It appears that Demi Lovato "really didn't care" about the cameras outside the entrance to the 1st Annual Trailblazers event in New York City. She flashed her middle finger and made an exaggerated grin as she walked into the event, which was held on June 23.

Even more surprising than Demi's smiling expression is the fact that she was walking up the steps of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine as she made the profane gesture. (You can see photos below.)

Demi addressed the situation on Twitter, calling out the paparazzi for being disrespectful to her.
