This evening I am presiding over a *tender* Dirt Bag, with a healthy dash of skepticism after this first, very distressing item.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that pop star Demi Lovato had been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering an apparent overdose. TMZ reported on the basis of a law enforcement source that Lovato had overdosed on heroin. Shortly after, People reported that, according to their own source, Lovato’s condition was stable and the overdose was not heroin related.
So the story is certainly developing and much remains to be confirmed (or not), but in the meantime well-wishers have been voicing their support for Lovato on Twitter. Here’s a taste of what they’ve been reaching out to say:
Deadline reported on Tuesday evening that Fox announced it will be pulling tonight’s episode of Beat Shazam, which featured an appearance by Lovato. Fox said in its statement, “Tonight’s previously scheduled episode of Beat Shazam featured a guest appearance by Demi Lovato. In light of recent reports, we have decided to replace the episode of Beat Shazam with another all-new episode. Our thoughts go out to Demi and her family.”
Happy 49th Birthday, J. Lo!
