To help us ring in 2014 at our New Year’s Eve at Niagara Falls celebration, Demi Lovato will perform cuts off her hit album Demi alongside Celine Dion, Serena Ryder, and the Sam Roberts Band. But don’t expect Lovato to make any drastic changes to her life in the 2014 portion of our telecast—New Year’s resolutions aren’t the singer’s thing.
“I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions because I believe that every day you can have a resolution to start the next day off with,”; she tells ET Canada“s Rick Campanelli.
In addition to not making any resolutions for the new year, Lovato will also abstain from another classic New Year’s Eve tradition—overindulging. “New Year’s Eve is a night where so many people go out and just get hammered and wasted. Now I don’t do that sorta thing. Like literally, I can’t,”; says Lovato, who completed a stint in rehab in 2010 and has been sober ever since. “Now I want to look forward to life and what the next year has to offer rather than forgetting the very last part of my year that I had the night before.”;
Lovato’s New Year’s Eve performance will cap off a year of memorable TV appearances for the singer. Earlier this year, Lovato was a judge on X Factor, as well as a guest star in a six-episode arch on Glee.
On the former show, Lovato succeeded where many before her have failed—holding her own against the most intimidating man on TV, Simon Cowell. “I’m not afraid of Simon…honestly, I don’t really know why. I probably should be because he’s my boss,”; says Lovato. “We have a really good time working together and there’s a really cool understanding that whenever we mess with each other it’s all out of fun. I think slowly but surely he’s becoming more and more sensitive and he’s gonna be a great dad.”;
Regarding her appearance on Glee, Lovato says that the role allowed her an opportunity to both expand her range as an actor, as well as expand social norms. “We’re a lesbian couple, which is something I’ve never played on TV before and it’s really awesome that it’s now becoming the norm, and it’s a big step for our generation.”;
