Demi Lovato's 'Give Your Heart a Break' Clip Hits the Web (Video)
Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper” music video may have been all about declaring her independence, but in her latest offering, the pop star is desperately holding on to the one she loves.
In the video for her new single, “Give Your Heart a Break,” a fresh-faced Lovato pulls out all the stops to mend a rocky relationship. “The song is about not wanting to break the other person’s heart, and really letting them know that you’re not in this to play games, or to hurt them – just that you’re there to love them,” Lovato told E! News. Though the clip hit the web on Monday afternoon, the 19-year-old will appear on E! at 8 p.m. during a special titled Demi Lovato: “Give Your Heart a Break.” Fans can tune in to watch the video’s television premiere and hear about the track from Lovato herself.
“I want to put it out there and show that women can be independent on their own,” the pop star said of her video’s message. “I think that’s the best lesson that I’ve learned – to love myself before any other person.”
The video, directed by Justin Francis, opens with a serious phone argument between Lovato and her on-screen beau. After hanging up, Lovato begins reminiscing about all the happy memories and decides to gather up a duffel bag of cutesie photographs. What comes next is perhaps the grandest of RomCom gestures.
