At 16, Demi Lovato has already starred with the Jonas Brothers in the über-popular Disney Channel movie “Camp Rock,” and has another movie, “Princess Protection Program,” slated to air in January. Not to mention her album, Don’t Forget, just debuted at #2 on Billboard. But in this era of over-achieving teens (ahem, Miley), that isn’t nearly enough.
Lately, has been working on a new platform for her talents: the Disney Channel sitcom “Sonny With a Chance.” Describing the experience as “awesome,” she told MTV News what fans can expect when the show hits airwaves early next year.
“I play Sonny, who’s a girl from Wisconsin, and she kinda sticks out like a sore thumb, ’cause she’s very quirky and very over the top,” Lovato said. “She comes to L.A. to be on her favorite TV show. It’s like ’30 Rock,’ but for the Disney Channel. ['30 Rock'] is my favorite TV show. I stick out like a sore thumb, but it’s where I belong.”
Lovato’s also got support from her pal and “Princess Protection” co-star Selena Gomez, who recently told TVGuide.com that she’d love to share some screen time with her friend — whether on “Sonny With a Chance” or Gomez’s show “Wizards of Waverly Place.”
“We’re working on [a cameo],” Gomez said. “We’d love to have Demi on ['Wizards.'] And I’d love to be a guest star on her show.”
And while Lovato describes her recent success as a “dream come true,” she’s not about to slow down anytime soon. To support her album, she said she plans to shoot as many music videos as possible.
“I just shot a video for ‘Get Back,’ and it turned out awesome,” she said. “Hopefully, we’ll do that with more of the songs, and hopefully, you’ll like them.”
