A postive review of Demi Lovato’s ‘Unbroken’

Back in January 2019, I wrote a positive review of Britney Spears’ worst received album “Britney Jean.” That was probably the hardest review I have written. It’s harder than it looks to write a positive piece about something that was crappier than a sewer pipe in Manhattan. Because a little part of me like pain and torture, it’s time that we take a look at Demi Lovato’s “Unbroken.” The vain of every Lovatics existence.

This review will be reaching as I try to make this album seems less crappy

You’re my only shorty

How this is going to work is that I’m going to talk positively about the album without mentioning the singles. So “Skyscraper” and “Give Your Heart a Break” won’t be mentioned at all. It’s like they never existed, what we all wish would happen with this album. If I do a good job, then I’ll allow myself one paragraph to bitch and moan about this album.

At least the photoshoot was pretty, unlike that hat

“Unbroken” was released in the fall of 2011. It was Demi’s first album since having to go to rehab and dealing with her personal issues. It’s a lot more mature than the previous two albums. Demi wrote the album based on her personal struggles that she was facing at the time. She worked with artists such as Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Dev, Lyaz, and Jason Derulo. It was very nice of her to give these people clout and relevancy again.

The album has one consistent theme throughout most of the album and that is party song. Those songs touch on things like having fun, self-empowerment, and love. I appreciated that Demi tried her hand at creating something different with her music. I also appreciated that she took the time to make something for her fans.

There are some ballads on the album but dance-pop/R&B music make up most of it. Those party songs are good to dance songs if you are either high, drunk, or all of the above. Demi’s vocals are rather good on the album. But it’s Demi Lovato. She could be singing “Baby Shark” and it would sound amazing.

If you don’t want to hear my actual thoughts then I would just skip what follows. I earned my right to bitch and moan about “Unbroken.” So without further ado, here are my thoughts on “Unbroken:”

This album isn’t very good as Demi openly admits that she wrote this album when she wasn’t sober. It very much shows. You know what an album this is going to be when both the song titles and artist that she is working with make you go “what the fuck?” I don’t know why Demi would pick a song called “You’re My Only Shorty.” Unless it’s a subtle sorry to the dancer she punched in the face, Ariana Grande demoed the song and didn’t like it so why did she? Probably the drugs and booze. And I’m not making fun of Demi’s addiction. I’m just saying it had a lot to do with the quality of the album.

“Unbroken” is a sentiment that even talented people can release shit every once and awhile. I hope you enjoyed my positive review of “Unbroken.” I hurt every fiber of my soul to write this. I’m very glad that Demi took the time to make something. I just wish next time, someone lets her know when it’s not good.

Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera fight patriarchy in ‘Fall in Line’ video

Demi and Christina aren’t putting up with shit anymore.

After performing the song at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato have blessed us with the video for their collaboration “Fall in Line.” The song was originally released last week to overwhelming reviews, mainly for Demi’s high note that will cause you to freak out.

Off of Christina’s upcoming album “Liberation,” “Fall In Line” is an anthem for female empowerment. The video for the song also portrays that. It features both Christina and Demi being captured and forced to perform in front of cameras for mask men. Towards the end of the video, both of them are able to sneak out and be free from the oppression.

The video feels like “Confident 2.0.” In case you forgot, here my review of Demi’s video, Demi was a secret agent hired by a man to take down another female agent. Both eventually turned on him and took their benefactor out. This video had a similar feel to it. Especially towards the end when both Christina and Demi were being extremely sneaky to leave the compound. This video is also a reminder that you shouldn’t mess with Demi. It’s easy to forget that she likes Mixed Martial Arts and that she could even make Nick Jonas cry for his mommy. You’re welcome for that imagery.

It looks me a long time to like “Fall in Line.” It’s definitely better than “Accelerate.” Of course, anything is better than that. I still have nightmare from it. “Fall in Line” is certifiable bop. The video tells a story but could have been better. But it does make the song better than without it.

Demi Lovato teams up with Clean Bandit to sing about doing it ‘Solo’

Demi Lovato sings about doing it herself in her newest collab

We have a self-love anthem of the summer and it’s provided by the Queen of TMI, Demi Lovato. While we all love her love of over sharing, her latest collaboration is something that dreams are made of. Demi teamed up with the British band Clean Bandit to give us a song that no one will forget.

“Solo” is a dance-pop song that is about wanting to get laid but instead of just randomly hooking up someone, Demi is just going to take her of it herself. That is right, Demi Lovato is singing about touching herself because no one can seem to please her. Leave it to Demi to spill that piping hot tea. The production of the song is extremely well done. It sounds like they spent time perfecting the song.

The song itself is a way better than the last couple of collaborations she has done since “No Promises.” It’s extremely catchy and is just a song that you can lose yourself to because it has such a catchy beat. The biggest complaint I have of the song is the sounds and extra vocals they added to the song in addition to Demi’s vocals. It’s extremely alarming during the chorus where they use it to pretty much censor the lyrics. They could have used them in a better way than what they did. It works with the song, just not in a good way.

“Solo” is a very good song. I really enjoyed it and hope to see Demi performs it because I think it would be an excellent addition to her bed set on her tour. I just hope she removes the extra vocals on the song. The song would be way better without them. Also, it needs more swearing. Demi dropping F-bombs is life.

Review: Demi Lovato shares all in “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated”

simplycomplicated-sm

She’s got all them Daddy issues

Yesterday, Demi Lovato released an extremely open, honest, and tell-all documentary on YouTube. Sure, we have had one before like the one she did on MTV called “Demi Lovato: Stay Strong” but she was apparently high on cocaine during that entire thing so let’s just forget that it happened.

“Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated” is a Demi Lovato pretty much letting her hair down and just her being herself. It’s an extremely heavy documentary about her life. It covers everything from her time on “Barney” to her life now. The now features clips of her recording vocals for songs off of her album “Tell Me You Love Me” as well as looks into her life. This stuff is the best and happy parts of the whole entire documentary.

I also liked how it didn’t skim over the Disney years. It covered everything rather well. You can kind of connect the events that started downward spiral of Demi. A lot of it had to do with too much, too fast. It made sense with everything that was going on with her life. We also find out finally why she’s punched her backup dancer. It was really amazing to see her come clean about it all.

The worse part of the documentary for me was her talking about her eating disorder. It’s not worse as in bad, but rather just hard to watch. Demi talks about girls in her school telling her to kill herself and then having a petition for it as well. It raised so many questions like why would any adult condone this? If I saw this going on, I would have stopped this immediately. No one should ever have to go through that.

We also need to talk about the fact we got the answer to why her album “Unbroken” was a dumpster fire train wreck. Apparently, she was messed up during the entire “Unbroken” era. That entire album is now making sense now, isn’t it? I’m pretty sure that the only two good songs on the album, “Skyscraper” and “Give Your Heart a Break,” were probably written when she wasn’t higher than a kite.

I recommend watching “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated” because it’s honestly something that is extremely good. Whether you are a fan of Demi or not, you will gain some respect for her. It’s also free on YouTube. You can’t beat watching something for free. But as I stated above, it’s extremely heavy. Prepare yourself for it before getting too deep in it.  You will feel a wide range of emotions. You will be an emotionally hot mess. I just really hope that Lifetime doesn’t make her life into a crappy Lifetime movie.
