29 is a record about the wisdom that comes with age. 🖤
From Cool for the Summer to 29, this shows she's multi genre and can do a now essential upbeat summer staple song that still slaps to a rock goddess that makes you think. I think she's only getting started.
Bobby grove smile Johnson big buck head you gone get say stop I forget lost my thought oh baby heart attack I'm dead
Baby the two and the bottom dimples you got em I'm sorry the best ones make me made I'm sorry lol
“Finally 29, 17 would never cross my mind” this line is so powerful. As an adult I could never look at a teenager like that, it’s gross
I'm 20 years old and I couldn't see a teenager that way either😖
@the brown m&m Nope thats wrong analogy. Right now there is a 30 year old that wants to get with a 17 year old. If she dont like the 30 year old she would flat out say no. If a 30 year old male can manipulate a 17 year old female, then dont you think, you would see every couple in the world with this age gap.
@nolimitation bruh it's like you would sell alcohol for a 16 year old and then say "but they wanted it"
@nolimitation she may have made the first move, she might not have. either way, she’s not in the wrong because she was the *child* what don’t you understand???
At 14, three of the girls in my class had boyfriends who were 25. It was cool, I was jealous. We were CHILDREN. It was not cool. A teenager can't see how wrong this is. I'm 37 now and am watching my 17 year old sister like a hawk.
@KentHorse wanting someone with seemingly more experience, also lack of a father figure can lead to wanting someone significantly older
@Angel D. LMAO Majority of people prefer their own age group. You people already describe older men, who prefer younger women, as predators. Now I ask again. Why do younger women like you aren't interested in their age groups?
@KentHorse that's a question for the grown men
Why weren't you interested at your own age group? Hypocrites.
Estamos contigo DEMI❤
@Ximena y sus peluches music🎤🎵 q haces tu aquí?
Y luego hablar sobre su supuesta 'depresión '....Si vas a kerer q sea real....yo lo hago y a ti igual..🙃
Cuando te conviene solamente
Can’t say I’m a Demi fan - but this is such an important song, I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up her crowning glory.
i’m not a fan of her music generally but this one is so relatable and important!
I was 17. He was 27. Lasted 3 years. 😬 I’m almost 24 now. Over the years I’ve come to realize how fucked up, predatory and controlling he was. I love Demi for speaking on this. Alot of us, when we’re young, have stumbled unknowingly into predatory relationships that at the time we didnt fully grasp what was wrong with it.
I was 16. He was 25.
Hope whatever trauma you have been through, you heal. You are very strong 💪
@Riddle's Anger Issues that’s obviously not the point. why would a 27 year old EVER consider dating a teenager? date someone closer to your own age.
@Riddle's Anger Issues it can be legal some places 18 is the legal
@Riddle's Anger Issues 17 year olds are still kids when it comes to having romantic/sexual relationships, should only be doing it with people their age. and if you don’t see that then you should be locked up
This type of music is SO her lane. Her voice has always been my absolute favorite in the industry. I absolutely love her!Wow. So sad. She’s been through so much in her life. Keep that pretty head up, Demi!
I think she wouldn't want anyone getting flack for saying "she" with ZERO disrespect behind it. If someone isn't purposely punching down on you, remember to offer them your hand and uplift instead of making rift. Like Keenan and Kel epically all told us years ago "I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes yeah!" If there is no hate, be uplifting and with understanding educate. Mind you I am a born and raised in conservative North Idaho 37 year old white hetero male saying this lol. But I have met many a fine folk of all kinds.
@Mlggirl 24 yeah she changed it so now Demi goes by all the pronouns.
@Mlggirl 24 Demi goes by they/them AND she/her now I thought? You're both right LOL
@Mlggirl 24 SHE changed her pronouns back to her
I was 13, he was 21 when we met. It’s been 6 years now (I’m 19) and I got myself out of that mess just a few weeks ago. Demi, thank you for your voice❤️ I’m doing much better now😊
i’m so sorry. and i’m so glad you are out of that now
Holy LAWD. GREAT!
He needs to be in jail. I hope youre okay
@Levi Wong 23 and 24 still kids adult legally but mentallly they are child..once they turn 25 is when their brain starts functioning. it when they really start maturing and viewing the world as adults.
