Demi Lovato Canceled Her North Carolina Concerts To Protest Anti-LGBT Law… So Why Is She Still Performing In Dubai Next Month??

no title

She finally got her Grammy nomination… so we guess she's done playing politics.

Demi Lovato took a stand for equal rights nearly a year ago when she and Nick Jonas canceled their Future Now Tour stops in North Carolina over the state's anti-transgender House Bill 2.

Since then, the Stone Cold singer has publicly taken a break from the business — except for the fact that she's still set to perform at Dubai's RedFestDXB music festival next month.

But while we were completely supportive of Dem's decision to let her North Carolina shows go south, we can't help but notice that Dubai is notoriously even worse with LGBT rights… so why is she still performing for them?

Oh, right — money.

We can't think of any other possible reason as to why she'd be so blatantly contradicting herself.

But Demi isn't the only one. Other socially aware A-Listers like Mike Posner, Alessia Cara, The Veronicas, G-Eazy, Sean Paul, Daya, and Tove Lo are also lending their talents to the February 2-3 weekend festival… so maybe the pay just really is that good!

Do U think Demi Lovato owes it to her LGBT Lovatics NOT to perform for Dubai??

Electoral Integrity Project Finds North Carolina Is No Longer Technically A Democracy!

no title

North Carolina is totally flunking Integrity 101.

The Electoral Integrity Project is an independent study by Harvard University and the University of Sydney that grades nations' election processes to understand what we can learn from and change about them.

Usually they deal with third world countries and emerging governments.

But since the 2016 U.S. election failed its citizens to an unprecedented end, the EIP also graded all 50 states in this year's study.

Using the same metric, each state was assigned a score on a scale of 1 to 100 in legal framework and voter registration — and unsurprisingly, North Carolina scored a 58, meaning it'll probably have to go to summer school.

EIP adviser Andrew Reynolds, a political science professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, said the state's ranking puts it on par with "authoritarian states and pseudo-democracies like Cuba, Indonesia, and Sierra Leone."

In an op-ed with The News & Observer, he wrote:

JoJo, Alessia Cara, & DNCE's JinJoo Lee Can Only Collab In A Bathroom Stall… But It Totally Works!

Filed under: Music MinuteJoJoAmazingGirl PowerAlessia Cara

Why do girls always go to the bathroom in groups? For the kickass musical collabs, obvi!

JoJo, Alessia Cara, and DNCE's JinJoo Lee all took a collective bathroom break during Tuesday's Kissmass concert at Charlotte, North Carolina's Spectrum Center — AKA the Time Warner Cable Arena — but their pee party actually turned into an AH-mazing jam session!

And we don't really blame them. The acoustics are always best in the bathroom!

Video: Wath JoJo & Remy Ma's Video For FAB.

The fierce females teamed up to take on JoJo and Alessia's cool collab I Can Only., featuring JinJoo slaying on the six string.

The guitarist took a seat right on the bathroom floor and Alessia popped a squat on the toilet while the Mad Love artist belted her brains out!

PLUS the echo in the stall made the brunette beauty's powerful pipes even more perfect than they already are, somehow!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

no title

The court docs show the North Carolina teen had been chatting on the Canadian app Kik before the murder — under the handle EtherealSkull — telling a fellow user that he planned to kill his grandfather, even sharing photos of the gloves he wore and the hatchet he was going to use to commit the crime.

Raistlin also reportedly explained on the app that he'd get a lighter sentence because he's a minor.

When one user asked why he wanted to kill the 63-year-old, the teenager supposedly replied:

no title

Home is where the heart was

Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's last renovation — but that doesn't mean the reality show has completely moved on to the pop culture graveyard.

In fact, the Ty Pennington-hosted home improvement program has been making headlines all week… for just about the most destructive reason ever!

That's because we're hearing the Friday Family from the penultimate episode of the ABC series actually kicked out five of their seven adopted children AFTER the makeover was complete!

According to local reports out of North Carolina, Devonda and James Friday of Charlotte had just adopted five young brothers and sisters at the time of taping to keep the siblings from being separated into the foster system back in 2012.

However, we're now hearing that all of the children — including eldest kids Chris and Kamaya, whom have since dropped the Friday surname — were sent to different group homes within a year of their episode's airing!

Luckily, the brother/sister pair has now come forward to share their heartbreaking story, with Chris telling WSOC-TV:

It's official. It hasn't even been 12 hours and people are already clearly anxious that our country is going to sh*t.

And the bad dream just dodged an even worse turn.

The NC resident posted the terrifying photo (above) that seemed to show members of the white supremacy group — who publicly backed the controversial candidate during his campaign — walking across a bridge in white robes and hoods, captioning the scary shot:
