LIVE with Kelly & Michael under! Photos HERE! On telling girls not to wear make-up: 'If I could tell myself a couple years ago like, 'Hey you don't need that much make-up, take it off'.. I'd love to go back in time and just not wear that much. So I wanted to show girls like, hey, you don't have to do that to your face.'
On her new record: 'I did do one collaboration, I did a song with Cher Lloyd.. it's just a girl-anthem, it has a lot of attitude, a lot of sass. I just thought she'd be perfect on it. All the other songs are by myself; I co-wrote with a lot of people. Some of the songs are very catchy pop songs that will get stuck in your head... and there's other songs that are a lot heavier than some of the other things I've released in the past.'
On her past: 'When I was younger, I didn't really treat people that great. I was growing up, I had hormones, and I was overworked, and in the midst of a ton of other issues. And.. I wasn't nice to people.. It's something that I had to learn the hard way. I didn't have many people around me at the time telling me 'Hey, you're being a little brat.' And now, I do, so if I'm getting grumpy, I have people around me that'll say 'straighten up, because you're better than that.''
'Heart Attack' director Chris Applebaum told MTV that Demi did something that he's only seen Celine Dion do before her: sing live: 'I do also want to note that in 20 years of directing music videos, I have seen every single artist lip-sync to their video with the exception of two people. One was Celine Dion, who said, 'If you don't do that, you sing so that people can see your throat move and people can feel the emotion.' And two, it was Demi Lovato. Demi is the real deal. People felt it when they were around her.
Her performance is very interesting. I've worked with some of the biggest artists in the world, multiple times, and Demi is a really unique performer. She's extremely emotional. She's extremely complicated, wonderful, amazing, beautiful girl with a huge heart and conflicts within herself that she's dealing with very openly. And I feel like her performances are the visual equivalent of taking all of that, throwing it into a can of soda and shaking it up so that when you pull the top everything kind of explodes.
