Demi Lovato ‘I Almost Quit Performing’

Demi Lovato revealed to Tiger Beat [Which is on newsstands NOW] 3 things you might not know about her to. Did YOU know Dem was almost quit performing completely before she got her big break on Camp Rock?

‘I decided to take two years off but I missed performing, and that’s when I gained the confidence and passion to go back and fight for what I wanted. Now, I’ll do a hundred jumping jacks and stretch and do a little workout before the show to get the blood flowing!

Her style secret: ‘I love to shop at vintage stores. I like the messy, long hair, total rock, haven’t washed their hair in three days, skinny black jeans boys.’

Dem loves her family [Madison Delagarza] and fans: ‘I’ve learned to appreciate my family more because they don’t tour with me. Each family member plays certain part in my life that I couldn’t live without.

My fans are the best. Once I was on stage and a fan was crying and singing one of my songs. I had to tell myself not to cry. I just closed my eyes and smiled and kept singing to the girl. That’s what a true connection is!’

    her legs are really skinny!

    if she did quite preforming i would probably die, she’s amamazing i love her (Y)

    i love her!

  • sigh.

    all that i can say about Demi is that she had best thank her lucky stars that she was friends with Selena/JB, cuz otherwise she’d just be another random emo kid.

  • kayla!

    dang, sounds like this could be about a lot of people. i doubt it was me she was talking about. but in syracuse on august 29th, she was like “who hear has ever had their heart broken” and everyone screamed, and i was right against the catwalk, so when it got quiet i yelled “i got mine broken this morning” (cause i did) and she looked at me and i just broke down and BALLLLLEEEDDDD. and she kept looking over at me and stuff. i kinda felt like an idiot, everyone around me was like “:o” when i cried.

    OMG! LOOKS AT THAT SHE’S SHOWING HER LEGS! WHAT A SLUTTY PIC!

    She might be talking about me. I saw her on July 23rd. She came out singing “That’s How You Know” and I was singing and crying. She came right to me and held my hand and sang to me. It’s be neat if she meant me!

  • Jemie`

    This pic is from her myspace, right? Why does she always photoshop herself black and white and then do the blue eye thing? It’s annoying (for anyone, not just her)

  • Denisse

    Aww I love Demi & I seriously think that the
    girl who was crying & singing Demi’s song
    was Jenno from Underdog. I love Jenno & Demi <3

    aww. that makes me wanna cry.. like how you said she kept looking over at you and stuff.

    i never thought a celebrity could care so much about a fan. aw =\

  • oic

    lol yeah, this “metal” phase of hers is fairly recent. she used to be quite the girly-girl, up until like a month before camp rock was released. she seems to be going back to that style.

    Meh, HDuff isn’t my favorite. She doesn’t have too much charisma, you know? No stage presence.

    …..she has a lot of sobs stories, all she ever talks about was her being bullied and how sad it was that she had some people tell her that she sucked.
    she needs to grow up, every artists has a hater and nobodies life is perfect…she needs to start doing something happy for once
    oh and i believe that she is a cutter due to all the drama she makes of her bullying and ppl hating her

  • lala.

    ewww she’s fucken flat.

    YOU SHOULD HAVE QUIT AND STAYED OUT OF THE ACTING BUSINESS!
    AND FOR THOSE IF YOU THAT WOULD GIVE YOUR LIFE TO SOME CUTTING LOW LIFE PIECE OF SHIT OF A PERSON THEN GO AHEAD!
    I HAVE NO SYMPHATY FOR STUPIDITY.
    OH AND THAT STUPID SHOW SHE HAS COMING OUT, I WOULD RATHER LAND ON THE SUN BUTT NAKED ON MY BEST DAY!
    AND IF SHE SMILES ONE MORE TIME, I AM GOING TO PUNCH IT RIGHT OFF HER FACE AND MAKE SURE THAT ALL HER TEETH FAL;L OUT AND MAYBE THEY CAN BE USED TO BUILD A DAM FOR SOME HOMELESS BEAVER!

    I dont understand wut kinda person hates her so much, wut kinda person has no life except to put other people down, wut kinda person is analyzes sum 1 so much n a picture that they wud look at her wrists. I mean wut kinda person looks at sum ones wrists in a picture. I mean who was the person who brought her scars to the publics attention?
    …………
    I know. They are seriously wasting their time. If they
    have something bad to say, they shouldn’t say it.
    Demi has thousand of fans who love her anyways, and
    those are the people who are the most important to her
    at the end of the day.

    “haven’t washed their hair in three days”

    are you kidding? dont you dare tell her to “grow up”…one of the best things about demi is that she acts her age unlike most stars in holywood who try to grow up and be mature too fast…like selena
    and where in this interview did she say anything about being bullied?

  • sara

    Im really happy demi is telling people about her past and everything shes been through. It makes her seem so much more real and not another fake plastic celeb. Also it makes it more easier to relate to her. (if your a fan)
    :)

    OMG! i think she’s talking about me about crying. Because when she came to Maryland, she had a little concert at six flags, and i was their front row crying when she sang “this is me” because i could relate so much to that song, and she’s sooo awesome! maybe. possible could be me she’s talking about. :]

    Its actually healthier for your hair to leave it about 4 days to a week before you wash it! N it also doesnt get as greasy!

    she dosent ACTUALLY say “i nearly quit performing”
    she just says i took a break for 2 years.

    What are you talking about? The wrist-slitting pics? To be honest, those didn’t need any analyzing. She wasn’t trying to hide them. She probably just wants the attention (in a cry-for-help way).
