Demi Lovato Tries To Convince Seth Meyers That Mermaids Are Real

Demi Lovato dropped by "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on June 4, for what would prove to be one of the most amusing interviews for both the host and the audience.

The 21-year-old pop star tried in vain to convince Meyers that aliens exist, telling the host, "I know that they are real. How self-centered would we be, as humans, to believe that we are the only living things in the universe?”

Meyers wasn't buying her argument and responded, "Well, call me self-centered, because I don't believe in aliens."

Lovato also confessed she's a huge fan of conspiracy theories, and that she also believes that mermaids are real. The "Heart Attack" singer explained that she believes there could possibly be mermaids, which are actually "an alien species living in parts of the Indian Ocean, which we have never explored before as human beings -- and Christopher Columbus had actually seen three mermaids on his way to America."

Meyers remained skeptical, but seemed thoroughly entertained as he was sent into a fit of laughter when Lovato told him quite definitively that mermaids look nothing like the way they are depicted in books. "No. I mean they are aliens," she told him, as self-conscious smile broke out across her face. "There are pictures online."
