What do tour-mates Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato do when they are not acting jealous and cool for the summer, respectively? Allow Billboard’s profile of the pair to paint this fantastic image: “These days the two enjoy cigars and espresso shots, nerd out over conspiracy theories, watch dumb comedies … and call each other with any personal crisis.” Wow, sounds like they’ve really put their Disney pasts behind — wait, what was that bit about conspiracies? Only a reminder that, like Ariana Grande before her, Demi Lovato believes in some weird shit. As the “Confident” singer explained to Seth Meyers back in 2014, aliens are currently living in the Earth’s oceans as mermaids, a belief she picked up after watching the “extremely convincing” Animal Planet special Mermaids: The New Evidence. Lovato failed to convince Meyers, but judging from the verb “nerd out,” it’s possible that she’s swayed Jonas, which means that there would now be two people in the world who believe that aliens are mermaids. Billboard also says the pair “don’t really read: ‘No books,’ says Jonas.” You don’t say.