I just like that she’s telling real stories.Dancing with the devil. Now 29.Good for her.Music speaks to the soul in a way words can’t.
@TimmyTurner I think she wouldn't want anyone getting flack for saying "she" with ZERO disrespect behind it. If someone isn't purposely punching down on you, remember to offer them your hand and uplift instead of making rift. Like Keenan and Kel epically all told us years ago "I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes yeah!" If there is no hate, be uplifting and with understanding educate.

@TimmyTurner not anymore she's uses (she,her/they,them) check your facts right before spreading misinformation
@TimmyTurner Not anymore
@TimmyTurner don’t be that damn person.
This song made me realize that artists like Demi, Miley and Selena may not be as huge as they used to be but they will always be remembered as our Disney girls - they literally raised a whole ass generation 💔 and as they get older, we’re approaching a time where newer artists are now taking the stage. Those 3 are the holy trinity and I am eternally grateful for their art.
@Le Styliste de X-vid yes! It's almost confusing when stuff like this is posted on recent popular music
They 3 are so real
I owe the best memories of my life to them. The most memorable Disney trios forever!
they are even bigger than they were what are you talking about
This is an excellent song about grooming. This can help people open up and talk about their experiences and the damage that can occur from predatory behavior.
I was 15 and he was 22. I didn’t learn and then it was 16 and 32. This song really hits home. Both men were in positions of power. One was a church leader and then other a coach. Years of therapy and I’m still trying to piece myself back together
I hope one day you can come forth and sell these bastards out. If they did it to you they're doing it to others and it's painful to think about
@Riddle's Anger Issues do you know wtf grooming is? It's a form of emotional and mental manipulation that predators use to make their victims think their abuse is ok and normal. Also regardless, they were a child, children don't think logically and are more naive and those predators took advantage of that and harmed op.
Hope u find peace and yourself with happiness
And why were doing that at 15-16? What was going through your mind?
The fact this is number 29 on trending for music is everything
@Fairy Saurus 😂😂😂
Funny, just like he was at the time
maybe it was intentional 😂
I was 13, he was 18, and again later I was 17 he was 23. No one spoke up for me back then, thank you for giving every women a voice to be heard.
@El Future hummm i'm 23. i don't consider myself a child LOL will i continue evolving? sure. but i am not a child, not even close. the difference between me and a 17yo is huuuuge
@HeyJudeHowAreYou 23 and 24 still kids adult legally but mentallly they are child..once they turn 25 is when their brain starts functioning. it when they really start maturing and viewing the world as adults.
@Riddle's Anger Issues teenagers can be groomers as well 🤡🤣
@Miss Scarlet That “groomer” is 17 himself.
@Cayden Harmon found a groomer yall. Telling teenagers it was their choice to be groomed 😂
As a 17 years old boy when I met my ex who is also 29.We broke up after spending 4 years in a relationship...I can really relate to this songI'm turning 22 and persuing a 17 year old would be terrifying to me.Now it's really syncing in that he fell out of love with me because I was loosing my youth and he really was into that.
😞 it's heartbreaking reading all these comments and seeing how many people were cornered and groomed at such a young age. But I'm so happy it ended and you can see it for what it was and can talk about it now. It really changes your outlook.
Finally 29, 17 would never cross my mind. Such a strong line.
I can relate to this song so much. I am 28 years old now almost 29. When i was was 16/17 i was pursued by a 28 year old man. I didn’t know better at the time cuz i felt so mature and like i knew what i was doing. I didn’t, i was a minor. But he knew what he was doing. It took me years afterwards to fully grasp what happened to me and how wrong it was. The fact that now i am the same age as he was is horrifying. The thought of ever pursuing someone that young just never even enters my mind and actually disgusts me.
I was 16, he was 32... i thought i was in love bc it was my 1st ever relationship with someone. With the time, like Demi said " thought it was a teenage dream, a fantasy, but it was yours, it wasn't mine".Idk how to feel, I'm 22 now, i don't know if i should feel abused or manipulated or something else ? Until this day, I still don't know how to feel about it.
