Demi Lovato Fan Meeting Experience

From Melissa D: i was bullied for most of my life. kept a lot of it to myself and started believing everything everyone would say about me. my self confidence was very low and i did somethings I’m not very proud of. up until i was 19, i was pretty much alone until i met my boyfriend. he’s my rock and helps me feel more comfortable in my skin. even though he’s there, i still battled my inner demons of insecurities. when demi lovato first came out back in camp rock, i felt a bond with her.

when she came forward last year with her battles, and got help and was honest about everything it really affected me. it made me respect her and idolize her even more. it made me feel that i wasn’t alone anymore and i was honest with my mom and boyfriend about some of the things i wasn’t proud of doing. every since then I’ve credited demi for helping me be honest and if she hadn’t come forward id probably still be doing things i shouldn’t. she affected me so much, that i got ‘stay Strong’ tattooed on my rib cage and have stuck with the saying ever since. of course it hurt but it was worth it.

..when i got to the del mar fair, i noticed girls waiting in line for the meet and greet so i walked up to the lady running it and asked her if i could still buy a meet and greet and she said yes. so i did. i pulled out the last bit of money in my savings account to pay for it. it didn’t feel real; i get to meet my idol? get to thank her for saving my life? show her she’s my inspriation for my tattoo? crazy feeling.

so i waited 2 hours. i could see her from far away. felt like christmas day. when you can’t wait to open a gift you’ve wanted for years. 5 closer. 2 feet closer. then the security says no talking, no autographs, and the photographer will email the photo the next day. i can only hope one day bulling stops and everyone can actually be happy and not feel pressure to be skinny, tall, short, gay, striaght, act and be happy with who they are.

    im sorry but people that idolize celebrities this much are insane. period. i like to listen to celebs music or see their movies, or even read about their drama in magazines/sites like this but i would never credit a celebrity for helping me or saving my life. you dont know these people! they are just an image. my role model is my mom, not some airbrushed face in a magazine that doesnt know i exist!! weirdos

    I’m sorry, but this whole thing is total bullshit. If you guys read, you’d see that they had to pay (apparently a lot, since she had to take the last bit of money from her bank account) JUST to get a picture with her. She doesn’t know if Demi was nice or not. She wasn’t allowed to talk to her. No speaking. No autographs. Just smile and next. That’s absolutely ridiculous. And, even though I’m a Lovatic, I find it extremely superficial that Demi would agree to do that. All of her fans spending that money to get a 2 second picture with her? Ugh, I’d never.

    I feel like the second that Demi went public with all of her issues, suddenly the majority of her fans decided to post all over Twitter and stuff that they have/had the same issues that she does. Interesting.

    Not really. They probably connected to her lyrics and to the fact that she was not as skinny as the other disney girls and still got a big role at a DCOM. Demi was also always open about being bullied, just not about the “bad” things she did because of it. Now she’s more open and real.

    Honestly, some people need to feel pressure to feel skinny. If you don’t, you can be putting yourself into an early grave. It’s not healthy to be happy with who you if who you are is significantly shortening your life.

    There is a range of healthy on the BMI scale and the range of healthy various from person to person. We all have different body types.

    Your comment is a perfect example of the fucked up image we have today in society. No body should feel pressure or stress — stress is EXTREMELY unhealthy.
