“Poot Lovato” is arguably the best Lovato, and she’s back in full force.
On Monday night, Demi Lovato sent out a truly iconic GIF of Poot on loop ― no caption necessary:
If you’re unaware of who Poot is, she’s a meme that originally began on Tumblr via user Cstcrpt, who has since deleted their account.
Cstcrpt uploaded a photo of Demi Lovato leaving the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium Theatre on November 13, 2014 in London, England. The photo was ... not taken from the best of angles.
“Demi’s twin sister. She was locked in a basement her whole life. This picture was taken the first time she went outside. Her name is Poot,” the caption reads.
The photo took off and became an internet phenomenon in 2015, which Lovato was not a fan of. There were hashtags (#FreePootLovato, etc.) and Twitter accounts galore. But the hoopla mostly died down since then as Poot remained dormant.
Luckily, the 24-year-old singer seemed to experience a change of heart about dear old Poot and decided to give her “sister” a well-deserved resurgence. Why? We have no idea! We’re not questioning it because we’re too busy celebrating!
Twitter is, too:
Long live Poot.