@Andréas-Milord HENRY of course love, and I hope you have a great day as well! ☺️❤️ Even for me, like my very first boyfriend was 23 and i was like 18/19 at the time, looking back I'm like "tf i got into?" because I was pressured into one luckily it was just a teenage dream and nothing more than that. I KNOW you're gonna be great ❤️
@Commander Celeste thank you ;) you're right about that feeling. Wish you all love and a great life 💫
@Anna Jones You are very true ;) thanks for taking time to answer me, wish you the best 💛
let me help you out with this one boo. At your age right now or 10 years from now, would you date a 16 year old? You wouldn't because that person is still a child. Baby, you were groomed and was taken advantage of because you are innocent and still are, most people won't recognize that until they're much older. BUT remember my question I say to you, if you were the adult in the situation, why didn't you say no? why didn't he say no? That man didn't say no because he KNEW you weren't mentally and not yet physically more mature yet. it's not your fault, you just didn't know ❤️🤗
This song hits REALLY hard, regardless of your experience. I was only 13, the other guy about two years older, and it took me more than 10 years to accept just how awful and disgusting the experience was like for me. But once you're able to let go of all the shame and the feeling that *you* were the one responsible... it does get better. Eventually. I really hope you find your peace, man. God knows you deserve it.
This song speaks volume for so many young girls and boys that were taken advantage of by those who were older than us. Thank you for making this song, it’s absolutely beautiful
Thank you for acknowledging that even if the situation is more socially prevalent with young girl/older guy there are young boy/older woman and even young girl/older woman young boy/older man situations out there too and throw in the trans, non binary or pan and others. Lots of new gender pronouns out there that are new to the party known as life here lol. So let the old school Stonewall gays and gold star lesbians have their victory lap here for their difficult strides trials and tribulations. Along with opening the door to educating people who willingly will open their mind and heart to hearing why you choose to describe how you feel with your love. It is so new to so many people so lets all have patience and understanding. And yes, I am a straight white 37 year old North Idaho raised male saying these words that hopefully resonate with all of you, my collective and wonderful human folks.
@Lew Ballard I never found a 30-year-old men attractive when I was 15. That was an authority figure to me, an adult. Hell, I was too scared to look at anyone who was 3 years older than me or more. You slept with him? Were your pursuing him? Were you willing? I agree that the adult shouldn't pursue the minor back, but come on, if the girl initiates she is not innocent at all. Imo, both should be held accountable. Of course, the adult more so, but nevertheless.
I think about my time being 15 sleeping with someone 30 or older 🤯 I think it's common for younger ppl to be attracted to someone older but for the older person to allow it to happen and for the older person to date multiple people under 18 is messed up...like she said thought it was a teenage dream a fantasy but was it yours or was it mine??? ...
Thank you for including boys as victims!
Trueeeee😭.They know exactly how to manipulate younger people, especially teenagers who don't come from a healthy family, and who lack self-awareness, respect, and boundaries. They end up establishing co-dependent relationships or as such.
I was 16, he was 26. Didn't realize how bad it was until he texted me 6 months later telling me he missed me. Being groomed is terrifying especially when you only realize later what was happening. Wisdom does come with age.
That’s what scares me too! I didn’t even realize how wrong it was until almost a year later

I was 19 he was 40… it’s taken me almost 10 years to realize the full scope of the situation.. still healing almost 7 years later
I was 19 he was 32. Now I’m 29 and never would even think dating a 19 year old. Just now realizing how manipulative he was. We lasted 3 years. My mom wanted to contact to tell him to stay away from me but I wouldn’t let her because he said that i was an adult and could decide for myself. I wish you find happiness ❤️ and put that past behind you
Ive never been exploited as a child and didn’t let men older than me approach me but thing song and all the stories people are leaving is so heartbreaking. I’m physically crying at all the pain all these people must’ve gone when they were groomed without realizing .
"finally 29, just like you were at the time. Thought it was teenage dream, a fantasy. But was it yours or was it mine? 17. 29." And "finally 29, 17 would never cross my mind" are such strong lines that give me chills...I wasn't ever a big fan of demi or anything but this song is just something else, true power right here 👏👏
I told myself nothing was wrong because I was 18, so I was an adult. But he was 32. This song makes my inner teen finally realize that it wasn’t my fault and that wasn’t okay for him to do.
