Demi Lovato Challenges Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness After Oregon Shooting

(0) Comments | Posted October 6, 2015 | 8:09 AM

Demi Lovato is speaking out about the stigma surrounding mental illness, which is well-timed as conversations about the state of mental healthcare are amplified following the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon that left nine people dead

The 23-year-old has been open about her own struggle with bipolar disorder and is the spokesperson for a national initiative called Be Vocal: Speak up for Mental Health

During an appearance on "MSNBC Live With Tamron Hall" on Monday, the singer explained she's tired of the national discussion surrounding mental illness that inevitably flares up in the aftermath of a tragedy such as the school shooting. 

“Well, unfortunately, we’ve had several instances where mental health has been brought to the attention by the media because of these tragedies,” she said. “I think it’s really important to remember that people with mental illness are actually more likely to inflict harm on themselves and become the victim rather than be the perpetrators.”

The singer's comments echo those of "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver who pointed out on Sunday that "the aftermath of a mass shooting might actually be the worst time to talk about mental health."

He added, "The vast majority of mentally ill people are nonviolent and the vast majority of gun violence is committed by non-mentally ill people. In fact, mentally ill people are far likelier to be the victims of violence rather than the perpetrators."

Lovato also spoke of her own battle with mental illness, explaining that she suffered from "bits of mania and also bipolar depression."

"That was the main thing that really got me. And I was lonely, I was sad, I was miserable, and I couldn't figure out why, because I was on top of the world it felt like, but yes, I was struggling with it. And I want to do whatever I can to help others," she said.

Lovato, who previously visited Capitol Hill in September 2014 and urged lawmakers to pass mental health reform, returns to the nation's capital again on Tuesday where she will make a similar plea to Congress as part of the National Council for Behavioral Health's Hill Day.

 In an interview with People magazine on Monday, Lovato explained that she wants to remove the stigma surrounding mental illness by sharing her story

"I think it's important that people no longer look at mental illness as something taboo to talk about. It's something that's extremely common, one in five adults has a mental illness, so basically everyone is essentially connected to this problem and this epidemic," she explained. "The problem with mental illness is people don't look at it as a physical illness. When you think about it, the brain is actually the most complex organ in your body. We need to treat it like a physical illness and take it seriously."

Honey Boo Boo Releases New Song, And You Just Have To Watch The Video To Understand

(2) Comments | Posted October 1, 2015 | 8:39 AM

Nearly a year after TLC canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," young Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, has released a music video for what we hesitate to call a song. 

Since we don't want to mock a 10-year-old, we'll let you know that Thompson and her mother Mama June Shannon teamed up with YouTuber Adam Barta to create "Movin' Up." 

While the tune is being touted as a rap, Thompson seems to have tapped into an entirely different genre, since she's just yelling every word before breaking it down at the chorus asking listeners to "do the Honey Boo Boo Bop."

Calling the video a monstrosity would be unkind, so we'll go with the perfect video for those without discerning taste. Blame Adam Barta for this.
