The Big News
Last week we ran into the audiophonic juggernaut that was the new Selena Gomez record, and this week the new Demi Lovato set, Confident, her fifth release and first since 2013. What a treat! I’m sooo excited OMG! I can’t wait to see who she’s collaborated with, is it Drake or… ok ok, I’ll stop. Y’all know I have no idea what a Demi Lovato is. Something called Joship Girl calls the single “Confident” “an amazing mixture of a Christina Aguilera “Burlesque” number and a Jessie J song, only without Jessie J’s over singing and arrogance.” I guess that’s a good thing.