Me cuesta trabajo escuchar esto sin que un escalofrío me recorra la piel, un crudo mensaje y la realidad que muchos jóvenes viven.
I also love how she’s going back to that rockish vibe.
I was 16, he was 25.I'll be 25 next month, and I know exactly how this feels. It's so nice to know I'm not alone in this
@Kimmy Yüni jeez. He should of been arrested
Me too exactly
@haug AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS
Holy shit, why did this happen to me too just now? And I'm 16 today and there's this guy trying to hit up on me, he's 25, deja Vu? ☠️
I was 14 and he was 33 and I thought it was perfectly okay but now I've come to realize it was not. It was disgusting.
I was 13 he was 24. I'm now 24 and i feel sick even thinking about it. And it's disgustingly sad that so many people relate to this - This song has made me realise it was never my fault and its turned my hurt into anger and gave me a want to help those that are stuck in a similar situation. This is fucking poetry right here CHEFS KISS
This hits so close to home... i was 17 he was 30 and I always thought "well I was almost 18, it was my choice even if a bad one". Now I am 24 and even at this point I know this was his choice, not mine. I would never even think about a 17 yo this way and I am not even the age he was. Thank you Demi for showing us we were not alone in this ❤
Jesus, I didn't realize how common this experience was for young girls. Truly thankful I was not part of this but I'm glad she's speaking out about it
Anybody who’s been groomed as a teenager can relate. Crazy how she describes this kind of Situation so well.
This made me cry honestly. I'm a survivor of childhood sexual abuse/incest and the abuse went on from ages 12 to 17 and the perpetrator was 21 to 26 when it ended. It really is crazy when you hit the age of these perps because you truly realize how f*cking disgusting they are to fantasize you and betray your naivety.Demi is a survivor and an inspiration. Thank you for the tears of confirmation. Sending much love during your healing journey my friend.
Guys, hate to break it to you but this comment is by a bot account, just check their channel. It's f*cked up to use a serious topic like this to generate clicks and comments especially on a song with such an important message about said serious topics. These bot accounts on X-vid are getting out of hand.
@Riddle's Anger Issues I speak of biological adults. Biologically, an adult is someone who has reached sexual maturity.
@LP What are 10 and 11 then? Since they don't fit into the 9 and under category. Also, I don't see 12-year-olds as young adults. Maybe 17, but young adulthood isn't reached until someone hits the age of majority. Young adults generally tend to be 18-24. Maybe 17 or 16 depending on the context.
Young adults (12-17) are not children (9-).
@Emmy J It makes me so sick for the victims.
Wow the lyrics rlly rlly hit me. I was 15 when my groomer online was 21. It was terrifying, I thought it was okay but it never was, I got brainwashed and manipulated. I'm still scared to talk about this to this day. Thank you Demi for comforting me through this song but also reminding me how much of a piece of trash that person was, he's still free to this day.
I was 17 (I’m now 22) and he was 36. We dated for 2 years. I moved to another country (crazy, i know) and lived together with him. He cheated on me twice. I was young and “in love” but now I know my worth and how wrong it was. Such a great song
This song deserves to be a single, a music video, playlisting, a radio push/deal AND a Grammy WIN!
mulher, tu é o momento !Te acompanho dês dos meus 9 anos de idade e meu orgulho por você só cresce diariamente !Tu é forte demais e vai muito além !!!!te amo em Cristo e Ele te ama demais
My husband nearly killed me over me finding out that he had been cheating with a 17 yr old girl. He was 31. The 17 yr old girl wanted to stay with him because she was so "in love" despite how he manipulated the both of us. And I told her exactly what demi meant in her song. I told her that one day, she will be 31 as well and she will look back and realize how wrong this all was.
I was 15 he was 25 I thought I was so in love. He only wanted to use me… she will learn one day and it’s not her fault. I hope you divorced him. He deserves jail.
@Julie Vang you need to contact a local domestic violence advocacy center. They will take you and your daughter in. They'll help you get a protective order and find legal representation. While you are figuring everything out you and your daughter will be in a safe place that he won't know about.
