Demi Lovato on X-Factor return: 'There was some hesitation only because I got so stressed out last year for the live shows because I am such a perfectionist and a control freak. I didn't want to lose because I'm that girl that's so competitive with people,
And I didn't want to lose to Simon especially it being my first year on the X Factor. Of course, I was out right away. I want to see new talent and I want to be a part of that journey again. I went back to TV, and it was worth it..
I also did it because not only was it going to help me get through some mental things and some fears, but it also held me accountable to still be that light in other people's eyes and an inspiration to people.'
Do YOU think Hilary Duff is the new judge?

Demi's FULL Live From MTV interview! 'Of course I was bummed because I loved working with Britney and L.A. is so much fun to sit next to. It's going to be really interesting to see who ends up being next to [Simon and I at the judges' table], but for right now it's kind of cool that that it's just me and him here today.
I tried to control so much of it [last season]. I wanted my contestants to wear this and do this. ..I needed to relax and just let them be themselves and just have fun. This year, instead of looking for that overall pop-star package, I'm going to try a different approach and just see if I can find somebody that would do great in the industry but also just have the most incredible voice. That's what I'm really looking for.
I'm so excited for people to hear the heavy, emotional songs that showcase my artistry [and] my vocal abilities. Also, I'm just excited for people to hear the really catchy pop songs that are going to get stuck in your head and drive you crazy. I love torturing you with that.'

Demi told Ryan Seacrest she decided to name her fourth studio album Demi because she’s 'never had a self titled album.. I feel like this album represents me the best that any album has ever represented me. I’m starting a new chapter and a new world in my career coming out in radio songs and more of the mainstream world and some people are hearing me for the first time and I want them to see this is who I am and this is my music and this is what I’m all about.
In 'Warrior', I wrote it about something that I had never really talked about before and I’m pretty open with my story but the lyrics kind of say it all it in that song. It was really emotional and hard for me to write that song because I was so vulnerable and was so raw with the lyrics. WAL-MART soundcheck under!
Thx Ariana @camilasgurl! Has Simon has reached out to Demi for ideas on the next season of X-Factor? 'Yes! He has! I'll like text him and be like 'I have a crazy idea!' And he's like 'Who? Talk to me!' And I'll like call him or whatever and we'll talk. I'm not letting you know any of them. You'll find out soon enough. We have to make a decision soon.
Simon is like 'Anything is possible.' Last year we had Britney Spears. That was incredible. What I learned from Britney is that you don't have to change. Her family, we laughed several times, 'cause our families are so similar. Our moms are super close now. And our dads are really similar.
She has this southern down-to-earth family. And she's still a southern down-to-earth girl. I already knew that you don't have to change in the industry, but even at her level of success being the icon that she is, it was really refreshing.
The thing that I learned in my first season of the 'X Factor' was, I mean I already knew I'm a bit of a control freak but I think I had this idea, this vision of what I wanted as what my ideal winner of the competition and with this time I'm going to keep an open mind and have fun. And not be so focused on the competition aspect of it. I think I'm just going to relax and have fun.'

At Wango Tango Joe supposedly said that he's 'proud' of Demi.

Demi on Ariana Grande: Any up-and-coming artists who have impressed you with their vocal ability? 'Ariana Grande. She has vocals that are just unbelievable, and I have so much respect for her because she is a true singer. She's someone that I feel like is going to have a long career because of her voice, and I think she's going to be a huge name. She's gonna be great.'
