More Drama Between Demi Lovato and Zendaya

There is drama between Demi Lovato and Zendaya again with the two having issues over Barbie doll sizes (you can’t make this up). Zendaya was honored with a Barbie doll just the other day, but Lovato had an issue with another Barbie doll being produced that she thought didn’t have a more natural body.

Lovato tweeted out her displeasure with this tweet: “Hey @Barbie, what about a curvy doll or one with true to size measurements? I’ll modell!! #raiseyourvoice #besuper”

While the tweet wasn’t aggressive towards Zendaya, her fans are upset that she didn’t congratulate her on her great moment. The tweet has since been deleted, but not after plenty of screen shots and awareness from the media.

Ed Sheeran and Beyonce Perform an Unusual Duet

At the Global Citizen’s Fest that was going on in New York, Beyonce brought Ed Sheeran on stage to perform a duet together. Last year, Sheeran’s version of her song “Drunk In Love” became pretty popular for how different it sounded. Well, they performed it together and they rocked it out for those in attendance.

Both performed on their own during the concert, but they also brought others on stage to help them perform. Beyonce also brought out Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam to cover a Bob Marley song while Sheeran had Chris Martin from Coldplay help him sing “Thinking Out Loud.”
