Demi Lovato ‘More Radio Friendly’ Music

Demi told MTV: ‘I’m now just taking that next step and learning how to make my music more radio-friendly but also stay very artistic, and for me that’s R&B. I can put my vocal stylings on songs that are R&B and it showcases my vocals more than just singing really loud on a rock song.

It’s really nice to embrace it. I grew up singing R&B and then I grew up listening to rock, so it was kind of weird. But I’m kind of learning how to incorporate the two and I’m having a good time with it.’

On inspirations Keri Hilson and Rihanna: ‘It’s something I want to focus on and really pour myself into it. I don’t want to rush it out. I definitely feel like I’m proud of everything I put out there.‘ Choosing outfits for the tour: ‘I had a rack that filled out an entire warehouse. I just went through it and it took me like six, seven hours to fit all the outfits for the tour. It was fun!

This is for one of the ‘Camp Rock’ looks that I sing the duet ['Wouldn't Change a Thing' with Joe Jonas] in, and here are the crazy shoes also. I mean they’re not crazy like Lady Gaga, but for me they are. I’ve never performed in stilettos, so we’ll see how this goes.

I feel like it’s more Rihanna than Lady Gaga. I’m a huge Rihanna fan and I also love spikes and anything leather. And I have this crazy jewelry. Actually this one [ring] is pretty crazy [with all its spikes], and the bracelets have twice as many spikes. Overall, I guess you can say there’s a ton of spikes in my wardrobe.’

    Why is she forever trying to be like someone else? Yesterday it was Kim K, today it’s Rihanna.

    Find your own identity and be your own person. She’s so horrible and unaware.

    =======================================

    THIS THIS THIS!
    I used to really like Demi but now I dunno anymore. She’s working out to be more “fit” and have a “better” body. She changed her skin, her teeth, her hair, her style… she’s even making that stupid “duckface”.
    The only thing that was true to me was her music and she’s changing that too.

    I’m not saying she can’t change it up or mature, but it’s getting ridiculous now.

  • EASYMAC.

    i always thought her voice sounded better with r&b vibes. now rihanna isn’t exactly the definition of r&b but whatever. her throwback stuff i’ve always liked more than the newer. stay with your roots i say.

  • Jessx7x

    she can pull it off..i cant wait to hear her new sound

    demi is just fake. tryna be like RiRi now? pshh.. its cause her music has neever played on the radio so now she was to go all R&B/Pop to join in with everyone else. tryna pull a miley cyrus and change her sound.

    Demi = FAKE!

    Miley and Selena all the wayyy !!! <3

    Radio-friendly music? Wow Demi, it’s not about that.

    I really don’t want some R&B crap from her. She should just stick to what she knows instead of trying to change herself.

  • heartinvasion?

    what happened to rock?
    i used to be such a demi fan.
    she’s such a sellout now, sorry.
    —–
    IA. I mean radio friendly, LOL.
    Yeah because your last 2 albums barely sold shit and radio don’t give you airplay besides Radio Disney.
    But maybe if she had ‘Radio Friendly’ music than people would know about her and buy her album.

  • EASYMAC.

    does it count as changing, if that’s what you use to do anyway? im thinking not so much.

  • heartinvasion?

    Demi should play the music she WANTS to play. Just because those songs don’t play on mainstream radios doesn’t mean no one will know about it and not buy it ^_^
    Ugh, she’s only trying to make everyone else happy than herself and fit Hollywood standards.

  • iSarcasticING

    hate to say it but thats the way I see it too
    I love her with her guitar.
    I hate it when she sings poppy songs
    I dunno maybe Ill like her new stuff… maybe I wont.
    I just hope its not a drastic change. Cuz change can be good. But she shouldn’t lose herself.

    da reason demi is tryin to be radio friendly is because of the unloyal fans who choose to buy untalented mainstream bimbos albums other than hers, and u guys always moan and say she never on da radio didnt go gold yadayadayada!!! Stop bitchen and go out and buy Dont Forget and HWGA bitches

    It’s probably about album sales for Demi otherwise she wouldn’t change her whole style. Otherwise she wouldn’t want to be “radio friendly”. And she might be famous in Brazil/South America, but she’s not really famous in Europe. Not like Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.

  • Hehe!

    There is no such thing as a sell-out. It’s called change. Change that you people seem to have a problem with. If the people in the media change at some point it their lives, that does not make them a “sell-out”, it means they’re growing and finding who THEY are. It’s wrong to be mad at them for not always being that person you looked up to at one point. And don’t say she’s gonna gain unloyal fans, and lose true ones, ’cause if you’re a TRUE fan, you won’t have an issue to begin with. AND if you really have an issue with someone you DO NOT know changing, then go to fucking therapy with that shit. You control freak. Ugh!
    BTW: Love you Demi, you looked FOINE at the concert. I only went for you.

    Do you blame the girl? I bet you Disney’s been on her ass because she’s just NOT selling. Besides, R&B really showcases her voice and if people could finally hear all the talent she has than maybe they’d have a lot more respect for her.
    It’s honestly a smart move and I don’t see why anyone else is even complaining?
    She made two pop rock albums that weren’t successful like her peers on Disney.
    If you were a true fan you’d be happy that she’s trying to take this route so she can finally find some success.

    Oh stop it you guys! She is just trying to find her own style! Rock wasn’t the way to go for her, and she wants to try something new!

    You guys really need to calm down. I agree, she has changed a lot but thats part of the whole disney process! Miley went through it, and now its her turn. I guess she’s just trying to “find herself”. And IMO, her voice fits R&B better then it does rock bcuz she doesnt have to scream to reach the notes. Anywhoo, im excited to hear what her album will sound like.

    I hate Selena’s music… heck, I hate Selena in general. She has this picture-perfect image, and it’s just so damn fake… plus, Selena couldn’t sing if her life depended on it.

    Dear Demi,

    I used to love you when you were that sweet rocker texan girl back in 2008. Right now you are annoying and fake. I don’t hate you, but i don’t like you like I used to.

    Love, Martha

  • Anonymous

    This was just a delicate way of her saying “I’m selling out.”

  • Yasmine

    All you haters need to shut up. Demi has always been singing more R&P and soulful music
    like Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson. Check out these videos of her singing before she even got famous for her “rock”.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Y0skpPNXB0
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdMBYaMTZXM
    Definitely not rock at all. And it sounds amazing.

    Everyone changes up there music styles throughout their career, that’s how people stay relevant and figure out what works best for them. Look at Christina Aguilera, her first album was so cookie cuter pop, and when she got more creative control she took it in the direction of her stripped album (more hip hop & pop, yet still soulful), and when she switched it up with back to basics and it was soulful and still amazing. Artists are known for VARIETY!

    Look at Paramore, they have amazing music and I have a fan. But when was Hayley William been in the airwaves like she was/is with Airplanes? I don’t ever recall her song people played ever 5 minutes on every radio station. Does that make Hayley a sellout because she got on an R&B and Rap track? No that makes her an artist collaborating with other artists.
