Demi Lovato wants to bring more "emotion" to music. The "Skyscraper" hitmaker - who underwent a three-month stint in rehab in 2010 to receive help for self harm, bipolar disorder and an eating disorder - has learned to "connect" with her audience by being truthful about herself and admires the work of Adele and Taylor Swift, who make catchy, honest songs.
"For a long time, I was pretending to be someone that I wasn't, and I was miserable. When I came out and said, 'I'm human, I've got problems, but I'm willing to share them,' that's when I started to really connect. I've just begun working on my fourth album, and I want to do that in my music too. I'm tired of songs that don't have much emotion in them. I love the way that Adele has carved out a path for a singer that's very emotional, but I also love how Taylor Swift can do the same thing--she puts a lot into her songs yet they're still very catchy."
The Jonas Brothers will have to go without a warm-up act during their international tour.
Singer Demi Lovato -- who had been performing with the boys -- abruptly exited the tour over the weekend to cope with "emotional and physical" issues.
Lovato, who has openly talked about being bullied in her past, reportedly made the decision to seek treatment following a fight with a female dancer.
Due to the timing of her departure, Demi will not be replaced on the last few dates of the tour. The Jonas Brothers are next scheduled to perform in Santiago, Chile on Thursday.
