Demi Lovato has never been comfortable as a “hyper-feminine pop star.”
The 30-year-old singer admitted she felt uncomfortable early in her pop career – when she was painted as a femme fatale – and took aim at her old management team in her new track ‘Eat Me’.
Demi told the BBC: “One of the lines is, ‘Would I want you more if I was still her?’ and I mean a period of time in my life when I was this ultra-feminine pop star that everyone wanted to see me as.
“I was on stage in a leotard and stilettos, and it was never comfortable for me. And so “Eat Me” was definitely a song where I talked about how I was tired of spoon-feeding myself to the public.
“This song just says, ‘This is who I am, take it or leave it.'”
Meanwhile, Demi’s boyfriend, Jute$, recently called himself the “happiest chump in the world.”
The chart-topping pop star turned 30 on Saturday (20/08/22), and Jute$ took to Instagram to praise the “Cool for the Summer” hitmaker.
Alongside a series of romantic photos and videos, Jute$ wrote: “Happy birthday baby. You’re 30 years old and I’m the happiest dork in the world because I get to call you mine. making you laugh is my new obsession because your smile is literally cures my depression (there are lyrics in there somewhere) i’m so proud of you for not only going through everything you’ve been through but coming out on top and being your healthiest, happiest, sweetest you. and that’s all you baby… i’m just here to support you and tell you silly dad jokes when needed. you’re more than your music, more than your voice, more than a pretty face. your everything. i love you (yeah)”
