Meanwhile, Demi Lovato’s four-part docuseries about whether or not UFOs exist is perfect for skeptics and believers alike.
The show follows the popular singer, their skeptical BFF Matthew and their sister Dallas as they search for the truth about the UFO phenomenon.
During each episode, Demi and their loved ones gain insight into the reality behind extraterrestrials as they pick the brains of elite scientists and eyewitnesses who’ve experienced an encounter with UFOs.
Demi believes that UFOs do exist after having a hair-raising moment with something they believe was extraterrestrial.
‘I had this crazy experience that happened in Joshua Tree – it was this right light that kind of moved in these weird ways, that a plane wouldn’t move,’ Demi says in the trailer. ‘My goal is to find out what really happened.’
