Demi Lovato, You've Become Such A Great Role Model — So Put Down The Cigarettes!

Wed, August 31, 2011 7:57pm EST by 124 Comments

Demi Lovato was photographed with a pack of menthol Marlboro cigarettes yesterday in Los Angeles, but if she wants to be a good example for her fans she needs to kick the nicotine habit!

In less than a year, Demi Lovato has completely made a 180 degree turn with her life. Not only has the 19-year-old former Disney starlet owned up to eating disorders and other emotional issues, she’s gone through treatment AND revitalized her singing career — no small feat for only 10 months. With all these positive things happening in her life, it was somewhat shocking — and disappointing — to see Demi carrying a pack of cigarettes in her purse while leaving Marmalade Cafe in Sherman Oaks Aug. 30.

Hopefully the cigs weren’t Demi’s — and she was just buying them for someone else. Nevertheless, she’s recently talked about how now (more than ever) she feels like a role model to her younger fans.

“Kids used to tell me, ‘You’re my role model.’ And I’d want to shake them and be like, ‘Whyyyyyy?’,” Demi recently said. “I finally feel like I can inspire people. I can be proud of it.”

However, if young Lovatics see Demi with cigarettes, they’ll start to associate them as “cool,” when that’s not the case at all. If Demi IS a smoker, she should try to keep it out of the public eye, only because she has so many fans looking up to her as a role model for health.

Ironically enough, Demi starred in an anti-smoking PSA in 2007, which I’ve embedded below. It’s interesting to see her so young in that commercial and then realize how far she’s come today.

Were YOU disappointed to see the Marlboro’s in Demi’s purse? Do you think they were hers? Sound off below!

You’ve got rappers talking about rape and treating women like dogs, and you’re worried about little Demi Lovato smoking cigarettes and a bad role model? Really?

Sooo who cares, shes grown. Just because your famous and in the limelight doesnt mean u have to be anyones rolemodel. If you dont want ur kid to support Demi because she “smokes” then ok, no one cares. Demi is a wonderful person, shes 19, which means shes grown which means she can legally smoke. Shes not breaking the law! Leave her alone!

You idiot, it’s the same cigarette box; the sun is just shining, washing out the green color. GUM doesn’t come in a 8×5 CARTON!
Get real.
