Demi Lovato’s Current Home Is a Sober Living Facility

Demi Lovato has gone through some major ups and downs, but while her career is soaring, she’s still focusing on her sobriety. In fact, the singer even resides in a sober living facility.

According to TMZ, the ‘X Factor‘ judge has been living in a Los Angeles area recovery home for over a year. Different facilities have varying rules in place, but sober housing usually offers a supervised living environment that enforces structure, accountability and responsibility.

The news comes after the recent rumor that Lovato is back in rehab. The 20-year-old was fingered as the subject of a blind item from Blind Gossip, which said that the reason behind the celeb’s Twitter hiatus was her return to treatment.

In 2010, the ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ singer admitted that she suffered from bipolar disorder and went to rehab for issues with anorexia, bulimia and cutting. A source tells TMZ that Lovato moved into the sober living facility shortly after her inpatient rehab stint, despite owning a home in L.A.

While on hiatus from ‘X Factor,’ Lovato is refocusing on her music career, and is getting ready to release a new single soon. She also just won a 2013 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Celebrity Judge, beating out ‘The Voice’s’ Adam Levine, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.

Demi Lovato’s New Single Rumored to Be Called ‘Pieces of a Heart’

UPDATE: According to Disney Music Group, the single is not called ‘Pieces of a Heart.’ It is still unknown what her next single will be called, and when it will drop!

Does Demi Lovato have a new song on the way? According to a rumored tweet by MTV’s Sway Calloway, Lovato’s ‘Pieces of a Heart’ will debut on ‘MTV First’ on Feb. 13 at precisely 7:49PM ET.

The tweet was reportedly posted by Sway and then deleted, though it can be seen online in screenshot form. Maybe he wasn’t supposed to reveal the news just yet and his bosses asked him to remove the posting. If the alleged tweet was accurate, ‘Pieces of a Heart’ could be the lead single from Lovato’s fourth album, which is due sometime this year.

What might ‘Pieces of a Heart’ mean if it’s the actual song title? It could be a sad song about a heart shattered by breakup. Or maybe it’s a metaphor about love. We like the second explanation, especially since the track would be premiering on the eve of Valentine’s Day.

February would be a good time for Lovato to drop a new single, since ‘X Factor‘ is on hiatus. Her last album, 2011′s ‘Unbroken,’ proved to be a successful comeback effort with hit singles ‘Skyscraper’ and ‘Give Your Heart a Break.’

Just don’t wait on Lovato to confirm or deny the report about the new song on Twitter, because she’s taking a break from the social media site.

Is Demi Lovato Back in Rehab?

Following her self-imposed Twitter hiatus, it’s suspected that Demi Lovato is back in rehab.

A new blind item from Blind Gossip that’s almost transparently directed at the ‘X Factor‘ judge suggests that the starlet took a Twitter hiatus because she’s in treatment. It says that the subject blamed “gossip sites” for her problems, and if you recall, that’s the subject of Lovato’s Twitter rant prior to her break from the site.

While blind items are often fake, some outlets use them to avoid lawsuits for publishing stories that could affect a star’s ability to get work. Lovato addressed this herself after a previous Twitter break which the same outlet said was a coverup for rehab. Just before Valentine’s Day in 2012, Lovato said she was taking a break from Twitter to go on a “cleansing retreat.” Lovato denied she was in rehab at the time.

It’s unclear why Blind Gossip seems to take pleasure in bullying Lovato, but it’s also unclear what she’s up to. She spent New Year’s Eve sipping coffee with friends and reflecting on her treatment, which is ongoing — so if nothing else, her head is surely in the right place. Whatever she’s up to, we hope she’s staying healthy — we’re Lovatics here at PopCrush — and we hope she’s ignoring the gossip!

