If you thought the “Chains” music video was the most exciting Nick Jonas news of the day…brace yourselves for this one: Demi Lovato is confirmed to sing a duet with Nick on his new album.
We knew that Demi and Nick were up to something when she posted a pic of her hand and another person’s hand recently in the studio, giving the thumbs up. She teased: “Recorded a KILLER duet today…. Can you guess who it was with?” It didn’t take long to figure out it was Nick, but we didn’t know when we’d hear their collaboration. Nick’s album will be coming out in the fall, so it’s not long now.
Nick confirmed the duet buzz, telling E! News, “We did one for my record,” adding, “It’s a great song that we both love. Her voice is just amazing on it. She’s the real deal. It’s the perfect fit for this record.”
We. Can’t. Wait.
Demi Lovato is shaking things up once again, this time signing on to become the latest face of the popular brand, Skechers.
According to MTV, Demi has signed on as the new face of Skechers through 2016. The “Really Don’t Care” singer has been making news quite a lot as of late, and for a change, it’s pretty much all been positive news!
Demi has been stepping out in the world, attempting to spread messages of positive attitudes and acceptance. One way she has attempted to do this is through her recent hit song, “Really Don’t Care.” In a recent report by The Inquisitr, Demi reportedly transformed her break up anthem into a song about not caring what other’s think as long as you accept yourself. Demi reportedly told E! Online:
“When I originally wrote it, it was a breakup song. But now I have sung it so many times that it kind of no longer has a significance in that sort of way. When I sing it, I always want to inspire and empower. I thought what other people could relate to really not caring what people think. I thought of bullies and the LGBT community who are constantly scrutinized.”
With all the positive publicity surrounding Demi Lovato, is it really any surprise that she was asked to be the new face of Skechers? According to the Wall Street Journal, Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers, listed the singer’s unique personality as one of many reasons why they wanted her to become the face of their company’s global marketing and social media campaign through 2016.
“With her amazing voice, distinct style, and unique personality, Demi Lovato represents everything we look for in a Skechers star. Demi’s talent certifies her position as a pop music superstar as well as a powerful influencer with millions of fans around the globe. We expect her Skechers campaign will at the very least match the success and reach that Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood previously brought to our brand.”
So what was the motivation behind Demi Lovato’s acceptance of the contract with Skechers? MTV reported that it was nostalgia:
“My generation grew up with Skechers and now with all of their cool styles and fun colors I’m excited to help introduce the collection to a new generation by sharing this incredible brand’s campaign with my Lovatics!”
Demi Lovato is expected to appear in both television and print ad campaigns later this year.
Demi Lovato is so tight with Ryan, she’s even dreaming about him now!
The “Really Don’t Care” singer called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Friday morning to tell him about a weird dream she had … in which Ryan was crying.
“I wanted to make sure you were okay,” Demi joked to Ryan. “I had this dream and … first of all, we were football players on the same team and we were in the locker room and you were crying to me and you were asking for girl advice.”
Ryan was so perplexed by this — even though he felt lucky enough to make it into a Demi Lovato dream — he decided to call a dream analyst to figure out what it all meant.
But Michael’s diagnosis was just as head-scratching. “It sounds like Demi’s in the midst of some sort of change.” So then why is Ryan crying in the dream? “It sounds like you’re letting him down,” Michael tells Demi. “My thought is she’s in some sort of transition and she’s trying to work something out.”
When she’s not dreaming about Ryan crying, Demi has been gearing up for her Demi World Tour, which kicks off on September 6 in Baltimore.
“I’m going to start rehearsals very soon,” says the 21-year-old, who has a very special show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on September 27. “I’m still putting together surprises and things like that, so I’m not entirely sure what’s going to happen. But I know it will be something. I’ve never played Staples, so I want it to be unforgettable.”
Demi has also been spending time in the recording studio working on the follow-up to last year’s Demi. In a recent tweet, she said, “Mark my words … it’s amazing.” So was she trying to tell us she was in the studio with someone named Mark, asked Ellen K.
“No, that’s really cryptic if you thought that,” says Demi, who adds that she wasn’t working with Ed Sheeran either. “I was by myself.”
I’ve just updated the gallery with new photoshoots, magazine scans from NYLON and Seventeen, as well as Demi’s performance at NYC Pride and when she was at UFC 175.

Demi Lovato is living proof that life gets better.
The “Really Don’t Care” singer entered rehab in late 2010, and since then, she has been an advocate for people dealing with mental health issues. Lovato guest-edits and covers Seventeen’s August 2014 issue, where she once again discusses her emotional journey and gives advice to those facing similar struggles.
“Since I went to treatment, there have been days when it’s felt really easy, and I’ve felt great about where I am. But then I have moments when it’s not. That’s life,” she says. “You can’t just take your mind and your body into the shop and get it fixed. It doesn’t come out repaired. It’s not like a car. It takes time—pace yourself. Every day is a new opportunity to change your life and be who you want to be.”
“I used to think that confidence came from what other people thought about me, and boys and everything else,” the Camp Rock star tells the magazine. “But now I realize that confidence comes from what I feel about myself, and reassuring myself that I can do whatever I want and be whoever I want.”
According to Lovato, it’s important to surround oneself with like-minded people.
“I like to have friends in my life who believe they’re going places and are working toward their dreams,” the pop star explains. “When you’re growing and the people around you aren’t, that’s when you have to start shedding them. I’ve done that a lot over the past few years, but it has been so worth it, because the people in my life today inspire me to keep being creative, to have fun, and to be a good person.”
How does Lovato foster positivity? “I tell myself five things that I’m grateful for, for every negative thing that I think,” the singer explains. “You know how people have swear jars, where if you swear you have to put a dollar in the jar? You could do that with feeling insecure—every time a friend says something bad about [himself/herself], they have to put a dollar in a jar. [And then] you can donate it to charity.”
Changing her perspective has been life changing, particularly when people can be cruel via social media.
“I’m impulsive when it comes to fighting back, but I’ve learned to reel it in,” the former Sonny With a Chance star tells Seventeen. “Tweeting without thinking does more harm than good. So take a second. Journal what you want to say, and then if you still feel the same later, that’s when you can tweet it.”
The sober star is proud of her progress, and she hopes sharing her story will help others. “I know that if my career were to fall apart tomorrow—even if I were to never have money or fame again—I’d still have value in my soul,” Lovato explains, “because I know that I can have an effect on someone else’s life.”
