Demi Lovato ‘Stoked’ About Missy Elliott, Timbaland Collabo

31 08 2011

Demi Lovato is ready to launch the next phase of her music career. She dropped her moving ballad “Skyscraper” earlier this summer and now fans are ready to hear what else the singer has up her sleeve when she releases her album Unbroken in September.

While the album will feature a number of collabos with artists like Jason Derülo, Iyaz and Dev, one track in particular, “All Night Long,” features two of urban radio’s biggest ’90s superstars, Missy Elliott and Timbaland. Last week, Lovato spoke to MTV News and told us that working with the legendary duo, who helped shape the careers of singers like Aaliyah, couldn’t have been more of a dream come true.

“I was so stoked when I went into the studio. I was working with Timbaland, and Missy was there, and she was like, she heard one of the songs and she asked if she could rap on it,” Lovato recalled about their July recording session.

“And I was like, ‘Of course, that’s not even a question.’ And she did, and she killed it.”

According to Lovato, the party track is pretty much the polar opposite of “Skyscraper,” showing off a whole new side of the 19-year-old. “The song that Missy and I did together, Timbaland’s actually on it, too, and it’s fun,” she said. “It’s about staying up all night long and singing it to the boy that you like, and it’s flirty and fun and it’s not too grown-up, but it’s grown-up enough.”

Lovato has already started making the rounds to promote the upcoming album, including a fan meet-and-greet in Los Angeles last week and a performance at Perez Hilton’s pre-VMA party. She went on to present Best Collaboration at the VMAs on Sunday night.

Next month, Lovato will play two shows, one each in New York and one in Los Angeles.

The 2011 NCLR ALMA Awards announced Wednesday that pop star and actress Demi Lovato will perform a bilingual version of her newest single, “Skyscraper,” on the awards show airing live Sept. 16 from 8 to 9 p.m. ET on NBC. Two more performers have yet to be named by the event’s producers.

“We have Demi Lovato peforming her hit single, ‘Skyscraper,’ in English and Spanish,” one of the event’s producers and co-host, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, tells reporters on a press call.

“[It] is so exciting,” she continues. “Because it was number one on iTunes, she is one of our own, and she came up with the idea of singing partly in Spanish.”

Lovato is also nominated for Favorite TV Actress — Leading Role in a Comedy at this year’s event. The event’s presenters include Jessica Alba, Benjamin Bratt, Eva La Rue, Mario Lopez, and Naya Rivera.

“We just have really great participation this year,” Longoria says.

George Lopez will co-host with Longoria on the awards show, which honors the work of Latinos in entertainment.

Get Ur Good On Blog: Blessings in a Backpack Colombia

30 08 2011

While I was on tour in South America, I visited the Blessings in a Backpack program in Bogota, Colombia. My relationship with Blessings began in 2008, when I started my own school feeding program in Kentucky; feeding hundreds of children each year. I believe strongly in how Blessings improves children’s lives, so I wanted to speak with the Bogota government leaders and demonstrate how important it is to help children in their community and encourage them to succeed in school so they can have better futures. I really loved meeting the kids and telling them how important their educational success is to me. Take a look at my pictures from the trip!

Let me know what else you want to see here on Get Ur Good On! How can at YSA and I make it easier for you to make a difference?
