Bella Thorne attends the 20th Annual Race To Erase MS Gala "Love To Erase MS" at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on May 3, 2013 in Century City, California.
Living up to my “First for pop gossip” tagline once again, I, VanHudge, am phresh out of the exclusive Universal Music listening party for Demi Lovato’s new album DEMI. After hearing the album, I’m absolutely certain that this is the year of Demi. The album drops in New Zealand on May 10th and Worldwide on May 14th, but you can read all about the album right now!
The listening party itself was a bit basic, bless their souls. As we arrived at the Universal Music NZ Headquarters in Auckland, our phones were taken off us (it was hard not being able to tweet all the shade I was thinking), and we walked into a room with a few posters of Demi on the walls and some purple streamers and balloons stuck up around the place. Cute. We were a little disappointed that they were just playing MTV Hits as we waited – they could have at least played some of Demi’s older music or even fellow Hollywood Records artists (Because let’s face it, they need all the promo they can get).
We were invited to grab something to drink, and of course I opted for a Red Bull #SoberIsSexy. The Umusic staff started out with a few spot prizes, and some of the attendees couldn’t contain their excitement – one particularly excited fan told his friend “I hope I don’t throw up” – a bit on the nose there, buddy. They then took us into the board room where we watched a short video message from Demi herself, congratulating us for making it to the listening party, and telling us to “enjoy the pizza”. (She also said she’d love to come to New Zealand soon, but I’m sure she’ll be doing another three South American tours before she makes it here.)
The second single from DEMI is Made In the USA, and I can tell you right now, this one is going to be huge. Demi’s vocals are just as powerful and perfect as every track she does, but what really sets this track apart is the upbeat pop-perfection production. Made In The USA has an enormous chorus, and it definitely has the potential to be Demi’s biggest hit yet. The track also sets the tone for the rest of the album: big pop tracks with strong beats and soaring vocals.
Another stand out track was Neon Lights, a bona-fide club track that I know I’ll be dancing to for months. Neon Lights is killer electro-pop track, and the bridge builds up to an addictive chorus. I am READY to hear this in the clubs, like right now!
Without the Love and Nightingale were slower tracks, but they still had a powerful beat that kept the energy of the album going.Two Pieces was another one of the slower tracks, and this one was way more chill, and a very sweet song. I couldn’t help but think it sounded a little bit like a better version of A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.
In Case was giving me some Bridgit Mendler vibes, which isn’t surprising given that it was co-written by Bridgit’s collaborator Emanuel Kiriakou. The song still fit with the rest of the album though, and Demi’s vocals were as good as ever.
Really Don’t Care was a really fun track. Basic as hell, but fun. It was upbeat, with plenty of angst, and then of course there was Cher Lloyd’s rap. Demi could have had anyone join her on this track – I don’t think Cher added anything too special to the album – but you know, it was a solid track and I still enjoyed it.
Fire Starter was a little more serious, but Demi was still serving up that strong driving beat that I was LIVING for. Next up was Something That We’re Not– a more upbeat pop-rock track that had PLENTY of cowbell. This track wouldn’t be out of place on a One Direction album, which leads me to believe that Demi was getting some one-D when she was recording this one!
Never Been Hurt and Shouldn’t Come Back were two more strong tracks that had the whole room going. There were some Kelly Clarkson/Taylor Swift vibes in these last few tracks – Demi even putting her own spin on Taylor’s angsty speaking bit in We Are Never Getting Back Together.
Finally came Warrior. This track was devastatingly perfect. A kind of sequel to Skyscraper and For The Love of a Daughter, Warrior was a piano ballad where Demi sang about overcoming all the negativity in her life and rising above it. I was teary eyed the whole way through. The chord progression in the chorus was just perfection. I could feel some Christina Aguilera influence in this song – this track is like Hurt, but with even more power, passion and emotion.
Listening to this album, I can already tell it’s going to be Demi’s biggest record yet. This album is a huge leap forward from her last album Unbroken. The sound of the album was much more consistent, and the upbeat pop songs were miles ahead of the awkward collaborations she’d done in the past (does anyone know what happened to Dev?). As a long-time Lovatic, I feel like Demi has given us an amazing album that we can all be proud to white-girl-tweet lyrics from.
I give DEMI 5/5 Studded denim jackets.

"Oz The Great and Powerful is coming to Blu-ray on June 11th!
Summary: When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot. Fame and fortune are his for the taking. That is until he meets three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting.
Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity and even a bit of wizardry, Oscar transforms himself not only into a great wizard but into a better man as well.
Bonus features include “The Magic of Oz The Great and Powerful (Second Screen Experience)”, “The Enchanting Characters and Creatures of Oz”, Bloopers, “Mila’s Metamorphosis” and “Walt Disney and the Road to Oz”."
"Singer, songwriter, actress Bridgit Mendler has been selected by MTV to be its MTV PUSH artist for the month of May.
