I chose to make this album more R&B because it’s something that I haven’t done before and I just really wanted to experience what it would be like.
Demi also talked about the sound of Unbroken, her goals, and her favorite singers.
About the R&B inspiration on her new album:
I chose to make this album more R&B because it’s something that I haven’t done before and I just really wanted to experience what it would be like. I don’t know if it necessarily best represents who I am so I don’t know if I’d do it again on the next album, but you never know. Sometimes I go into an album prepared to record say a pop album and it comes out pop-rock, so you just never know what can happen!
About going back to acting:
I definitely want to go back into acting at some point, but right now it’s not my top priority. I’ve really just been focused on performing, and making music is my number one passion. Maybe in a little while I’ll go back to television or movies but for right now I just want to focus on music.
About Twitter and the people she follows:
I follow people that I find really interesting or people that I’m friends with. Everyone that I follow I think I’ve probably had some sort of encounter with, except for Britney Spears, but you have to follow Britney Spears! I’m really thankful for twitter because it’s almost like a direct line to your fans - you can tweet something and it’s instantly put out into the world in front of 6 million of your fans. I love it. I think it’s a great way to communicate with your fans.
About the success female pop stars have right now:
I don’t really put myself up there with artists like Katy Perry or Rihanna. I still feel like I’m working really hard to get there. Hopefully one day I’ll be at their level, but for right now I’m content with where I am. But of course I still want to achieve those kind of goals and have those aspirations.
About the British singers she admires the most:
I love James Morrison. He’s one of my favourite musicians. I also love Corinne Bailey Rae, and Amy Winehouse of course was so incredible, but I think Adele is my favourite.
About her musical influences:
Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera were really my two main influences growing up, but thanks to my mom I also had a lot of other, older influences like Motown and stuff like that. I loved Billie Holiday and Aretha Franklin.
