ARTICLES: X Factor – Ryan Seacrest Asks to Guest Host, Simon Cowell Wants Demi Lovato Back
Amid a judges overhaul, Demi Lovato could be returning to The X Factor, with executive producer Simon Cowell admitting that “we’d be crazy not to have her back.”
In an interview with his former American Idol cohort Ryan Seacrest, Cowell said that “I liked having Demi on the show” and that “she’s fun to work with.” But, of course, “nothing is official.”
Season three of X Factor quickly is approaching, with the first round of auditions kicking off March 6 in Los Angeles. So far, replacements have not been named for exiting judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, nor have co-hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian been confirmed to return.
“We’re talking to people all the time, and hopefully within a couple of weeks we might announce the first two,” said Cowell of the judges panel.
And while Seacrest is committed to Idol for at least one more season after its current cycle wraps, he is hoping for an onscreen reunion with the Brit that hired him for Idol’s 2002 U.S. debut.
“Would you allow me to guest-host one live X Factor?” he proposed to Cowell, confessing that he misses their banter.
“Yes,” was Cowell’s immediate reply, though there was a disagreement over whether Seacrest would shill for Coca-Cola (American Idol’s sponsor) or Pepsi (X Factor’s sponsor) during the stint.
Demi Lovato has “no idea” if she’ll return as a judge on the next season of “The X Factor,” but if she does, well, she’s got a pretty good idea of who, she’d like to see join her on the panel: Lady Gaga.
Yes, in a new interview with Extra, Lovato said that she’s hoping to see the Mother Monster replace departing judge Britney Spears on the show (or perhaps departing judge L.A. Reid … she’s just that versatile), but was also quick to add that landing Gaga for the gig might be a long-shot.
“I would love to see Lady Gaga,” Lovato said. “I don’t know if that’s possible or not.”
Hey, you never know … Gaga’s schedule has just gotten a whole lot lighter. And while she’s campaigning for LG to join her on the third season of the struggling show, the fact remains that Lovato herself still isn’t sure if she’ll return. After all, she’s got her musical career to focus on.
“I have no idea what’s gonna happen next season, and I don’t think anybody does,” Lovato told MTV News. “It’s just crazy ’cause at the same time, just like L.A. is, I’m trying to build a career for my own too. It was an amazing experience and I loved doing this show. It’s just, there’s no way to tell.
And a part of that career is her new single “Heart Attack,” and an upcoming album, which, as she explained to MTV News, shows her continued maturation as an artist.
“For a while, I could tell that when people would talk to me, they knew my story. I think I’ve opened up more on this album. My life began to evolve and I started to grow,” she explained. “These are songs about the celebration of life and how rewarding it can be. This is what this album is about.”
Would Gaga make a good ‘X Factor’ judge? Let us know in the comments below!
Replacing Britney Spears on the X Factor won’t be easy.
While her work may not have gotten great reviews, it certainly generated a lot of publicity for the singing competition show.
“I don’t know,” fellow judge Demi Lovato said at last night’s Topshop dinner at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood when I asked her to name a possible replacement. “I mean, who can replace Britney, let’s be honest.”
Very good point.
Spears announced about a month ago she was leaving the show after just one season—and a $15 million paycheck! “I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season,” she said in a statement. “I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my Teens, but it’s time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
Also not returning for a third season is L.A. Reid.
Meanwhile, Lovato hobbled into the party on crutches. She’s been in a cast since falling at home about 10 days ago when her roommate apparently cleaned the floor with Pledge.
The cast, which Lovato needs to wear for another four weeks, is now decorated with silver studs.

Crush: Hollywood’s Next Generation

When we met up with Demi Lovato in New York City earlier this month, we had no idea what she’d look like when we arrived. Of course we’re very familiar with her work — and love watching her sass it up to Simon Cowell on “The X Factor” — but she’s become such a hair chameleon this year we weren’t sure we’d recognize her. We quickly discovered the 20-year-old is going through a blond phase — with bangs, no extensions — when we were brought in to meet her as she sat barefoot curled up on a couch.
“It’s crazy,” Lovato tells omg! about life as a blonde. “I never ever thought that I would go blond, but I’m having fun with it.” As for the bangs, I just feel like myself again. It reminds me of being 15 again — when I was doing ‘Camp Rock.’ I don’t know how long I’ll keep them, but for the meantime it just makes me feel like myself.”
