Demi Lovato Nursing Her ‘Heart Attack’ And A Broken Leg

'X Factor' judge talks to Ryan Seacrest about the brand-new single and why she's on crutches.

Demi Lovato built a “Skyscraper” in 2011, and now she’s ready to knock all those walls down on her upcoming album.

“Sometimes it’s so much harder to get hurt than it is letting your wall down and falling in love,” she told Ryan Seacrest Tuesday (February 26), days after dropping “Heart Attack,” the lead single off her 2013 album. “[It's about]
other situations where I felt abandoned in my life and when you open up your heart to somebody, it’s a risk. And this song is about taking that risk.”

Even though the track got an early release after it was leaked weeks ahead of its March 4 release date, Lovato told Seacrest, “At the end of the day, I just want my song out there.”

When she isn’t singing about nursing a broken heart, she’s actually nursing a broken leg. The singer broke her fibula earlier this month, and in a strange way Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence played a part in her injury.

“[My roommate] did the whole floor [with Pledge]. I had this screener for ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ I went to sit down. I got up for a Popsicle I came back and I slipped and fell,” she recalled, noting she should be back to normal in the next three months. “And it just snapped.”

Lovato also addressed speculation about whether she will return to the “X Factor.” While she said she “doesn’t know yet” if she’ll stay on the panel, if she does return, she has no plans to go easy on Simon Cowell. “I’m kind of fearless and I’m from Texas. I say what’s on my mind and I can’t really hide. It’s a perfect combination like me [and him]. He loves it.”

With new music and a possible return to “X Factor” currently on her docket, could Lovato also make room for a love life?
While she wouldn’t open up about her rumored relationship with Wilmer Valderrama, she did share she does someday plan to marry… someone.

“Absolutely it just depends on when my life is ready,” she said, noting she’s not ready yet because her career takes up a lot of time. “I don’t know if I could wait that long if I find someone.”
