Demi Lovato certainly inspires her fans to be who they are and make no apologies for it. During her MTV special, “Demi Lovato: Stay Strong,” airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT today (March 6) on MTV, the singer/actress opens up about her connection to her Lovatics, and how they inspire her as much as she inspires them.
“Every time someone asks me for a picture or an autograph, even if I’m having a bad day and I’m in a bad mood, I remember, ‘You’re nothing without this person,’ ” she says during the documentary. “They make it special.”
At a tour stop, one fan tells Lovato that she inspired her to not wear her wig and just embrace who she is. The young woman tells the singer, “Keep being awesome.”
Later during her performance, Lovato recalls meeting the fan and invites her to come onstage to sing. “Give it up to my friend who inspired me earlier,” she tells the room of screaming Lovatics, with her special fan at her side.
