It is undeniable that Demi Lovato has seen her fair share of ups and downs. The extraordinary thing is that despite the scrutiny and the pressure, Demi has held her head high to maintain an admirable degree of honesty about her personal struggles with eating disorders, self-harming, and depression. In a documentary she filmed with MTV, Demi Lovato: Stay Strong, the artist chronicled her first tour upon leaving treatment in early 2011. The special premieres tomorrow night (March 6) at 10 p.m. ET on MTV, and will be followed by a live after show with MTV News’ SuChin Pak in which viewers (that’s you) can ask Demi questions.
Thing is, we’re not just commemorating how far Demi’s come in the last calendar year. We at MTV Style ride for Demi because at just 19 years old, she’s proven herself to be an honorable and talented artist. Sure, we’ve admired her as a fashion plate but we also believe that her candor is because she cares about the welfare of her fans. She’s brave and honest and refreshingly human. So as a small salute to Demi’s personal growth, we’ve put together a collection of images to mark whence she came. Flip through and watch Demi come into her own and be sure to check out a couple of clips from the forthcoming documentary below as well. Plus, don’t miss “Demi Lovato: Stay Strong,” debuting Tuesday, March 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
