Demi Lovato is leaving The X Factor, reports People: ‘She plans to spend next year completely focused on her music. She had a great run and a good time,” says the source. But the show’s demanding schedule conflicts with the singer’s plans for 2014.

Demi is about to headline her first arena tour, which kicks off Feb. 9 in Vancouver and will also feature X Factor alums Cher Lloyd, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony. Demi: ‘I think ultimately my main thing is singing. Maybe movies once in a while, if the right role comes along.

I will take the month of January completely off! I want to vacation! I want to watch crime shows on my DVR on my couch.. I need to do some exercising and I don’t really have time to do it. I love horseback riding and never get to do that stuff, but January is my time to do all of that.’

    It won’t be the same without Demi and Simon bickering. :( But I’m happy she’s giving herself an entire month off, I wish I can have that. Can’t wait for more music and acting roles!

    But who believe people though ?

      People Mag is almost always true tho! They get a lot of exclusives. I also think it’s true because they got that quite from her too (about her vacation)

        Maybe but with 1D they have a bad image they are never right when it comes to 1D , I wish her the best of luck

    Noooooooo :(

      same… I hope she doesn’t disappear into irrelevancy! I need her to pick RIGHT back up on music. All her songs now have basically disappeared from the radio and is on its way to irrelevancy bc it was released SO long ago. It’s a shame she didn’t get another single out after heart attack.

      She needs a NEW album with fresh songs tbqh. This one was FULL of hits but I think she missed the opp bc she was so busy with X-Factor

        after heart attack there was made in USA and Neon lights werent those singles um

        • in jesus name i pray amen

          woops, yeah youre right lmfao — neon lights JUST got submitted to the radio, I heard. But Made In The USA didn’t make the cut to Top40.

    Her and Simon were fun to watch, but glad she is taking time off and getting back to something she loves.

  • boystan

    she should focus on her music tbh

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Mixed feelings about this… I want her to continue her music, but at the same time im afraid that she is going to shoot herself into irrelevancy by leaving the show…

      A lot of people like her and she has a strong fan base behind her. I think she will be okay and honestly I think she would be happier if she wasn’t in the spotlight as much.

        as much? i rarely hear about her..

        • in jesus name i pray amen

          mfte… :( but that’s what scares me. X-Factor at least keeps her in the presses constantly tho.

            i think here’s what i think first of all switch labels bc HWR dont give a fuck about promo for demi and then maybe take a break JUST to figure out what kind of music she wants to actually do instead of filling her album with basic pop shit and take time while making music instead of a few months she will s l a y if she does that but most importantly get rid of hollyweird records.