I hope you are safe now. The problem is that WE all forgot what it is like to be a teenager. NO ONE can tell you anything you think you know it all. And in many cultures this is a norm. Woman mature WAY younger than Men and in SOME cases relationships do last forever! I was 18 he was 29, and fast forward 20yrs married with two BEAUTIFUL & HEALTHY children together. Our age gap is not an issue now, back then I was told it was wrong. Those same people who told me it was "wrong" are divorced or unhappily married. So the song may be true for some but not for all. I love Demi for writing her Truth
Ex-husband I hope.
She brought so many young girls justice with this song.
In the in the chorus right after the bridge in this iconic bop, the pain, the suffering, the anguish, the anxiety, the stress, the trauma, etc you can literally hear it all and Demi's voice. And it's so beyond gut wrenching, eye opening, raw, vulnerable, and just means so much to me as a Demi Stan. And I cannot help crying every single time that I hear this song, and if we're being honest; I probably listen to 29 about 89 times since it came out, if not more lol, but who's with me?xx Steven Rush
Tomara que essa música faça sucesso aqui no Brasil, na moral
She's completely under rated! One of the best vocals people over look because of her journey but its obvious NO ONE can't stop her shine!! LOVE HER!!!!
As Taylor put it, I’ll get older but your lovers stay my age… This is such a powerful song that I hope every teenager hears, so they don’t automatically think it’s cool when a grown ass adult is attracted to them.
@Hope Considering it was a PR stunt y’all seem EXTRA confident.
@Heloeksks H Correct! He was shy 2 months of 19yo
@Mayis Mahmoud Wrong! Harry was born in feb 1st 1994. They dated December 2012 (18yo) and his birthday in February 2023 he was turning 19yo.
@Mayis Mahmoud also taylor dated jake gyllenhall who was 10 years older than her
@Mayis Mahmoud actually taylor was 23 and harry was 19
Thank you for this song. I love the line 'What the fuck's consent?' a lot, because consent is complicated and easily misunderstood.Even if someone is already a young adult, when you get approached by someone who is a LOT older, the younger one simply is more vulnerable. It is very easy for the older one to overstep boundaries, put subtle pressure/expectations and reach a place where it seems there is consent, but it is not real, it doesn't come a free and equivalent place.Also the heavy and intense desires from an older person can be intimidating for a younger person, definitely for a minor, but also for young adults this can be a reality. The vulnerability of a young person, who has less experience, is very real. I admire the way this song shines a light on this. You can see in all the responses how real this is.Thank you Demi, for your courage
13 24.I am 27 now.The feeling this song gives me is almost overwhelming.I didn't expect any healing to come this late.Thank you Demi
When I was 17 my friend in college who was 29 tried to sexually assault me. I had made it very clear to him and all of our friends beforehand that I had no interest in him and that I was in a relationship. I was wearing four layers of clothes. I was polite in all of my rejections. This is something that can happen to literally anyone, if you are listening to this song and reading the comments and confused about how this can happen or how the victim should have been smarter or more responsible please know, it does not matter what a victim does, when you cannot consent, it is not okay and never had been okay. If you try to justify these things happening to people, especially minors, please seek help.

Demi writes songs that have significance and power. Artists like her are so rare, she also rarely writes songs about her past relationships or exes and mostly writes songs that help people and tackle things that need awareness too and that's also the reason why I love her.
@Chihiro lmao actually u must not really be a demi lovato fan she's now done 2 different interviews one on a podcast on on TV saying she now goes by she/her and they/them so before correcting people do ur research 🤣
@The Lesbian Mango 🤣🤣🤣 calm down? I wasn't aware I was uncalm. And if you think that was me "coming at you" u clearly are a very sheltered individual. 🤦🏼♀️
@crashed19 calm down, I was just asking a simple question, I was out of connection with the outside world cause I had my senior year exams and college entrance ones, you don't have to come at me for asking a simple question, and maybe mind your own business next time
@The Lesbian Mango they aren't u are missing something she did an interview recently and now goes by she and her as well. Do ur research before telling people they are wrong
I'm so glad that she went back to her rock n roll roots. This is the sound I fell in love with. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
Demi merece mucho amor, no se como la gente estos ultimos años la ha dejado de un lado, las personas tenemos buenos y malos momentos
At 29 I know this so grossly and deeply. 17 would never cross my mind.
