Demi Lovato just suffered a facial injury, released her brand new single, “Substance,” and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! — all within 24 hours. Since the show must go on, Lovato braved her Kimmel appearance on Thursday (July 14) and took the opportunity to explain to guest host, former NASA engineer Mark Rober, how the injury occurred.
“So I was picking up something off the floor that I had dropped. I am a big fan of crystals. I literally have a huge amethyst about this tall. I went and bent down to pick something up and didn’t see the amethyst and hit my head and had to get three stitches last night,” the 29-year-old explained. year.
She continued: “I called my doctor and was like, ‘Hey, I just punched my face. Do I need stitches?’ So he was like, ‘FaceTime me.’ So we FaceTimed, and I was like, ‘I have Kimmel tomorrow. What do I do?’ So I did what any sane person would do, and created a TikTok before I even told anyone.
Lovato poked fun at their injury via TikTok in a video featuring one of the app’s most popular audios, and had a hand covering part of their forehead and eyes. “No one will know,” said a voice in the TikTok audio. “They’ll find out,” another voice replied, as Lovato took her hand to reveal a slightly bloody scar. “Fk!” she says in the video.
The singer’s conversation on the late-night show then turned to extraterrestrial life. Speaking on behalf of the scientific community, Rober explained that he believes in life beyond our universe, which Lovato said she agrees with.
“I’ve seen stuff,” Lovato told Rober, referring to her alien-centric show, Unidentified with Demi Lovato. “But I’ve also had some really amazing experiences after meditating in the desert, and you just see things pop up and it blows your mind. It kind of shatters your reality for a second and then you’re like, ‘Wow, this universe is so big.’ You feel so small, but also like we have so much meaning at the same time.
