Demi Lovato Opens Up About Her 'Weird Life' After Child Stardom

Demi Lovato is getting candid about being a child star.

The “Sorry Not Sorry” crooner shared her thoughts in a recent interview with Zane Lowe on New Music Daily on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

“I’ll be at the beach and someone’s taking a picture of me in my bathing suit without asking,” she said. “It’s kind of like, people are like, ‘Well, you asked for this life.’ And it’s like, ‘Okay, first of all, I was seven or eight when I decided I wanted to do Barney and Friends.’ No seven or eight year old can fully comprehend what life is going to come with being on television. No child can comprehend that. No adult can comprehend that.”

“And then you add social media, which came about when I was about 15,” she continued. “Millions of people comment about your body, about the way you look, your skin, your talent, who you’re dating, who you’re friends with, who you’re feuding with—and you’re just like, ‘Can I be a teenager?’ Like… Nope.”

“So yeah, I feel like I’ve definitely had a weird life, and yes, it was my choice, but I also wasn’t expecting for it to be what it is today,” Demi Lovato added. “I think even the idea of celebrity is completely different than the idea of celebrity 20, 30 years ago. Celebrities could be themselves and not—Paparazzi wasn’t huge. Not since like the Britney Spears days where like they started hounding her. It wasn’t a thing really until those days.”
