Everyone and their brother—quite literally in the case of Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas and Nick Jonas—made sure Elvis felt the love.

Demi Lovato is always outspoken. Whether she’s discussing the President’s trans troop ban or the Manchester bombing, Demi’s rarely shy about saying what’s on her mind. She’s also been an award-winning mental health advocate, and, in a new interview with Elvis Duran, she opened up about why she’s so vocal when it comes to that subject.
“I think it’s important to speak up about the things you believe in,” Demi said. “I just happen to be in a position where more people will hear my voice than they would have ten, 15 years ago. I use my voice to do more than just sing, and I use it to speak up about mental health because that’s something I’m very passionate about.”
In a mind-numbing display of insensitive language, Elvis then asked Demi what kind of labels people have put on her that make her “go insane” and whether or not she’d like to ditch them.
“I think when people refer to me as being bipolar–it’s something that is true, I am bipolar–but I don’t like people to use it as a label,” Demi said. “It’s something that I have, it’s not who I am. ‘Demi Lovato: activist’ is something I would really be proud of.”

Miley Cyrus sat down with Elvis Duran for the debut episode of “Label Defiers” released early Wednesday morning. The almost 30-minute interview featured the singer revealing her one fear when it comes to Noah Cyrus’ musical career as well as her past life as a tiny terror to her mother.
Now that Noah has decided music is her chosen career, older sister Miley has a few concerns about what Noah’s future could entail. “When you’re in this industry, adults treat kids like adults,” she told Elvis. Growing up in the limelight and being judged for normal teen behavior, Miley learned the hard way about dealing with public scrutiny:
“I think it makes you jaded, it makes you guarded, and I don’t ever want her to get like that. Or your style or the way that you think because you want to please people.”
Selena Gomez appeared on the Elvis Duran Show Monday morning and talked about “Bad Liar” as well as her upcoming single. She told Elvis that she is trying to do something different with each song, so the new single won’t be like “Bad Liar.” The singer also spoke about her Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” and body image.
“If anyone told me to go on a diet, I don’t think they would be working with me anymore,” the singer said without flinching.

Niall Horan showed up to the Elvis Duran Show Tuesday morning to promote his latest single, “Slow Hands.” In his interview, he also shared how he and Harry Styles used to relax while on tour. Apparently, the two like to partake in golf. That’s no surprise, as Niall spends virtually all of his free time teeing off on the green.
“We’d be touring and there’d be thousands and thousands of people outside the hotel, so me and Harry [Styles] used to just go and play golf,” he said. “And obviously, people don’t want to be walking around a golf course with ya!”
Check out some videos of Niall’s interview and performance below.

Although she wrote a long, overdrawn backstory to her single “I Have Questions,” Camila Cabello elaborated on the song’s meaning to Elvis Duran. The singer performed a snippet of the track at the Billboard Awards on Sunday night and she was up early Monday morning to chat with the radio host.
During the interview, Camila confirmed that her first solo album, “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving,” will officially be out in September although an actual date has yet to be announced. “I was going through a tough time emotionally,” Camila said about her state of mind writing the album that helped her find the light again.
Released before her BBMAs performance, “I Have Questions” is a song that Camila says is her way of talking face-to-face to the person who inspired it in the first place. “I feel like I went through a situation where, and I feel like a lot of people have, you’re in this relationship or friendship whatever it may be and you’re just kind of left with all of these questions about why you know things went wrong,” Camila explained.
Could this track be about her former Fifth Harmony bandmates?
