Demi Lovato recently spoke during an interview with Billboard where she talks about Fifth Harmony joining her for ‘Neon Lights’ tour next year.
“It’s girl empowerment,” she told Billboard. “I helped put together Fifth Harmony, and a year later they’re on the charts, so I’m really happy for them. It’s surreal. Everyone (in the groups) is a power vocalist — they can all sing — so I love the idea of the show.”
Why she likes about other artists
“I’m always a fan of Paramore, but lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran and Bon Iver,” said Lovato. “I have a ’90s playlist I listen to a lot — Salt-N-Pepa, Boyz II Men, some Mariah [Carey], some Whitney [Houston], SWV. I love the new Drake song, ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home.’ We need more of that on the radio. Things Bruno Mars and Justin [Timberlake] are doing have me excited for radio.”
On Neon Lights Tour
“I want it to be a big party, but I don’t want to exclude any demographics by making it all pop hits,” she says. “I’m in the process of figuring it out, and because I play instruments, it comes easier than if I didn’t. If I do it right, I’ll get in all the hits and the songs that I’m most proud of that represent my style — ‘Heart Attack’ and ‘In Case,’ which is just me and a piano… That’s the message I want people to hear, that there’s more than catchy songs released as singles. The album (tracks) should get more attention. That’s why Ed Sheeran is so inspiring — it’s not just about pop songs.”
