Demi Lovato & Mike Johnson Are Still Flirting & ‘Bachelor’ Fans Are Swooning

Demi Lovato made it clear she was a true member of Bachelor Nation when she expressed pointed interest in Mike Johnson on this season of The Bachelorette. In fact, Lovato is such a superfan that she attended the live recording of the season’s finale. The “Confident” singer has pictures with both Hannah Brown (who she has a budding friendship with) and her namesake, Demi Burnett. However, Bachelor fans are still holding out hope that Lovato and Johnson form a romantic relationship.

Demi Lovato reveals she’s crushing on Mike Johnson

Lovato has never made it a secret that she is crushing on Johnson. “Mike I accept your rose. He always picks her up and swings her when he hugs her. Swing me,” Lovato posted on her Instagram stories while she was doing a recap of one of the episodes of The Bachelorette. When Johnson was unexpectedly sent home during the same episode, he penned a message on Twitter stating that he was still in search of his future wife.

Lovato responds to Johnson’s tweet

“Jus saying, my future wife though girl you ready for smiles, adventure, comfort, growth, honesty, laughter, me falling using my inhaler and kissing your stretch marks and imperfections. Where u hiding?” Johnson wrote. Lovato was quick to respond very enthusiastically. “I’M RIGHT HERE MIKE I’M RIGHT HERE BOO MY MOM ALREADY LOVES YOU TOO,” Lovato wrote back in response.

Johnson is flirting too

Johnson certainly seemed open to Lovato’s advances. When people asked the veteran how he felt about Lovato’s flirty messages he had a pitch-perfect response. “I’m flirting with her too. Tell her, ‘What’s up, baby?’ I would definitely take her out for an initial date, yeah. 100 percent not scared about it at all. I would be like, ‘Oh my God! Girl, come here,'” Johnson said in an interview Us Weekly.

Though they both appear receptive to dating one another, things had been pretty quiet on the homefront between Johnson and Lovato. But, now they seem to be swapping flirty exchanges directly. Johnson was quick to show his support of Lovato when she recently posted an unedited picture of herself in a bikini. Promoting body positivity, she posted in honor of national cellulite day. Taking to her Instagram page, Lovato posted a truly empowering message.

Demi Lovato posts an unedited bikini picture

“This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day,” the “Cool For The Summer” singer began.

Lovato talks body positivity

“It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio… I’m working on an anthem… also. Just so everyone’s clear… I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too,” The Will & Grace actress concluded.

Johnson shows his support

Lovato’s powerful message was immediately flooded with support, and Johnson was one of the millions to show Lovato some love. “Look at me like that again”. Johnson posted with the very insinuating smirking emoji. “Love yaself,” the Bachelor In Paradise star wrote. Thus far, Johnson holds the top comment on the post. His flirty comment has already garnered over 25,000 likes and nearly 900 comments. Lovato herself left a comment consisting of a kissing emoji alongside another playful and flirty emoji.

Bachelor Nation approves

Bachelor fans were absolutely thrilled by the interaction and began urging the pair to date. “Ok, can y’all just go on a date already,” one fan commented. “I am here for this! I STAN!,” another fan stated enthusiastically. Only time will tell if these two flirts actually go out on a date. After all, the next bachelor has yet to be announced. (Spoiler alert: it’s this guy.) However, if they decided to do so, at least they have the support of Bachelor Nation.
