Demi Lovato to quit touring: 'I can't do this anymore'

Demi Lovato is calling it quits to spend more time with her aliens. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer, who decided last year she's ready to date an alien after hosting a UFO hunting series, has announced her current "Holy Fvck" tour will be her last. "I'm so f--king sick I can't get out of bed," she wrote on her Instagram Stories alongside photos apparently from a hotel room. "I can't do this anymore." She added, "This next tour will be my last. I love and thank you guys." Lovato has been touring since August after releasing her eighth studio album, and the tour continues through November with shows scheduled around the U.S. and Canada. It wasn't clear how definitive Lovato was being or if this is sort of like when we claim we're "quitting Twitter." But she says she'll at least "power thru" the rest of the "Holy Fvck" tour, so she isn't ready to be beamed up quite yet.

Saoirse Ronan tragically couldn't be in 'Barbie'

It's the end of the Barbie world for Saoirse Ronan. The Little Women star has revealed she isn't actually in Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie, as previously rumored. "I was supposed to do a cameo because I live in London and they were [filming] there," Ronan told People. But she wasn't able to make it work because of scheduling conflicts with her movie The Outrun. "There was a whole character I was going to play — another Barbie," Ronan said. "I was gutted I couldn't do it." This confirms rumors the film will feature multiple Barbies, and apparently multiple Kens, in addition to Margot Robbie's lead. But with Barbie not set for release until next summer, Ronan still hopes she might end up in it, telling People, "I have texted Margot and Greta and I'm like, 'If you're doing any pick-up [shots], maybe I can just walk through the background." Spoken like someone who knows real Cinema a mile away.

Andrew Garfield saved Jimmy Kimmel's life

Was The Amazing Spider-Man a documentary? Jimmy Kimmel's story about being saved by Andrew Garfield at the Emmys strongly suggests as much. The late-night host revealed that during an extremely cringeworthy Game of Thrones themed dance sequence that opened Monday's Emmys, the tip of a spear that one of the dancers was holding flew into the audience, nearly hitting Kimmel. Luckily for him, he was seated next to Spider-Man himself. "Andrew Garfield lunges forward and snatches it out of the air, like Spider-Man," Kimmel recalled. "Like, he might be really Spider-Man." Good on Garfield for making use of his great power, though from a certain point of view, that drama with Kimmel lying on the stage during Quinta Brunson's speech is kind of his fault, right? We'd also recommend Kimmel be particularly careful driving this week after cheating death. We've seen Final Destination 2

Nicki Minaj sues blogger who called her a 'cokehead'

And this, kids, is why we always make liberal use of the word "allegedly." Nicki Minaj is suing a blogger who declared her to be a "cokehead," according to TMZ. Marley Green, who goes by Nosey Heaux online, claimed this week that the rapper is "shoving all this cocaine" up her nose. "Allegedly," Green said. "But we all know it's true. F--k, listen, I can't even say allegedly with that, because we know it's true. I'm not saying allegedly on that. Nicki Minaj is a cokehead! We all see it!" Well, Minaj wasted no time slapping her with a defamation lawsuit, in which she also singles out Green for (allegedly!) making "vile" comments predicting that her 1-year-old son "is going to be a rapist." Minaj wants a jury to award her at least $75,000 in damages, and she declared on Twitter she'll soon "own your blogs." Wow, does she really like Pepsi this much?

Maya Hawke: 'I would love to die' on 'Stranger Things'

Maya Hawke has a death wish ... when it comes to Stranger Things, at least. The actress chatted with Rolling Stone about the Netflix show's fifth and final season, revealing her hope that her character, Robin, gets killed. "Well, it's the last season, so people are probably going to die," Hawke said. "I would love to die and get my hero's moment. I'd love to die with honor, as any actor would." Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have faced some criticism for not killing off more characters, with star Millie Bobby Brown even dubbing them "sensitive Sallies" for letting too many people live. The Duffers have defended not making the show too "depressing," but for the grand finale, all bets are probably off. If these breaks between seasons keep getting longer, though, the kids may just die of old age.
