Demi Lovato turns 22 on August 20 — wish everyone’s favorite actress/singer/activist a happy birthday!
Demi Lovato is turning 22 years old on August 20 — we can’t believe she’s still that young, considering that she’s been in the business since basically forever! Having got her start as a child actress on Barney & Friends alongside (ex-)BFF Selena Gomez, Demi has gone through some pretty dark times only to emerge from the other side a confident and inspirational singer, actress, and activist with a wisdom beyond her years. Check out our gallery of pics from her year!
Demi Lovato’s Birthday — Singer & Actress Turns 22 On August 20
Demi has had a pretty incredible year — she released Demi just over a year ago in May 2013, but the album continues to perform amazingly well. “Really Don’t Care” is the fourth single from Demi, and was received well by critics, fans, and the mainstream alike. She has been performing it along with Cher Lloyd, 21, basically everywhere — she even opened the Teen Choice Awards!
The video for “Really Don’t Care,” released June 26, was filmed at the LA Pride Parade on June 8. Demi is not only outspoken about her Christian faith but about her LGBT advocacy, as well, which is so important a message for her to convey to her legion of Lovatics.
Demi Lovato & Wilmer Valderrama Still Dating
As for her personal life, while the two have never publicly admitted their relationship, Demi is still dating Wilmer Valderrama, 34, and the longtime couple are going strong. Demi even nominated Wilmer for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
Demi continues to inspire not only through her activism but through her beauty and style trends, as well! Demi seems to change her hair color and style on a weekly basis, and every look is a winner. (My personal favorite is her silvery lavender ombré, pictured above.) While she debuted a much shorter ‘do at the Teen Choice Awards and doesn’t have as much to work with as she used to, we look forward to her next trendsetting look.
So, HollywoodLifers — and Lovatics — what do you love most about Demi? What do you think was her biggest accomplishment for this year? Leave your love for Demi below!
