Happy birthday to Demi Lovato who turns 21 today (August 20)!
The singer recently spoke to OK! about being a role model. She said at the Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Summer Concert in Philadelphia, “To be a role model is my biggest responsibility. It’s about being honest—it’s about being open. I look at it as I have a little sister [Madison De La Garza, 11], and I want to be a role model for her. I’ve been through a lot in my life, and the last thing I want is for my sister to go through anything that I did. I want to help prevent her from the mistakes that I’ve made.”
Demi is having a great year. She’s back as a judge on The X Factor and will appear in a few episodes on this season’s Glee.
On the reality show with Simon Cowell – Lovato said, “I feel like this season is so different and dare I say it better than last season. Not just talent wise, but the chemistry between the entire panel is like family. We have bonded. Paulina and Kelly and I have become like sisters. I can go to them with anything and have deep conversations and at the same time laugh our asses off.”
