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.

Top 5ive: Demi Lovato

demilovato

Don’t tell your mother

Originally published back in 2015, It’s time that I update this list in honor of Demi’s new album being released tomorrow. On this week’s Top 5ive, I’m counting down the top 5ive singles of Demi Lovato.

Without further ado, here’s the top 5ive:

5. Don’t Forget

Who can forget this song? (see what I did there?) It was a single off of her debut album of the same name and it was pretty much a masterpiece of feeling and music. From the synths and the guitar melodies in the beginning to the rocking middle, the song is something that makes your ears happy to listen too. The music video was also something that was also amazing! Demi rocking out with the fountain behind her changing colors and going cray-cray is just iconic.

4. Here We Go Again

One of the first real hits of Demi. It was the first sign that Demi was more than just a Disney Channel Darling. She could actually produce music that was more than just for the DC, which heavily promoted the song in-between shows. It was her best-selling single until “Skyscraper” came out in the 2010s.  It was the right amount of rock and roll to make the song catchy and cool. Pretty much, it’s the perfect single to come out for Demi.

3. Heart Attack

It’s the single that introduced us to the less family friendly version of Demi Lovato. This Demi was a mixture of Pop and Rock and boy, did she kick a lot of ass. So did “Heart Attack” when it was released. It was like “Here We Go Again” had a child and this was that child. Demi slayed the vocals on the song and pretty much killed everyone’s ears–in a good way.

2. Skyscrapper

While the song came from the album “Unbroken,” and the album kind of sucked, but the song is a rather amazing song. It’s realest song Demi has done as she began to start to cry during the song and it just adds to the depth of the song and makes the listener feel something when they listen to Demi’s vocals on the song.

1. Cool For The Summer

This song is pretty much just one entire jam. You can’t help but rock out to this song. The lyrics are catchy af, the chorus pumps you up, and the fact that you can’t tell your mother about kissing one another just makes it a bop. If this song isn’t on your summer playlist, then you aren’t doing summer right at all. Click here for my review of it.

Honorable Mention: This is Me

While I normally don’t count songs like these as “singles,” I’m going to make exception because this song is the reason we are having a Top 5ive countdown of Demi. It made her a household name and put her career on the map. Sure, the movie was slightly popular and she really hasn’t done anything popular since but it’s rather good song. Like most of her songs, it’s relatable.

Honorable Mention: Sorry Not Sorry

Everyone needs to have a FU song. This is Demi’s FU song. It’s a rather good FU song. Click here for my review of it.
