Demi Lovato kicked off her career in the industry at a very young age. And if you are one of those die-hard Lovatics who's been around since the dawn of her stardom, then you probably know that she landed a role on Barney & Friends at the age of 7. Almost two decades later, she has become one of the biggest pop stars today.
But according to a report by Variety, the Camp Rock star isn't as happy as we thought she is about being famous at a young age. During a talk at Cannes Lions Festival, she shared how she hoped about things being different if she didn't jumpstart her career at such an early age.
“I wouldn’t start out that young if I could do it over again," she said. I don’t regret anything. It was difficult to transition from a child star to transforming into a mainstream artist. It’s something that is very challenging," she added.
“You have to find your identity. For so long you’ve been molded into something and now you’re expected to figure out who you are very fast in front of the entire world. It’s definitely has been difficult, but it’s been a learning experience. I am still figuring out who I am every day,” she continued.
“I feel like I’m at a turning point in my life,” said the "Stone Cold" singer who is "turning 25" this August. “I feel like I’ve lived a lot longer than I actually have,” she added.
“If you asked me a year ago, I would have said within the next five years I would be married, starting a family,” she said. “That all changed, which I touch on in my documentary. I don’t know what I want the next five years to look like. I’m still figuring that out. I love music, I want to make music and tour. I want to dive back into acting at some point.”
Well, we sure are happy that she's been around all these years! Plus, we are looking forward to hearing new music from her. And oh, let's not forget to see her back on the big screen. Camp Rock 3, maybe?
