If you’ve been anywhere near an internet-enabled device in the past 24 hours then we probably don’t need to tell mid-term elections are being held in America today.
A more smug site might tell you that if you haven’t voted already, you should stop reading this article and go do so, but we know this is 2018, and you’re not sitting in front of a massive fat-backed monitor with a blinking green cursor, so feel free to take this article with you to the polls and read it on your phone in line!
After all, there are lots of reasons to perform your civic duty, not the least of which is that all the cool kids are doing it, including a freshly-rehabbed Demi Lovato!
Yes, Demi posted on Instagram for the first time since July today.
The singer broke her silence in order to encourage her fans to get out and vote!
As you’re probably aware, Demi suffered a near-fatal overdose over the summer, and she spent the three months that followed hospitals and rehab facilities.
As far as we know, Lovato left rehab late last week.
Over the weekend, she was spotted out and about with new boyfriend Henry Levy, marking the first time that the singer has been seen in public since she nearly lost her life in July.
There has been concern about Demi and Henry’s relationship, as Levy is a newly-rehabbed former addict himself.
Sources close to Demi say there’s nothing to worry about, as Henry has been sober for the better part of a year, but like Demi, he’s also been in and out of rehab numerous times.
“He used to have a drug problem,” one insider recently told Radar Online.
“He used to like to party.”
The source adds that these days, Levy is “sober and straight-edge.”
It’s great that he’s taking the necessary steps to regain his health, but there are many good reasons that addiction specialists caution their patients against forming close relationships early in the recovery process, particularly with fellow addicts.
But hey, today we’re choosing to focus on the bright side.
Demi is reclaiming her life, and all over the country, Americans are reclaiming their democracy!