I'm so happy she's trying to make that mindset mainstream because that's the way it should be! I don't know how many of my friends I had to tell that I feel bad for them for dating older men and they took it as jealousy :(
This is such a brilliant message to send out to your younger fanbase. So many of your younger fans will hear this and realise that what's happening in their life isn't actually ok. I wish I had something like this when I was younger to remind me that the attention I got from older guys was not with pure intentions.Thank you for this song.
Attention from an older guy as a young girl is not a form of flattery but a red flag🚩
@Cuddle24 Huh. Yes you are? People don't grow in height after 20.
@hey hey But you’re not a “fully grown adult” at 21… I’m not okay with any grooming, but it’s important to understand nuance in who is specifically preying after young people because of their age/naivety and who has a warped sense of what is appropriate because they themselves had been groomed at a young age and thought it was an okay relationship
@Cuddle24 I assume you think the voting age, drinking age, age to sign contracts without parents and legal age to live alone should be 30?
The lyrics are so powerful just wow and omg that she went through that.
Estependa canción Demi Lovato si sabe reinventarse y darnos música de calidad
It's giving "Don't Forget" Demi Era and I'm living for it! 🖤💫
I needed this song so much right now in my life. My abuser was 30 and I was 17. Hearing this song feels so indescribably healing in so many ways.. thank you Demi ❤️🩹
@abrahamgoesmoo I've been seeing so many comments like those. They're porn bots that take comments with high like counts and interaction and repost them. It's really sad to see this happen on comments that are really sensitive like the ones under this video. Sorry it's happening to you.
Wow guys...another person copied this comment from me two days after I posted it and somehow has 3x more "likes" than me...lmaoooo. If I did it for the likes I would've posted a fake profile with my boobs out too but one that's ridiculous and two I am a man. This just goes to prove that some people have no empathy and live off of other's trauma. Smh...
@Ryan A not funny,shes been struggling with alot of shit her whole life
Damn she been on this healing journey since 2009 lol
Go to the police immediately
this is so good i can’t stop playing it.
This makes me tear up. I was only 14 and he was 29. Now I'm 29. I can relate Demi:/ sending you love.
Holy shit! This is such a well written song! You can really see how she is processing and coming to gripes with how Wilmar groomed her.
Thank you Demi for putting your soul out there! It opens up new pathways for people share and educate younger ones.I was a newly fresh 16 year old with a 24 year old in a year long "relationship". He entered my life when I moved into a new house at 15. We were neighbors. He moved out when I was 17. He caused a lot of mental damage for me. It took me years to understand that he was a predator. Having children of my own now, I can never imagine them being involved with an adult like that. Pedophilia is a Pedophilia. He also had a collection of high school girls after me. Makes me sick to my stomach that nothing was done to stop him. Even ended up marrying someone a year older. I guess it was okay because she was 20 at the time🤷♀️.
But the way she sings ‘17’ she sounded exactly the way she did when she was 17 😭😭 I love it
SHE DOES OMG
@Fatine Moumni Yes it so does!
i thought i was the only one who noticed 😭
i literally wanna cry thats so cute but heartbreaking at the same time
I was 16, he was 28.. even after 25yrs, it makes me sick, cause i realize how absolutely fucked that is- it never crossed my mind how wrong that was at 16..I pray this song helps someone, and keeps them safe🙏 DEMI, YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL💋💋💋
I've been listening to her since I was a kid and I'm a huge fan of her. It's a voice that can't be found in anyone else. She is unique with her voice, personality and singer identity. She is constantly producing and has an admirable career. I just want to give her a standing ovation. 🤍
Por favor!! Agora deem valor que a demi merece esse álbum tá incrível ela merece tudo esse álbum tá inacreditável ela merece tudo de bom serio ❤
Wooow la historia de mi vida y solo faltan 15 días para cumplir 29 , realmente estoy muy impactado con esta canción 🥲
The first chorus hits like a train, such brutal honesty as this has been missing in recent popular music and art. She says it how it is with such power! Demi should realize how important this song is going to be to so many young people! 10000/10
Important to adults who know what this song means too. They're not afraid to say it anymore.
