Demi Lovato is the latest artist to be featured in BuzzFeed‘s Playing With Puppies interview series — where artists answer fan questions while, yes, playing with adorable puppies and being interrupted by those puppies, usually wanting to either chew on her or pee on her.
“How am I supposed to start answering questions?” Lovato asks in the video interview while puppies climb all over her. “You’re so cute!”
Once the distraction subsided, Lovato pulled a question from a nearby fishbowl: Can you describe your new album Tell Me You Love Me in three words? “My album in three words would be vulnerable, raw and soulful,” she answers.
The next fan question is about would release a song in Spanish in the future, which Lovato coyly answers by saying, “You will have to wait and find out, because I recorded something recently that I think you will like.”
Read a few more of Lovato’s answers and watch the full interview below:
Fan: What song on your newest album do you think is the most personal?
Lovato: “I think the most personal song on this album is either ‘You Don’t Do It for Me Anymore’ or ‘Ready for Ya.’ I think ‘Ready for Ya’ is a song that I wrote that explains a lot about a breakup that I went through.

How do you deal with a breakup?
“I deal with a break up by leaning on my closest friends, and by getting out into the dating scene again. I think that it’s important not to dwell on certain things and just to get back out there and have fun.”
Social media can be really tough on a person mentally! Any tips on staying sane and confident in a world where every photo is Facetuned and Photoshopped?
“I think that learning to love yourself is very important. And learning to love yourself in the skin that you’re in is important. It can be difficult at times, and of course the pressures are high. But I think that as long as you love yourself that’s all that matters.”
What has been your favorite fan interaction or experience?
“I haven’t had a favorite fan experience because all of them are so special. I think anytime a fan tells me that I’ve saved their life is extremely meaningful, and it just matters so much to me. It’s kind of unfathomable, so it really means a lot.”
What’s the funniest prank you’ve ever pulled, and who did you pull it on?
“The funniest prank that I ever pulled on somebody was I pulled a prank on my security guard, and in Vegas it’s legal to hire a lady of the night to make surprise visits for somebody. So, I did that and i sent her to my security guard’s room, and told her to be very forceful and make herself enter the room. And she did just that, and he was very startled and I’m glad that he didn’t keep her.”
Demi’s new album Tell Me You Love Me is available now, and catch her documentary DEMI LOVATO: SIMPLY COMPLICATED when it premieres tomorrow (Oct. 17) on YouTube. All the puppies in the video are available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America.
