Demi Lovato Answers Fan Questions While Playing With Puppies

Once upon a time Demi Lovato was just another friend on Barney And Friends. But now, she’s a multi-platinum artist, an LGBT activist, and an advocate for mental health. Also, she gifted the world with “Cool For The Summer” which is an achievement all on its own that should not be forgotten.

Demi’s sixth studio album, Tell Me You Love Me was released late August, and to celebrate and talk about what this album means to her, she stopped by the BuzzFeed office to answer fan questions. In addition to fan questions, there were puppies, because everything is better with puppies. Here’s what happened.

Which song on this record was the hardest to write/record?

DL: The hardest song to record was “Smoke & Mirrors” which is on the deluxe version of the album. It was a very emotional song that I wrote on, that basically reminded me of some very emotional times that I went through.

Would you release a song in Spanish in the future? If so which Latin artist would you like to collaborate with?

DL: I actually—you will have to wait and find out, because I recorded something recently that I think you will like.

How is this album different than Confident or any of your other albums?

DL: This album is different from my other albums because it’s more soulful, and I think it’s the most mature out of all the albums that I’ve made. And I’ve done a lot of growing up personally and professionally so, I think that that’s the reason why.

Do you want to act again?

DL: I think I would love to act at some point. I’ve just been so focused with music right now that I haven’t had the chance to.

After watching your cover of “Silent Night”, I couldn’t help but think, would you ever consider making a Christmas album?

DL: I have considered making a Christmas album. Hopefully I’ll do that soon, you never know!

What has been your best achievement so far?

DL: I think having a #1 single was definitely a career highlight, and also getting my Grammy nomination.

Are you planning on directing more of your music videos like how you directed “Made In The USA”?

DL: I think I would love to direct at some point, but — maybe the next one, who knows.

Why did you decide to name your new album Tell Me You Love Me?

DL: I decided to name my album Tell Me You Love Me because it’s one of my favorite songs off of the album and it also is a very vulnerable and raw title.

What is your favorite tattoo that you have, and are you planning on getting more?

DL: I’m not planning on getting more as of right now, but that’ll change i’m sure. My favorite tattoo is my lion on my hand.

What’s the funniest prank you’ve ever pulled, and who did you pull it on?

DL: The funniest prank that I ever pulled on somebody was I pulled a prank on my security guard, and in Vegas it’s legal to hire a lady of the night to make surprise visits for somebody. So, I did that and i sent her to my security guard’s room, and told her to be very forceful and make herself enter the room. And she did just that, and he was very startled and i’m glad that he didn’t keep her.

Miley Cyrus Answers Your Questions While Cuddling With Puppies And It's So Damn Cute

Who has been the most inspiring to you during the creation of your new album?

Miley Cyrus: I wrote my new album at my studio Rainbowland, which is also a song that I sing with Dolly Parton. And so just being around all the colors always really inspired me.

Do you have any advice for young women who feel repressed when it comes to their identity?

MC: My advice would be, surround yourself with friends who think like you, but also make sure you expose yourself to different types of people but keep people around you that always lift you up and support you.

If you could talk to your animals and have them understand you, what would you tell them?

MC: I would hope that all of them know how much that I love them, but I have no doubt in my mind that they do. Because I treat them better than my own family members.

Are the songs from Younger Now put in a specific order to tell a story?

MC: Everything on the record has a reason. In “Younger Now” the song, there’s the sound of the river that’s at my house. And then “Malibu,” that’s where my house is, and then “Rainbowland” is a studio at my house. So it’s kind of like introducing people to where I made the record and [how I] was inspired by where I am, and inspired by Rainbowland.

What’s the sweetest thing a fan has done for you?

MC: I think my fans allowing me to have Happy Hippie in the way that they’ve really supported it — and [opening] up about themselves.

If you weren’t a singer what would you be doing?

MC: This, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365.

Which song from Younger Now is the most special to you?

MC: “Malibu” was the first song that I wrote on this record so it’s extra special to me.

Debra Messing Revealed Her Favorite “Will & Grace” Moment With Sean Hayes And It's Hilarious AF

Sean wrote, “Matthew Damon.” Debra wrote, “Matt Damon.”

SH: Because Matt and I used to play softball—

DM: Do you realize how many episodes we had and how many people came on our show in eight years?!

SH: Yes, and we loved all of them!

DM: Oh my god I can’t believe we got it!

SH: But the only thing is, Matt and I used to play softball right, like on this little team in Santa Monica and I just asked him one day I’m like, “Hey, do you wanna do the show?” He’s like, “Okay.” And that was it! And so we did the show. I only didn’t think you were gonna say that because he was more your storyline than [mine], well, I guess he was both.

DM: No, he was the choir!

SH: Yeah, he was both. But he dated you.

DM: He did. I tried to seduce him.

Justin Theroux And Dave Franco Interview Each Other While Playing With Kittens

What’s it like working with your significant other in projects?

DF: Um, I love it. It was a little nerve-wracking at first, because we were in a relationship in the movie too, and you hope there’s chemistry on screen because otherwise everyone’s like watching you like, why are you—

JT: [laughs] Why are you together?