Who Should Win the 2013 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Pop Artist? – Readers Poll

The 2013 People’s Choice Awards will air on Wednesday, Jan. 9, and the competition for Favorite Pop Artist is pretty stiff this year. Fans of Adele, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Pink have been putting those pointer fingers to work, voting non-stop for their favorite singer in order to help them snag the coveted, crystal clear statue… but who have you been voting for? We want to inside scoop!

While Adele hasn’t really been in the spotlight since the 2012 Grammy Awards, where she cleaned house thanks to her masterpiece ’21,’ she is still nominated for the 2013 Favorite Pop Artist People’s Choice award. The wave that is ’21′ will not break, and her most current batch of hits (like ‘Rumour Has It’ and ‘Set Fire to the Rain’) kept up their momentum throughout 2012. She also dropped the James Bond theme ‘Skyfall,’ another hauntingly beautiful piece of vocal work from Ms. Atkins.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber are also nominated. Both of these pop powerhouses had massive years in 2012, with K.P. releasing her ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ deluxe album and Bieber unleashing his second studio album ‘Believe.’ Perry saw HUGE success with her new singles ‘Part of Me’ and ‘Wide Awake,’ which she performed out on tour and at a number of events this past year, while Bieber embarked on a world tour and ruled the airwaves with ‘Boyfriend,’ ‘As Long as You Love Me,’ and ‘Beauty and a Beat.’

Demi Lovato and Pink are also in the running for the Favorite Pop Artist PCA, and for good reason! On top of her radio domination with ‘Give Your Heart a Break,’ Lovato also inked a deal with ‘X Factor’ and appeared on the FOX reality show alongside fellow new judge Britney Spears, as well as vets L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell. Not bad for a lady who hasn’t even hit 21 yet!

And then there’s Pink, whose album ‘The Truth About Love’ was one of the biggest of 2012. She’s up for a bunch of Grammys for the LP, and her live performances of tracks like ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ and ‘Try’ created some incredibly memorable moments for us in 2012. Oh yeah, and she announced she’ll be going on tour with the Hives in 2013, which is pretty freakin’ awesome.

Let us know who you think should win the 2013 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Pop Artist by voting for Adele, Katy, Justin, Demi or Pink below. Also, be sure to stay tuned in with PopCrush on Wednesday, Jan. 9, too, as we’ll have complete live coverage of the People’s Choice Awards right here for you!

Demi Lovato Gets Weird on ‘The Eric Andre Show’

The New Year is traditionally a time of making a fresh start by saying goodbye to the old and ringing in the new — but when Demi Lovato strolled onto the stage of ‘The Eric Andre’s New Year’s Eve Spooktacular,’ she must have felt like she’d entered a whole new dimension.

As you can see from the brief clip embedded above, Lovato started her guest stint by walking out onto what looked suspiciously like a normal (f somewhat low-budget) talk show set, but things quickly took a turn for the surreal when she was handed a plate of spaghetti and subjected to a rapid-fire barrage of compliments that ended with Andre comparing her appearance to his and co-host Hannibal Buress’s in decidedly unfavorable terms.

Things only got weirder from there, with Andre “interviewing” Lovato by listing off her screen credits, including ‘Camp Rock’ (Buress’s favorite) and the PBS-sanctioned scourge of children’s entertainment, ‘Barney and Friends.’ To her extreme credit, Lovato played along willingly (although she did fob off her food on Buress, who didn’t seem to mind) — but she did seem to lose it a little bit when former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach walked out, threw his leg up on Andre’s desk while screaming some nonsense, and walked away without explanation.

By the time Andre started his countdown, Lovato made the extremely sensible decision to use it as her cue to quietly disappear offstage — but by then, she’d already hung around long enough to provide us with some of the most memorably bizarre entertainment we’re likely to receive in 2013. Thanks, Demi!

Demi Lovato Quits Twitter After Trust Rant

Demi Lovato has a long and twisted history with Twitter — and she recently quit the microblogging site yet again.

