Demi Lovato is bringing fans into her world with her new e-book, “Demi.” The book, out now, takes fans along for the journey with the singer and “X Factor” judge during the making of her album of the same name, which dropped last month.
Billed as “the official companion” to the album, the book gives fans behind-the-scenes access to the singer, including never-before-seen footage and interviews. In one clip, she says that being honest and open is not only the message she’s sending her fans in the book but also on her 2013 album release.
“I wrote about personal experiences and became more candid about them,” she says in a video clip featured in the release. “I also feel like my lyrics were more vulnerable, and I’m just really proud of how honest I was in this album.”
The e-book also takes a look back at Demi’s career up to this point, including a timeline of some of the former Disney star’s biggest moments. But the book really takes a look at who Lovato is now as a performer, as evidenced in featured performance footage. In one clip, the 20-year-old belts out her Demi ballad “In Case.” Shot in black-and-white, the clip strips it all down and puts Demi’s voice on full display.
She said, “This album I’ve had enough time to really reflect on personal experiences and look back at my life after having overcome a bunch of things. I’ve been more aware of myself; therefore, when you listen to the album, you can really tell in the lyrics and in the emotion and everything I worked really, really hard on this album, and hopefully you’ll be able to hear that.”
While it seems like the book may reveal sides of the singer she’s never shown before, in “Demi” she admits that her Lovatics already know almost everything about her, including the struggles that landed her in a treatment facility in 2010. Still, there is one thing they may not realize about the multi-hyphenate performer as revealed in the book.
“What they may not know is that I give really good advice and I like to pride myself on that,” she said. “So when my friends call me, if it’s in the middle of the night or during the day, I will be a really great friend and sit on the phone and make sure that I don’t hang up until they’re good.”
