ABC News’ Jesse Palmer asked Lovato, 22, how she was able to write new music when she was busy on tour.
“Sometimes, you can play around when you're practicing on the piano,” Lovato replied. “I have a keyboard in my room. But for the most part, it's lyrics, just like, 'OK, I'll write that down.'”
The “Heart Attack” singer also told Palmer that she finds inspiration from “every single corner of the world” in her travels.
He takes the stage to tell his story at every tour venue.
Asked what it was like to tour with Lovato, West replied: “It’s absolutely bonkers. I’m so grateful.”
Lovato said West’s story has an effect on her.
“His inspiration not only impacted my life a lot, it also felt like this is a message that young people of today need to hear,” she said. “I hate to say it, but there's a lot of laziness, and outside the Internet there's a whole world that needs help.”
“I know what works for me,” she said. “I know that [being] physically in shape and active, and eating healthy and doing the things I need to do while on the road, I know that that keeps me mentally in a great place.”
She also described being able to interact with her fans -- known as “Lovatics” -- as “amazing.
“Sometimes, it can get really heavy. Because I've been so honest and open with my fans, they feel that they can be honest and open with me [in a way] that they can't with, maybe, their family or friends,” she said. “So I hear a lot of deep dark secrets. But for the most part it's really, really fun.”
Backstage, the production is bigger than any of the concert tours Lovato has ever done. That means having “A Thousand Years” singer Christina Perri and musical duo MKTO as her opening acts.
Her wardrobe fits in with the overall theme of the tour, including a bustier and leather garments.
“I mean, I just love that kind of look,” she said.
“I've done here and there, but I've never taken a concert all around the world,” she said, “so I'm going to try to go to as many places as I can.”
