Hi, readers, and welcome back to Framed, the only blog that's guaranteed to be written by the hunt-and-peck-and-have-another-shot method.
It's a good method!
This week we're asking, "Who is Demi Lovato, and why is she our guest artist?" And the answers are: (1) Darned if we know, and, (2) Darned if we know. But we're willing to learn!
(Pause while we read Wikipedia entry.)
OK, so that's who she is! It turns out that Demi's a singer, a songwriter, an actress, and, in general, a good and talented person. A victim of bullying as a youngster, she's also a highly visible anti-bullying activist. Good for you, Demi!
And, on top of all that, she's also a judge of The X-Factor! Sort of like Lyndsey Parker!
How she finds the time to make records is beyond us, but her first three LPs (which have all hit the top five in the U.S.) have sold over 1.5 million copies. Glad to have you here, Demi!
Our video this week, " Give Your Heart A Break," is from her third LP, Unbroken. It's a good song, and the video is equally excellent. It's all about Demi trying to win back an old boyfriend, the sort of thing everyone can relate to.
Have fun, and be back again next week, when the Yuletide spirit once again comes a-callin' at Framed!
