Connect With Demi Lovato
There's no denying Demi Lovato's star is on the rise. Her fourth album titled ';Unbroken' is releasing next week and she's playing two shows in New York City (September 17th) and Los Angeles (September 23rd), both of which sold out in minutes.
Fans might cite her music or her past Disney Channel show, ';Sonny With A Chance' as reasons why they follow the 19-year-old, but there's another reason to love her: her honesty.
In recent months, the singer/actress has spoken out on the pressures to be perfect, her own battle with eating disorders, cutting and bipolar disorder. She checked into a treatment facility last fall to face these issues head on and engages in a constant dialogue with her fans, which she as over 4 million of on Twitter.
"If Selena Gomez is ugly, I wanna be as ugly as her. If Demi Lovato is fat, I wanna be as fat as her," one of her fans tweeted on Tuesday.
The first single off her new album, ';Skyscraper,' is a raw and emotional track with lyrics that include: "Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper."
It's this positive message of strength that really resonated with her fans. Her latest release, a dance track featuring Missy Elliot and Timbaland, doesn't have quite the same inspirational feel, but the underlying tone of self-confidence, self-love and self-empowerment are still there.
Cambio was with Demi last month when she did a meet and greet with her fans at the AT&T store in Santa Monica.
