Recent Favorite Leading Actress ALMA award-winner Demi Lovato revealed a secret to Jimmy Fallon on Late Night: she doesn’t speak Spanish, despite the fact that she performed “Skyscraper” at the Latino-centric awards gig. “I decided to sing the song half-English, half-Spanish, but my brain would not memorize it,” Lovato told Fallon while promoting just-released album Unbroken. “So the day before I was like, I might need a teleprompter. While I’m like gliding through fog in a tight red dress, I’m reading a teleprompter, trying to look graceful, praying to God I don’t fall…” Watch the revelation unfold below. The singer-actress also confessed that she’s “totally listening to rap music now,” and that she is obsessed with Nicki Minaj.

And while she might not be fluent in Spanish, at least Demi understands Auto Tune — she said that she was “so excited” to cover Lil Wayne’s “How To Love” at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom over the weekend.
