Demi Lovato, at the People's Choice Awards, kicked off the show with a joke about how she quickly transitioned from dating to being a free woman after a short-term relationship with her ex, Max Erich
“I am so glad to be here tonight because, to be honest, this year has been the longest - as if the longest, not a year, but three years in my life,” Demi Lovato said at the beginning of her opening monologue as host of E! People's Choice Awards Sunday 15 November. Demi, 28, was invited to host the unconventional awards ceremony, and she started by joking about her short engagement to Max Erich… "Do not misunderstand me; it all started out amazingly. I performed at the Grammy and sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl. But then COVID-19 hit and everything turned off. “So, I did what everyone else did. I went into self-isolation for the period of quarantine and got engaged."
“I got into drawing, photography, meditation, and experienced the limits of Postmates Unlimited. Also, I didn't know this could happen, but I got to the end of the Instagram feed four times. I drank seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars, then I stopped getting carried away and went looking for aliens in the desert, "she added. "In general, the same as everyone else."
Demi, 29, and Max broke up on September 24, just two months after Max proposed to marry on a beach in Malibu. The couple had only dated for six months at this point, and initial reports said the two "decided to go their separate ways to focus on their careers." Max appears to have disputed reports that it was a break-through by mutual agreement, with a post he posted on his Instagram story a few days after that break. "Imagine learning about the status of your relationship through the tabloid," he wrote, "while you are filming a biopic about a Christian church pastor whose goal is to help people." Max was filming the Southern Gospel in Atlanta at the time.
Max spoke up again a week after Demi released her song after breaking up with the title "Still Have Me". Apparently, the actor was not a fan because he took to Instagram Live to accuse Demi of using their relationship as a "PR stunt." He also accused her of “wasting your millions of dollars to write fake news about me …” Aren't you tired? All I did was love with all my heart. If you want to denigrate me, say whatever you want. It's just crazy. This is the strangest experience that I hope no one has ever had. Nobody deserves that feeling. " Shortly thereafter, Max will release his own post-split song.
