Footage of Demi Lovato singing to a “ghost” after it apparently told them it had faced sexism during its lifetime has resurfaced online. The clip, which was part of the singer’s docuseries Unidentified with Demi Lovato, showed Lovato joined by friend Matthew Scott and paranormal investigator Chris Smith as they visited Vulture City, a supposed ghost town in Arizona. What happened from there has to be seen to be believed.

  1. Lovato and her compatriots encountered the spirit soon after arriving. The spirit allegedly had “past trauma with men,” which makes sense given that the group encountered the spirit, known as Carmen, at an abandoned brothel.
  2. Lovato was incredibly curious about Carmen. They asked Carmen whether they’re a “Star person,” also known as someone from another dimension or planet, but the EMF detector went silent. However, they decided to try again once Scott and Smith left the room, asking Carmen again if they had anything to share once the men were gone.
  3. Carmen had trauma from men. When the EMF detector started making noise again, Lovato realized exactly what was happening. “Did you not want to say anything else because the boys were in here?” Lovato asked before the device sounds. “I think – Oh, I get that a lot. She has trauma. That’s why she doesn’t like men. I have trauma too, so I feel you and I get it.”
  4. Lovato treated Carmen to a song. Lovato told Carmen that they always sing ‘Skyscraper’ when they want to evoke emotion, so that’s the song they launched into in the clip. When they finish, the machine sounds again, which Smith and Scott claim was like a “standing ovation.” Lovato says: “That’s the coolest standing ovation I’ve ever had.”
