No Filter: Did Demi Lovato Wash Her Hands Or What?

Welcome back to No Filter, in which we dissect the week in celebrity Instagram. We have a lot to get through this week so let’s hop right to it!

Amandla Stenberg is one of my favorite people to post about in No Filter because they are just casually ruling the world.
Heather wanted you to see this image of Taylor Swift celebrating her ~*~bestie~*~ Cara’s birthday, but this picture gives me middle school lunch table anxiety. Maybe you had a more positive reaction.
Very famous author Gabby Rivera gives us all something to believe in.
Anybody else obsessed with Meredith Graves for making MTV News cool again? Just me? Cool, anyway she’s in this column now and I’m making her a fixture and it’s all happening.

I’m actually really happy for these two because they seem just so sweetly besotted with one another, but c’mon guys, you’re making the rest of us look bad.
Mey’s girlfriend Demi Lovato is just preening around in this public restroom but I’m feeling weirdly anxious about it.

Have finally confirmed that Samira Wiley is just an extra-cute cartoon that this person draws.

Every night as she goes to sleep, Ellen Page wonders, “How can I become more Canadian?” and probably this is the solution.

Every week Jiz Lee is doing some kind of ambitious new exercise while I slump over in my desk chair and lick chocolate pudding off the lid of the container.

Brittani Nichols continued Suicide Kale’s victory lap all around the USA with a trip to Hawaii.

Join us next week, when Brittani Nichols could be slurping chocolate milk at a House of Pies near you.

  1. Well!!! First, I lovvvvvvveeee! Meredith’s AMAZINGLY AWESOME outfit. ? And yes, the umbrella!!!

    And Jiz Lee is a mind alteringly physical and sensually disturbing specimen of female existence!

    • Hi Bae! I can’t pull up their site to be sure right now because I’m at work, but I don’t think Jiz identifies as female – I think they’re nonbinary.

      • You are correct, Jiz Lee is nonbinary.

        They are also my favorite person to follow in Instagram.

      • Oh no! I didn’t realize they identify as non- binary!!

        I apologize to Jiz Lee for my mistake!!!

        And Jiz Lee is a mind alteringly physical and sensually disturbing ( and I mean in an attractive way) specimen of non- binary existence!

  2. i gotta ask, has Mey listened to her girlfriend Demi Lovato’s single “Body Say”? I LOVE it.

  3. Samira Wiley was wearing her Gal Pal shirt on Snapchat last night. Or was it two nights ago? Anyway, it was magical.

  4. This is not related except tangentially re: Mey’s Girlfriend Demi Lovato, but the receptionist at my psychiatrists office reacted to my undercut by telling me it looks very “cool for the summer” & I’ve never felt more seen

  5. Can I just say that the only thing my eyes are drawn to in that lunch-table anxiety photo is Cara’s boots and beaming smile? And wondering if procuring the former will result in my experiencing the latter?
