Demi Lovato is seriously happy.
In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, Lovato talked about her new relationship. DeGeneres asked Lovato if she ever gets worried about Vasconcelos when he's in the ring. "That seems so ridiculously dangerous," DeGeneres said of MMA fighting.
Lovato said that "of course" she gets nervous, but Vasconcelos usually wins against his opponents. "But then you feel bad for the person he's hurting!" DeGeneres said. "I don't feel bad...it's a sport!" Lovato responded.
The "Confident" singer also revealed to DeGeneres that she's been doing some MMA training of her own. Lovato explained that she's been training for almost a year and has learned kickboxing, Muay Thai, and jiu jitsu. She recently shared a video on her own Instagram account showing her and Vasconcelos "fighting" at a gym. Lovato captioned the photo, "When you kick bae's ass."
We're thrilled to see Lovato so happy, and that she's speaking out about her experience with bipolar. Mental illness shouldn't come with a stigma, and brave figures like Lovato are proving that fact.
