A few days after releasing her eighth studio album, Demi Lovato said she wants to start a family on August 22.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lovato shared some accomplishments about her life and her music-making process.
A few days after celebrating her 30th birthday, the “29” singer was thrilled to be authentic herself, saying, “It feels so good to be completely authentic in what makes me happy, to perform and sing, and I I’m just really, really excited about it.”
Her latest studio album “Holy Fvck” shows a side of Lovato that she has always wanted to show fans and audiences. “Holy Fvck” presents such a contrast to his previous album “Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over”, released the year before.
“I went back to my roots and I don’t perform in leotards and stilettos anymore, you know, I try to be someone that I thought people wanted from me,” she told AND.
“Now I can just be myself — my genuine, authentic self — and perform the songs that I want to perform.”

A new and real Lovato
Turning 30 and releasing an album that speaks to her soul, Lovato has reflected on her 20s and the possibilities of her future now that she’s learned to kiss herself.
“I really understood who I was […] “I say that a lot, every time I get older, but it’s like I’ve never felt so confident and grounded,” the ‘Cool For The Summer’ singer said.
Asked about her to-do list, she says it’s no longer things like jumping out of a plane – which she’s done before – but more about family, “Things like having a family are really important. for me […] It is the stuff of life.”
Self love and acceptance
Lovato has struggled with her mental health and substance use, taking trips to rehab in the past. But it looks like she’s finally on the road to recovery.
“I’ve been through a lot, you know, and I’m really proud of myself. And sometimes I look in the mirror and just say, ‘I’m so proud of you. You’re doing great, and I love you,’” she said.
In addition to a new album, Lovato also has a new beau. She was spotted celebrating her 30th birthday with Jute$, a day after confirming their relationship.
Back in May, Lovato spoke about becoming a parent: “I don’t know. I really wanted this, and then, as I’m approaching my thirties without children, it’s kind of nice. I have maternal instincts, I love my animals, and I really thought that one day I would like to be a parent.”
Perhaps Lovato’s change of heart could be attributed to her newfound love interest. Jute$, or Jordan Lutes, a Canadian musician, also helped Lovato with the music. He co-wrote “Substance” with Lovato, a song about his struggle with addiction.
She dedicated “4 EVER 4 ME” to Jute$ and he also seems to be in love with the singer as well as he called himself the “luckiest schmuck in the world”.
