Demi Lovato is a no nonsense kind of gal, and thanks to her longtime friendship with singer and current tourmate Nick Jonas, she knows exactly what kind of woman would best suit him. It makes sense, then, that she wouldn’t hold her tongue when it comes to giving him advice about dating, romance and relationships.

In a new Billboard interview, Lovato and Jonas discussed their friendship and all the advice Lovato has been able to offer him about his love life. “I’m in a bizarre time in my life where I’m single, but that has been tricky,” Jonas explained. “And she likes drama, so I’m able to talk about my dating s— without feeling bad.”
What sparkling words of wisdom does Lovato offer? “He’s a guy in his 20s and he’s famous and he likes to have a lot of fun,” she said. “Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, ‘Get out of that. You could f– anybody that you want right now, so have fun and do that.’”
Lovato apparently didn’t fully approve of Jonas’ now ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo. “I go ‘Honestly, I didn’t like her anyway.’ It’s not because she’s mean or anything, but he has such a great sense of humor and I want him to be with someone that makes him laugh. I can tell if something’s up because he’ll close off.”
For her part, Lovato appears to feel similarly. After splitting up with her longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, she admitted that she’s open to having fun, but she’s not exactly focused on love. There’s one thing she knows she doesn’t want though. “A relationship … I won’t want that for a long time,” she said.
