Playing Demi Lovato on Possible Eminem Collaboration: ‘I Can Relate to Him on Being in Recovery’

Demi Lovato is hard at work on her fifth studio album.

Her last album, Demi, was released nearly two years ago and featured catchy pop hits like “Heart Attack” and “Neon Lights” – but this time around, the 22-year-old starlet will be showcasing a different side of herself.

“This year, it's super important to me that I embrace who I am as an artist and to become more authentic to who I am,” Demi tells ETonline in a new interview. “I want to release music that is different, that I've never done before... and that showcases who I am and what I can do vocally. I’m excited to explore with different sounds which is what I’m doing in the studio right now and to see what comes about.”

Demi, who shared an Instagram with a sweet message to Nicki Minaj last week, and is close with Nick Jonas wasn't opposed to the idea of collaborating with these two artists.

“I don’t know! You never know…” she teased before revealing who her other dream collaborations are.

“Kelly Clarkson, duh!” she joked, referencing Kelly’s recent claims that everyone usually says no” when she asks to collaborate with them. “And, I would love to work with Eminem actually… I can relate to him with being in recovery and things like that so I think we could make something awesome together.”