After a difficult few years, which included a much publicized stint in rehab for emotional issues, including cutting and an eating disorder, feeling like herself is an amazing thing. And on “X Factor,” she seems right at home as she sits alongside Cowell, Britney Spears, and L.A. Reid critiquing aspiring singers. While the cranky Cowell — who is 33 years her senior — could be an intimidating person to go head-to-head with, Lovato seems undaunted when it comes to facing off against her boss. “I love messing with him,” Lovato laughs. “He’s really funny and I have a lot of fun working with him. But someone has to put him in his place. I mean — you can’t come to the United States from England and make fun of all of us! I have to stand up for my country.”
Something else Lovato is taking a stand against is bullying. She recently partnered up with Secret deodorant for their Mean Stinks campaign, which is an effort to bring an end to girl-on-girl harassment. “Well, it’s not a surprise,” she says of her involvement. “I’ve talked a lot about my past experiences. Most of my issues stemmed from the trauma of being bullied when I was 12 years old. I’ve also known people who have taken their lives because of bullying. It’s something I never want to see happen again. So if I can put an end to it, I’m going to do anything I can to stop it.”
Part of the campaign involves girls painting their pinky nails blue in a sort of pinky swear promise to end bullying, which led to a conversation about the celebrity nail art trend. Lovato says she’s not a fan. “I don’t like nail art,” she says. “I used to be obsessed — I’d have a cupcake on one finger and leopard on the other. These days I’m a pretty simple girl when it comes to nails. I either wear clear polish, black or dark red — that’s it.” So we won’t see her next album cover painted on her index finger? “I leave that to Katy Perry,” she smiles.
Speaking of her next album, Lovato is hard at work on her fourth one, which will be out next year. What can people expect? “I’m bringing the sound of real music back,” she previews, sharing that she has three or four songs completed. “I think Adele does a great job — they are catchy pop songs, but it’s real music and there are instruments. I want to bring a lot of that back. There’s going to be some fun, light-hearted songs with kind of a throwback sound. But I say one thing and then I spend like a month in the studio and it ends up being totally different, so I don’t know,” she laughs.
So how does Lovato find time to balance all her projects with maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-treatment? “I make time,” Lovato says, sounding much older than her years. “I’m a really dedicated person. And I know that if I work really, really hard now, I can get to the place that I want to be in my career so that maybe in a couple years — or whenever I make it to that level — I can take a break.” What would she do? “Travel the world. Spend a ton of time with my family. Maybe start a family,” she says, shooting out ideas fast and furiously before quickly adding, “Years and years down the road.”
Sounds like after a rocky road, she’s got things figured out.

The 20-year-old musician opened up to the glossy about her ‘friend cleanse’, Niall Horan, and X Factor. Check it:
On her role as a mentor on X Factor: “There’s so much more to it than just being a talented singer. I’m going to help them mentally prepare for everything that’s coming—like, all these things that have happened to me recently, I really attribute them, in part, to the work that I’ve been doing on myself. The second that I became more centered and aware of who I am, my performances got better, and I was better able to relate to people. For a long time, I was pretending to be someone that I wasn’t, and I was miserable. When I came out and said, “I’m human, I’ve got problems, but I’m willing to share them,” that’s when I started to really connect. I’ve just begun working on my fourth album, and I want to do that in my music too. I’m tired of songs that don’t have much emotion in them.”
On keeping good friends close: “I’m consistently busy, but I make sure I spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I did kind of a friend cleanse right after rehab, where I weeded out people who didn’t have my best interests at heart. Now I have friends who love me for who I am and don’t care about what I’m doing. Most of them aren’t in the industry. Some of them don’t even know my songs!”
On dating rumors between her and Niall: “He’s a really awesome, sweet guy. But he’s not my boyfriend…. I’m in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself. Obviously, I’m still going to like people—or love them—but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be okay with being alone, first. I’m really happy right now. I never thought it was possible to be happy because of how depressed I was my entire life. But I feel so incredible. It’s like I’m living in a dream.”
Demi Lovato’s VMA Performance Track ‘Give Your Heart A Break’: The Inside Story
Sep 5 2012 6:53 AM EDT
By Jocelyn Vena
Demi Lovato is set to take the stage during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show on Thursday, September 6, and the big-voiced “X Factor” judge will be performing her chart-topping Unbroken single “Give Your Heart a Break.”
The tune and the VMA-nominated video — she’s up for Best Video With A Message — follow Lovato as she convinces her crush he shouldn’t be scared to fall for her. If you ask us, it shouldn’t take that much convincing. Before she performs on Thursday, MTV News got the inside scoop on the song from one of its songwriters, Billy Steinberg.
Steinberg, along with Josh Alexander, met up with Lovato after they had already written the track, without any particular singer attached to it. Once a record exec at Hollywood Records heard their demo, he knew Lovato was the perfect singer for it. “She sang it really well and that’s how it came about,” Steinberg said of the recording session for the track. “We were thrilled that she sang it really well. Sometimes it’s a roll of the dice, you know?
