Pop star Demi Lovato is no stranger to combat sports.
As a major fan, Lovato also spends her free time training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Jay Glazer’s Unbreakable Gym in Los Angeles, Calif. Lovato has been training for around a year, and this week she reached a milestone.
On Monday, Lovato took to social media to announce she received her blue belt after putting in all of the hard work.
I'm so beyond excited because I just received my blue belt in #brazilianjiujitsu!!!! I fell in love with #BJJ over a year ago and have been training several times a week ever since.. thank you so much to @chilcote.dunn @captainHarlan_ @tarsisbjj for giving me my belt along with one of the most important and special women in my life today @officialdaniellemartin/@trueboundaries – I love you so much and couldn't be more grateful for you 💙💙💙💙 also special shoutout to @jayglazer for flying in to give me my belt as well!!! Love you jay!!!
It has been quite the eventful few days for Lovato, too.
After singing the national anthem prior to Saturday’s blockbuster fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, she remained in Las Vegas to perform her hit song “Sorry Not Sorry” at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Now, she gets to celebrate her accomplishments that come from dedication to her other passion.
