The gorgeous snowy backdrop. A bathtub. Smeared, messy makeup. And Demi Lovato’s raw emotion.
The “Stone Cold” music video is incredible and will claw at your heart with how powerful it is from the second it starts until the very end.
The singer said on her Twitter account that the video was also the most emotional video she’s ever shot. And filming it in snow-up-to-her-waist Park City, Utah wasn’t the easiest either.
“I didn’t have a coat on — I just layered and layered and layered, so it was difficult,” Lovato revealed, “It was actually the hardest video I’ve ever shot. One, because emotionally it’s difficult, but two, at one point, I’m in the snow and it’s up to my waist — that’s literally how deep the snow was — so when you have like three pairs of leggings and you’re in the snow, and it’s not snow pants, I wrung my pants afterwards. It was just soaking wet because I had been in the snow for so long.”
But Park City is special to her.
“It’s like my getaway, so being able to go shoot this video in a place where I’m already comfortable, where I love it there, it was awesome,” she said, “And obviously it’s beautiful there, so we thought it was a good setting.”
“Stone Cold” is beautifully written and Lovato knew many people would feel a connection to it. Trust me, it will hit you right in the feelings no matter what you’re going through.
“Every time I write a song, or every time I do a scene when I act, I always draw from personal experience,” she explained, “I think this song, a lot of people can relate to. For me, it was therapy, but I also knew that a lot of people could relate to it — so I wrote it.”
