Guardian caught up with Demi Lovato in a Q&A, where the former ‘Sonny with a Chance’ star talked about the quality of her latest album ‘Demi’ vs her prior efforts, viewing getting older as a privilege, being the subject of multiple interventions, a possible childhood crush on the man inside the Barney the Dinosaur costume, being glad her Disney Channel chapter has closed, and wanting to form a girl group that included herself, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.
As for what advice she might give in the future if she had a 15-year-old daughter that said, “I want to be famous”, Demi responded, “When people say ‘I want to be famous – I want to be a star’, you have to ask: ‘What are your intentions? If you just want to be famous, make a sex tape.’ So what I’d say is, if you’re doing it because you want to be a respected actress or musician, follow your dream. If you just want paparazzi following you, rethink what’s going on in your little head. It’s crazy how people confuse the two nowadays.”
