And I call dibs on Demi Lovato after she's done with Fez.
“Two Pieces” by Demi Lovato
Believe In Me from Don’t Forget
(mainly when she was in treatment, I couldn’t listen to that song).
For the Love of a Daughter from Unbroken.
And now Warrior from Demi.
And it sucks, because they’re good songs (especially FtLoaD - that song is ridiculously incredible), but they just make me want to sob for days.
And I know Warrior is ultimately an uplifting, positive song, but when it comes to my theory about what that song is actually about…I just can’t. The thought of it destroys me.
So I’ll just sit here and listen to Gift of a Friend instead, since that has to be the most harmless song in her discography.
1. Made in the USA by Demi Lovato
‘cause that’s the way I like to do it. that’s the way I like.
plus that banjo, y’all.
2. One Direction’s “Take Me Home” album
live like we’re young kiss you little things last first kiss heart attack over again
3. Selena Gomez’s face
4. This one girl…
Me: My worst nightmare just came true.
Nina: Demi is pregnant?
Me: Okay, my third worst nightmare just came true (the second being that Demi is engaged to Wilmer).

Unbroken, For the Love of a Daughter
Heart Attack, In Case, Shouldn’t Come Back
Still don’t have an overall conclusion about “Demi” or how I’m comparing it to Unbroken, but I already like it better than I did upon initial listens and I am absolutely in love with “Made in the USA.” It’s perf, so I really hope that’s her next single.
I have friends in town or else I would be playing it on repeat this entire day. I still probably will repeat it a good deal.
Also, “Shouldn’t Come Back” is amazing as is “In Case.”
In fact, I only really have beef with “Neon Lights” (but I think it’s lyrically strong is the thing; it’s just that obnoxious Rihanna-esque music) and “Firestarter” (also too modern pop for me as well). But I hate “Together” from Unbroken even more than those songs combined, so lol
And okay, I have slight beef with “Never Been Hurt”, only because it is literally the exact same song as “Unbroken” haha Down to the strong chord progression that would translate really well in an acoustic cover, but is presented as electronic pop in the actual song, but of course really the subject matter of the song.
Like, the chorus. “I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been broken” versus “I will love you like I’ve never been hurt.” Um? lol
It’s cute, though. Demi really wants someone to know that she’s going to love them comprehensively, despite her past troubles with love. But I mean, it’s still the same song. Except I like Unbroken better - it was my 2nd favorite song on that album.
Anyway, let me listen to this album another fifteen times before I rate it and decide if I like it better than Unbroken. Which I might, because I ended up really not liking Unbroken that much - just several songs. The rest I’d skip. And let’s be real - a lot of those songs were not good. Because she didn’t write a lot on it. And Demi can construct a solid melody and is a good lyricist, and I think that does show on “Demi.” I can connect to this album more because of that, so I probably will ultimately like it more than Unbroken (but let’s be real - that’s not very hard haha)
Nothing beats “Here We Go Again”, though. But I know Demi was aiming to be mainstream with this album, so as far as a mainstream album goes, it is really good on that spectrum.
But one day, I hope she goes back to emotional raw pop rock, because that will probably be her best album yet.
