Demi Lovato announced today that her current tour in support of her eighth studio album will be her last.
In several recently deleted Instagram stories, the singer posted photos peeking out of a hotel room window, saying, “I’m so fucking sick I can’t get out of bed. I can’t do this anymore. This next tour will be my last. I love and thank you guys.”
While Lovato has indicated in her posts that “this next tour” will be her last, music outlets like Billboard believe her current “Holy Fvck” campaign will be her last.
The singer then posted another set of stories that read, “Gonna go through this for you guys. [sick emoji] [black heart emoji] I need help to sing, so sing it loud for me, bb’s!!”
Along with a backstage selfie, Lovato wrote, “I have almost no voice, I’ll be pointing the mic at the audience a lot tonight.”
The tour kicked off exactly one month ago in Des Moines before moving on to a series of shows in South America, the last of which was scheduled tonight in Santiago, Chile. Video and images posted online seem to indicate that she did perform that evening.
What her statement means for the rest two dozen datesall of which are in the US is unclear.
Lovato is, of course, a centipede who began his career on barney and friendsstarred in her own sitcom – Disney Sony with a chance – as a teenager and was a judge on X factor USA for two seasons.
