Have I ever told you guys that I love Demi Lovato? I love her style. I love her music. I love her personality and I am inspired by her life story.With Demi recently announcing her return back to The X Factor as a judge and releasing a teaser for her new self-titled album releasing mid-May, I felt it fitting to talk about my adoration for one of Disney”s ex-teen princesses.
I am not going to sit here, type this out and tell you “OMG, I love Demi Lovato – always have and always will.”. I did not. When i first noticed her in Disney Channel’s Original Movie, Camp Rock I remember thinking “ugh, another little Disney princess – bleh”.
I enjoyed some of her music but still preferred Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. I watched Sonny With A Chance occasionally and started to have more ‘tolerance’ towards Demi. I Then really got in to her music and started to really like her. Then, as with the rest of the world, I was hit by shock when it was revealed that Demi Lovato was self-harming and suffering depression. Then she took a break.
I really hoped she was not going down the same pathways Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes did. I grew to like her confidence and individuality. Luckily, Demi was on the road to a speedy recovery.She released her album ‘Unbroken’ and it was definitely a breath of fresh air compared to all of her previous Disney work.
Her life became so much more relatable and I instantly developed a new found respect and admiration for her. I think of her struggles when I need motivation. She really is the symbol of determination and strength.
At such a young age she has achieved a lot as well as experienced a lot. She’s been through all sides of life, unbroken but rising up like a Skyscraper.
This is for Demi Lovato.
I can’t wait for May 14th.
