Less than a week after Fox announced that Demi Lovato will return to the third season of The X Factor, the former Disney star leaked her upcoming album cover art.
Lovato, 20, tweeted a teaser of herself which garnered buzz in social media on March 30 because the Twitpic showed a portion of the singer wearing dark lipstick with one hand covering her face which is covered with silver glitter.
Lovato simply captioned the photo on Twitter "I spy....demilovato.com" to direct her fans to her website.
The tweet provided a link to Lovato's website which offered a flash design that slowly reveals Lovato topless and bare her shoulders. Her face covered by both hands as she stares into the camera. Her hands, face, shoulders and hairline is covered in silver.
The singer's name appears at the top with the release date for her upcoming fourth solo album: "Demi..the new album available May 14th"
Fox announced on March 30 that Lovato would return to the judges' table for season 3 and the singer shared her excitement in a statement.
"I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor," Lovato said. "Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!"
Cowell expressed his desire for Lovato's return in a recent interview.
"I couldn't be happier that Demi wants to come back this year," Cowell told Seacrest on his radio show. "She's a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying-I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists. I'm especially pleased she's back, even during her world tour!"
Cowell has yet to announce a replacement for Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.
The X Factor season 3 auditions begin in New Orleans at the Lakefront Arena on April 14.
The X Factor season 3 returns to Fox in September this year.
