Demi Lovato may be as famous as they come, but stars, they say, are just like us. After spending one too many months cooped up during the early days of quarantine, the award-winning singer-songwriter and actor felt ready for a new home in Los Angeles that checked all the boxes. So, as a real estate frenzy was taking over the country, Lovato was also in the midst of a pandemic house hunt.
With six bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread across 8,500 square feet, this Studio City modern farmhouse provided the blank canvas that Lovato had always dreamed about. Another bonus was the theater and, of course, the backyard swimming pool. “I love the outdoor space,” she explains over Zoom. “I also loved that it had everything that I needed—there were a lot of houses that were beautiful, but there wasn’t [another] house that could have a room for glam, a room for my fittings, a room for my studio… Also, the vibe was really beautiful, and I just fell in love with it when I saw it.”
It was here that Lovato conceptualized Holy Fvck, her eighth full-length album with Island Records. It’s a culmination of the 30-year-old’s rebirth and also marks a return to her rock and pop-punk roots. Designing this house was a process that paralleled that personal journey. This time around, Lovato wanted every inch of the space to fully embody her personality—and the sense of fluidity that continues to shape her identity.
