Demi Lovato Turns 21: Her Year Ahead

Demi LovatoHappy birthday, Demi Lovato! Today, the singer/actress/hairstyle maven turns 21. It’s already been a wild ride for the multi-hyphenate performer, and we imagine that as she dives even deeper into her twenties, more success is coming her way.

Demi has been out of the public eye for the past few days, and based on her Twitter, we assume she’s spending her big day in Africa, upholding her promise that her summer vacation would be spent “like a boss.” That’s a much more exotic location than where we celebrated our 21st birthday. Believe us! Though we suspect that when she lands stateside again, the newly legal singer will be very busy!

First up, Demi is up for a Best Female Video Moonman at the VMAs this Sunday. She'll go against Pink, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Rihanna. To find out if she’ll take home her second-ever Moonman (she won one last year) for “Heart Attack,” tune into the show when it goes live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on August 25.

Then, his fall, she'll appear on not one but two TV shows for FOX. This September, she will return to “X Factor” as a mentor/judge on the series. It’s her second season with with the show. With Britney Spears out, Demi and Simon Cowell will be joined by Paulina Rubio and Kelly Rowland. The new season kicks off on September 11.

She also just booked a recurring role on “Glee,” where she’s slated to hang with Santana and Rachel in NYC. She’ll also be putting her killer pipes to good use. She’ll duet with Adam Lambert during her tenure, according reports. Her first episode is slated for October 3. The “Glee” role marks her first acting gig since leaving Disney’s “Sonny With a Chance” in 2011.

In between TV gigs, we’re hoping that Demi makes some time to film another music video. She pretty much slayed it in her directorial effort for “Made in the USA.” We hope more directing is in Demi’s future, for sure!
