Alien Believer Demi Lovato Becomes a UFO Investigator

You may know Demi Lovato as a child actress on “Barney & Friends” (which she’d probably prefer that you forget). You may know her from her many other television appearances or from her successful recording career. What Demi would like to be remembered for now is as a UFO investigator. Wait … what?

“In “Unidentified with Demi Lovato,” the music superstar and actress, her skeptical best friend Matthew, and her sister Dallas attempt to help uncover the truth about the UFO phenomena. While consulting with leading experts, the trio will investigate recent eyewitness encounters, uncover secret government reports, and conduct tests at known UFO hot spots.”

Variety reveals that the Peacock network will broadcast an unscripted series about UFOs with Lovato as the lead investigator – the tentative tile is “Unidentified With Demi Lovato.” You may not think of her as a George Knapp or a Linda Moulton Howe or even a Tom DeLonge kind of ufologist, but Lovato actually believes extraterrestrials are real and has personal encounters with them and UFOs, so she may be a more serious investigator than one would expect.

Is she ready for anything?

“I was walking outside and I looked up and it almost was like there was a worm in the sky. It was changing shapes and moving all over the place.”

In 2016, Lovato told Elle Canada about this experience with a worm UFO that occurred a few years before. In a June 2014 appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” she admitted that she knows aliens are real. In that same interview, she also professed a belief in mermaids because “Christopher Columbus has actually seen three mermaids on his way to America.” Roll your eyes back into your head and consider that in 2020 she spent a few days in Joshua Tree National Park with ufologist Steven Greer and “witnessed the most incredibly profound sightings both in the sky as well as feet away from me.” As proof, she posted videos and photos on Instagram. (See them here.)

Is that enough to qualify Demi Lovato as a UFO investigator worthy of a TV show?

“Demi is a true believer, and during this courageous adventure, she hopes to convince her friends, family and her millions of followers that not only are there intelligent beings beyond Earth but that they are already here!”

Is she ready if they're not friendly?

It looks like the Peacock network believes and it hopes you will too. As of this writing, there is no set release date for “Unidentified with Demi Lovato.”

If Demi Lovato is the one who proves that UFOs and aliens exist, will you believe her?

Barney can’t wait.
