UPDATE 9/9/2013 6:40 p.m. (PT)
A cover of Demi Lovato's forthcoming book has been released! The blue, white, and black cover features a windswept Dems and a flock of birds (not unlike her tattoo of the same style). If we judged books by their covers, we'd say this one is a bestseller for sure.
ORIGINAL STORY 9/9/2013 3:09 p.m. (PT)
Demi Lovato is at it again! The X Factor 2013 judge and super-inspirational pop star has been blowing up our radio stations with some of the best songs of the year, and exploding our hearts with her can-do attitude. So, what’s next for the talented songstress? A book, of course.
The 21-year-old has been tweeting up a storm with the hashtag #StayingStrongMonday for the last week, and this morning, September 9, she finally let us in on the meaning behind the trending topic.
"I'm so excited to finally let you know what the big news was," the X Factor judge says in a Keek video to her fans. "I will be releasing a book called Staying Strong.” Way to guerrilla market your book title and get it into everyone’s heads already, Dems! So, what exactly is this book — A story about how to deal with the Simon Cowells in your life? Lessons on making it in Hollywood and beyond? Not quite.
Turns out, it’s more life lesson than story time, but we're in no matter what. "One of the things that has helped me in recovery is taking every day one day at a time and I'm a firm believer in starting out the day right with an inspirational quote and sort of a morning meditation. So I've put together 365 of my favorite quotes and a little morning meditation for everybody."
"It's just something that I'm excited about and I hope you all like it and I hope that it inspires you to be staying strong," she finished explaining of the inspiration for the inspirational book.
Ooh, that's rad that we could be reading the same quote as Demi each day — and not just on Twitter, where she frequently gives pep talks 140 characters at a time. We've always been supes jealous of the young’uns she mentors on The X Factor, especially since we consider her our own personal guru already.
The book will be released on November 19, but preorder is available now! Will you buy it?
