Demi Lovato Bans Drugs from Her Tour

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Pop,

Demi LovatoDemi Lovato has banned anyone from using drugs or alcohol from her upcoming Neon Lights tour.

The "Heart Attack" hitmaker wants everyone involved in her tour to stay clean following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died in his New York City apartment over the weekend after experiencing a relapse, according to RadarOnline.com.

The 21-year-old singer - who has battled and overcome cocaine addiction in the past - believes her shows should be about putting on the best performance possible for her fans instead of a time for wild partying. "Everyone on the team is required to stay clean and focused. It's not about trying to party. It's about putting on the best show and everyone needs to be in tip top shape. That's how it should be for every tour," she said recently.

Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus

Demi Lovato thinks Miley Cyrus' voice is overshadowed by her controversial behavior.

The X Factor judge thinks 20-year-old Miley is a genuine talent but people only focus on her twerking. She offered support for her fellow former Disney star and told Katie Couric on her talk show, "I think she knows what she's doing. A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that's totally fine and that's great, but I think that she has such an incredible voice that's overshadowed by some of the things she's doing... You know it's her journey, she's having fun, she's being who she is and will always love her."

Demi Lovato: Album Helped Rrid My Demons

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Pop, New Releases,

Demi LovatoDemi Lovato's new album helped get rid of her demons.

The "Heart Attack" singer found writing her fourth record, Warrior, very "therapeutic" and healing after spending time in rehab for an eating disorder and self-harm issues in 2010.

"My life has changed so much. I am vulnerable and honest in this record, the way I've always wanted to be. I was ready to come out of the darkness. Writing this album was therapeutic, it helped me get rid of my demons. I am a warrior now - I've been through so much in the past years, it was hard to find the courage to get out of it and write about it, I was afraid no one would understand my message."

The 20-year-old star admits being catapulted to fame on the Disney channel in her teens left her confused as to which direction to go in, and she fell prey to "temptations." Demi said, "I spent so much time trying to figure out what the right thing to do was, that I got distracted along the way by fun and temptations and that's why I ended up in rehab at 18."

Demi Lovato Wants Emotional Music

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Upcoming Releases, Pop,

Demi LovatoDemi Lovato wants to bring more "emotion" to music. The "Skyscraper" hitmaker - who underwent a three-month stint in rehab in 2010 to receive help for self harm, bipolar disorder and an eating disorder - has learned to "connect" with her audience by being truthful about herself and admires the work of Adele and Taylor Swift, who make catchy, honest songs.

"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. I love the way that Adele has carved out a path for a singer that's very emotional, but I also love how Taylor Swift can do the same thing--she puts a lot into her songs yet they're still very catchy."
