Demi Lovato is giving Lovatics what they want on "Tell Me You Love Me" tour

Eric Ray DavidsonFor her upcoming Tell Me You Love Me tour, Demi Lovato is getting fans involved more than ever.

On Wednesday, she announced she’ll have group “therapy sessions” for a fans ahead of each concert, in partnership with CAST Centers, the mental health treatment center she co-owns. But in addition to that, she’s also been letting her Lovatics pick the tour’s set list.

Demi put out a call to fans on Twitter recently, writing, “I hate it when fans are unhappy with the set list...help me put it together!! What do y’all definitely want to hear?”

She got a lot of suggestions -- some of them unexpected.

“A couple songs have surprised me and I've actually made some edits in the set list, so going back and changing some things, [and] adding more from the new album Tell Me You Love Me,” Demi tells ABC Radio.

In addition to planning her tour, which kicks off February 26, Demi is also showing her support for fellow artists -- in particular Camila Cabello, whom she helped discover while a judge on The X Factor. Camila's solo album and her single, "Havana," both hit number one on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts, respectively.

“I'm definitely really proud of her,” Demi says. “You know, I've known her since she was really young on X Factor and Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid and I and Britney [Spears] put her in Fifth Harmony and now she's branched out into her own career and I think it's incredible.”

And as for those rumors that Demi might do a follow-up to her YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated, she would only tease, "Well, you'll just have to wait and see!"

SZA says "anxiety" made her believe that her Grammy-nominated debut album "sucked"

Top Dawg Entertainment/RCA RecordsSZA's debut album Ctrl has scored her five Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist and another for Best Urban Contemporary Album. 

But the "Love Galore" artist tells the New York Times that due to her anxiety, she was convinced that the album "sucked."

She adds that when she went on Twitter and threatened to quit music while recording the album, she "just wanted to hurry up and fail."   

Thankfully, her label intervened and scheduled the album's release date.

Even now, with her Grammy nods, SZA still holds a bit of self-doubt, which she describes as "dysmorphia," and says that if she does win a Grammy award, "the dysmorphia would really be hitting a peak."   

Generally, "dysmorphia" is described as the obsessive idea that some aspect of one's own self is severely flawed.

But interestingly, SZA is confident about one thing: being "loud."

"A lot of black women get that rap, 'You're loud, and unsavory, or crass or abrasive,'" she notes. "But I feel like that [bleep] is beautiful as hell."  

Fans will be able to see if SZA wins big at this year's Grammys when the awards show airs live from New York's Madison Square Garden on January 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET on CBS. 

She'll also be performing at the star-studded music event.

Fall Out Boy's "M A N I A" battling for #1 spot on "Billboard" album chart 

ABC/Paula LoboFall Out Boy's new album M A N I A  is set for a chart battle on the top of the Billboard 200.

The publication reports that the seventh studio effort from the Chicago pop-punks could sell between 105,000 to 110,000 equivalent album units, which might be good enough for a #1 debut on the tally.

M A N I A's main competition for the top spot? The soundtrack to The Greatest Showman, the musical film starring Hugh Jackman. That album, which has already spent two weeks atop the Billboard 200, is also expected to sell in the 105,000 to 110,000 units range.

If M A N I A does pull out ahead of The Greatest Showman, Fall Out Boy will have a total of four number-one albums under their belts.  They previously topped the Billboard 200 with 2015's American Beauty/American Psycho, 2013's Save Rock and Roll and 2007's Infinity on High.

Fall Out Boy will kick off a summer North American headlining tour in support of Mania August 29 in Uniondale, New York.

A two-disc, 180-gram vinyl LP titled The Best of The Grateful Dead Live, Volume 1 featuring the first part of the CD compilation, will be released at the same time, while Volume 2 will be issued at a later date.

The album kicks off with a rendition of "St. Stephen" from a February 1969 concert at San Francisco's Fillmore West that first appeared on Live/Dead, and ends with rendition of "So Many Roads" from a July 1995 show at Chicago's Soldier Field, previously released on the 1999 So Many Roads box set.

When the two finally get caught, the girl lets her boyfriend escape, and she faces the cops alone.

