Demi Lovato is a singer, songwriter and actress. Demetria Devonne Lovato was born Aug. 20, 1992 in Albuquerque, N.M. to Patrick Lovato and Dianna Hart de la Garza.

Lovato grew up in the Dallas, Tex. area and began homeschooling in the seventh grade after she complained of being bullied. She has one older sister, Dallas Lovato, and a younger half-sister, Madison de la Garza.

Lovato got her start in show business at age seven when she appeared on Barney & Friends with her now very famous friend Selena Gomez. Lovato landed roles in other TV shows, including Prison Break, Split Ends, As the Bell Rings, Just Jordan, Studio DC: Almost Live, Sonny with a Chance, and Grey’s Anatomy.

Her films include Camp Rock, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, Princess Protection Program, and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.

In 2008, Lovato released her album "Don’t Forget." The next year "Here We Go Again" was released. In 2011, she released "Unbroken."

Despite her successful career, Lovato has had many personal struggles. In an interview with 20/20, she disclosed that she had a "really unhealthy relationship with food" that started when she was bullied at age 8. Lovato also admitted that at age 11, she began to self-mutilate her wrists as a way to deal with her depression.

Dropping out as a performer for the Jonas Brothers Live in Concert Tour, Lovato stayed at a rehabilitation center from October 2010 to January 2011. She was treated for bulimia and self-injury. After rehab, both her life and her career rose from the ashes.

Her song “Skyscraper" debuted at Number 10 on the Billboard 100.

She is now a spokesperson against bullying and a columnist for Seventeen magazine. She writes about her personal issues for a campaign called "Love is Louder than the Pressure to Be Perfect.”

Lovato has dated Joe Jonas and Wilmer Valderrama.
