Demi Lovato stopped by Apple Music’s New Music Daily to together with Zane Lowe, talked about her new record, I Love Me.

 

 

 

Demi says, “This track is all about loving yourself.  You Know? It’s an anthem.  It talks about how hard we are on ourselves and the negative self-talk [and] how easily we can listen to that.  But when is loving yourself gonna be enough?”  Demi also opens up about her upcoming album.  She says, “I’m actually [still] finishing up some of the album. It was gonna be done a lot earlier… and then, um, after my performances, we kinda went back to the drawing board.  I thought, ‘What is this album missing? Am I really putting out the best work that I possibly can?’ So I’m just taking a little bit more time with it.”

 

 

Demi also hints at the album’s main message, which is ‘to love yourself no matter what,’ “I feel like that’s obviously the goal for the rest of my life. It’s not something that I wanna just stop with this album. It’s so important to always remember that.  We really are all we have. At the end of the day when we enter this world and when we leave this world, our souls are all we have. It’s important to respect them, treat our bodies like temples, and love ourselves as much as possible.”

 

 

 

In the meantime, Demi has found ways to self-care and self-love, “I do little things like self-care that seem really simple but add up over time.  You know, things like meditation or even just taking, like, Epsom salt baths. You know, like aromatherapy, listening to music and crying, like getting your emotions out. Whatever it is, just loving yourself, getting massages. Doing things for you that you might value as minor or unimportant. But at the end of the day, when you do little unimportant things for yourself, it, you’re showing yourself that you, that you matter to you.”

 

And what about social media? “My relationship to social media is very simple right now.  I don’t let people tag me and stuff. Um, I turned that set off on the settings. I don’t even think I have like, I let the comments on. I mean, I might. I, I don’t even really check to be honest. I wouldn’t even know. But it’s just so not important to me.  What’s important is that when I get to communicate with my fans, so sometimes I have, I follow some fan accounts or just have some fans that I message back and forth.  Like staying in communication with them through that way or utilizing social media to have a platform and get my message across that way is important as well.  But when it comes to things like letting it ruin my, (laughs) you know, mood… because someone said something negative, I don’t let it do that anymore.  And I’ve gone to great lengths to actually protect myself from that, which I think unfortunately is something that people have to do nowadays,” shares Demi
