Grammy-nominated singer Demi Lovato is thrilled to be voicing “iconic character” Smurfette on the big screen, but don’t get your hopes up for any serious acting ventures from her in the future. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight during Wednesday’s press tour of “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” Demi admits to thinking that her tattoos will get in the way of a big screen career.
“I did get bit by the acting bug,” Demi says about the prospect of diving back in. “I think have too many tattoos now. They’d have to cover all my tattoos up and it would take forever.” For now, the singer is happy to have had the chance to work behind a camera and be animated, play with her voice and “just have fun with it.”
Demi, unsurprisingly, slips in a few words about new music and her Grammy nomination, but she’s made her excitement crystal clear since the announcement. “I’m working on new music. I’m in the studio right now,” she confirms. “It’s going really great. I’m just trying to figure out what sound I want to have for the next album.”
