Soul Talks to Demi Lovato
October 12, 2015
DEMI LOVATO is dropping CONFIDENT — her 5th studio album — on Friday, and we’re helping her celebrate with six special rides this week! The superstar talked to us about what inspired her latest songs, why she loves tapping it back at SoulCycle, how struggles have made her stronger, and more…
Your new album is called "Confident" and features a song by the same title. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration through life experiences. This album is really personal and each song was written from the heart.
At SoulCycle, we often say that struggles make us stronger. How have the challenges you've faced made you stronger?
I believe every task life throws you, that you might struggle at, will only build you to be a stronger individual.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
The best piece of advice I have ever received is just to be yourself. You are amazing so why try to be anyone else?
What advice would you give to your 16-year-old self?
I would tell myself that I am beautiful inside and out.
Do you have a mantra that motivates you?
You are beautifully and wonderfully made.
What first brought you to SoulCycle?
Someone from my team brought me when we were in NY last year. He’s friends with [Senior Master Instructor] Stacey Griffith and she introduced me to what SoulCycle was and I was instantly hooked.
What was your first ride like?
I remember it was just me and my team and we all found ourselves singing along to the music and having a blast while getting a killer workout.
Now that you’ve been riding for awhile, how has SOUL impacted you?
I fell in love with SoulCycle the first time I went. When I went on tour, I had a SoulCycle bike with me so I could cycle daily and incorporate it into my fitness regimen on the road.
What is your favorite way to unwind?
I love to end my day by playing with my puppy and sometimes sneaking in some cardio.
Describe your perfect day.
My perfect day would be to start with a good breakfast and a great workout. Then I would spend the day hanging out with friends and family. I would definitely sneak in some crime shows and maybe a hike!