“My partner Josh Alexander … knew her voice a little better than I did, and he felt that she’d do a good job on it,” he further explained. “I didn’t know as much about her.” Once they did meet up, what the trio created was pop gold. “You know, there’s nothing better for a songwriter than writing a good song and having the right singer sing it,” he said.
“I’ll give you another example from my career where I really felt that I got very lucky: when Cyndi Lauper recorded ‘True Colors.’ And, you know, ‘True Colors’ was a ballad and a lot of different people could have sung it, but Cyndi gave it something special, and I’d say the same is true of ‘Give Your Heart a Break,’ ” Steinberg explained. “Whether it was luck or divine guidance or whatever you want to call it, I think the song got in the right hands.”
The song is having a moment long after it was originally released. Not only will Lovato belt it out on the VMA pre-show stage Thursday, but it is currently #1 on the Pop Songs chart on Billboard. It’s been a long haul to get to this point for the song after it was released to radio last December. And Steinberg might know why it took long for pop-music lovers to fall for the track.
“You know, I just think it took a long time for numerous reasons. I think one, it’s not a trendy dance track. It’s kind of almost an old-school song with a verse and a chorus and a bridge. It’s kind of an old-fashioned song. … [And] Demi’s not like Rihanna or somebody who radio programmers see she has a new single and they all add it instantaneously.
“I think for the most part she was fairly unproven at radio and the song wasn’t real trendy … so I think all those things made it take some time,” he continued. “But she does have a devoted following and the fanbase she does have really pushed the song and Hollywood Records did a great job to promote the song. And the fact that it was a great song that was really sung well, it just built up steam. It took time, but it happened.”
With only a little bit of time before she performs the song on the VMA pre-show stage, Steinberg was asked whether he has any advice for the singer. “I don’t really have any advice for her. I think she’s a very capable singer and a very capable performer and sing it from her heart, she does that,” he said. “I think [her voice] has two qualities. It’s a strong voice and an emotional voice. I think one of the nice things about her voice is it’s both … and that’s a wonderful quality.”
The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are set to go live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET/PT. But before it all goes down, don’t miss our “Jersey Shore” special “Gym, Tan, Look Back” at 6 p.m. and our pre-show with Demi Lovato at 7 p.m.! And head over to VMA.MTV.com to vote on Best New Artist and Most Share-Worthy Video!
Radio stations across the country are preparing for their holiday concerts, such as the Jingle Ball. So recently Q102, Y100 and 93.3 FLZ opened up their polls asking fans who they want to perform at this year’s show, and so far all three say Demi Lovato! She is ruling both polls with fans asking for her to come out and sing on their stages as a real holiday treat. You can vote for her at all three websites for the radio stations, if you live in those towns (or around there). They also list other singers or bands that you can vote for, if Demi’s is not your cup of tea. As for when the concerts will take place, that is still too early to tell.
I am so happy for Demi! That is a huge news for her and once again shows that her fan base is there for her. However, I know she is busy and I am not sure how much free time she will have when the holidays roll around. So it is something I am not sure if it could happen, even though I am sure Demi would love to do the shows. Hopefully time will prove me wrong, but I do think it is safe to say that One Direction has a good chance at being picked as well.
How do you feel about this news? Should Demi do these holiday shows or not? I cannot say either way, but it would be nice if she could. However, I wouldn’t be shocked if they still do come up with an impressive lineup regardless if Demi does or does not join. I could easily see Carly Rae Jepsen or Justin Bieber, but I do suspect that at least one show will have One Direction join. It seems like whoever is popular earlier in the year gets the gig, which would mean One Direction is set for it with ease.
Demi Lovato is in talks to be the new face of Topshop, which is due to open a store in The Grove, Los Angeles.
Demi Lovato is set to be the new face of Topshop.
The 19-year-old star is in talks to be the new covergirl of the British retailer when the company opens a store in The Grove, Los Angeles, at the old site of Banana Republic.
A source told Hollyscoop: ”Demi is a huge fan of the brand, but nothing has become official quite yet.
”Demi Lovato is in negotiations to be the new face of Topshop, which is also known as Topman. It is a British couture clothing store that is coming to the US now.
”They are opening up a shop in The Grove, where Banana Republic used to be. They really want Demi and she has already sat down to go over figures.”
Kate Moss has previously modelled for Topshop – which has a spin-off brand called Topman, which caters for male customers and is now run as a separate chain – but the company has never used a celebrity as the face of their brand.
Demi has an ideal platform to be seen in Topshop clothing as she is currently a judge on US ‘X Factor’ – alongside Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid – a position she took up in May this year.
