Fans think Demi Lovato’s new song, ’29,’ is about her and Wilmer Valderrama’s age gap
Demi Lovato’s age gap with Wilmer Valderrama alarmed fans during their dating years. She first met Valderrama when she was 17 years old and he was 29. “I met him on Jan. 11 of 2010, and it was at a PSA shoot at his house for the 2010 census forms,” she said in her documentary, Simply Complicated, according to Fox News. “I met him and I laid eyes on him for the first time, I was in hair and makeup and he came in and sat down and I was like ‘I love this man’ and ‘I have to have him.’ But I was only 17, so he was like, ‘Get away from me.’ After I turned 18, we began dating.”
As for Lovato’s song lyrics, in “29,” she sings, “Petal on the vine/ Too young to drink wine/ Just five years of bleeders/ Student and a teacher/ Far from innocent, what the f*ck’s consent?/Numbers told you not to, but that didn’t stop you.”
“Finally 29/ Funny, just like you were you at the time/ Thought it was a teenage dream, just a fantasy/ But was it yours or was it mine?/ 17, 29,” Lovato continues.
