Demi Lovato Goes Blonde for New 'X Factor' Gig

New job, new hair color! At the FOX upfronts in New York City on Monday, Demi Lovato was announced as one of the new X Factor judges — and debuted new blonde locks, too.

Before her trip to New York, the singer popped into West Hollywood’s Nine Zero One Salon Friday night, where her hair was transformed from brunette to blonde and blonde extensions were added. According to a source, the starlet said this is the lightest her hair has ever been — and she wants to keep it this way for her upcoming tour, which kicks off in Del Mar, Calif., next month.

Last year, Lovato tried red hair temporarily, going blonde several months later and eventually returning to her natural brunette hue.

At Monday’s upfronts — where Britney Spears (pictured in a Stop Staring dress) was introduced as a new judge, too, wearing a form-fitting Stop Staring mini — Lovato expressed her excitement about the new job. “I am totally stoked to be here,” she told the crowd. “I’m excited to represent my generation and I’m ready to find the winner.”

The X Factor, which also stars Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, returns to FOX later this year.

Demi is a sweet young lady . I knew her from Grapevine , when she went to school with my daughter . She was bullied by some people . Maybe that is why she has some problems today . But guess what ? Those little B’s that made fun of her . Are probably still living in Grapevine , working behind a counter somewhere . While Demi has made something of herself.
YOU GO DEMI !

Are you kidding! Who is Demi Levato? They need professional mentors! Billy Joel, Bryan Adams even Ozzy or Alice Cooper would be better because they have talent! Budget must be slim!!
