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.
