Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato

Every time I see a magazine with Demi on the cover, I have to pick it up and read through it. I have to soak up as much knowledge as humanly possible on this woman. I read every internet article I can find about her, and I listen to her latest album, Demi, on repeat. I think it's safe to say that I have a bit of an obsession with her right now and I think everyone I know personally can back me up that statement. There is just something so addictive about her. She's a multi-talented, fashion superstar and she's an insanely strong individual - oh, and she only turned 21 recently. I really wish I had someone like her to look up to when I was younger.

Let's put her music and flawless sense of personal style on the back burner for a second and discuss her strength, shall we? Even if your knowledge on Demi is minimal, chances are you've heard a little bit of what she's been through. She was victim of bullies in her adolescence, she grew up in the limelight and she has suffered from a handful of mental health issues. Demi has received rehab treatment for bulimia, self harm, self medication and was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. If you've ever suffered from any one of those you know how hellish it is and how excruciatingly difficult it is to speak about it. She could have easily just faded into the background and let those addictions and conditions take over her life. She could have suffered in silence for even longer but after an incident and an intervention from her family and friends, she got help and she is now devoting her life to help young girls, and boys, know that they aren't alone. She encourages them to stay strong, and to encourage them to seek help as well. She does this through her music, through media and social media outlets and she is even a contributing editor for Seventeen Magazine, where she discusses mental health.

Now that I got that out of my system, let me gush about her style. She is definitely the most rockerish out of the most recent Disney "Princesses" and I believe that her personal style really resembles my own. She often wears head-to-toe black, leather, spikes with a bold pattern thrown in here and there. I would love to take a peak at her lipstick collection because her lips are always painted in the most beautiful tones, and her eyebrows are something that I dream about at night. Her style is fairly easy to mimic as well, seeing as she is often spotted wearing outfits completely made out of Topshop pieces.

"Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That's my life motto." - Demi Lovato
