Watch the singer discuss her recovery from addiction
Singer, actress and The X Factor “mentor” Demi Lovato made her publishing debut last week with her memoir Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year. Published by Feiwel and Friends, the book is scrapbook of sorts, comprised of uplifting Tweets Lovato wrote over the past twelve months as she was recovering from addiction, depression and other issues. A combination of her words and others, Staying Stong ranges in content from Lovato’s emotional goals to quotes about perseverance.
In a new webisode, the singer opens up about her struggles. Sitting backstage, Lovato reads a Franklin D. Roosevelt quote to a roomful of friends, which also appears in Staying Strong. The quote – “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on” – resonates with two of her guests, who are Maasai Warriors from Kenya and the first to go to school in their community. “It’s all about courageousness and believing in yourself. That’s how you can be strong,” Wilson says. Lovato met the pair on a recent trip to Kenya as part of her involvement with the charity Free the Children, which she cites as a major inspiration for the book.
Speaking on Staying Strong, Lovato tells Rolling Stone, “It can bring together people from all over the world – different cultures from different backgrounds. Everyone can relate in some shape or form because we’re all human beings with heart and soul.”

VIDEO: Demi Lovato Teases “Neon Lights” Video, Due September 29
Demi Lovato has selected “Neon Lights” as the third single from her recent album Demi, and the video is coming as soon as Sunday night — as the songbird revealed with a little teaser video on her Facebook page. Showing neon letters (I see what you did there, Demetria) spelling out the name of the song.
It’s a simple visual, but promising — especially if we get some shots of Demi in club attire. Expect the video to premiere at 6pm ET on Sunday, September 29.
Given the song’s heavy EDM influence, it’s the most obviously radio-friendly out of the remaining tracks on Demi, but it was also one of the worst-received critically upon the album’s release, which makes it a curious single choice. Ah well. A new Demi video is better than no Demi video at all, right?
Demi Lovato wants to inspire you with her motivational words of wisdom.
That’s why she’s releasing a new book called Staying Strong, which will be filled with her favorite inspirational quotes and morning meditations.
The 21-year-old singer took to her Keek account for the big reveal:
“One of the things that’s helped me in my recovery is taking every day one day at a time and and I’m a firm believer of starting the day right with an inspirational quote and sort of a morning mediation,” The X-Factor judge explains of the concept.
Demi has been open about her struggles since completing a three-month inpatient treatment for self-mutilation and an eating disorder in 2010.
According its website, the book is a “powerful 365-day collection of Demi’s most honest, brave and hopeful insights. Here are her own words, with quotes that inspire her, as well as personal reflections and goals.”
Staying Strong will be available on November 19th.
Singer discusses her upcoming role as Santana’s lesbian love interest…
Demi Lovato has discussed her upcoming role on hit US show Glee, saying that she hopes her character will inspire others.
The X Factor USA judge has been signed up for a multi-episode arc in season five of the musical drama, as Santana’s love interest.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, she said: “I get to play a lesbian on the show and that’s something that I feel like hasn’t really been brought to primetime with, you know, a young actress.
“And I think it represents where our society is today. It’s becoming the norm and I’m really glad that I get to represent that – how far we’ve come.”
The Heart Attack singer went on: “You know, 15 years ago you wouldn’t have seen that on TV, but now people are becoming more comfortable with it and I’m glad that I get to represent that, and also, just hopefully inspire people with my character to love who they are and accept who they are and not give a c**p what other people think.”
Lovato added that she has enjoyed working with her friends in the cast, and praised 21-year-old Lea Michele, who returned to the set soon after the tragic death of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith.
“She’s great,” Demi said. “She’s such a strong woman and I’m so proud of her. Love her so much.”
The new series of Glee begins in the US on 26 September, with the show to be broadcast by Sky1 in the UK within seven days of the US premiere.
On behalf of of Kimmy, Jen, and myself, we would like to wish Demi a very happy 21st birthday! We hope you get to spend this day with all your friends & family! We wish you another wonderful year of success, happiness, health, and love. Thank you for all that you do!
Make sure you send Demi your birthday wishes on Twitter!
Demi Lovato wanted a really special place to celebrate the release of her brand-new album, out Tuesday (May 14). She spent the morning with her mom blasting Demi and driving around New York City, but she decided to make a pit stop at MTV to hang out with her fans for an extra-fun release party.
