ARTICLE: Demi Lovato Opens Up On Demi, Hangs With Lovatics And Draws Dirty Pics
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.
After the departure of judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato are looking to have a little more fun when the Fox reality singing competition returns in the fall.
We caught up with Lovato, whose new album DEMI officially dropped on Tuesday, on the red carpet at Fox’s upfront presentation in New York City, where she tells us that season three will have “a more relaxed energy.” Plus, she reveals how her judging style will change in season three and her thoughts on Cowell possibly returning to Idol…
“I’m kind of come back as like it’s my second time, it’s not my first time anymore, so it’s more comfortable,” Demi explains of how season three will differ from season two. “And I feel like with that being said, I feel like I’m probably going to be more comfortable this year.”
She continues, “Simon even said, ‘Look, let’s just have fun. It’s all about having fun. Last year was really serious and this year it just needs to be having fun.’ I think it will be more relaxed.”
Of course, Fox’s other reality hit, American Idol, is reportedly looking for new judges for next season and Lovato is not hearing any talk of Cowell possibly returning to his old show. “That would be so messed up!” she exclaims. “Simon wouldn’t do it. X Factor’s better!” Oh snap!
Aside from gearing up for X Factor’s new season, Lovato’s new album DEMI was officially released at midnight, and the singer tell us, “It feels pretty incredible. I’m really excited about it. It feels like Christmas except a Christmas that you only get certain years!”
Lovato says she put “a lot of personal experience, a lot of vulnerability and emotion” into the new album,” but also notes that fans can expect “a lot of great pop music.”
“‘Unbroken’ wasn’t my favorite album, and this one is my favorite one so far,” the 20-year-old pop star tells Billboard.
Last Tuesday (May 7), Demi Lovato asked her 13 million Twitter followers, “What’s your favorite song off #DEMI??” Her fourth studio album, “Demi,” was to be released on May 14 through Hollywood Records, but the 20-year-old pop singer posted the full album online eight days earlier, and wanted to get some instant feedback. The question was retweeted 18,000 times, with responses ranging from the sassy synth flare-up “Fire Starter” to the yearning ballad “Nightingale” to “Heart Attack,” the album’s lead single, which currently sits at No. 12 on the Hot 100 chart.
“I actually wanted to see what everyone’s favorite was,” Lovato tells Billboard, “but there wasn’t one song that stood out as everyone’s favorite. A lot of the time the fans were like, ‘Oh, there’s too many good ones to name!’ And that was really cool… but I actually wanted to know what their favorite was.”
It’s a good problem for Lovato to have — two and a half years after withdrawing from a world tour to enter a treatment facility and confront “physical and emotional issues,” the singer has become one of the most in-demand young artists in pop music, thanks in part to a comeback album, 2011′s “Unbroken,” that spawned the radio smash “Give Your Heart a Break” and netted her a spot on the judges panel of the U.S. version of “The X Factor” last year. “Demi” is a more diverse album than “Unbroken” (read the Billboard track-by-track review here), expanding Lovato’s repertoire while keeping her powerful pipes front and center; it’s an album that carries a wealth of Top 40 offerings, and could very well continue the singer’s upward trajectory towards ubiquity.
Before “Demi’s” release, Lovato chatted with Billboard about idolizing vocal powerhouses, re-upping with “The X Factor” and why “Demi” captures who she is in a way that “Unbroken” did not.
Billboard: “Demi” is out this Tuesday. Are you the type of person that keeps a close eye on first-week album sales?
Lovato: I’m definitely the type of person that’s gonna be watching it and wanting it to do well, but I have to tell myself that music isn’t just coming out for a week — it’s about the long run. I’m putting this music out there to be around for a long time, so if it does well this next week, great, and if it doesn’t, whatever, because I’ll hopefully be around in this industry for a long time.
Your last album, “Unbroken,” became your best-selling album and had the biggest hit of your career. Did you go into “Demi” with more pressure or less pressure on yourself?
I think with every album there’s more pressure, because you always want to do better than the last album. I want a career that’s going to last me a long time, so in order to do that, you have to keep making great music. For me, “Unbroken” wasn’t my favorite album, and this one is my favorite one so far. I put a lot of work into it, and I think it’s going to be my most successful album to date.
What about “Unbroken” made it resonate with you less?
I don’t know! I got sick of the songs. When I would play them onstage, I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t play these anymore.’ And I have to wonder, was that album really who I was? Was I just experimenting with sounds? I think I wanted to try something more R&B, but when I tried that, it wasn’t really me. And so with this album, I’m so excited to play new music rather than getting tired of the songs.
