I think it’s safe to say this prank didn’t turn out exactly the way Demi Lovato hoped it would.
Lovato went undercover as a Lyft driver in Denver during a stop on her Future Now tour, but almost no one recognized her. To add insult to injury, one rider who did eventually recognize her actually majorly dissed her.
Lovato tried to hide her identity during the stunt by wearing a hat and sunglasses, and apparently it worked, because even though she was dropping hints to her riders about who she was, it was going right over their heads.
“It’s a job, like, cool for the summer,” she said to one woman, referring to her 2015 hit song.
When another passenger got in the car, she subtly dropped hints about her touring partner, Nick Jonas.
“I actually really want to be a singer someday. I’ve actually been traveling the country with my ex-boyfriend’s brother because he sings too. We really want to get our names out there. Open mic nights and anything we can do,” she said, referencing her fling with Joe Jonas back in 2010.
Still, the riders didn’t figure out who she was.
For the next rider, she said, “What type of music do you listen to? I really love Nick Jonas.”
The rider even replied, “I think he’s here tomorrow night with Demi,” without realizing that Lovato was the one driving the car.
To make the situation even funnier, one rider who did actually recognize Lovato only realized who she was after saying that Selena Gomez is a better singer.
“I just insulted the hell out of you!” the woman said afterward. “I’m so sorry!”
