The singer asked a fellow celebrity out!
Demi Lovato is shooting their shot. The 29-year-old singer invited Schitt's Creek star Emily Hampshire on the latest episode of their podcast 4D With Demi Lovato, where the 40-year-old actress revealed that they met after Lovato slid into her DMs.
"You slid in my DMs and you said, 'Hey, I like you on the show. We should kick it sometime'", Hampshire recalled. "And then you said, below it, 'And by kick it, I mean go on a date. I find you attractive.' You made it clear it was a date. And I loved that because sometimes that's confusing. I'm decades older than you, so 'kick it,' I was looking it up."
Lovato then said that Hampshire called out their age gap, explaining that she didn't think they'd find the same things funny.
"You also said, 'Think of Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor.' And then right after you were like, 'I don't mean you're the Holland Taylor!'", said Hampshire, referring to 78-year-old Taylor's relationship with Sarah Paulson, who is 46. "I thought it was the funniest thing in the whole world because I was a Holland Taylor in that situation. Proud to be."
Lovato, who came out as non-binary earlier this year, laughed off the awkward exchange.
"A non-binary person can dream. And they, she -- I was a 'she' at the time -- she was dreaming big. I was like, 'What's the worst that could happen?' And I made a really good friend. You're a dope friend, and I'm happy we became friends", they said.
During their conversation, both stars revealed they are currently single, with Lovato calling off their engagement to Max Ehrich in 2020. Meanwhile Hampshire became engaged to singer Teddy Geiger in November 2018, but their relationship ended in June 2019.
