2016 has been quite a year of change for Demi Lovato.
Following her June breakup from Wilmer Valderrama — her boyfriend of six years — Lovato got a fresh set of extensions, became even more vocal within the body positivity movement, and then out of nowhere announced her plans to exit the music industry all together.
Phew. The woman clearly has a lot going on.
But before she leaves the spotlight for good, it looks like Lovato has a few more surprises for her fans — including another major makeover.
Lovato uploaded a selfie on Instagram late Sunday night, showing off her brand new, super-blonde hair.
“Goldie Locks," she captioned the photo. Looks like Kylie Jenner isn't the only one going light for fall.
The lighter 'do is a major switch up from the short haircut she rocked just two months ago.
OR her super-long break-up extensions.
In the past three months alone, Lovato has changed her hairstyle several times — King Kylie, eat your heart out.
But for someone who wants to keep her distance from the limelight, the timing of these extreme makeovers seems a bit odd. Lovato's blonde debut comes RIGHT on the heels of her "retirement" announcement.
"It doesn't feel worth it anymore. I'd rather do charity work," Lovato responded to a commenter on Twitter.
Perhaps Lovato is just focusing on doing what makes HER happy, first and foremost.
The singer has been going makeup-free, and asks that her photos remain unretouched.
Looks like this blonde hair is an exploration of her image — and what makes her the happiest.
But no matter the reason behind Lovato's most recent transformation, we think she looks amazing.
And we hope 2017 is also a year of change for Lovato — positive change!
