Happy 29th birthday, Demi Lovato!

We're celebrating the pop star's big day with a round-up of their achievements this year.


Happy birthday Demi Lovato! The pop star turned 29 today, and we’re celebrating by looking back on the incredible year they’ve had. Since 2021 has already proved itself to be a huge one for Demi, here’s a roundup of just some of their impressive achievements over the past 12 months.

OK Not to Be OK

Demi kicked off their 28th year by releasing a brand new single with a special message. They teamed up with Marshmello and dropped ‘OK Not to Be OK’ on 10th September 2020 to commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day. The mental health anthem was in partnership with the Hope For The Day suicide prevention movement and partly inspired by Demi’s own personal struggles.

Directly called out the President

Demi committed to inspiring political change with the surprise release of their song ‘Commander in Chief‘ in October. The outspoken track saw them continue to use their voice for good by directly appealing to the President and criticising his actions regarding racial injustice and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hosted the People’s Choice Awards


On 15th November 2020, Demi took to the stage and hosted the People’s Choice Awards for the first time. They killed their hosting duties in style with an incredible five outfit changes – each outdoing the previous look.

Performed at Biden’s Inauguration

Demi was one of many artists who lent their talents to the celebration of the President’s inauguration in January 2021. They performed a stunning cover of Bill Withers’s ‘Lovely Day’ as part of the ‘Celebrating America’ event.

Dancing with the Devil documentary

Following 2012’s Stay Strong and 2017’s Simply Complicated, Demi released their third documentary titled Dancing with the Devil in March. The intimate four-part YouTube series saw Demi be more vulnerable than ever and open up about her near-fatal overdose in 2018.

Dancing with the Devil music video

Three days after the documentary release, Demi premiered the music video for their new single with the same name. The inspiring song details their road to recovery, with the harrowing video recreating scenes from the night of their relapse.

Dancing with the Devil … the Art of Starting Over

On 2nd April 2021, Demi released their seventh studio album Dancing with the Devil … the Art of Starting Over. The record features collaborations with Ariana Grande, Noah Cyrus and Saweetie and Demi described it as the “most cohesive project” they’ve ever made. It debuted at Number 2 on both the UK Album Charts and the Billboard 200.

4D with Demi Lovato


Demi created her first ever podcast! 4D with Demi Lovato began rolling out weekly episodes on 19th May and continues to do so. Each week they host conversations with special guests about identity, creativity, activism, philanthropy and beyond.

Came out as non-binary

On the same day as their first podcast episode, Demi publicly came out as non-binary and revealed they were officially changing their pronouns to they/them. The announcement made headline news around the world, raised awareness and encouraged conversation around gender identity. We’re so proud of Demi for living their truth.

The Demi Lovato Show

Demi launched her first ever chat show in July with The Demi Lovato Show. The Roku original series consists of 10-minute episodes with Demi interviewing guests on topics including activism, feminism, gender identity, sex and body positivity, mental health, and even interplanetary visitors.