Kygo kicks off his Kids in Love tour on February 5 in Helsinki, Finland. After wrapping dates in Europe, he heads to the U.S. in May for four dates in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and Boston.

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds stars in new anti-smoking ad airng during Grammys

ABC/Image Group LAImagine Dragons are up for two awards at this Sunday night's Grammys, but lead singer Dan Reynolds will be making an additional appearance during the show...in an anti-smoking ad.

As Billboard reports, Dan appears in an ad that will air during the Grammy telecast.  It's produced by truth, the largest youth smoking prevention campaign.  The clip focuses on the fact that Big Tobacco specifically targets lower-income families, and genetically engineers tobacco to be addictive.

In the ad, Dan says, "They should be ashamed of themselves. It has to stop."

Speaking to Billboard, Dan calls Big Tobacco's methods "heartless," noting, “They’re taking someone who is already set up to have a difficult life ahead of them, and putting them back even 10 steps further."

Reynolds says he's speaking out because he thinks musicians can make a big impact on their fans.

"I’m down for everything else with rock and roll -- the spirit of it, the sex of it, I love everything about [it], except the drug use," he tells Billboard. "And cigarettes seem to go hand in hand with rock and roll aesthetically, and this needs to change. This needs to stop.”

At Sunday night's Grammys, Imagine Dragons are up for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for "Thunder," and Best Pop Vocal Album for their latest disc, Evolve.  The show airs Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. ET, live on CBS.

Lego House(s): Ed Sheeran now owns four adjoining homes in his British village 

Greg WilliamsThey might as well rename it "Sheeranville:" Ed Sheeran has purchased four houses next door to one another in the Suffolk, England village where he lives.

According to the Daily Mail, Ed first purchased a home in the area for more than a million dollars in 2012.  At the same time, he bought another property for around $640,000.  He then bought another four-bedroom house in September of 2016 for well over a million dollars, and then snapped up a bungalow on the other side of his driveway this past October. 

Ed's now having the properties renovated.  The newly-engaged singer will certainly have enough room if he wants to start a family right away with his fiancee, Cherry Seaborn.

A local resident tells the Mail, "Ed is a super guy and really friendly. He is just a down-to-earth Suffolk boy at heart -- so who can blame him for wanting to settle down here? It is a lovely part of the world. He's bought all the properties next door. I guess it means that there is nobody to complain if he plays his music too loudly."

According to the Daily Mail, Ed plans to build two underground entertainment rooms -- a screening room and a music room -- which will be connected to his house by an underground tunnel. Those rooms will also be linked to one of the other properties, which he's converted into a private pub. 

Last year in an interview, Ed said, "There’s an underground tunnel to get [to the pub] that you can close off. So if I have a party, everyone goes in the pub and no one can get in the house, so you get no one raiding the cupboards or smashing anything."

Mark E. Smith, frontman of British post-punk band The Fall, dead at 60

Shirlaine Forrest/WireImageMark E. Smith, frontman of the prolific and influential U.K. post-punk band The Fall, died this morning at his home. He was 60.

Smith's passing was announced via a Facebook post from the Fall's manager Pam Vander, who noted that a more detailed statement about his death "will follow in the next few days."

Smith had battled a number of ailments during the past year, including throat, dental and respiratory issues that forced him to cancel U.K. shows in November 2017 and a U.S. tour earlier last year.

Smith formed The Fall in 1976 and was the only constant member in the group, which underwent frequent lineup changes. The band released more than 30 studio albums over the years, and scored a few hits on the U.K. indie charts during the early 1980s, including "Totally Wired," "The Man Whose Head Expanded" and "Kicker Conspiracy."

The Fall even broke into the top 40 of the U.K.'s pop singles chart twice, in 1987 with "There's a Ghost in My House" and 1988 with a cover of The Kinks' "Victoria."

The Fall's edgy, guitar-driven sound was highlighted by Smith's nasal, slurred spoke-sung vocals and cryptic lyrics. The group is considered to be an influence on many alternative-rock acts, including Sonic Youth, Pavement and Guided by Voices.

The band's released its most recent album, New Facts Emerge, in July 2017.
