Demetria Lovato told Katie Couric today: ‘I think that the world needs to get over the fact that she was Hannah Montana when she was 16. I guess my transition was a little easier because I went straight to rehab. I didn’t twerk, I just went to rehab.’
It’s something nobody knows and nobody really knows who I am, and same with Selena [Gomez] and Jonas [Brothers], and everyone that has grown up in front of the public eye, and we’re adults now.. we’re all in the process of doing that so go a little easy on us, America.
A lot of artists take that route of shock value, and that’s totally fine and that’s great, but I think she has such an incredible voice that’s overshadowed by some of the things that she’s doing. It’s her journey. She’s having fun; she’s being who she is. But everyone is on their different journeys right now and she’s doing that and she’s having fun and power to her.’