What message did you want these new songs to convey?
I always want to make positive music. Obviously I’m gonna have my songs about heartbreak and break-ups, but with this album… I get sick of listening to the radio and hearing only music that’s talking about partying and drinking and getting high. That’s not what I do. It’s not what I stand for. Maybe a couple years ago I would have loved it, but I’m not the same person I was a few years ago. Now when I listen to the radio, I can’t relate to a lot of it.
With my album this time, I wanted to go into it keeping in mind that I want to listen to stuff on the radio that I can relate to. I think the reason why artists like Adele and Taylor Swift are so relatable is because they talk about their experiences and pour it out in their songs. There’s a lot more to their music than just partying and going out.
It could have been easy for you to bring in a bunch of guest vocalists for the album, but there’s only one feature — Cher Lloyd on “Really Don’t Care.”
I think I needed to make an album where I established my artistry before I collaborated with a ton of people. On the last album, I collaborated with a lot of people, and at the end of the day, I felt like, ‘Is it my album, or a bunch of people’s album?’ If I’m coming out with something that represents who I am today, as an independent woman, I want it to be very obvious that my album is about me and my life, and not about a bunch of people coming together and making music. That’s great, and it’s fun to collaborate with people, but I have an opportunity to express who I am, and I didn’t want a bunch of people on the album trying to help me do that.
The most personal song on the album is the final track, “Warrior,” which references everything you went through before “Unbroken.” How hard is it to write a song like that?
That song was probably the hardest and easiest song to write on the album. I was writing about personal experiences, and it’s the type of song where you can’t fit all of it into one song — you can’t put all of the emotions into one song. It was the hardest song to write because it was the most vulnerable for me, and you can’t sum up that experience in three or four minutes. But it was the easiest song at the same time because it’s something that I wanted to say. Like I said in the first line [of the song], ‘This is a story that I’ve never told/I gotta get this off my chest to let it go.’ I wanted to let it go.
What was your reaction the first time you heard the finished song?
I… was really pleased with it. It’s still one of those songs that I don’t like to listen to in front of other people, because I feel really vulnerable and almost naked when other people hear it.
When you were at the Billboard Film & TV Music Conference last fall, you talked about never having to go the “sexy route” with your music, because that never felt true to your personality. Who were some of your female musical idols growing up?
My [recent] inspirations are people like Kelly Clarkson, and the people that I listened to when I was growing up were more known for their vocals rather than their sex appeal. I had a lot of respect for Whitney Houston, and Christina Aguilera, on some songs where she was really amazing and wasn’t trying to be sexy or anything like that. I just found that I had more respect for artists that didn’t talk about that stuff, and those were the ones that were more successful.
I feel like, if you have talent, you don’t have to go down that route. If you don’t have to sing about drinking and partying and sex, then don’t. I have a little sister that’s listening to this music — the last thing I want to do is release music that is gonna influence her in a way that will take her down the wrong path. My dad and my family hear this music! I don’t want to feel too uncomfortable when they’re listening to it.
Are there any up-and-coming pop artists who have impressed you with their vocal ability?
Ariana Grande. She has vocals that are just unbelievable, and I have so much respect for her because she is a true singer. She’s someone that I feel like is going to have a long career because of her voice, and I think she’s going to be a huge name. She’s gonna be great.
“Demi” is being released a few months before “The X Factor” comes back in the fall — no one would have blamed you for taking a break from the show, or leaving it altogether, to promote your new album, but you decided to come back for the third season. Why?
There are multiple reasons. When you have the opportunity to be in front of America every single week several times a week, that’s a very incredible opportunity, not only because your fans get to know you better, but… I was on the Disney Channel forever, and was waiting for that right job that would help me cross over to the mainstream world. I was not only in front of my fans every week, but I was also in front of adults. I never used to get recognized by adults, and now when I’m at the airport or the grocery store, the guy behind the register will be like, “I love you on ‘X Factor’!” It’s really awesome to have expanded my fan base.
And there’s also how much ['X Factor'] did for me last year. I learned so much, and I just want to do it again. I don’t like it when you attach yourself to a judge, and then the judges switch up and you’re like, ‘Oh no!’ I didn’t want any of my fans to think that was me — I didn’t want them to get excited for me to come back, and then I don’t come back, you know? I’m so excited to learn even more next season.
