Demi Lovato updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@demilovato) on Sunday (February 1), talking about how happy she’s been and how she plans on evolving in the coming year. The ‘Sonny With a Chance’ star tells readers:
But honestly I feel like a new person. And in the best way possible. Over the past few months I’ve really just changed my perspective on life and it’s really made me mature into a “new me”. It’s weird, I’ve even been dressing more “girly” because I’ve gained a lot of confidence in myself and my appearance. Mainly because I’ve been working out a whole bunch just staying fit and eating healthy… it feels amazing. I even have PINK nail polish on my toes which has nothing to do with confidence but I just find it weird because I haven’t worn that since like.. 8th grade… haha. But I’ve just become a brighter and happier person because I’m finally comfortable in my new home here in California, getting more time to spend with my family and I’ve been building strong and amazing friendships with new friends.
I’ve just been trying new things, for example, new hobbies and a new hair color! :P I’ve even been listening to different genres of music to try to increase my writing skills and well, just because I want to! haha. I never really listened to anything but rock but I’ve really been into like hip hop and country.. even classic R&B. The classic R&B like Aretha and Billie Holiday, have so much soul and passion in their music… it’s been inspiring me and my writing so much lately. I really want my next album to have more passion and soulful songs on it rather than “rah I hate you, you broke my heart” type of songs… haha. think more of John Mayer, or Duffy.. or even Kelly Clarkson in her bluesy days.
