Demi Lovato loves the holidays, but it seems like she has a special place in her heart for the unofficial 4/20 holiday!
The “Dancing With The Devil” star shared a fabulous photo of herself smoking an elaborate pipe to celebrate 4/20 on Tuesday. Lovato joined thousands of weed-friendly influencers and shared pictures of their picturesque smoking spots. Casual fans were shocked that the former Disney star would share something like that with her 102 million followers, given that she almost died during an overdose in 2018. However, the star revealed that she is not fully sober and called herself “California sober” in her new documentary.
Demi comfortably sat crosslegged in a hammock (hammocks are perfect for 4/20) with a big grin as she sparked one up. She hilariously included IG stickers of a green Micky Mouse and one that read, “Happy 420.”
The “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer defined her sobriety as “California sober,” which basically means she drinks alcohol and smokes weed but avoids every other substance. “I’ve learned that it doesn’t work for me to say that I’m never going to do this again. I know I’m done with the stuff that’s going to kill me, right?” she said in the docuseries, “Dancing With The Devil.” “Telling myself that I can never have a drink or smoke marijuana, I feel like that’s setting myself up for failure because I am such a black-and-white thinker. I had it drilled into my head for so many years that one drink was equivalent to a crack pipe.”
It’s important to note that many health and addiction professionals do not like the “California sober” definition or the attitude. Ken Seeley, a registered addiction specialist, told ET that the term is “disrespectful to the sober community.”
While Lovato isn’t the only one partaking in April 20th’s festivities, she is probably the only one using that crazy custom pipe. The intricate design resembled some sort of soup cup or shrimp cocktail. It sort of looks like a fancy cappuccino, but we have never seen coffee with two shrimp and an egg in it. Forgive us if we misidentified the artsy pipe, it may be super recognizable, but we just can’t recall what it is… it is 4/20, after all!
The star is no lazy stoner! In fact, she’s quite the opposite. After her pipe pic, she shared a jiujitsu selfie in her dark gi and two-striped blue belt. “Best way to start the day,” she wrote before giving a special shoutout to her jiujitsu professor Chris Light. “Thanks for the best training sesh in wayyyy too long @1chrislight – we back tho!!”
You would be surprised how many jiujitsu practitioners take a toke before delivering a choke on the mat!
