’s what he’s done and I’m so grateful to have him in my life."

MARIAH CAREY THROWS SHADE AT 'AMERICAN IDOL'
Mariah Carey is throwing shade at American Idol. During an Australian radio interview, when asked if MiMi will appear on the show for its final season, Mariah said, "Hell no, absolutely not. That was the worst experience of my life. I’m not going to get into what it was. But let’s just say, I don’t think they had any interest in us to have a good experience through that show. Putting two females against each other wasn’t cool. It should have been about the contestants instead of about some non-existent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness."

CHRIS BROWN POSTS OPEN LETTER ON INSTAGRAM
Yesterday (May 28th), Chris Brown took to Instagram to post an honest open letter, reflecting on his past mistakes. He wrote, "I'm Konfuzed, I always thought I knew the concept of love. Fame and Money can get in the way of that. Most of my issues always deal with love and me being in my feelings. Not to mention me being a dog sometimes. I can't speak for everyone but I can say that my actions contributed a lot to my karma. Being jealous and angry and controlling."
He continued, "There has been times where I looked in the mirror and hated the person I see. I talk to God a lot now. He's given me so much and I feel like I waste his gifts becuz of my impulsive personality. The world is full of negativity and I feel I play a part in it becuz of the choices I've made or mistakes. I tend to accept the negative or the riff raff becuz I know what it's like to be a young black 'n*gga' in America. I always see the good in people even when they don't see it. I love others more than myself at times. Everything u see on the surface does not reflect what's inside."
