I have looked up to Demi Lovato since her early days on Disney Channel. She was the lead in a number of Disney shows and movies that I grew up watching. She had a relatable personality which is why I idolized her when I was younger. Although I think she is a talented actress, I prefer her music to her movies/shows.