DF: Exactly. But ultimately it’s easier than working with anyone, just ’cause I can’t be fake in front of her, you know? Anytime there’s like a false moment—

JT: She’ll call you out.

DF: Exactly.

JT: They’re like, Hey, what are you doing? You’re gonna do it like that?

DF: [laughs] Exactly.

Who has more abs, Garmadon or Lego Batman?

JT: Oh, Will Arnett’s gonna be upset. Now this is true, we were looking at our Garmadon figure this morning and—

DF: He’s got a looong torso.

JT: He’s got a really long torso, so it’s double the abs. So that’ll be technically 16, and if you notice on the actual Lego toy, he has back abs. Babs.

DF: That’s true, that’s true.

JT: So he does back day too. So yes, he has more than Batman.

Do you have a go-to artist or album you listen to?

DF: Classic, uh, Otis Redding.

JT: Woah.

DF: Yeah. Some Sam Cooke, all in the same vibe.

Comedy or drama?

JT: Woah. I don’t know, comedy is more fun, obviously, because you get to do a lot more.

DF: Yep.

JT: So that’s more of a fun set.

DF: Have you ever been on like, a really serious drama though where you are laughing in between takes all the time?

JT: Yes, Leftovers was like that. First season we all took it really seriously and between takes we’re like, okay, let’s keep quiet, and let’s keep working. And then by the second season we realized we’d all kill ourselves if we didn’t have a few laughs.

DF: Right.

Justin, do you wish that there was an additional season of the Leftovers, or anything you wish was added into the show that was cut?

JT: No, I don’t wish for another season. I feel like the editors and writers did a fantastic job of getting everything they wanted in. I mean there were things that we shot that were uncomfortable or annoying, but—

DF: Like what?

JT: Like, stuff in water, or getting beat up…

DF: Oh, yeah yeah. And they don’t ultimately use it.

JT: And they don’t ultimately use it. And you go, then why the hell was I sitting in a bucket of freezing water?

DF: Sure, sure. It’s nice to be on a show that just kind of goes out on top though, right? And like, leaves people wanting more.

JT: I hope so. Yeah, I mean, I like closed endings. So, I don’t want something where it starts to feel like it’s trying to be interesting when it’s stopped.

If you had the chance to join the cast of a Broadway show, what would you pick?

DF: You’ve done a lot of theater!

JT: I’ve done theater, but I haven’t done musicals because I can’t sing at all.

DF: A broadway show—I mean exactly, I can’t sing. My favorite show ever is Book of Mormon. So if I could sing, that would be the one.

JT: Oh, that’s hilarious. Yeah that would be the one that I would do too.

What’s the biggest risk you’ve taken that you feel has paid off?

JT: I, too, did skydiving, and it paid off, just as far as the straight up risks, because I survived.

DF: The scariest part is going up, yeah?

JT: The scariest part I think is sitting on the edge of the plane, and going, why am I jumping out of a perfectly good plane?

DF: There’s that moment too.

JT: I’m leaving the good thing, to go to the thing I don’t know about.

DF: Mhmm, mhmm. My guys though, we were filming it for this “do your bucketlist” show, so they were like messing with us. And I wasn’t harnessed into him yet, so we’re on the way up and he’s like faking like throwing me out of the plane, I’m like, this is the worst joke!

JT: I remember, my friend went first before me which I thought was a good idea like, you go first and then I’ll go. I guess I’m gonna see if his parachute works; it’s no correlation.

DF: [laughs] Right.

JT: But I remember him dropping out of the plane and he looked like Sandra Bullock in Gravity, he just went poof, like disappeared, and became this teensy little dot so fast.

16 Songs To Listen To During Every Stage Of Your Break Up

When you need to hear it: When you can’t stop thinking about all of the magical good times but are slowly realizing your person was not the person you thought they were, and need a reminder that you deserve better, damnit.

Lyrics:

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man

Here's The Adorable Way That George Clooney Proposed To Amal

2. So of course the proposal was bound to be just as insanely adorable. And in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, George revealed what actually went down when he finally popped the question.

3. He explained that as the “cook of the family” he decided to propose over a homemade dinner, sneakily hiding the ring in a nearby drawer…

I’m the cook in the family. Believe me, Amal makes reservations. I did pasta of some form, not that impressive. And then over champagne, after dinner, I told her there was a lighter to light the candle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring.

5. …while a cute as hell playlist about ~taking a chance on love~ echoed in the background, as he got down on one knee.

And I did all the stuff, got down on my knee and did all the things you’re supposed to do. I had a playlist with my Rosemary songs on it [his late aunt was the singer Rosemary Clooney], and I was waiting for this song, ‘Why Shouldn’t I?’ ‘Why shouldn’t I take a chance when romance passes by? / Why shouldn’t I know of love?’ It’s a really good song about why can’t I be in love? And it played, and she’s like, ‘Holy shit!’ And she just kept staring at the ring, going, ‘Oh, my God.’ It was 20 minutes of me on my knee, waiting for her to say yes, because she was so shocked.

7. Anyways, now I’m crying at my desk. Thank you, Clooneys, for giving me a shrivel of hope in this dark, dark world.
