This is real, this is me, this is exactly where Demi Lovato’s supposed to be.
The singer is set to star in Will Ferrell’s Netflix comedy film Eurovision, making her first live-action movie appearance since 2010’s Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.
Lovato will play Katiana, one of the best and most angelic singers in all of Iceland, Netflix announced Tuesday. She joins Ferrell and Rachel McAdams, who will star as aspiring Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir.
Ferrell confirmed the news in a video that doubled as a birthday shoutout to Lovato, who just turned 27. She is shown blowing out candles on a cake next to a slate, perhaps indicating that she’s begun shooting her part.
Coming clean. Demi Lovato is prepared to open up about the events that transpired before her near-fatal overdose on her hotly anticipated seventh studio album.
Lovato, 26, teased details about her next record in an Instagram Stories post on Tuesday, June 25. She dished what she enjoys most about creating a record.
“You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it…” she wrote on Tuesday, adding an emoji of a woman shrugging her shoulders beneath the statement.
The “Confident” singer suffered a near-fatal drug overdose in July 2018. The health scare happened one month after she released the track “Sober,” where she confirmed her relapse following six years of sobriety.
Lovato tweeted about her interest in sharing details about her overdose in December 2018. “If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF,” she wrote. “Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.”
She also added that, “someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.”
The Disney alum’s album update comes on the heels of her posting a picture to her Instagram profile of her recording music in a studio. Lovato shared a selfie with headphones on as she posed behind a microphone. She captioned the post: “Making magic.”