Lovato posted a small rant about trust on Jan. 3, writing, “Patience + communication = trust When you learn how to communicate with others, there’s almost no problem you can’t solve.” She added, “P.S. Only surround yourself with people who you CAN communicate with. Trust is a bond between TWO people that is found ONLY when they are able to listen/understand where the other person is coming from. That to me, is the key to friendships/ relationships.”

Of course, the world was pretty confused by it. While it’s great advice for sure, it also sort of came out of left field, leading a lot of sites to speculate that Lovato had split with on-again off-again boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. (Last we knew, they were “on” — he was photographed visiting the ‘X Factor‘ set.) Her previous Twitter breaks have often coincided with their splits.

Before taking her Twitter hiatus, the ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ singer wrote, “I don’t get how people get “stories” from very vague twitter posts… About friendship…..??” She added, “Blehh. I really love my fans but I hate gossip sites… Gonna take a breather from twitter.. I love y’all!”

Lovato may well have simply referenced her own friends. Lovato rang in 2013 with coffee and friends, and she’s said previously that before she went to treatment that she didn’t surround herself with the right people. Her rep told Hollywood Life, “She tweets this stuff pretty often, sounds like sound life advice.”

In any case, we hope Demz comes back soon to share her words of wisdom with Lovatics and the world again soon!

Demi Lovato Sips Coffee + Reflects on Rehab on New Year’s Eve

Demi Lovato used to party hard — a little too hard. Now that the starlet has spent time in rehab and recovery, she’s getting used to a much cleaner, calmer lifestyle, and New Year’s Eve was no exception. The ‘X Factor‘ judge rang in 2013 not with champagne, but with java!

“Two years ago, I watched the ball drop on TV in rehab and cried my eyes out,” Lovato tweeted last night (Dec. 31). “Tonight I’m on the beach with my closest, most loyal friends,” she wrote. She added, “Sipping coffee and sharing how beautiful life is and how far we’ve come. Recovery is a beautiful thing friends. Life is good, God is great!”

Demz is no stranger to dark times, and her openness about her problems, which included bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and drug abuse, makes her a role model to many. She’s hyper aware of that fact and goes out of her way to inspire and advise her fans who may be tempted to drink from the devil’s cup on Dec. 31.

Lovato concluded with an urge to dream big and be safe to bid adieu to 2012 and welcome 2013. The ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ singer encouraged Lovatics, ”Everyone please be careful and smart tonight. NYE is about celebrating the past year and the year to come. Set goals and dream big #2013…”

Lovato added a special, specific message for her younger fans who may have felt some peer pressure to booze it up on NYE. “By the way,” she wrote, “just reminding teens out there that you don’t have to drink on NYE to have fun. Be the difference.” Demi is the difference already. It’s good to know that she practices what she preaches!

Demi Lovato Tweets Her Congratulations to Kim Kardashian + Kanye West

So cute! Demi Lovato is super excited that Kanye West and her pal Kim Kardashian are having a baby — so much so that she took to Twitter to send well wishes to the pair.

Shortly after West announced that he and K-Dash were expecting, Lovato wrote, “So happy for you @KimKardashian.. Love you SO much and I’m so excited to babysit!! Miss you girly.. Once again… SO happy for you!!! Xox” So sweet! Can you imagine having Demi as a babysitter? We’re picturing a lot of hair braiding, some candy and a lot of hairbrush karaoke.

Lovato and Kardashian go way back, even supporting charitable anti-bullying causes together.

Yeezy announced the happy news last night (Dec. 30) during his performance of ‘Lost in the World’ in Atlantic City, N.J. K.K. is said  to be roughly 12 weeks along. Considering West recently came under fire for letting his personal life with the reality superstarlet overtake his professional reputation, this can either help or hinder his comeback in terms of publicity.

Kardashian confirmed the news on her Celebuzz page today:

“It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo”

Here’s hoping she can get in good with Beyonce and Jay-Z now. Maybe their little one can have play dates with the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter!