In the half-hour that was “Demi Lovato: Live From MTV,” Lovatics got a breakdown of the album’s songs, asked the singer questions and played charades. And, you know, it was Demi, so of course we were going to get a down-to-earth interview with heart-to-hearts and honest answers. But when it came to games with the audience, we weren’t really expecting her to get raunchy.
Along with playing “kittyoke,” MTV’s version of karaoke that only uses “meows,” Demi sat down with an iPad to draw out the titles of her songs for the Lovatics to guess. For “Made in the U.S.A.,” she drew a American flag, which fans got right away. Easy peezy! But when it came to drawing “Heart Attack” and “Nightingale,” Lovatics were left a little confused with the, um, male genitalia projected behind her. (Make sure you watch the clips for the full hilarity to sink in.)
Lovato got serious after a few laughs and began talking about the writing process on her album. She told fans that she only didn’t write three out of the 13 songs on the album, so her internal voice went deep into the making of the LP.
“I feel like if you’re only singing other people’s songs, it makes it harder for people to understand your story and relate,” she said. “It was my goal to write every single song on the album, and then I fell in love with songs I didn’t write.”
Writing “Shouldn’t Come Back” was one of the songs were she made a lot of changes because of the extreme emotion she was feeling.
“There was a turning point in the song where it was about one thing, but I was like, ‘I want to try something new.’ So I just like, sang, kind of free-styled the lyrics, and I just changed the song completely. And my producers in the studio were like, ‘Whoa, this just got heavy.’ ”
The “Heart Attack” diva spilled about her second go on “X Factor,” revealing there might be a judge announcement in the next week. “I’ve gotten close to some of the contestants. Now, I just, I want to see new talent. I want to be part of that journey again. It just makes you feel really great.” And will enjoy sitting next to frenemy Simon Cowell? “I didn’t say that,” she joked.
Demi Lovato‘s latest album Demi dropped today and the 20-year-old songstress phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk her excitement and revealed which songs are the most personal to her.
The “Heart Attack” singer decided to name her fourth studio album Demi because she’s “never had a self titled album … I feel like this album represents me the best that any album has ever represented me.”
The newly-blond singer continued: “I’m starting a new chapter and a new world in my career coming out in radio songs and more of the mainstream world and some people are hearing me for the first time and I want them to see this is who I am and this is my music and this is what I’m all about.”
And Demi didn’t hold back on letting people know who she is and what she’s about with tracks like “Warrior.” In fact, she revealed: “In this song, I wrote it about something that I had never really talked about before and I’m pretty open with my story but the lyrics kind of say it all it in that song.”
“It was really emotional and hard for me to write that song because I was so vulnerable and was so raw with the lyrics. And just when you’re in the recording booth and you’re singing a very vulnerable song, there were tears. It was intense, and it’s heavy. When I play it for people I almost feel like I’m naked in a way, like I don’t want to be in the room when people listen to it.”
And this isn’t the first track Demi says makes her feel uneasy. “I released another song awhile ago called ‘For the Love of A Daughter’ and that one is a pretty heavy song, as well, and I’ve never performed that live, so I don’t know if I’ll even perform this one live, but it depends on how comfortable I feel when I go on tour.”
Where Demi did feel comfortable was on stage at Wango Tango last weekend. “It felt amazing, even just being a part of Wango Tango felt awesome,” she says. “Obviously, I’ve never played and I was super excited. I love performing in front of huge crowds like that. It’s such a great feeling.”
Another great feeling? The Demi and Taylor Swift mashup that made it’s way onto the Internet last month. So has Demi heard the tune?
“Yeah isn’t that awesome? I heard that and I was like, ‘isn’t that awesome?!’”
Aggrievedness suits Demi Lovato well; always has. In her Disney days, she was — relatively speaking — the hellion of the crew, interested in abraded rock, tough-girl postures and smiles that cracked to reveal sneers.
Her years since teen-idol days have been chaotic: some great music and some not-so-great music, public struggles with bulimia and cutting, and in her latest phase, a role as empowerer in chief on the judging panel of “The X Factor.” Compared to the near-catatonic Britney Spears, Ms. Lovato was refreshingly direct, stern when she needed to be, but more often a source of wisdom. She was also a surprisingly good foil for Simon Cowell, whose signature disdain rolls off Ms. Lovato like so much rain and whom Ms. Lovato rightly sees as a bloated target, not an unstoppable monster.
