Demi Lovato is just like you and I. (Only rich, famous and super talented). The “Really Don’t Care” diva spotted some of her idols at recent events and couldn’t help taking some pics for her Instagram account. Because, who wouldn’t? “This guy is unbelievably sweet and incredibly talented… he told me he had been listening to Unbroken all day the day he found out about all 4 Grammy nods,” she wrote of her encounter with Sam Smith.
The 22-year-old also posted a happy snap with Gwen Stefani, Pharrell and Charli XCX at Jingle Ball, where also performed a surprise duet with old friend Nick Jonas. That pic is pretty hard to beat — ok, it wins — but Demi also hung out with Jessie J, she’s still raving about their impromptu rendition of “Bang Bang”, and got a little sappy about boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. “My love…. Always supporting me,” she wrote. See all the pics up top. More »
Last month, Nick Jonas surprised with his titanic duet with Demi Lovato. By then, Jonas had released two slick R&B ballads (“Chains,” “Jealous”) off his sophomore self-titled album, to show he can handle the spotlight on his own. He had also dropped his pants for a magazine appropriately titled Flaunt. Still, “Avalanche” showed that for these two stars, their Disney Channel days are a distant memory.
As of late, Lovato has been popping up here and there. She re-released 2013′s Demi this past week. She joined Jessie J on stage just a few days ago, and she appears in recent efforts by Olly Murs (“Up”) and The Vamps (“Somebody to You”). So when Jonas brought out Lovato at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball to perform “Avalanche,” spectators freaked out. It’s tough to blame them, of course.
Watch Demi Lovato join Nick Jonas on stage to perform “Avalanche” at Jingle Ball up top.
“Bang Bang” is undoubtedly one of the biggest songs of 2014, all thanks to the combined powerhouse chops (and killer rap skills!) of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Girl power all around — but what happens when you throw a different talented diva into the mix? As it turns out…pure magic!
Last night, during the 99.7 Triple Ho Show in San Jose, Jessie was effortlessly crooning the hit tune when none other than “Neon Lights” starlet Demi Lovato came strutting out on stage to supply the vocals during Ariana’s verse. And, even though you might not be able to hear it over all the intense shrieking from the crowd, she utterly nailed it. Those incredible pipes! The two had an absolute blast on stage, dancing together during Nicki’s verse, and then bringing it all home with powerful riffs and ad-libs. Clearly, these two talented pop princesses need to hit the recording studio together ASAP.

Meghan Trainor‘s breezy body acceptance anthem “All About That Bass” continues to bop along on top of the Billboard Hot 100 at the moment, but a recent comment during an interview just landed her in hot water with some critics…including Demi Lovato.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the singer-songwriter spoke about growing up as “a chubby girl” in school and being rejected by a crush because of her weight. She went on to clarify that she never battled an eating disorder — but it’s the way that she dismissed the idea that has since raised a few eyebrows.
“I wasn’t strong enough to have an eating disorder…I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that’s not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, ‘Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, immediately,” she said to ET.
The idea of being “strong enough” to maintain an eating disorder didn’t sit well with some, including Demi, who has been quite vocal about her own struggle with body issues over the years. And, in a series of tweets written earlier this afternoon, she responded: “Having an eating disorder doesn’t show ‘strength,’” she began, taking the opportunity to educate regarding the reality of mental illness.

Nick Jonas has been grabbing our attention for several months now, ever since he dropped “Chains” and “Jealous,” a pair or impeccable pop singles from his upcoming self-titled album, and dropped his pants for Flaunt magazine. As for Demi Lovato, well — she might just be the coolest girl in pop.
So consider us more than excited that Nick has followed in older brother Joe Jonas‘ footsteps by pairing up with Demi for a duet. “Avalanche” finds the two taking the parts of lovers in an emotional freefall, detailing the aftermath of their breakup. Ballads and big-name collaborations can sometimes be a snooze, but this track a prime example of how you go about making a perfect duet. Take a listen after the jump! More »
Here’s some great news to brighten your Monday. Demi Lovato has already started work on her fifth studio album! “She’s finishing up right now on the last leg of her touring for this year,” her manager told Billboard. “Then the plan is for her to go back into the studio and start the next creative process. She’s already done some songs, but certainly the majority of it will kick off next year.”
I guess this kills those rumors that the pop diva is planning to re-release her current LP with a couple of high-profile duets. Demi has been a particularly successful era for the 22-year-old. It produced three top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 (“Heart Attack”, “Neon Lights” and Cher Lloyd collaboration “Really Don’t Care”) and proved popular around the globe — charting in most major European markets.
“We’re really excited,” Disney Music Group present Ken Bunt told the music bible. “We’ve got a new album coming from her next year. We’re not talking about release dates yet. And she’s going to continue her world tour throughout next year.” It will be interesting to see how Demi’s next era fares in comparison to former Disney divas Selena Gomez and Zendaya, who both have new music due in 2015.
