Pop star and former “X Factor” judge Demi Lovato was on “The Tonight Show” Friday (Aug. 15) and she took part in a running bit Fallon has guests do called “Unqualified Advice” — watch above.

When asked how to control kids at sports camp, Demi advocates throwing things at them. We would’ve gone with “pudding and tasers,” but that works too.

Below, in talking about a recent trip to Bora Bora where she swam with sharks, Lovato says, “I can’t be a real junkie anymore, so I’m an adrenaline junkie,” which is a pretty good joke, if you ask us, but some of the audience members did not think so.

She also admits that her favorite TV show is … unusual.

“My favorite show is really embarrassing, and it makes me seem like a weirdo because I’m really into this stuff, but I love crime investigation, so ‘Dateline NBC’ — I’ve seen like every [episode],” says Lovato, then she and Fallon commence geeking out about their love of “Dateline.”

“I can’t watch it before bed because I get nightmares,” says Fallon.
