Meet The Disney: Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato’s name has been all over the news lately, and, boy does she deserve it!

First coming into the spotlight on the short five-minutes Disney series As the Bell Rings, Demi really hit it big with her role in this summer’s Camp Rock flick with her good friends, the Jonas Brothers. Yeah, lucky girl. She’s currently touring with the well-dressed trio, and is about to release her first album. Holy jeez!

Oh, and she has a new show, Welcome to Mollywood, coming to Disney next month. Busy girl!

Born in Dallas, Texas, on August 20, 1992, Demi just celebrated her 16th birthday this past Thursday. During her opening act on Thursday, thousands of her adoring fans sang happy birthday to her as a montage of footage played from her very successful 16 years.

Demi is best friends with another rising Disney star, Selena Gomez. The brunettes met on the set of Barney and Friends when they were just six, and have been inseperable ever since. The girls do everything together, including partaking in their own YouTube fun—which may or may not have triggered a free-for-all war with none other than Miley Cyrus herself. At least the Jonas Brothers have their million dollar backs.

Check out what Demi had to say about her Sweet 16.

Demi’s first album, “Don’t Forget,” hits stores on September 23rd. If the sales are anything like her Disney counterparts, get ready for Lovato mania!
