Demi Lovato Tops the List for Google’s Most Searched in 2018
As the year comes to an end, we reflect on 2018 and everything that went into making this year. What better way to do that than to look at the things we Googled. This week, the tech giant released its lists of all the things we followed in 2018. Between movies, weddings, celebrities, and politics, it’s been a busy year. Still, musician Demi Lovato edged out every other big name to become the most searched for person in 2018.
Beating Megan Markel and Brett Kavanaugh for the number one spot, Lovato also topped another category. The pop star is this year’s the most searched for musician as well. Lovato was able to beat out other artists like Cardi B and Ariana Grande who also had a huge 2018.
There’s no doubt Lovato had had an eventful year.
Filled with both professional accomplishments and personal trials, it makes sense that the pop star is a constant in our search history. Here are some of the incredible events that made Demi the number-one searched person this year.
March 2018- Demi’s DC performance
Lovato is a vocal supporter for laws regulating firearms so it’s no surprise she lent her voice to the March for Our Lives rally. The pop star performed her single “Skyscraper” during the first annual gathering in Washington, DC. Started by victims of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the event protested lax gun regulations. Besides performing, Lovato also marched alongside the students, activists and other stars.
May 2018- Demi’s big collabs
In May, Lovato fulfilled one of her dreams by collaborating with fellow Latina Christina Aguilera. For Aguilera’s first album in six years, the pair wrote and recorded “Fall In Line.” Fans of both artists declared it the feminist anthem that 2018 needed.
Lovato also teamed up with Clean Bandit for their single “Solo.” The song earned the Latina her first number one song on UK music charts.
June 2018- Lovato releases “Sober”
Lovato has always been very transparent with fans about her struggles with mental health and addiction. So, when the star relapsed after six years of sobriety, she didn’t shy away from talking about it. Lovato released “Sober,” a song in which she detailed her experiences with addiction and sobriety.
Her heartbreaking lyrics included a shout out to her fans:
“And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.”
July 2018- Demi overdoses
Just weeks after she released “Sober,” Lovato was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical in LA. News media reported that the musician had suffered a heroin overdose and Twitter flipped at the news. The hashtag #ImConfidentInDemi began trending with both fans and fellow stars tweeting their support.
It was later revealed that Lovato had actually overdosed on oxycodone laced with fentanyl. Though she was revived later the same day, Lovato would spend two weeks in hospital healing.
August 2018-Lovato’s stay in rehab
After her two week stay at Cedar-Sinai, Lovato checked herself into rehab. Before flying to a rehabilitation center in Chicago, the Latina sent a message of thanks to her fans. Lovato would spend a total of three months getting the treatment she needed before being released.
November 2018- Lovato gets out to vote
After being out of the public eye for so long, Lovato fans were anxious to see their girl back in action. After no social media presence for three months, Lovato took to the polls for an Insta-worthy moment in her first Instagram post since rehab.
Always politically active, Lovato expressed thanks for being home in time to vote. She also encouraged her fans to go out and exercise their right to vote.
December 2018- Never giving up and Demi’s big Grammy nomination
Since her overdose, Lovato has been spending less time on social media and more time one her self. The singer took up Jiu Jitsu as a way to center her mind and care for her body. In her second Insta post since July, Lovato posted a picture of herself in her Jiu Jitsu gear with the hashtag #NeverGiveUp. This was a very welcome message to all the millions of Lovato fans wishing for her recovery.
Days later on December 7th, the world woke up to news of this year’s Grammy nominations. “Fall in Line,” Lovato and Aguilera’s collaboration, was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. The artist took to Twitter to express her disbelief and appreciation. She also explained how surreal it was to be nominated with Aguilera, one of her childhood idols.
Lovato has had her share of hard knocks this year but she is strong and surrounded with lots of love. Here’s hoping that Lovato’s 2019 is filled with nothing but blessings.
