Demi Lovato, Pop Princess of 2013 contender, has released a tease of a teaser — nine seconds, to be exact — for her “Heart Attack” video. In the clip, while her overall appearance is neat, she fans out her hands to reveal that her palms have been painted black. Given her Demi album cover, it appears that she’s creating variations of a glittery yet grimy theme.
When we caught up with “Heart Attack” songwriter Nikki Williams, she revealed interpersonal woes to be the song’s main inspiration. “The Halloween before last — I almost didn’t make it, because I wasn’t feeling so great from the night before, but I put on my tiara and went to the session,” she said. “At the time I was going through some relationship stuff, and I was just so depressed, so when I got into the session I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gonna pour it all out there, and get it off my chest.’”
Lovato’s “Heart Attack” video drops April 9. For now, watch the video teaser up top, then revisit her recent Jimmy Kimmel interview and performance.
