Demi Lovato Will Be Singing The National Anthem At The Boxing Match, Maybe Next Time She’ll Get Her Own Fight

Demi Lovato has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the upcoming Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor on August 26. The pop star has long been vocal, and visible, about her love for the world of mixed martial arts, so it isn’t a total surprise that she would be associated with a highly anticipated fight.

Demi Lovato first started to show off her love of all things mixed martial arts (MMA) towards the end of last year.

She has made it a point to train with people who are very much involved with the upper echelons of MMA. It was even reported that the singer wanted to have a true, legitimate MMA fight. That said, it isn’t totally surprising that UFC would tap the singer to sing the national anthem.

She has put her training to the test by going against Sylvester Stallone.

Okay. Clearly, Stallone let her win but who else can say they got to rumble with Rocky?

Lovato has expressed that MMA helped her break the boredom of her traditional workouts.

“Sometimes I get really bored when I do just an hour of cardio, so sometimes I struggle with boredom,” Lovato told PEOPLE. “But that’s why I like to train MMA, because it keeps it exciting.”

She even dated BJJ black belt and MMA fighter Guilherme ”Bomba” Vasconcelos at one point.

And, quite frankly, she owned him in the gym. ?

But, the burning question is, will Lovato plug her Fabletics clothing line?

Only watching her performance will tell.

Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande Cast a Spell With Magical “Met Him Last Night” Duet

Demi Lovato teamed up with fellow superstar Ariana Grande on her new album Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over. The pop powerhouses join forces for the duet “Met Him Last Night.”

This is Demi’s first album since her hospitalization for a drug overdose.

Dancing with the Devil marks Lovato’s first album since her 2018 hospitalization for a drug overdose. As the album’s title alludes to, throughout the 19 songs she explores battling with her inner demons. In the music video for the title track, Lovato reenacts the night of her drug overdose. She and Grande come face-to-face with one of the devils in “Met Him Last Night.”

Ariana wrote “Met Him Last Night” for Demi and, fortunately, they recorded it together.

“[Ariana has] always been super supportive of me and my career, and it’s so awesome to have a friend like her in the industry,” Lovato told Apple Music about the collaboration. “She started writing this song and immediately thought of me, so when she gave it to me, I was like, ‘We should just sing this together.'”

Grande wrote “Met Him Last Night” with Stanaj, Dominican-American songwriter Xavi, and her TBHits, the producer behind “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings.” Lovato and Demi trade verses about toxic lovers that they’re hung up on.

“I seen the devil, yeah I met him last night / One conversation, now he’s spending the night,” they sing together.

The vocal power, the beautiful harmonies, and finally hearing Demi and Ariana together makes this spellbinding song all the more magical.

Lovato has a number of all-women collaborations on her Dancing With the Devil album. She also teams up with rap star Saweetie in “My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriends” and Miley Cyrus’ sister, Noah Cyrus, in “Easy.”

Demi Lovato Recreates Her 2018 Drug Overdose In New Music Video For ‘Dancing With the Devil’

As you probably know, Demi Lovato has been in the news recently for discussing her trauma, addiction struggles, and 2018 overdose in her YouTube documentary series, “Dancing With the Devil”.

The YouTube series was named after a song of the same name that describes Demi’s spiral into addiction and subsequent brush with death.

“Dancing With the Devil” starts off with words that many addicts say to themselves: “It’s just a little red wine, I’ll be fine.” But by the second verse, Lovato is mentioning “white lines” and “glass pipes” (i.e. cocaine and crystal meth).

The confessional song continues: “I was dancing with the devil, out of control/Almost made it to Heaven, it was closer than you know/Playing with the enemy, gambling with my soul/It’s so hard to say no, when you’re dancing with the devil.”

In a powerful creative decision, Demi recreated her near-death 2018 heroine overdose in the music video for “Dancing With the Devil”.

The music video for “Dancing With the Devil” starts off with Demi Lovato in a hospital bed. Lovato’s blood is filtered through various tubes. The video then flashes to Demi drinking heavily in a bar. The outfit she wears is the same outfit that she wore the night of her overdose.

For viewer’s of Demi’s documentary series of the same name, the following scenes are all too familiar. We see a faceless drug dealer pass Lovato a bag of drugs. The next scene shows Demi passed out in bed while the drug dealer looks on. From the documentary, we know that the unnamed drug dealer sexually assaulted Lovato while she was heavily intoxicated. He then left her “for dead” as she was overdosing in her bed.

The video recreates Demi Lovato’s 2018 overdose with meticulous detail.

It’s obvious that Lovato and her team put a lot of thought into the staging of this video. Savvy viewers can see that Lovato hired look-alike actors to portray all the people that were around her that fateful 2018 day.

Although all of the actors remain faceless, it’s obvious who they’re meant to be. We see people that resemble her assistant, her mother, and her sister, throughout the video. All of these people were interviewed on-camera for her documentary series. At one point, we even see first-responders attempting to resuscitate Demi while she’s OD’ing in bed.

Demi Lovato took to Twitter to confess how difficult it was to shoot a video that hit so close to home.

“Creating the music video for #DancingWithTheDevil was not the easiest shoot I’ve ever done,” she wrote. “I create my art to heal, and to inspire others. I’m here today and I’m happy you are too.”
