The X Factor USA judge told Teen Vogue that she is currently working on her fourth album but wants to make sure that the tracks have meaning.
"I'm tired of songs that don't have much emotion in them," she said.
However, Lovato promised that she will not release an album solely consisting of ballads, saying: "I love the way that Adele has carved out a path for a singer that's very emotional, but I also love how Taylor Swift can do the same thing - she puts a lot into her songs yet they're still very catchy."
Lovato added: "I will say that I'm tired of all the dubstep that's on the radio right now - I think it's going to be out in two months.
"I want to make something that people will listen to for a while, rather than something that's just trendy. I feel like I've grown as a person, and I want my music to grow with me."
Lovato was recently named one of the most powerful under-21s in music by Billboard, beaten only by Justin Bieber and One Direction.
The X Factor USA airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on Fox.
