Demi Lovato has been bit by the acting bug!

ET's Sophie Schillaci caught up with the 24-year-old singer at the Sony Pictures Animation Slate presentation featuring her new movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village, where she opened up about getting back into acting -- and the one thing that's holding her back.

"I did get bit by the acting bug a little bit [working on this movie], but I think I started thinking about it the other day, about wanting to go back into acting. I think I have too many tattoos now," shared Lovato, who has at least 20 known tattoos. "You'd have to cover all my tattoos up and it would take forever."

The former Disney darling has a while to think about making her big return to the screen. For now, she's got a lot on her plate, including new music.

"I'm in the studio right now," Lovato revealed. "It's going really great. I'm just trying to figure out what sound I want to have for the next album."

But the "Stone Cold" singer might not want to change up her sound too much, as her last album, Confident, is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2017 GRAMMYs next month.

"I'm definitely getting excited," Lovato confessed of her first GRAMMYs as a nominated artist. "I haven't picked out dresses yet, but I'm getting excited."

"It's a new experience for me," she continued. "I've never been nominated, so I'm just grateful and that's all I'm excited about, just being there and being in the company of such talented, incredible singers."

While Lovato spends the next few weeks picking out her GRAMMY look, the singer says not having to worry about her outfit was one of the perks of playing Smurfette in Smurfs: The Lost Village.

"I was able to act and not be in front of a camera, which was really nice. I didn't have to go through hair and makeup, and I didn't have to worry about my camera angles and what not," she said. "So, it was nice to be as animated as I wanted to be, play with my voice and to just have fun with it."

"It's very exciting for me to play such an iconic character, and to be a part of such a classic and timeless franchise," she added.

Smurfs: The Lost Village is in theaters April 7.
