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.

Demi Lovato Makes Tiny Desk Debut with Powerhouse Performance

It’s a not-so-Tiny moment for Demi Lovato

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has made her Tiny Desk debut on with a stripped-down, three-song set from her backyard.

Demi Lovato

Backed by only a keyboardist, Lovato allowed her powerhouse vocals to shine through performances of her 2017 single “Tell Me You Love Me,” along with two cuts — “The Art Of Starting Over” and “Dancing With The Devil” — from her new album, Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over.

“I’m super excited to be filming this outside, because I’m really, really excited about the weather changing. Spring is my second favorite, and summer is my absolute favorite season, so I’m really happy to be out in the bright, sunny California sun,” Lovato shared between songs.

The singer-songwriter performed against a backdrop of an adorable kitchen set, which included a very small desk, as is appropriate.

Tiny Desk is a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music. They’re typically held at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen in Washington, D.C., but are being filmed at offsite due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Demi Lovato’s “Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart

Demi Lovato is dancing her way to the top of the sales charts…

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress’ latest album Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart dated April 17.

Demi Lovato

The set was released on April 2 via Island/Republic and sold 38,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending April 8, according to MRC Data.

Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over is Lovato’s second No. 1 on Top Album Sales, and seventh consecutive top five-charting effort – the entirety of her charting albums. She previously topped the tally in 2009 with Here We Go Again.

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated December 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.

Of the album’s debut sales of 38,000, physical album sales comprise 25,000 of that figure (all in CD sales) while digital album sales comprise 13,000. Sales of the album got help from the availability of a Target-exclusive CD edition of the set with two bonus tracks, a signed CD sold via Lovato’s official website, multiple CD cover variants and a deluxe edition with bonus tracks available through digital retailers.

Lovato’s 19-track album is separated into two parts, with the “Prelude” including the first three tracks — “Anyone,” which she debuted at the 2020 Grammys, the title track “Dancing With the Devil” and “ICU (Madison’s Lullabye)” — detailing her struggles with addiction and near-fatal heroin overdose in 2018.

The Art of Starting Over turns the page and starts a new chapter in Lovato’s recovery journey with the remaining 16 songs.

Following her previously released “What Other People Say” single with Sam Fischer, the album includes highly anticipated collaborations with Ariana Grande (“Met Him Last Night“), Noah Cyrus (“Easy“), and Saweetie (“My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriend“).

She also unveiled the music video for the title track, which recreates the painful scene of her hospitalization immediately after her overdose three years ago.

 

Lovato belts out the stirring ballad from her hospital bed and in some scenes, occasionally lies unconscious as her family tearfully watches over her and holds her hand. The devil is also in the details of the accompanying visual, which Lovato co-directed with Michael D. Ratner, who also helmed her four-part YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil.

Demi Lovato Reenacts Near-Fatal Overdose in Harrowing “Dancing With the Devil” Video

Demi Lovato is reliving a traumatic moment from her past…

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released the official music video for her new single, “Dancing With the Devil… the Art of Starting Over.

While she discusses the painful details of the night and the life events that led up to her ovedose in a recently released documentary, the video, which Lovato co-directed with documentary director Michael D. Ratner, re-enacts the evening of her O.D. and sexual assault, in broad but disturbing detail.

The video opens with her singing from a hospital bed with an oxygen tube beneath her nose. It then cuts to the evening in question, where an increasingly inebriated Lovato is seen downing multiple drinks by herself in a bar, then bleary-eyed in a car with other people whose faces aren’t visible. She is then in a bedroom, where a man drops a bag that is presumably filled with the drugs that nearly killed her, and then the drug dealer is seen standing beside Lovato, who is passed out in her bed. He is then shown leaving, while she is apparently nude under the covers.

The clip ends with contact information for addiction assistance (1-800-662-HELP (4357) or samhsa.gov; sexual assault (1-800-656-HOPE 4673) and depresstion (text HOME 741741 / U.K. SHOUT 85258 / Canada CONNECT 686868).

“Thought I knew my limit, yeah/ I thought that I could quit it, yeah,” she sings in the song. “I thought that I could walk away easily, but here I am, falling down on my knees, praying for better days to come and wash this pain away. Could you please forgive me? Lord, I’m so sorry for dancing with the devil.”

Demi Lovato Discusses New Collaborations with Ariana Grande, Saweetie & Noah Cyrus

Demi Lovato is opening up about her latest collaborations…

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has shared the title of her collaboration with Ariana Grande in her Paper cover story.

Demi Lovato,

Met Him Last Night,” which will be featured on Lovato’s upcoming seventh studio album Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over on April 2, “highlights two of the most powerful voices in pop,” according to Paper.

Lovato also confirmed she and Saweetie will tag-team a female empowerment anthem titled “My GFs Are My BFs,” which Saweetie shared on her Twitter on Friday amid confirming her breakup with Quavo.

Another song, “The Kind of Lover I Am,” directly nods to Lovato’s queer identity that she subtly hinted at in her 2015 hit “Cool for the Summer,” with lyrics about how it “doesn’t matter if you’re a woman or a man.”

The pop star also confirmed another featured artist will be on her forthcoming LP: Noah Cyrus. She posted an audio snippet of their collaboration on her socials over the weekend.

Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over serves as the companion project to her YouTube Originals docuseries Dancing With the Devil, which arrives on Tuesday. It previously premiered at SXSW on March 16.
