Demi Lovato is living in the moment this year—that's why she isn't doing the "10-year challenge" currently going viral on all your social media feeds.
Don't know what the 10-year challenge is? Lucky you! It's basically a side-by-side photo game whereby people are sharing one image of themselves from 2009 and another from 2019. The goal, seemingly, is to show how hot you've become over the last decade. The power of the "glow-up," and all that jazz.
Except Lovato isn't buying into it. "Sorry, I'd love to post a #10YearChallenge pic, but I'm too busy living in the moment," the singer posted alongside the emoji of a girl holding her hand out. It's the definition of "Sorry Not Sorry," which you should stream right now as you're reading this.
Check out her post for yourself, below:
Her fans, naturally, are living for this. "Thank you, you really always have the right words," one of them tweeted. "Yaass Queen," posted another.
This isn't shade to people who've completed the 10-year challenge, of course. Some are doing it for more personal reasons, and I like to employ a "you do you" mentality when it comes to social media. But Lovato's message is a good reminder that loving who you are right now is the most important thing.
It's been a trying few months for Demi, who suffered from a reported overdose over the summer and quickly entered recovery. "I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction," she posted in August about the incident. "What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet." She made her return to Instagram on Election Day in November 2018 and has posted a steady stream of updates since then.