She has dealt with far worse: that is clear from her music, which has been credibly tense and wounded almost from the start, a tone that continues unabated and even enhanced on “Demi,” her often impressive fourth album. Produced by the Suspex, the duo of Mitch Allan and Jason Evigan, it smartly abandons the pop-R&B songs of her last album, “Unbroken” — easily her shakiest to date — and recasts Ms. Lovato, rightly, in the Kelly Clarkson mold of big-throated singers who have had quite enough, thank you very much.
Unlike Ms. Clarkson, though, Ms. Lovato’s armor is not primarily vocal (though when she abandons the heavy vocal processing, she sings with firmness and an evident touch of vulnerability). “Heart Attack,” the single, has Ms. Clarkson’s familiar loud-soft pop-rock dynamics, matched with Ms. Lovato’s familiar self-doubt: “Never had trouble getting what I want/but when it comes to you I’m never good enough.” And throughout this album, from the chipper “Really Don’t Care” to the theatrical “Warrior,” to the bruising “Fire Starter,” she’s showing off her thick skin.
The production, too, is part of that skin, and it’s generally when it’s stripped down that Ms. Lovato confesses to any weaknesses, as on “Shouldn’t Come Back,” the latest in a suite of songs aimed at her estranged father, and also on the outstanding “In Case,” strikingly written by Priscilla Renea and Emanuel Kiriakou, which echoes the pomp of her 2011 hit “Skyscraper.” It places Ms. Lovato somewhere unusual: at someone else’s mercy — “Strong enough to leave you, but weak enough to need you.”
Ms. Lovato wears that frailty well, but not for long. A few songs later is the album’s other highlight, the breezy and tart “Something That We’re Not.” It’s a sign of pop’s out-of-whack gender relations that a song like this, in which an empowered woman blows off a guy who wants more, is so rare and therefore so bracing. “Don’t introduce me to any of your friends,” she commands. “Delete my number, don’t call me again/We had some fun but now it’s gonna end.” No arguments here.

And then there were two. Right now, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell are the only two folks sitting on the “X Factor” judges table after both L.A. Reid and Britney Spears parted ways with the series. So, what’s next?
Well, Lovato, who is stopping by the MTV Newsroom on Tuesday for an MTV.com live stream at 3 p.m. ET, dished that there are some A-list acts in the running to join the show. Simon has even reached out to Demi for ideas. “Yes! He has! I’ll like text him and be like ‘I have a crazy idea!’ And he’s like ‘Who? Talk to me!’ And I’ll like call him or whatever and we’ll talk,” she told MTV News on Monday (May 13) at the Fox upfront presentation. “I’m not letting you know any of them. You’ll find out soon enough. We have to make a decision soon.”
As it turns out, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the names being tossed around. She added, “Simon is like ‘Anything is possible.’ Last year we had Britney Spears. That was incredible.”
While Spears won’t be back for more “X Factor” fun for the show’s third season, her mentoring was felt by more than just the contestants before her departure. “What I learned from Britney is that you don’t have to change. Her family, we laughed several times, ’cause our families are so similar. Our moms are super close now,” she revealed. “And our dads are really similar. She has this southern down-to-earth family. And she’s still a southern down-to-earth girl. I already knew that you don’t have to change in the industry, but even at her level of success being the icon that she is, it was really refreshing.”
She also learned a thing or two from herself. “The thing that I learned in my first season of the ‘X Factor’ was, I mean I already knew I’m a bit of a control freak but I think I had this idea, this vision of what I wanted as what my ideal winner of the competition and with this time I’m going to keep an open mind and have fun,” she said. “And not be so focused on the competition aspect of it. I think I’m just going to relax and have fun.”
To hear more from Demi about her next season on “X Factor” stick with MTV News on Tuesday, the day her self-titled album arrives, for a 30-minute “Live From MTV” live stream on MTV.com and MTV Hits, where she will take questions from her fans.
Lovato will hang out with MTV News as well as a group of her biggest fans for an exclusive interview at 3 p.m. ET. Have any questions for Demi? Join the conversation by tweeting @MTVBuzzworthy using the hashtag #AskDemi.
