Demi Lovato covers Lil Wayne's 'How to Love' in NYC: Watch it here

When she’s not skyscraping, Demi Lovato is dealing with lower-altitude issues like, for instance, How to Love.

Saturday night found the newly revitalized teen star in a corner tryna put it together (or rather, onstage at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom) by turning Weezy’s slow-jam lullaby into a first-person confessional/uplift anthem.

“I am going to cover a song right now,” she told the crowd. “It’s by a rap artist, not a rap song, and it’s on the radio right now. Do you guys know what it is?” You do, Music Mixer! Because we just told you. But watch it here, after the jump:

She wears the song pretty well as her own, and judging from her smiles, happily too — which may be as much a testament to “Love”‘s instantly singable hook as to its universal themes. (Wayne as poet laureate of the human condition: who knew?)

Readers, are you a fan of the cover? And what do you think of Lovato’s new album, Unbroken, which gets a B+ in the EW issue on stands now?

    Too bad she had to pick a song from the worst rapper that has ever existed in all recorded history.

      Ummm Hes THe BEST RAPPER ALIVE Stupid

      • NonEntity

        On what evidence do you base that baseless statement on? Did you know that the “best” rapper alive has been scientifically proven to appeal to the stupid? Perhaps that’s why you have that opinion.

    She’s clearly better without the Jo-asses. She will need to get a better song selection. I don’t think she’s made the transition from Disney quite yet.
