Demi Lovato takes ‘mugshot’ to mock recent interview’s misunderstood joke answer

The singer has insisted she was joking after saying in a recent interview that her favourite dish was 'mugs'

Demi Lovato has posted a ‘mugshot’ to Instagram after a ‘joke’ she made in an interview – that her favourite dish was “mugs” – was taken seriously.

In the interview she responded to the question, “What’s your favourite dish?” by saying, “My favourite dish… I like mugs because they’re very comfortable in your hand, and they hold hot things that you don’t have to touch… so, you know, coffee, hot tea.”

In the video footage she appears to look away after giving the answer, before smiling into the camera.

She insisted after the interview that she was joking, tweeting, “For anybody who actually thinks I misunderstood the “favorite dish” question – you clearly don’t get my sense of humor”.

Then, she followed it with another tweet, which read, “I was homeschooled but I’m not that stupid.”

Today, playing on the misunderstanding, she posted a selfie to Instagram in which she was covered in mugs.
