We are so ready for DL6!!!

After a much-needed break away from the music scene, Demi Lovato is finally back and attacking the charts with some killer new tunes.

The pop princess announced her "comeback" in the best way possible with her feature on Cheat Codes' No Promises and the first single, Sorry Not Sorry, from her sixth studio album.

In anticipation of her next LP, we have decided to occupy our restless selves by gathering some facts about the body of work as the wait is slightly unbearable.

So here are 5 facts that Lovato has revealed about her upcoming studio album. 

 

1. The album will consist of more soulful and r&b tones.

 

2. There are currently no collaborations on the album but Demi is hoping to do something with Halsey.

 

3. Demi is nervous about a particular song in the album as she is afraid that the fans will read too much into it lyrically.

 

4. According to Demi, the release date for the album is "VERY SOON".

 

5. Demi will be touring the album sometime next year!

A few months ago, the GRAMMYs paid a tribute to the pop group Bee Gees and it recently aired on national TV in the US.

The tribute show: Stayin' Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees, was kicked off by Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town and Andra Day with a medley of Stayin' Alive, Tragedy, How Deep Is Your Love, and Night Fever.

 

The show was in honour of the 40th anniversary of the Saturday Night Fever Bee Gees soundtrack and it saw many award winning artists come together to perform the Bee Gees' hit songs.

Here are a few of them:

 

Tori Kelly - Tragedy

 
 

DNCE - Night Fever

 
 

Keith Urban - To Love Somebody

 

These were just a few of the many performances on that show. Other artists that took part in this tribute included Panic! at the Disco, Ed Sheeran, Stevie Wonder, and even Barry Gibbs himself!

Barry, the last surviving member of Bee Gees, took to the stage to perform Jive Talkin', You Should Be Dancing, and the finale together with the rest of the ensemble for Stayin' Alive.

I think this tribute was a huge success just by the fact that 20th century and 21st century artists come together to celebrate timeless music. It's absolutely wonderful to witness because it's a reminder that despite the time changes and evolution of people's lives, music will always be a common connection that everyone shares, and that old music is still Stayin' Alive to remind us of the roots of music and its olden culture.

Here's the full list of artists and performances who were a part of this tribute:

Medley: Stayin’ Alive, Tragedy, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever – Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town, Andra Day
To Love Somebody – Keith Urban
Massachusetts – Ed Sheeran
Lonely Days – Panic! At the Disco
Tragedy – Tori Kelly
How Can You Mend A Broken Heart – John Legend & Stevie Wonder
Islands In The Stream – Kelsea Ballerini & Thomas Rhett
Immortality – Celine Dion
Night Fever – DNCE
If I Can’t Have You – Demi Lovato
More Than A Woman – Jason Derulo & Tavares
How Deep Is Your Love – Little Big Town
Love So Right – Andra Day
I Just Want To Be Your Everything – Nick Jonas
Too Much Heaven – Pentatonix
Emotion – Katherine McPhee
Jive Talkin’ – Barry Gibb
You Should Be Dancing – Barry Gibb
Stayin’ Alive – Barry Gibb & Ensemble

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is not only well known for his Lip Sync Battles and Wheel of Musical Impressions, he is also famous for his segment, "EW!"

"EW!" is a mini series which stars him and a famous young celebrity (female or male) dressing up as two stereotypical teenage girls and doing teenager things like having dance parties and talking about boys. Jimmy has teamed up with artists and actors like Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and even will.i.am for hilarious episodes.

Last week, former Disney actress and singer Demi Lovato joined Jimmy (whose character's name is Sara - withouth the 'h' because 'h's are EW!), for a 5 minute episode of "EW!" In this episode, Demi's character, Emily, and Sara took emoji selfies and practiced kissing boys with "crush cushions," which were basically cushions with the faces of Sara's crushes printed on them.

"EW!" is actually one of my favourite video series to watch because it's just plain funny and cute, so check out Demi's episode of "EW!" here:

Do you remember her?

Or her?

Maybe her?

If you said yes to all 3 of them, you are in for a treat! Ashley Tisdale took to her Snapchat (ashleymtisdale) to reveal that they are working together on a track titled Trophy Boy. The song will be part of the soundtrack from their upcoming animated movie Charming. Besides providing the vocals for the track, Ashley, Avril and Demi will also be playing Cinderella, Snow White and Lenore respectively. The soundtrack and film will also feature fellow artists like Sia and Steve Aoki.

 

Even though there are no details on the song yet (or even the release date), we can tell it will definitely be amazing. Can’t wait!

Huge congratulations to Nathan Hartono for making it so far in Sing! China and doing us proud!  


 

1.     A Great Week For Fifth Harmony

The past week has been great for the girls of Fifth Harmony; they achieved two major recognitions for their music and work. First of all, the girls’ video for Work From Home has garnered over 1 BILLION views on Vevo. The video was released in February this year, and in just 8 months, they have raked up over 1 BILLION views. This is not their first video to surpass the remarkable milestone; the video for Worth It has also surpassed this mark.

Secondly, Fifth Harmony has topped Billboard’s 21 Under 21 2016: Music's Hottest Young Stars chart. The quintet has had an incredible year with the release of their hugely successful second album, 7/27, and then embarking on their album tour. Following closely behind is Shawn Mendes in second place and Desiigner in third.

 

2.     #SoundsOverFeelsOver

You might have seen this hashtag trending on Twitter over the past couple of days; it marked the end of 5 Seconds of Summer’s 101-show tour. Remember when the boys were in Asia earlier this year? That’s right, they have been on tour all this while and just completed their worldwide tour. The boys ended off the nine-month tour with two shows in their hometown, Sydney. There could not be a place more apt than where they started their journey from.