One of the best Demi songs ever ❤️
Demi I know you'll probably never see this. But I remember your first YT documentary where you swore you'd be together again someday, and to hear you now in your power, I'm so so proud of your growth and that you're finding the strength you always had inside you.I have to say the line "Only 5 years a bleeder" absolutely wrecked me. I couldn't help but shed some tears.
This song made me relive so much 😭 The first time I was 13 he was 19. The second time I was 15 and he was 24 but this time the guy would hit me and keep me from my family and friends. Never realized how much it messed me up till my 20s.
@Riddle's Anger Issues clearly they didn't know, I would go to my friends and her parents were out of town most the time. And how would I know it was wrong, a lot of young girls thinks it's "cool" to date older guys. Maybe men should know better and not do that! Not blame a girl who didn't know!
And where were your parents during this? And why were you 13 dating a 19-year-old? Did you not know better? Did you see absolutely nothing wrong with it?
Demi has one of the most beautiful and powerful voice in the industry and nobody can change my mind. Like them or not, Demi is a freaking powerhouse
i have chills. i'm 28 now and the idea of pursuing a 17 year old is nothing short of horrifying. your perspective really shifts once it's you that's older. would you do it now? god no. but they did.
@DAKZ92 right! I remember when I was 20 almost 21, dating a 24 year old and I was hella immature in comparison to him. But everyone is different.
I'm 29, and will turn 30 in a few days. I'll never date someone who's in their late teens and early 20s. I remember how I was a lot more immature when I was in my teens and early 20s. It's the maturity gap that bothers me.
I'm 28 too, and I think dating anyone younger than 25 would be creepy
Exactly! It's about respecting that an 18 year old is in a different place in life and that their brain is still developing! There is a power differential there!
She finally felt like she could speak up. I’m SO proud of her, and this song is so haunting and perfect… it sounds like her world is shattering with the whoa parts… just like mine did.. it’s visceral, and accurate… thank you Demi
I love this song and the sound/singing style is reminding me of Demi’s first album don’t forget which was my favorite
Let's get this into the billboard hot 100!!
"just five years a bleeder" is so chilling tbh. Really makes it hit
Yes. I had talked to my mom about this once a while ago. She's 64, and she said whe she was young, older men called underage girls "bleeders" that were too young for consent but still a "bleeder" and good enough/old enough in THEIR book, for sex....
I was thinking the same
@jans1026 "Petal on the vine" and "5 years a bleeder" are like little subliminal messages. They correlate to the same thing basically..The vine is mature and grown up but the flower petal is just beginning its life.. just started blooming.
I agree, that lyric stuck out the most to me
Took me years to get out of that toxic relationship; took years to realize what was done to me. I relate soo hard to this song. And don’t forget, it’s never to late to get out and start over, I mean it!
As much as we all love this album Demi please go easy on the live performances we don’t want you ruining your mental state!!! 👑🖤 but with that said congratulations! On the album it’s amazing!👏🏻
I thought you were speaking to fans at first as in - let US not be critical of the live performances. Hopefully Demi simply does their best. But yes yes ✌️✌️
Wow I never realized how emotional this song is. I'm sorry you went through that Demi. I hope other young girl hearing this see what that type of relationship can do and sometimes age can matter. Like what was this guy thinking wanting a 17 year old?
no puede ser que temazoo te amo Demi no puedo parar de escucharlo 💘
When you realize the story these lyrics tell, it’s just so heartbreaking. So proud of Demi for overcoming all her struggles and being vulnerable enough to release a song like this. Wish I could give her a hug!Edit: Demi recently added back in she/her pronouns so that’s why I used “her” in my comment for anyone who might assume I misgendered Demi
@Blue Hour / for the gays and theys actually ur wrong do ur research demi announced in an interview she is going by she her as well again
Hebrews12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.Acts3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,James 2:24,26Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.John3:16 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.3:19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
@Warrior0810 There's so much to unpack for you, but Emotional abusers manipulate one's narrative and perception of reality with many tactics - he gaslit her into thinking SHE pursued HIM all the while seducing her as a minor. Then convinced her she needed him for sobriety. Then convinced her she was the problem and didn't know how "to be lonely". Then convinced her to protect his public image.
