Exclusive: Demi Lovato Talks Miley Duet, Joe Jonas Split and Feeling 'More Adult'

Exclusive: Demi Lovato Talks Miley Duet, Joe Jonas Split and Feeling 'More Adult'-photo

Two summers ago, the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock turned then 16-year-old Demi Lovato into a breakout star and 'tweens the world over fell in love with her character, Mitchie Torres, an everygirl with rock star talent and a pretty cool duet partner (that would be a mulleted Joe Jonas.)

Two years, two pop-rock albums and another Disney movie later, Demi and the JoBros return for the sequel, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, premiering September 3.  In an exclusive interview with Celebuzz, Demi, who recently blew out her 18th birthday candles, said both she and Mitchie have grown up.

“She has more confidence now,” Demi told Celebuzz of her character. “In the first movie she was really insecure and she didn’t really know who she was. Now she’s more driven."

You could say the same about Demi, who is starring in her very own Disney Channel series, Sonny With a Chance, working on an R&B-influenced third studio album, moving her family into a new house (!) and touring with the Jonases, including Joe, 21, who is now her ex-boyfriend. How does she manage to remain friends with him?

“Well, you have to, ‘cause you work with him,” Demi told us. “When you’re hurt, it’s easy to move on, so it was very easy for me to move on.”

Her advice for fans attempting to get along with their exes is pretty simple.  “Suck it up,” she said with a laugh.

And so she’s doing just that, even revealing that she has a crush on a well-known R&B star.

“I’m kind of digging Trey Songz – he’s pretty hot,” she divulged.  Though she tells Celebuzz there’s nothing romantic happening with the 25-year-old singer-actor, she said, “We followed each other on Twitter and direct message each other…he’s pretty awesome."

Trey’s soulful vibe could be an indication of what fans will hear on Demi’s new album, which she hopes to release early next year.  Expect what she calls a “new sound,” a blend of hip-hop and dance tracks, and even – brace yourselves -- possible duets with Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.

“We talked about doing a duo together, like an acoustic or something. That would be really fun to do with her,” Demi told us of Miley. “She’s one of my best friends and she’s super talented, so I’d love to have her on the album.”

The Biebs, who just shared the stage with Miley this week in New York, is also on Demi’s list of potential collaborators.

“He’s a really sweet kid. I’d love to work with him,” she said. “My little sister loves him and I’m a fan so I guess you could say I’ve got Bieber Fever.”

Amidst buzz that Baby Biebs wants to remake Grease with Miley, Demi says she'd "rather do West Side Story" or Broadway's In the Heights.

For now, Demi is focusing on a new season of Sonny With a Chance (not to be confused with the similarly-named It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which she calls "one of her favorite" shows.) Despite her milestone 18th birthday, she’s in no rush to take on grittier roles.

“I don’t really feel like I need to do that until I step out of my Disney Channel place,” she told Celebuzz. “I’m just kind of waiting until the timing is right, but I feel more adult, just living day by day as a newly 18 year old."

Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premeries Sept. 3 on Disney Channel.

Will you tune in to see Demi rock with the JoBros? Should she duet with Miley and The Bieb - and strike up romance with Trey Songz? Weigh in on all things Demi in the comments! Also, check out BuzzNet's exclusive contest to win an autographed Demi Lovato guitar!!!

    Demi is a breath of fresh air. I love how she says, "Suck it up" when asked about how to be friends with exes. She is very wise beyond her years...or maybe others are just dumb for their ages. Although, I am saddened that she's not such great friends with Sel anymore, I love her all the same. I love both girls. They seem to know where they're headed in life and they're totally sexy without going the "slutty" route. I love Miley too, but I'm worried she might be destroying herself. I'm a fan of all 3 and I wish them all the luck in life.

    She reminds me of Fran Drescher. They have the same look, speaking voice and laugh. She also has comedic chops. They are both terrifically funny ladies.

    Musically speaking this sounds very disappointing to me. I mean we all need yet another cd that "she calls a “new sound,” a blend of hip-hop and dance tracks" I'll wait to hear it but I was really hoping she go further down the hard rock road, seeing as her colleagues all seem to be trying that "new sound of hip-hop and dance tracks".Guess for now, if I wanna hear a female rocker it's gonna have to be Halestorm and The Donnas.

    Wow!! Just the other day they asked her that question about doing a duet with Selena and she immediately shun it and now this... people and times really does change. She and Selena were such great friends, they did a movie together and songs together and it has now comes to this. Hopefully when she does the deut with Miley they will split also and u will really see who the true Demi is

    Demi is amazing, she has a true gift and she uses it to her advantage. No matter what she decides to do in her career, i'm sure it will be a great choice for her. She is my idol and I can't wait until her album comes out... Love You Demi!!!!

I'm so dissapointed, I thought he was better than that... anyway, I love her and I hope that she keep being so amazing

    Love Demi & i'm glad she's not rushing into anything anytime soon because truthfully that's overwhelming as a fan. And sucking it up has to be the best way to go about a break up! No need to dwell on the past. Can't wait for her new album & YES i'll be watching Camp Rock 2 2moro ;)

    I find that she's basically saying she wants to leave the whole disney star theme. But, i bet if they made a third Camp Rock she's bounce BACK in an INSTANT. -.- I hope SWAC ends soon. Disney is getting ride of the best shows and they're leaving the terrible ones with no talent. That kind of sucks. WOWP&HM, FTW. Camp Rock basically took over her year. And they (disney and everything else) keep trying to promote it soo much that i'm sick of it all! Totally not watching it.

    Now THIS is the real Demi that I know and fell in love with.... See, unlike Miley, Demi is going with the more grown up approach and taking the classsy way out, and, even better she isn't going for the Britney approach. She has SO many good things in life going on that she dosen't care if she messes up. She could always get back up again no matter what! And I love her for that. She is VERY sweet to her family and, again unlike Miley, NEVER insulting, or disrespecting. I love her for ALL that she's done and I love her more for her personality, attitude, and class that she has!! Keep it up Demi!!!!