MTV PUSH is MTV’s global promotional vehicle dedicated to bringing music fans around the world the latest talent. Using especially produced on-air video and online content, Bridgit will be heavily promoted across all MTV’s international platforms, throughout the month of May.
"I'm really excited to be MTV's International PUSH Artist for May. They’re letting me take over MTV across the globe for a whole month!" said Bridgit Mendler.
Bridgit Mendler, originally from Washington D.C., started her acting career in soap operas and films before she was given her big break in hit TV series “Good Luck Charlie”. Despite being catapulted into stardom, Bridgit’s acting success has never distracted her from her core love of music. She started songwriting at the age of 6, and in recent years made it a daily habit as a way of keeping herself focused. Bridgit is enjoying success with her Hollywood Records debut album “Hello My Name Is…” which features the hit singles "Ready or Not” and “Hurricane”. The 20-year-old co-wrote each song on the album and worked with A-list writer-producers to craft her fun, funky pop tracks. With more touring scheduled later this year and a raft of hit singles in the pipeline, this year looks set to be even bigger for Bridgit as she prepares to take the music world by storm!
MTV PUSH has fostered some of today’s best known and hottest acts with previous artists including Carly Rae Jepsen, Rita Ora, LMFAO, Jessie J, Ke$ha, Justin Bieber, Lana Del Rey, A$AP Rocky and Bruno Mars."
Demi LovatoGlobo interview via Google Translate. On today's music:'Today we have a lot of music on a night out, drink and drugs. They all annoy me too. When I do mine, I try to be different and inspire people.' On her early years:'Today I wonder if being on television so early has to do with the bullying I experienced at school. But with 12 years I was an innocent girl, I was a brat.
But as much as I zoavam school was unbelievable! Being kept buzzing to be put in my limit, and that situation has changed my life.' She urged parents to leave school and had tutors to educate at home to complete high school: 'Some times I think my life would be like if I had a little more privacy. But I'm proud of what I did. It's a great opportunity could share my story with others. And maybe help them through the same issues I had. '
On rehab: 'This is a responsibility that I take very seriously. I put a lot of pressure on myself for this. But at the same time makes me stronger. I know I make a difference in people's lives. On my bad days I look at my arms and think, 'It's okay. I'll keep working.' The reporter asks her why she need to remember to stay strong: 'I need to remind myself that I am human and that everyone can have a bad day. And now I have a responsibility to be a role model for young women and men.'
Fan: Are you and Selena still friends? 'We grew up together and have known for a long time. Nowadays we're both super busy, but I know she will always be there for me.' Fan: Do you have any dreams that have not yet done? 'I want to go to the ceremony for a Grammy award, is to sing, as a presenter or indicated. I want to be part of it.'

"Ashley Benson keeps it cool while out with a friend at Bootsy Bellows on Saturday night (May 4) in West Hollywood, Calif.
It was just announced that the 23-year-old actress’ on-screen beau, Tyler Blackburn, would be leaving Pretty Little Liars after the upcoming season for it’s spin-off, Ravenswood.
“I’m going to miss my little love bug @tylerjblackburn,” Ashley tweeted after the announcement. “Sooooo excited for ravenswood xxxxxxxx.”"
"Dolphin Digital Media has hired director Andy Tennant to helm young-adult Internet series “In Bloom” from actress-singer Ashley Tisdale, and unveiled plans for online soap “South Beach” set in Miami.
Digital studio made the announcement at CAA’s NewFronts event Wednesday in Manhattan. “We’ve raised the bar of directors working in the digital space,” Dolphin topper Bill O’Dowd said.
Tennant’s other helming credits include “Ever After” (Drew Barrymore), “Anna and the King” (Jodie Foster) and “Sweet Home Alabama” (Reese Witherspoon).
Tisdale, repped by CAA, is exec producer for “In Bloom.” Skein, comprising 10×10-minute episodes, revolves around a sister-brother high school band and each will feature an original song. Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Prods. and partner Jessica Rhoades will coproduce “In Bloom” with Dolphin and O’Dowd. Josh Uranga of Drama 3/4 Productions is also producing.
O’Dowd said he’s in talks with YouTube about distributing “In Bloom” and “South Beach,” slated to go into production in the fall. Dolphin also is approaching marketers about sponsorship and brand-integration deals.
With the 10 original songs, “In Bloom,” written by Brice Beckham and David Fickas, will be like a concept album, such as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” O’Dowd said. Tisdale has a massive online fan base, he added — 14.9 million Facebook and 9.6 Twitter followers.
Dolphin’s “South Beach” digital sudser, aimed at young multicultural and general auds, will follow in the footsteps of Prospect Park’s revivals of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” Studio will produce 10 hours of show, sliced into five 9-minute segments to run Monday-Friday for 10 weeks.
Series pivots on rivalry between fictitious music labels Lear Entertainment and Paradise Music set in the world-famous party scene of Miami. Half the cast will be Hispanic, according to O’Dowd. Dolphin also will produce 100-plus pieces of ancillary content, including music videos and recording sessions."
