20 Things Demi Lovato Has Accomplished in Her 20 Years
As of tomorrow, Demi Lovato is officially no longer a teen. In honor of her 20th birthday (which happens on August 20!), we’ve picked 20 awesome things that Demi has accomplished so far. (And we’re looking forward to many, many more!)
1. Starred in Barney & Friends at age 10. HINT: She’s the one on the left, Selena Gomez is the one on the right.
2. Charmed us as the adorable Charlotte in As The Bell Rings.
3. Auditioned for Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance on the same day… and nabbed both leading roles.
4. Starred in her own “Got Milk?” ad.
5. Showed us her comedy chops on Sonny With a Chance.
6. Proved her singing skills by releasing three albums — Get Back, Here We Go Again, and Unbroken — with nary a sophomore slump. Just ask the Lovatics!
7. Went on three tours, one for each of her albums.
8. Starred in three Disney Channel Original Movies: Camp Rock, Princess Protection Program, and Camp Rock 2: Final Jam. (Obviously, three’s a good number for Demi!)
9. Bought a house in L.A. when she 16 years old (and then bought her family a house when she turned 18).
10. Recognized — and got help for! — her problems with cutting, bulimia, and depression.
11. Released an MTV documentary called Stay Strong about her struggles with addiction, being way more open and candid than most celebs.
12. Pressured the Disney Channel to remove episodes of Shake It Up and So Random! (the spin-off of her own show) that made eating-disorder jokes.
13. Kept up a great relationship with younger sis, Madison De La Garza.
14. Reached well over 8.5 million Twitter followers.
15. Got nominated for the VMA’s Best Video With A Message award with her first post-rehab single, “Skyscraper.” (Can’t wait to see if she wins in September!)
16. Won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Pop Artist.
17. Not only covered Seventeen, but also guest-edited an issue!
18. Became a certified hair style star. Red, blonde, pink… what’s next? We’ve even been keeping close watch on her buns.
19. Hosted the Teen Choice Awards.
20. Face-planted The X-Factor costar Simon Cowell into a cake. A win of the most epic proportions.
