Why does Demi Lovato think the word “alien” is offensive to extraterrestrials?
Singer Demi Lovato, who is clearly taking it upon themselves to act as the planet’s alien ambassador, has now publicly stated that we should officially retire the word “alien” when referring to extraterrestrials . . . it’s offensive. Looks like cancel culture is getting all of us, now, from Will Smith in Men in Black all the way to, well, Will Smith in Independence Day. But why? Because we’re using the word “alien”.
While talking shop on their E.T. project on Australia’s PEDESTRIAN.tv, Demi noted how “I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now. But, I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything. That’s why I like to call them ETs! So yeah, that’s a little tidbit. A little information that I learned.”
Of course, Demi Lovato is plugging her show Unidentified on Peacock, where they and their buddies go run around and find proof of ali, sorry, “extraterrestrial” life. And look, we understand that the term “alien” does offer several problematic connotations, but getting rid of the word outright is a big ask here, Demi. Let’s first see what product you have to offer with this new show of yours. We mean, you have seen an E.T. before . . .
Demi Lovato claims in a recent interview with E! News how she believes she saw a UFO last October at Joshua Tree National Park and that they’re real. “I basically saw this blue orb that was about 50 feet away, maybe less, and it was kind of like floating above the ground, just like 10 or 15 feet, and it was kind of keeping its distance from me,” Lovato said. “It was a beautiful and incredible experience.”
“It definitely changed the way that you see the world,” they added. “You have an inkling and then all of a sudden that inkling is confirmed. It changes your reality, for sure. The feeling that you get from these beings is so warm and loving and accepting that it’s just overwhelming joy that happens when you’re able to make contact.”
“When I say make contact, I just mean intentionally try to meditate and try to manifest sightings,” Lovato told the website. “It’s not that I’m actually, like, shaking hands with these beings, although I would love that. I think these beings are extremely peaceful and loving and when they show up, you can absolutely feel that concept.” Cool story, Demi! It seems pretty fitting that you’re now hosting an alien show on Peacock. What?
Unidentified on Peacock
Unidentified with Demi Lovato, produced by Peacock, features the Camp Rock star, their sister Dallas Lovato, and their best friend Matthew Scott Montgomery, with Lovato also set to be an executive producer on the alien project. The show, of course, comes off the heels of the singer’s YouTube four-part series Dancing with the Devil, in which Demi delves into the dark & difficult details of her substance abuse within Hollywood.
Peacock made the following statement upon announcing the show last Spring: “Demi is a true believer, and during this courageous adventure, she hopes to convince her friends, family, and her millions of followers that not only are there intelligent beings beyond Earth but that they are already here!” We can’t wait for Demi to prove if Aliens are real or not!
The streamer continued: “Demi plans to learn enough about the extraterrestrials through interviewing scientists, alien abductees, and their own experiments to initiate those close encounters and make peace with the aliens, and ultimately save ourselves. This series will be an immersive docu-follow exploration of Demi’s quest, told through her uniquely audacious and entertaining filter.”
