During “The Ralphie Show” Backstage at The GRAMMYs broadcast, Aloe Blacc spoke about the success of his new single, “The Man,” and the U.S. release date for Lift Your Spirit.
Blacc also talked about his hectic schedule and balancing family life with the success he’s currently experiencing in the U.S. after hit singles “Wake Me Up” and “The Man.”
Between scoring another hit single, releasing a revealing book, and leaving “The X-Factor,” Demi Lovato lifted a lot of weight off her shoulders in 2013.
“I worked so hard last year,” Lovato recalled to “The Ralphie Show” during a chat backstage at The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards. “At the end of the year I was like, a little burnt out.”
But Lovato is turning a new page with 2014; she took most of January off to prepare for the “Neon Lights Tour.” It’s a far cry from a year in which she would pull all-nighters before national TV performances.
“I had press all day, then I had a concert,” Lovato explained of the first time she did this – coincidentally the last time she appeared on our show. “I was done at 10 p.m. I hopped on a private plane and I tried to sleep on there but it was only an hour flight. So we got in to New York, and I couldn’t sleep. So I was up for the entire day.”
Lovato’s work schedule became so overbearing that her team developed creative ways in which she could find time to sleep.
“I used to work so hard that they would prepare a bed in the back of the SUV,” revealed Lovato. “So whenever I got in to the car, there was already a bed prepared because I was not sleeping.”
The singer’s “Neon Lights Tour” begins on February 9 in Vancouver, Canada. Lovato’s supporting acts include Little Mix, Cher Lloyd, and Fifth Harmony. The trek wraps up in Indianapolis on March 30.
The Denver Broncos will battle the Seattle Seahawks in this year’s Super Bowl. Chris Daughtry wants a good game first-and-foremost. However if Daughtry has to pick a team to root for, it usually isn’t one of the two playing for the championship.
“My dad is a huge Steelers fan, so I typically go that way,” Chris told me on “The Ralphie Show.” “He went from the Redskins to the Steelers.”
Daughtry has no Pittsburgh roots, but did note that his dad began rooting for the black and yellow because he liked Terry Bradshaw. The “Waiting For Superman” singer says that if the band is free the night of February 2, they’ll get together to watch the game. Otherwise, it’s business as usual. Daughtry is in the midst of promoting the aforementioned single from his band’s latest LP, Baptized. UK tour dates are on tap, and a U.S. trek will be announced by the band soon.
Check out the rest of the interview to hear about Chris possibly working with Aloe Blacc and the one snack he always needs come gametime.
