Premiere: Demi Lovato Releases “Heart Attack” Listen Now!!!

Demi Lovato Heart Attack Cover Promo

Demi Lovato released "Heart Attack" last night and she puts on the pop face for those that might have been expecting the first single from her new release to be a ballad like "Skyscraper" was before.

There is the auto tune on the track she got flack for on "X Factor" last season.

"I think the image of the video, I'm taking on a different look this time around. I feel like I have my own thing going, like rocker-chic sophisticated, just a different kind of fashion style this time around."

"It's incredible that I get to incorporate [fashion] with my music, and it coincides. But a lot of the music video, I think, is going to be fashion-based but also performance-based. I really just like to rock out, especially in music videos when I can just have so many times where I can perform."

"The title is just about falling in love and taking that risk. But she's terrified, and by 'she,' I mean me. But I think everyone comes to a point where they feel very vulnerable in falling in love, and that's what I'm talking about."

We are sure the video will have high production value. No word if the video will star her current flame Wilmer Valderrama.

Demi is playing it safe but the song will be a huge hit. Just don't take too much time releasing a video.-DocFB

New X Factor Judge Demi Lovato Talks Bipolar Disorder,Marriage & Dating Don’ts

New X Factor Judge Demi Lovato looks tempting on the July Cosmopolitan magazine cover which is set to hit newsstands next week.

Demi, now 19, talks openly about her bipolar disorder, when she sees herself getting married, and what types of guys she will not date.

About being diagnosed with bipolar disorder;

“I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it.”

“It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”

She also talked about where she feels she will be in her personal life;

“I want to be married with kids in 10 years.” (No word why she didn't say married to drfunkenberry in 10 years.  Sure it was an honest mistake that she left my name out is all.)

She also touched on what guys she wouldn't date;

“I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.” 

Hmm.  Wonder if Demi has a sweet spot for guys with blue eyes.

We know others have been harsh on Demi being an X Factor judge and an afterthought like L.A. Reid but we know better.  We are glad that Cosmo is putting the shine on Demi and we are also proud of her talking about her issue of bipolar disorder and sharing what she is going through.-DocFB

American Idol Finale Underwhelms, Much Like This Season

idol


Leave it to the judges to save the show on the American Idol finale as Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler along with his band Aerosmith to make the show somewhat watchable.

It was obvious after Tuesday's show that Phillip Phillips was going to be the next American Idol. Maybe if Jessica Sanchez was able to perform with Jennifer Holliday on Tuesday's show, she would have made it more interesting.

Chaka Khan dazzled with her very skinny self and Neil Diamond showed that he can still dress sharp and bring his own style to the show.

There was a tribute to Robin Gibb that was somewhat off key.  A tribute for Donna Summer that was to feature Sheila E. never made it to live air.  Guess there just wasn't time after an on air proposal from former Idol castoff's Ace and a girl with a nice backside.

The finale underwhelmed like it did for most of the season.  We were not talking about the performances, aside from Jessica Sanchez being "saved" weeks ago.  Nope.  We focused on Jennifer Lopez's dresses and some overobsessed on her make up.  We looked for what Steven would say.

We never had that shining moment.  We had a moment when Sanchez did "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston earlier in the season.  To show how much this season lacked, they had Sanchez sing the song again last night.

The American Idol Finale used to pull in Super Bowl numbers with special guests and a few surprises.  There were no surprises.  Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler made it bearable last night but not "must see" at all.

So, expect Jennifer to get her $25 million plus.  Expect Tyler to pull in $12 million and to see them next year.  The thing is, unless the talent improves, something has to change on Idol.

Somewhere, Simon Cowell is scheming.  If the judges of American Idol are stealing the show, his judges will do more than that.  With Britney Spears signed on and up and comer Demi Lovato there as well, it makes "must see tv" for X Factor.

The reason?  The talent pool on X Factor was much better than Idol's this year.  Simon knew his show needed improvements and fast.  Hiring Spears and Lavato gets them age groups that Idol no longer has.

Idol had to remind us about Kris Evans and Taylor Hicks last night.  They even took credit for Adam Lambert (Not an Idol winner) hitting number 1 knocking off Carrie Underwood, who was an Idol winner.

The Voice isn't dominating yet although the talent pool on that show was better than Idol this season.  Simon Cowell knows Idol dropped the ball and he intends to pick it up and not give it back.

What did you think of the Idol Finale last night?-DocFB

Will Britney Spears & Demi Lovato Shine On X Factor?

So the worst kept secret in Hollywood is out; Britney Spears & Demi Lovato are your new X Factor judges, replacing Nicole Sherzinger and Paula Abdul. Still no word on who is replacing Steve Jones.

Over a month ago we talked about Britney's millions to judge on X Factor, $15 million to be exact, where there were others wanting to join the panel, including most vocally, Chaka Khan.  They went and signed Demi Lovato instead, wanting an even younger demographic.

It has been reported that Britney was nervous at the press conference Monday and there are photos of her where she appears to have been biting her nails quite bad.  She stumbled in her speech.  Those that wanted her to fail and cause a train wreck on live TV are already salivating like birds in the desert over live meat.  Pathetic.

As for Demi Lovato, others cannot go one sentence on her without saying "who" or talking about her barely getting paid a million dollars to be on the show.  So what?  Those that read DrFunkenberry.com on the regular know all about Demi Lovato with her ginormous hit "Skyscraper" last year and the problems she has had with her weight and other issues.  People forget, she is not only judging but mentoring.  Whose to say she does not get the girls 12-18?  Her advice will be spot on as she is not so removed from that age.  She will be able to help them in ways the other judges can't.

As for L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell, let's male no mistake about it; these are Simon's girls, not Reids.  Ahhh, L.A., did you think we would forget last year when our girl Drew covered Lovato's "Skyscraper" and you called it "an old people song" and got booed by the crowd?  Nope, we didn't forget buddy.  Chris Rene so far has had more success than Melanie so far so we will give you that.  Perhaps you are not as in touch as you thought is all.  I remember you telling a friend of the site one time that he was "out of touch" but he has been proving to  you ever since that "he is the touch" buddy.

All in all, I am looking forward to X Factor.  Not for the train wreck.  Britney will have her struggles but will still prove people wrong.  For those that do not know who Demi is, we look forward to her judging, her input, and showing those Italian roots when Simon or L.A. try to put her down.

Are you looking forward to X Factor this fall?-DocFB

Demi Lovato was spotted getting one heck of a smooch from her Ex boyfriend Wilmer Valderama.

The "That 70's Show" hunk has hooked up with everyone from Demi to Lindsay Lohan....and usually, his relationships do not last that long.

Demi dated Wilmer shortly before entering rehab last year.

Demi and her people refuse to talk about the photo and the official statement released is "We're not going to comment on this."

OK, but we will.  We love Demi and hope Wilmer treats her well.   It is hard for a playboy to change his ways though......-DocFB

Demi Lovato Performs “The Star Spangled Banner” At World Series

Demi Lovato sang "The Star Spangled Banner" at Game 5 of The World Series before her Texas Rangers beat The St. Louis Cardinals.

I might be a little biased but I liked her version 3 years earlier at the Thanksgiving game for the Dallas Cowboys.

She kept it cool for the World Series version but at the Cowboy game, she killed it.  Big time.

Here are both versions.  So, which one is better?  N how soon will she be singing it before the Super Bowl?-DocFB
