She insists covering her ink for every role is a deal breaker
Demi Lovato says she “got hit by the acting bug” while working on Smurfs: The Lost Village. As much as she would enjoy reviving her acting career, however, the star insists her tattoos would only get in the way.
She said of her permanent ink: “I did get bit by the acting bug a little bit [working on this movie], but I think I started thinking about it the other day, about wanting to go back into acting.
I think I have too many tattoos now. You’d have to cover all my tattoos up and it would take forever.”
And the singer enjoyed working off camera by simply lending her voice for the animated flick, which saved her from worrying about makeup.
“I was able to act and not be in front of a camera, which was really nice. I didn’t have to go through hair and make up, and I didn’t have to worry about my camera angles and what not.
So, it was nice to be as animated as I wanted to be, play with my voice and to just have fun with it. It’s very exciting for me to play such an iconic character, and to be a part of such a classic and timeless franchise.”
Meanwhile, Demi has been busy working on new music and is trying to come up with a new sound.
She added to Entertainment Tonight: “I’m in the studio right now. It’s going really great. I’m just trying to figure out what sound I want to have for the next album.”
The news comes after the artist had previously revealed she wanted to take a break in 2017.
She said: “So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media … It doesn’t feel worth it anymore. I’d rather do charity work tbh [to be honest]”
