"La La Land" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Joseph Jonas, Paul Jonas Ii and Demi Lovato....
I am confident, but
I still have my moments.
Baby, that's just me.

I'm not a supermodel
I still eat McDonald's.
Baby, that's just me.

Well, some may say I need to be afraid
Of losing everything.
Because of where I
Had my start and,
Where I made my name.
But everything's the same
In a la la land machine. Machine.

Who said I can't wear my
Converse with my dress?
Oh, baby, that's just me!

And who said I can't be single
I have to go out and mingle
Baby, that's not me.
No, no.

Well, some may say I need to be afraid
Of losing everything.
Because of where I
Had my start and,
Where I made my name.
But everything's the same
In a la la land machine. Machine.

Tell me do you feel the way I feel
Cause nothing else is real
In the la-la land appeal.

Well, some may say I need to be afraid
Of losing everything.
Because of where I
Had my start and,
Where I made my name.
But everything's the same
In a la la land machine. Machine.

Well, I'm not gonna change
In a la la land machine
Well I will stay the same
In la la land

Machine

I won't change anything of my life
(I won't change anything of my life)
I'm staying myself tonight
(I'm staying myself tonight)

    General CommentI think this song is actually about Disney. "La La Land" is actually Disney and/or Hollywood.
    "Some say I need to be afraid of losing everything
    Because of where I had my start and where I made my name."

    A lot of people say that Demi is going to lose everything--her career, her dignity, etc., because she got started and made her name on Disney Channel, and most Disney stars grow up and ruin their lives. She's saying that it's not going to happen to her because she's going to stay herself, and not let anyone else tell her what to do.

    The "Lala Land Machine" is the Disney Channel 'machine' that creates tween actresses, singers, and stars, and then disposes of them. "Everything's the same in the La La Land machine" means that all these people are the same, but Demi is going to try to be different.

    This song is amazing, I love her.

    General CommentI love this song. It's really catchy and fun. I don't think it is JUST for Disney, but it has some part. She's talking about all of Hollywood. She won't be another Barbie doll like most of the young girls are now. She wants to be herself and telling you straight out that "that's just me."

    General CommentTHIS WOULD SO BE ME IF I WAS IN HOLLYWOOD.

    I would hate prancing around like a princess, people following me around with every dude I hang out with, etc. etc. (Converse with a dress? YES. PLEASE.)

    And this song represents her a little. You don't need to be fancy and pretty and always ready to answer questions for the paparazzi to be in Hollywood. You can be whoever you want.

    General CommentI like the message in this song. Shes saying shes going to be herself and not let the "lala land machine" (i.e. disney/hollywood) change her. And she not going to let other people's oppinions and such get her down. good song.

    But, its sad she signed to disney. Shes better than that. She has an amazing voice and good lyrics. But having a disney image means she has to make her songs more upbeat and posative, and she can't have as many deep or meaningful songs. And, being with disney means her fanbase in going to consist mostly of 12 year old girls. To be honest, its doubtful she'll really get anywhere beyond that and disney.

    Not many kids over the age of 12 and 13 give disney kids a chance, they have a rep for being poppy, annoying, and fake. Demi is soooo much better than that. Disney gave her a chance but it also ruined her. too bad.

    General Commentthis is such a cool song.
    it's basically about her standing up for what she is
    and when people try to bring her down or tell her what to do
    she's always gonna remember to true to herself
    and not care what people think


    "who says i can't converse with my dress baby that's just me" i love that line cuz i did the exact thing at my dance that i went. haha

    General CommentI like Elvawen's interpretation of the song. If that's the real meaning, I admire Demi for that.. I was a little disappointed that she got signed to Disney because I think she could have gotten more success and a better fan base if she started somewhere else. Some of her songs are really deep but Disney won't produce them because it's not their style. Anyways, Demi rocks! I love her.

    General CommentI agree with both Elvawen and Jadore Music, I think even if Disney drops her or whatever happens (what do they do with past stars? A giant dumpster?) she can easily pick up with someone else, she's just so talented.

    And this song is the perfect way to start the album, it gets you in the mood of HER.
    I admire her (if she wrote it) for these lyrics.

    General CommentI agree with what everybody has said so far about Demi not wanting to change herself to the conformities of Hollywood. I really admire her for that and hope she always stands her ground. I would also like to point out that the city of Los Angeles is nicknamed "La La Land", so it was pretty evident to me that that was what she was singing about when I first heard this song. The line "I am confident, but I still have my moments" really jumped out at me because I think it's a feeling a lot of people, especially young girls/women, can relate to.
