Demi Lovato




Demetria Devonne “Demi” Lovato (born 20 August 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. After making her debut as a child actress in Barney & Friends, Lovato rose to prominence in 2008 when she starred in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and signed a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Her debut album, Don’t Forget (2008), debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200. In 2009, Lovato received her own television series, Sonny with a Chance. The following album, Here We Go Again, debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, while its title track became her first single to reach the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at fifteen. Both albums have been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Musically, Lovato is considered a pop, pop rock, and R&B artist. Lovato has received a number of accolades, including an MTV Video Music Award, 13 Teen Choice Awards, five People’s Choice Awards, an ALMA Award, and a Billboard Touring Award and a Grammy Award nomination. In 2013, Maxim ranked her 26th on its Hot 100 list and Billboard ranked her second on its Social 50 Artists of the Year list. Outside the entertainment industry, Lovato is involved with several social and environmental causes. In May 2013, she was cited for her dedication as a mentor to teens and young adults with mental health challenges at a National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day hosted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in Washington, D.C.

She has also become an advocate for the LGBT community. In 2014, she was announced as the Grand Marshal for LA Pride week, and that same year she became the face for Human Rights Campaign’s Americans for Marriage Equality Campaign. In April 2016, Lovato was honored with the GLAAD Vanguard Award for making a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBT people.

Lovato’s fifth album, Confident, was released on 16 October 2015, and received generally positive reviews from music critics. The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 98,000 copies. During the album’s production, Lovato commented: “I’ve already started recording for my new album, and I have plans to record during the tour. The sound just evolves into everything that I’ve been and everything that I want to become.” She further stated, “I’ve never been so sure of myself as an artist when it comes down to confidence, but not only personal things, but exactly what I want my sound to be and what I know I’m capable of and this album will give me the opportunity to show people what I can really do.” In July 2016, the album was certified gold by the RIAA, and has sold 211,000 copies in the United States.

In May 2015, Billboard revealed Lovato was in the process of starting an “artist-centric” new record label, Safehouse Records, of which she will be co-owner. The label will be a partnership between her, Nick Jonas, and Lovato’s manager Phil McIntyre, and will form part of a new collaborative arrangement with record label Island. Confident was released through the new venture deal. This will be Lovato’s second multi-label venture of her career; she was formerly part of Jonas Records, a UMG/Hollywood/Jonas Brothers partnership, which is now defunct.

Lovato released the lead single from Confident titled “Cool for the Summer” on 1 July 2015. On 18 September 2015, the title track “Confident” was released as the album’s second single. On 17 October 2015, she performed a “Cool for the Summer” and “Confident” medley, as well as “Stone Cold” on Saturday Night Live during the series’ forty-first season. Lovato was also featured on the re-release of “Irresistible”, the fourth single from Fall Out Boy’s sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho. The same month, she signed with the major modeling agency, Wilhelmina Models.

Lovato released the music video for her R&B-infused song “Waitin for You” featuring American rapper Sirah on 22 October 2015. On 26 October 2015, Lovato and Nick Jonas announced that they would tour together on the Future Now Tour. She was honored with the first-ever Rulebreaker Award on 11 December 2015 at the 2015 Billboard Women in Music event. 21 March 2016, “Stone Cold” was serviced as the third and final single from Confident. 1 July 2016, Lovato released a new single titled “Body Say” to promote her tour. 4 October 2016, she announced a hiatus from music and the spotlight, citing that she is “not meant for this business and the media.”
