Demi Lovato Teams Up with G-Eazy on New Single “Breakdown”

Demi Lovato is breaking down their personal demons…

The 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer, songwriter, and actor has joined voices with G-Eazy to release the new single “Breakdown,” as well as the track’s official music video.

Demi Lovato

The Daniel CZ-directed music video first captures G-Eazy and Lovato coming face-to-face with the headlines they’ve made over the years, from Lovato’s 2018 heroin overdose to G-Eazy’s 2018 arrest on charges of assault, drug possession and resisting arrest at a Swedish club, which appear on the mirrors in front of the artists.

G-Eazy made headlines this week after he was arrested and charged Monday for allegedly assaulting two men outside of a New York hotel but was later released.

The “No Limit” MC continues watching his headlines play out on the television in his disheveled room, standing around in disarray while somberly rapping, “Been fighting my demons, but they ain’t fighting fair/ But I keep saying that ‘Everything’s alright, I swear’/ All alone in a dark space, ain’t no light in there/ What’s f—ed up is I might actually like it there.”

Meanwhile, the Dancing With the Devil singer pleads in the raw chorus, “I’m in the middle of a breakdown, baby I need you/ I need you/ Oh, I’m in the middle of a storm now, baby/ I need you/ I need you to come over, tell me this’ll be over,” while the headlines specific to them taunt Lovato all over the walls in the next room.

But Lovato and G-Eazy prove they can endure their personal storms together.

The Grammy-nominated pop star hinted “big things coming” with G-Eazy when they posted a picture of the two artists while on set of the “Breakdown” music video back in August.

“Breakdown” will be featured on the Bay Area rapper’s upcoming album, These Things Happen Too, which is due on September 24 via BPG/RVG/RCA Records. It will serve as the sequel to his 2014 album These Things Happen, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

Peacock Releases Trailer for Demi Lovato’s Docuseries “Unidentified With Demi Lovato”

Demi Lovato is on a mission to find extraterrestrial life…

Following the 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer, songwriter and actor’s surreal Joshua Tree trip when they saw something strange in the sky, Lovato is embarking on an extra-journey journey to find out more.

Demi Lovato

“I had this crazy experience that happened to me in Joshua Tree,” the singer recalls in the official trailer for their new Peacock series Unidentified With Demi Lovato, which was released on Thursday (September 9). “It was this bright light, kind of moved in, like, these weird ways that a plane wouldn’t move. My goal is to find out what really happened.”

The self-proclaimed “UFO experiencer” will be joined by their best friend Matthew Scott Montgomery and sister Dallas Lovato, both of whom appeared in the four-part YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, which opened SXSW this year, to “investigate the unexplained and the unidentified,” Lovato said in the video. The gasp-worthy, shocking trailer even features an unidentified voice saying “hello” to the singer when prompted by experts.

Lovato’s new four-part limited unscripted series will begin streaming on Peacock on September 30.

 

Unidentified With Demi Lovato is executive produced by Lovato, their manager Scooter Braun, Scott Manson, Allison Kaye, JD Roth, Adam Greener, Sara Hansemann and Andrew Nick.

Lovato’s most recent album, Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over, was released via Island Records. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and topped the Top Album Sales chart.

Demi Lovato to Guest Star on Paris Hilton’s Netflix Series “Cooking with Paris”

Demi Lovato is spending one night in Paris’ kitchen…

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American actor/singer will guest star on Paris Hilton’s upcoming Netflix series Cooking with Paris.

Demi Lovato

“That’s hot…literally,” Hilton says, adding a new spin to her iconic catchphrase, in the trailer for the new reality series.

Cooking with Paris sees the media personality tackle a range of recipes, from savory main dishes to succulent desserts, with guests including Lovato, Kim Kardashian West, Nikki Glaser, Saweetie, Lele Pons, and Kathy and Nicky Hilton.

But half of the fun comes from the host’s unconventional, and often chaotic, cooking practices. She flattens burgers with a diamond encrusted spatula and dredges meat while donning a flashy feathered ensemble.

The trailer sees Hilton navigate a variety of complex kitchen tools and familiarize herself with a number of cooking staples including tongs, lemon zest and tomatillos – all while looking fabulous, of course.

“Any b*tch can cook,” Hilton says, reciting Joyce Wilde and Jacki McClure’s cookbook.

Cooking with Paris debuts on Netflix on August 4.

Demi Lovato Promotes Partnership with Propeller to Raise Awareness & Action for LGBTQ Issues

Demi Lovato is encouraging people to do their part to support the LGBTQ community, even though Pride Month has drawn to a close.

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American actor/singer has shared a new video to help promote their partnership with Propeller, aiming to raise awareness and actions for LGBTQ issues by offering fans a chance to win special prizes.

Demi Lovato

In the clip, Lovato shared the reason why they started the campaign — in order to help LGBTQ and trans youth around the country.

“In 2021 alone, more than 34 states have introduced legislation targeting trans youth,” Lovato said in their video. “It is more important than ever that we continue to work to secure equal rights for all. Join me in taking action to support organizations working hard to defend LGBTQIA+ rights, and support the Equality Act.”

The star also spoke on some of the prizes that fans could win, the biggest being a trip to Joshua Tree to stay at the Invisible House, where Lovato shot the promotional photos for their latest album Dancing With the Devil..The Art of Starting Over

“You’ll have a chance to win items from my closet including outfits I’ve worn on tour or an incredible trip to Joshua Tree,” they added. “I’ve put together some of my favorite things to do and some of my favorite places to go there, and I’m teaming up with Propeller to give that all to you. All you have to enter is take action with Human Rights Campaign, a group that has been working tirelessly to support trans and non-binary equality, and all LGBTQ+ rights for over 40 years.”

For their new campaign, Lovato is urging fans to donate directly to organizations such as HRC, The Trevor Project, and more, while also asking them to sign petitions for causes including the Trevor Project’s “50 Bills 50 States” initiative to end conversion therapy in the U.S., or HRC’s “Count Me In” campaign to support transgender and non-binary youth.

There’s something therapeutic about having raw discussions that people can relate to and with The Demi Lovato Show no topics are off limits and opinions are welcome. I’m so excited for people to see how these conversations unfold on the Roku Channel.”
