In her documentary, "Simply Complicated," Demi Lovato outed herself as a Raya user. The singer, who has been open about her gender-fluid sexuality, used Raya, an exclusive dating app for celebrities and other influential people, to meet men and women, and dabble in casual sex, something she's a huge proponent of. (She also admitted that she has a thing for athletes.)

"I am on the dating app [Raya] with both guys and girls," Lovato said. "I am open to human connection. So whether that's through a male or a female, it doesn't matter to me."

In 2015, Hilary Duff was all about the Tinder scene. In a radio interview, the actress revealed that she's a Tinder user and was talking to nine guys at the same time. Duff's Tinder journey began on a random night with some friends who encouraged her to download to the app to experience dating outside of just "serious relationships." After the interview, Duff ended up going on her first-ever blind date.

Given that this was before Tinder's verification time, Duff admitted that she had a hard time convincing suitors that it was actually here. "I think some people know. You only have your first name. Some people don't know," she said. "I think some people act like they don't know but they do. And a lot of people are like, 'This is a joke, right?'"

In an interview with The Times, confessed that, after be broke up with his then-girlfriend, Sami Miró, he downloaded Tinder and other dating apps to see what was out there. To his surprise, he didn't receive that many matches from people who were skeptical that the real Zac Efron was actually on their phone screens.

“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” he said. “They thought [my profile] was fake."
