Inside Demi Lovato’s New Talk Show
A lot has changed for Demi Lovato over the past year and a half. The songstress has been very vocal about her struggles with sobriety as well as her drug abuse. However, since her devastating overdose in the summer of 2018 — Lovato has worked diligently to reclaim her career and focus on her health.
After a stellar performance of the National Anthem at the 2020 Super Bowl, new music on the way, and her emotional single, “Anyone,” it’s clear that Lovato isn’t about to let anything stop her from her passions.
Though we’re all waiting for the vocalist’s new album, Lovato has also teased a return to TV. After appearing on some episodes of the Will & Grace reboot, Lovato is now getting her own talk show.
Demi Lovato is debuting ‘Pillow Talk’
This year, Lovato will be debuting her new talk show, Pillow Talk With Demi Lovato on Quibi. According to the show’s logline, the 10-episode series will “will feature candid, unfiltered conversations between Lovato and guests (both experts and celebrities), exploring topics such as: activism, body positivity, sex, relationships, social media, gender identity and wellness.”
Lovato is beyond thrilled about her new series. “I’ve always considered myself someone that speaks honestly about issues that face my generation,” she said in a statement. “We’re excited to bring those frank conversations to a public forum, where people can have the opportunity to relate to the topics and guests, while finding room for laughter and learning.”
We’re so excited to hear Lovato give her own perspectives on some of today’s most talked-about topics.
What is Quibi?
Quibi, which stands for “quick bites” is set to launch this April. The app will focus on short-form content with episodes that are no longer than 10-minutes. The platform was founded by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, who are not looking to compete with traditional television or cable.
“I’m going to continue to believe, and argue, and preach that Quibi is not a substitute or a competitor for television,” Katzenberg told Vanity Fair. ” Our [service] is exclusively about what you do from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on your phone. And what you’re doing today, if you’re in our core demographic of 25- to 35-year-olds, is you’re actually watching 60-70 min of YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. That growth is now a well-established consumer habit that Quibi is sailing into.”
Quibi has tons of amazing content
With an option for $4.99 per month with ads, or the ad-free version for $7.99 a month — you can snap up content that not only includes Lovato, but celebs like Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Lopez, Zac Efron, Andy Cohen, and even legendary director Steven Spielberg.
Katzenberg told Vanity Fair that there will be 7,000 pieces of short-form content. Honestly, that amount along is making our heads spin out of control. From what we know, Quibi will only be available on mobile phones — the perfect app for train rides, standing in line, and other in-between life moments.
Additionally, each series or piece of content will run on its own daily or weekly schedule.
