I know, “functioning like a happy person” doesn’t sound very..organically happy. But I can assure you Demi Lovato is KILLING IT in the life department!
Nearly five years since she checked herself into rehab and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the singer has been keeping herself pretty busy, and I don’t mean knitting or gardening. The pop singer just announced her joint campaign with five mental-health organizations, called Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health, on Thursday, opened up about her life and happiness, right now:
On the status of her own happiness: “I’m living well with my mental illness – I am actually functioning like a very happy person would,” Lovato tells PEOPLE. “I couldn’t be happier today. Life is really, really great. I have a brand-new puppy and I’m able to not only take care of myself but take care of him as well. I’m living my dream. Life is pretty amazing.”
On having the support of her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama: “He’s been so helpful when it comes to being a part of my support group…And he’s one of those people who’s stuck by my side from day one of me getting help and saying, ‘Listen, I’m not going to be a ‘yes’ person,'” she says. “Someone that just says ‘yes’ to you because they’re afraid of what will happen to them because they don’t want to get out of the circle. ”
On how people can help combat mental illness: “It’s about speaking up for your community, which is taking action, whether it’s writing a letter to Congress and telling them how this is affecting you and your life and how you would like to see mental health care more accessible in your community. There’s so many different ways you can help. I think together as a country we have to step up and we have to do something about this issue that is becoming quite an epidemic.”
Hear, hear Demi! Man, at only 22, and doing so much. Can you imagine what she’ll have accomplished at 44?

It’s a battle of the actresses-with-Months-of-the-year-in-their-names! (Ding ding.)
Stephanie March might’ve been fighting over horses yesterday, but today In Touch Weekly reports that there are divorce docs that say ex Bobby Flay had three affairs during their 10 year marriage, one of which was with Mad Men actress January Jones…
Stephanie is claiming in court papers that Bobby committed adultery with January several times during the early months of 2010. ‘She says they had sex many times and in different places, including the London hotel in Los Angeles.’
In June 2010, TMZ claimed that Bobby showed up to the scene after 37-year-old January crashed her car.
At the time, the 50-year-old said they had watched a basketball game together at the London hotel the previous evening and that the actress has asked for his number because she wanted his advice on redoing her kitchen.
He added to the website that they had only met once before that evening, and he didn’t know why January had called him after her accident.
Last month, a source told the New York Daily News that Stephanie, 40, had questioned Bobby about whether he was romantically involved with January, following his appearance at the car crash scene.
‘I know Stephanie basically asked him after January Jones, “Did you f*** her?”‘ an insider told the site, adding that Bobby denied anything untoward was going on.
In Touch’s source claims: ‘They had a huge fight over January shortly before Stephanie asked him to move out of their place. There is communication between Bobby and January that indicates they were more than acquaintances.’
The magazine goes on to allege that Law And Order: SVU star Stephanie claims in the divorce documents that Bobby also cheated on her with his assistant and a food stylist.
Yeah, if I was Stephanie March I’d march myself right away from this situation (see what I did there?). Bobby Flay seems sooo gross.
Do you think he’s the father of January Jones’ kid?!

So, I guess Ice Cube is anti-Semitic now? At least that’s what some Rabbi is claiming…
P. Taras, who says he’s a rabbi (so he’s not? Did he go to Rabbinical school? Didn’t get more deets) tells TMZ he was at the MGM Detroit on May 24 when he bumped into Cube outside an elevator. TMZ reports:
Taras claims he said something like … hey, watch out — and the rapper/actor responded by having his boys attack. While he was getting stomped, Taras claims he heard several epithets. He thinks that’s because he was wearing a yarmulke.
Taras has filed a lawsuit against Cube for assault and battery, and wants $2 million for his troubles.
Ice Cube’s rep says, “Not only are these accusations a lie, he doesn’t even know who this guy is.”
Woah, this all sounds very fishy. Also, Ice Cube? You just bumped into a dude. CHILL. Keep your boys at bay, will ya? You’re in a public place!