Lovatics, get ready! Not only is Demi Lovato releasing her new album, Demi, on Tuesday, but she will also sit down for a 30-minute “Live From MTV” live stream on MTV.com and MTV Hits, where she will take questions from her fans and reveal the inspiration behind her new album.
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 on Tuesday. Have any questions for Demi? Join the conversation by tweeting @MTVBuzzworthy using the hashtag #AskDemi.
Last week, Lovato’s fans were able to listen to all 13 songs off the pop star’s new album — a mix of ballads and girl-power anthems, including the track, “Really Don’t Care” with former “X Factor” U.K. contestant Cher Lloyd.
Demi later took to Twitter to thank her fans for the support on her new musical effort, “So many incredible fans… Thank you SO much… I’m so thankful for each and every one of you. I love you all!!”
Demi is the former Disney star’s fourth studio album and already has produced the lead single, “Heart Attack.” Earlier this year, “The X Factor” judge gave MTV News a taste of the album’s similarities with 2011′s Unbroken.
“Well, not only does the album say a lot about where I am in life right now [but] like there’s follow-up songs,” she teased. “I feel like one is a follow-up song to ‘Skyscraper.’ I feel like other ones talk about some issues I haven’t spoken about. I’m continuing to let out a lot of things therapeutically on my music and I’m very thankful I have the opportunity to do that.”
So get ready to hear the pop star talk a lot more about her new album during Demi Lovato “Live From MTV” Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET on MTV.com and airing live on MTV Hits! Don’t miss it.
Don’t forget to tweet your questions for Demi to @MTVBuzzworthy with #AskDemi.
English rapper and singer Cher said she was instantly attracted to working on ‘Really Don’t Care‘ with Demi, because it stood out against most other pop songs.
Speaking to MTV, Cher said: ”First of all, I love the song. Like, I really love the song. And I was very excited to put my kind of twist on it.
”I mean, that girl can really sing, and it’s so different. That’s the thing, nowadays it’s so important to be able to be recognised and to be on the radio and for people to know automatically it’s you. And Demi has that and that’s something I really look up to.”
The 19-year-old singer – who hit the charts in 2011 with her single ‘Swagger Jagger’ – added she and Demi are a great pairing because they have so much in common.
She explained: ”I think me and Demi are in some ways kind of similar. We have quite a young fanbase and this is very much a girl power song. You know, it has a great feel to it, and I’m so excited that people get to hear it now.”
Cher is also collaborating on another track called ‘It’s All Good’ with Ne-Yo.
She said: ”We’re just working towards getting a great summer vibe-y track going. Me and Ne-Yo are very much in charge of this whole process, you know, the musical side of it.”
‘Demi’, featuring ‘Really Don’t Care’, will be available in the UK from May 13.
Watch out, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow has a new Hollywood BFF: Demi Lovato.
Turns out the two ladies were on the same flight to NYC yesterday for their appearance on Good Morning America, where they instantly discovered their adoration for each other and even joked they are now “besties” (and fashion twinsies!).
“No, we hadn’t [met],” Lovato revealed on the show while testing recipes from Gwyneth’s new cookbook It’s All Good. “She was in the airport lounge, and I’ve seen Contagion like 10 times, so I was like ‘Oh god, oh god.’”
“Then I sneezed on her when I walked by,” the mother of two adorably interjected.
“I dropped dead,” Demi replied.
The Iron Man star went on to reveal how 8-year-old daughter Apple is a huge fan of the singer, so she simply had to snap a pic with Demi for her little girl.
“It was very exciting actually, because my daughter actually introduced me to Demi’s music and now we’re all big fans in our house, so I asked if I could take the picture for my daughter, who was thrilled,” Chris Martin’s other half explained, as the camera cut to the twosome’s sweet twitpic.
To which Demi revealed how she’s celebrating the duo’s newfound friendship: “So in return I’m releasing my album on Apple’s birthday, May 14…Happy birthday, Apple!” she exclaimed.
Too cute! Talk about the perks of having a celebrity mom.
Lovato blackens at the thought of heartbreak in Chris Applebaum-directed clip, the first visual from her upcoming Demi album.
Need a lesson in staring down love? Demi Lovato is warding it off with her newest video for “Heart Attack,” and she’ll do anything to stop those mushy feelings from sinking in.
The Chris Applebaum-directed clip, which premiered on E! on Tuesday (April 9) night, begins with an intense glare from Lovato as she prepares for battle and puts her defenses up. She emerges from a pool of thick, black paint, saturating her features while she sings the opening lines of the powerful track.