@Blue Hour / for the gays and theys Nope, she uses she/her again actually.
@Aurélie Bertin Nope, she is back to she/her actually.
Majestuosa canción y que interpretación de Demi Lovato nunca decepciona en cuanto a su música
In my story I was 19, he was 29, this song hits hard now, I can't imagine how it's going to hit me when I reach 29.Most of those relationships are toxic as hell, the older one will try to control the life of the youngest in all aspects and try to mold the person to their liking, seeking to create the perfect person for them.The younger person won't do much about it, usually because it's the first time they've felt in love and they think these attitudes are normal in relationships.Also later you realize that you are not the only young person who has been on his/her list.Thank you Demi for bringing us this song, it is a topic that sometimes goes unnoticed or that some people want to romanticize.
No me canso de escucharla !!!!
he was 18 and I was 12, it only lasted for a year, and stopped once he left for university and found someone else. I was miserable because I thought we were in love. Now, on the edge of 17 I can’t even fathom having anything similar with anyone that isn’t my own age, let alone a 6th grader.
absolutely incredible. Well done Demi. I literally grew up at the same time as her and this song makes me so proud of her
I grew up with them too! I am extremely proud of them
@CATIO I care
I met him at 14 he was 25. We got married when I was 19, had our baby. I'm 24 now, if I could go back and walk away I so would. But never will I ever regret my baby.
@Riddle's Anger Issues 23 and 24 still kids adult legally but mentallly they are child..once they turn 25 is when their brain starts functioning. it when they really start maturing and viewing the world as adults.
Petal on the vine, too young to drink wine Just five years of bleeders, student and a teacher Far from innocent, what the fuck's consent? Numbers told you not to, but that didn't stop you Finally twenty-nine Funny, just like you were you at the time Thought it was a teenage dream, just a fantasy But was it yours or was it mine? Seventeen, twenty-nine Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Seventeen, twenty-nine Had me in your grip, went beautifully with All my daddy issues, and the shit continues I see you're quite the collector Yeah, you're twelve years her elder Maybe now it doesn't matter But I know fucking better Yeah, I know fucking better, 'cause Finally twenty-nine Funny, just like you were you at the time Thought it was a teenage dream, just a fantasy But was it yours or was it mine? Seventeen, twenty-nine Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Finally twenty-nine Seventeen would never cross my mind Thought it was a teenage dream, a fantasy But it was yours, it wasn't mine Seventeen, twenty-nine Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Never been a fan of Demi but I stumbled upon this song on TikTok. Had no idea that it was her until I looked it up. This song brought me to tears. 🥺😭
This is hauntingly beautiful. This story has been told over and over again and should be recognized how sadly common it is.
Me encanta que Demi Lovato siempre nos regala canciones muy profundas y con mucho sentimiento
Think whatever you want about Demi but this song hits different, I'm not a fan really but this song is amazing. Not only the lyrics can resonate with people but the song is soo good I'm addicted can't help it.
I never thought I'd say this, but Demi Lovato Rocks!!!
I never was* a fan of Demi, but this song touches my soul...
This song made me realize that artists like Demi, Miley and Selena may not be as huge as they used to be but they will always be remembered as our Disney girls - they literally raised a whole ass generation 💔 and as they get older, we’re approaching a time where newer artists are now taking the stage. Those 3 are the holy trinity and I am eternally grateful for their art.Btw this song and East Wing I Still Wonder are keeping me alive rn!!!
Demi is just looking for clout. He rejected her at 17.she approached him .... Didn't date till 18 bc and she approached again.
@Brian Glavey did she had any solo song after that? Her last spanish album wins alot soo... Dude try again
@M H Yeah but that's still 3 years ago
@Brian Glavey lose you to love me had
@M H I mean not really. Selena and Miley haven't had a verified hit in years
I KNEW this day would come. Demi is a smart cookie and I'm glad that she realized how she was taken advantage of. Yes,,, he is a collector.
Que gran canción de Demi Lovato ella si que nunca decepciona con su música
I was 7 he was 24. I turn 24 next year and I’ve thought this same way…this song really hits me in the feels