Tell us what is your favourite memory for the Sounds Live Feels Live tour? 

 

3.     GROW UP OLLY MURS!!

No, it is not because Olly Murs made the headlines for infamous reasons. Olly Murs announced his new single would be entitled Grow Up and got the help of his celebrity friends to record a short video telling him to grow up.

 

 

We get it; Olly Murs needs to GROW UP!

 

4.     Demi Lovato Is Going On Sabbatical

“Sabbatical, Hiatus, Break” Few of the words that fandoms fear of hearing, Demi Lovato has announced her plans to take a break from music and the spotlight.

This came after the release of her Glamour interview that left her in a rather odd position. The interview caught the attention of the media when her words got taken out of context and made her look bad. Prior to her announcement, the Body Say singer did an impromptu Twitter Q&A, where she confessed that she would not be releasing new music any time soon and has plans to do charity work while on hiatus. Feeling jaded? Here are ways to cope with the news

By now, most of us would've heard about Demi Lovato's announcement to take a break from music next year.

Although the songstress have said in a reply on Twitter that she does not know when she's coming back, it's hard to imagine how life would be like without any upcoming new music, tours or even TV appearances from her. 

If you are feeling as devastated as us, this list on five ways to cope with the news may come helpful to you:

 

1) Face your feelings

Are you sad? We're sad too. 

 

2) Let your emotions be expressed

There's nothing worse than keeping it all on the inside!

 

3) Talk to someone about your feelings

The listening ears of Spin or Bin Music are only a tweet away if you ever need shoulder to cry on!

 

4) Get out of the house

Why not meet up with your BFFs and go to one of these concerts together?

 

5) Keep calm and carry on supporting Demi

If there's anything to celebrate about today, it is that Demi is still alive and kicking!

Yes, although the rest of this slightly-exaggerated post may have made it seem like Demi has passed on, she's still breathing! We can also draw comfort from the fact that she didn't state exactly how long her break would be... it might even only last for a month (fingers crossed).

Until Demi is ready to make music again, the best thing us Lovatics can do is to continue supporting her (including her decision to take the well-deserved break) and let her know that we're all Waitin for You!

Whether you like Demi Lovato or not, you gotta admit that she's pretty damn gungho.

First of all, she daringly went undercover as a Lyft driver to pick up passengers... and you know what they say, "Life is a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get."

Not only Demi casually raised up the fact that she was touring with her ex-boyfriend's brother (JOE JONAS!), she also very, very casually agreed with one not-so-superfan of hers, that Selena Gomez was way better than her.

The results are hilarious once Demi took off her shades (how do you not recognize that signature apple chin?!):

+100 points to Demi for being so classy and graceful about it.

 

Another +100 points to Demi springing a surprise on her superfan! Demi even pulled a fast one on her, which means reliving all the embarrassing Camp Rock songs. 

Well, I wouldn't wanna spoil too much, so you're gonna have to watch to find out more!

Demi Lovato is always making the headlines - whether it's for getting into another social media beef or releasing a new hit song, you have to admit she's pretty badass in a way.

But what exactly are some of her more underrated and unknown achievements on her list?

We dig them out for you Lovatics:

 

5. Demi's Cool For The Summer Single Outsold EVERY Combined Single Released By Halsey

 

4. Demi Is The Only Ex-Disney Act To Have 3 Solo Top Tens On Pop Radio From One Album

 

3. Demi Has TWICE The Amount Of Top Tens Hits In The UK Compared To Selena Gomez

 

2. Demi's Let It Go Video Has More Views Than EVERY Selena Gomez Video

 

1. Demi Lovato's Stone Cold Failed To Chart On The Billboard Hot 100

Not all failures remain failures. We still love you Demi!

Camp Rock was THE movie for millennials, alongside the massive Disney Channel original movie, High School Musical.

Joe Jonas was fresh off the success of the Jonas Brothers boy band, whose biggest hit then was the irresistible S.O.S.

Released in the summer of 2007, nearly a decade ago, it served as the 3rd single off their major label self-titled debut album and introduced the world to the (then) boys.

Demi Lovato had no prior experience in showbiz, save it for a short stint on Barney & Friends with then-bff Selena Gomez!

Camp Rock was Demi’s first stint on Disney and was filmed alongside her biggest role to date as Alison "Sonny" Munroe in Sonny With A Chance!

Of course the hit single off Camp Rock was none other than This Is Me, a duet between Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato.

Who would have thought it would be performed nine years later at a Nick Jonas x Demi Lovato concert?

What an excellent throwback for two artists who have matured so much since the early Disney days. Joe Jonas with his excellent band DNCE, and Demi Lovato with one of the biggest voices in music today.

Take time off this week to remember the good old Disney days and perhaps watch Camp Rock in full with a friend or two!

3 Cringe-Worthy Demi Lovato Moments

There is no doubt that Demi Lovato is nothing short of lovely and of course, a source of inspiration to her avid lovatics. But let’s just say we’ve been seeing a lot of cringe-worthy moments on social media that involved the former Disney star.

You can either find these moments adorable or just purely provoking second-hand embarrassment. But either way, it’ll give you a good laugh.

 

1.     When she confidently told an interviewer that her "favorite dish" was a mug

 

 

2.     When she thought students were learning about “jeans” in school, hence mistaking “genes” as hand-me-down clothing

 

 

3.     When she decided to quit social media

 

…only to return after one day

 

Demi might be gifted with great vocals, but she sure does get caught up in a daze when it involves spontaneous thinking… or keeping her word. One thing’s for sure though, she’s just being true to herself.
