Demi Lovato ‘Slides’ into Emily Hampshire’s DM’s
Doesn’t everyone wish that a superstar would just slide into our DMs? It seems like a fantasy, especially when that superstar is Demi Lovato.
Well this is a little story of when dreams become reality, because Emily Hampshire was living the dream.
In an interview on Lovato's podcast “4D With Demi Lovato,” Hampshire starts by giving details on how the two met each other.
“You slid in my DMs and you said, ‘Hey, I like you on the show. We should kick it sometime’… 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 I was like, ‘Sometimes that’s confusing’ … I’m decades older than you, so ‘kick it,’ I was looking it up,” Hampshire said in the interview.
While there didn't end up being a romance between the two according to PRIDE, they ended up becoming close friends.

Drake has made headlines with his new album, “Certified Lover Boy.” However there is some controversy over one of the tracks in the album, “Girls Want Girls.”
Drake stirs up some fans, especially LGBT fans, thoughts on his new track “Girls Want Girls,” which features Lil Baby.
The lyrics are as prominent as the sun right off the bat, the track starts off by saying, “Starin' at your dress 'cause it's see-through/Talkin' all the sh*t that you done been through/Say that you a lesbian, girl, me too/Girls want girls where I'm from.”
These lyrics have caused fans to be puzzled as well as make a multitude of memes from the track.
PRIDE has listed only some of the memes that fans have made, but that is only the tip of the iceberg.
On a more serious note fans have speculated that Drake is trying to sexualize members of the LGBT community.
PRIDE says, “The lyric has left many listeners confused. While some folks think it's commenting on women leaving their boyfriends for women or just plain silly wordplay, others believe the track's sexualization of queer women from a male point-of-view is problematic.”
However Drake continues to shock the world with his music and album covers.

Bitch on Arrival (BOA) is no secret on “Canada's Drag Race,” she would always make her presence known. However, the Drag Race star took time to find her confidence and self-love.
BOA sat down with PRIDE to give people an inside scoop on her journey of finding self-love and body confidence.
“I'm going to say two words: self-love. If you're able to love yourself whether you’re super skinny, or big, or your hair is long or short or whatever — as long as you love yourself and you're OK with what you see in the mirror,” BOA said in her interview.
She talked about growing up as a bigger child and the effects that it had while growing up.
“I was a pretty big kid. Getting into high school, I started dieting a lot and working out excessively and I started losing weight, people started paying attention to me. And I really, I really liked that feeling. So I kind of pushed it pretty hard. And it actually became an eating disorder,” she said.
Finding self-love can be a difficult journey, but there comes a time where everyone can and should love themselves.
