“X Factor” judge and singer Demi Lovato stopped by “Conan” on Tuesday (Oct. 1), where she talks about her new book of inspirational quotes — “it’s something that has helped me stay inspired and positive” — and also how she doesn’t really understand twerking.

“I don’t really know what it is, is it twitching and working? Is it dancing? Why don’t we just call it dancing? … I got a big booty, I know how to shake it, but what’s the difference between that and twerking?” wonders Lovato, echoing probably many people’s sentiments.

Host Conan O’Brien also brings up these funny pictures of co-“X Factor” judge Simon Cowell that Lovato has been tweeting and a hybrid of Lovato and Cowell that some fans made. O’Brien wonders if Cowell really cares that much what Demi is up to regarding him.

“I don’t really know for sure and I kind of don’t really care ’cause I’m gonna do it anyways. That’s what he gets for hiring an at-the-time 19-year-old to sit with him at the judges table,” laughs Lovato. “Personally, I think I make him better looking.”

And what about a Cowell-O’Brien hybrid? “No one wins in that situation,” cracks Conan.
