Demi Lovato’s Directing Dream Has ‘Come True’

'Heart Attack' singer opens up about how her spot in the director's chair came about.

Demi Lovato is redefining the term “triple threat.” Not only can she sing and act, but now, she can direct.

Earlier this month, Lovato tweeted out to her 14 million followers that she “got those directing shoes on” followed by a series of pictures that showed the “Heart Attack” singer behind the camera.

“I had my directorial debut on a video shoot, not saying which one,” Lovato said during ” Live From MTV.” “It may or may not be ['Made in the USA'] and you may or may not find out later, but I had a lot of fun and I think I found a new passion.”

Demi told her Lovatics that it was her “dream come true” to direct her upcoming music video, which many are speculating that it’s for her rumored next single “Made in the USA” off her latest album Demi.

Going from being in front of the camera to behindit wasn’t too difficult for Lovato; being a director has been a goal of hers for quite some time.

“I always wanted to do it when I was younger, then I just had the opportunity this time and I was like ‘oh my god I have to take advantage of this,’ ” Lovato said. “So I came up with the idea for the treatment and I told my manager this is what I want on this second and on this shot and this to happen… and want this camera to pan that way and he was like, ‘Why don’t you just direct it?’ and I was like, ‘OK!’ ”

At the time, Lovato admitted that she hadn’t seen playback of the video and as of now no release date has been set, but one thing we do know is that Lovato certainly had fun in the director’s chair.

“I was just directing other people and that was pretty awesome,” Lovato said. “I got really into it, I was like yelling.”