Before things get too dark, shots change and we see Demi smirking and flirting before a white backdrop. She looks fresh-faced and natural, with shimmery eyes, rosy cheeks and pink lips. But as she raises her hands, the black comes back, graphite covering her fingers and forearms.
“You make me glow,” her voice soars over the slow-churning bass. “But I cover up, won’t let it show.”
Masking her radiance, her dark handprints start to cover up her body, like leftover ink from reading a newspaper. Demi curls up her hands, emotion bubbling up and swelling within. She winces and wrenches out the buildup to the chorus, a visible fury gnawing from inside.
As the music drops, Lovato transforms into an aggressive rocker. Her jet-black hair is windblown despite being in a stale garage. Her three-piece band grinds out the jam behind her with their amps stacked up under fluorescent lights and their cords circling the ground Demi stomps on.
Paint the color of gunmetal drips down her white backdrop, as the singer is in full-force, fighting off her crush’s magneticism. The video’s different versions of Demi offer simultaneous harmony and ad-libs as the song ends.
The clip delivered the same type of edginess Demi teased before, and now, fans can see the singer’s black-dipped hands in a new light.
“I’m taking on a different look this time around,” Lovato told MTV News in February. “I feel like I have my own thing going, like rocker-chic sophisticated, just a different kind of fashion style this time around.”
And even though she’s putting her defenses up in “Heart Attack,” one of the song’s producers, Jason Evigan, half of the Suspex, says that Demi’s diving headfirst into her new style, which will shine through on her next album, Demi, out May 14.
“She’s one who is so not about just trying to be what’s on radio,” Evigan said. “She’s a total original soul. She just wants to make what moves her. And if it moves her, she loves it.”
Demi Lovato will return next month with her fourth studio album, as “Demi” has been slated to hit stores on May 14 through Hollywood Records. On Monday (Apr. 1), the album’s release date and cover art — which shows a dead-serious Lovato covered in silver body paint — were officially unveiled.
The official music video for the album’s first single, “Heart Attack,” will premiere next Tuesday night (Apr. 9) on E! News. After the song scored Lovato’s biggest sales week for a single upon its debut in February, “Heart Attack” sits at No. 21 on the current Hot 100 chart.
“Demi” is the follow-up to 2011′s “Unbroken,” which has sold 448,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That album was led by the ballad “Skyscraper,” which gave Lovato her first Top 10 single, and also spawned the hit “Give Your Heart a Break,” which spent 32 weeks on the Hot 100 in 2012.
The Suspex, Ryan Tedder, Carl Falk, Jonas Jeberg, Matt Rad and Rami Yacoub are among the producers and writers with credits on “Demi.” Of the new album, Lovato says in a press statement, “It’s better than anything I have ever done! I experimented with a variety of different sounds and poured my heart into writing these songs. I’m so excited for everyone to finally get the chance to hear them!”
This week, Lovato kicks off an ambitious press run, stopping by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday night, “Dancing With The Stars” on Tuesday, “Good Morning America” next Wednesday (Apr. 10) and “Kelly & Michael” next Thursday (Apr. 11). The 20-year-old pop star will also return as a judge on the U.S. version of “The X Factor” this fall.
Pre-orders for “Demi” begin on Tuesday in North America, and next Tuesday (Apr. 9) for the rest of the world.
Recently, Demi Lovato gave the scoop about her new album and her future, including her desire to settle down and start a family soon.
While we’re eagerly awaiting the release of Demi’s new album, she does shed a little light on what fans can expect, calling it “just all-around better than anything I’ve ever done.”
Demi tells Parade.com in a new interview, “I think it’s been a trial-and-error process with my music and just trying to figure out who I am. I’m slowly but surely, as my career goes on, figuring more of that out, and I think I got a pretty good idea of where I’m at today and things I want to talk about.”
As for the album’s sound, expect something different, as Demi shared, “There are differences between each song. Some kind of have a rock vibe to them, some are just really raw, they don’t have any background vocals and it’s just me and guitar and strings. And there are some that are dance songs. Everything is different, but ultimately I just wanted it to be good pop music.”
Demi also talked about wanting to settle down after she puts in some hard work, saying, “I think I’m going to work really, really hard for the next couple years and then after that, just settle down and either have a family, or travel the world and do just a bunch of charity stuff, and just spend time with my family.”
She added, “I want to make sure I’m living my life to the fullest and make sure I give myself the opportunity to achieve my dreams, but I don’t want to deprive myself of life, family and love.”
