Demi Lovato drops new song ’29’


Demi Lovato has released her latest single, “29,” and the song is believed to be about the age difference she had with her former boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama.

The actor was 29 when he started dating Lovato, who was 17 at the time.

Lovato explained the lyrics in an Apple Music interview, saying “the song says it all”.

“When I was 29, I remember I was on vacation and I just realized I’m 29 now, and that put things into perspective. It put everything into perspective,” said Lovato. “And I’m very careful how I answer those questions because I feel like the song says it all. I don’t need to say too much, to be honest, but turning 29 was a big eye opener for me. And then going into treatment and having accomplishments led to my transformation, my release from the emotion that was put into that song.

The lyrics include: “Finally twenty-nine / Funny, like you were back then / Thought it was a teenage dream just a fantasy / But was it yours or was it mine? / Seventeen, twenty-nine.

The song apparently refers to Valderrama (now 42) and his 30-year-old wife, Amanda Pacheco.

Lovato sings, “I see you’re a collector / Yeah, you’re twelve years her senior / Maybe now it doesn’t matter / But I know better.”

In the interview, Lovato added that there was a lot of “anxiety” about the song’s release.

I just said, ‘I have to go. I have to own my truth,” she said.
