Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea are friends, and not in a have-lunch-on-occasion-to-catch-up type of way. They performed at the VMAs together before going home for a pizza and pajamas party. Lovato was there when Azalea got engaged. Azalea asked Lovato to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. They understand each other in a way that only famous people can. But how did they first meet? Lovato reveals in her cover article for Complex magazine that their whirlwind friendship began, of course, at Jennifer Lopez's Halloween party:
We met at Jennifer Lopez’s Halloween party. I was dressed as Lucille Ball and Wilmer was Desi Arnaz. I’m kind of a little socially awkward when it comes to parties and going out because I feel like, unless you’re going to get fucked up, everybody’s awkward. Since I don’t do that anymore, and Iggy wasn’t drinking—she doesn’t do anything—I was kind of like, “Hey. I’m a big fan. I love your music.” We start talking, and it turns out that we’re neighbors and we didn’t even know.
Then I saw her at all the Jingle Ball shows. Then we got to actually hang, and we just became close. She’s so awesome. She’s very, very, very real. What you see is what you get. I think sometimes that pushes people away, but that’s what I admire about her. She’s the furthest thing from fake. In this entertainment business, that’s so hard to find with anybody. That’s why I don’t have any very famous friends. The very few that I do have are real.
What's craziest about this story is that the moment was captured on Instagram! Remember this?
In case it's not clear, Iggy is dressed as a White Chick (the Wayans kind, no the basic variety). It's like we were all there, really just feeling like we all get each other because we know what it's like to be a celebrity.
