Demi Lovato: More Power to Miley Cyrus, But...

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Demi Lovato is already on record: she's so happy for Miley Cyrus.

But in a new interview with Katie Couric, it's not hard to see a bit of disappointment from The X Factor judge when asked about her long-time pal.

"I think she knows what she's doing," Lovato tells Katie Couric of Miley and her run of crazy antics. "A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that's totally fine and that's great, but I think that she has such an incredible voice that's overshadowed by some of the things that she's doing."

Like, you know, lighting a joint on stage at the MTV EMAs.

Lovato adds that this is Miley's "journey" and she's simply "having fun," so more "power to her!"

And she also understands what it's like to transition from child star to mature artist in front of the public.

"I think that the world kind of needs to get over the fact that she was Hannah Montana when she was like 16 or whatever," Demi says. "Same thing with me, but I guess my transition was a little different because I went straight to rehab, but... I didn't twerk, I just went to rehab."

At least she can joke about it now.

It's the same for Selena Gomez, The Jonas Brothers and many other stars, Lovato concludes. It can be challenging to grow up in the glare of the spotlight.

"We're adults now," Demi says. "I'm 21 and I'm nowhere near the same person that I was when I was 15... so go a little easy on us America."

Demi makes some good points. So many child/teen stars have train wrecks. Some recover some don't. Demi is fortunate she sought help when she needed it. That said, her life will never be perfect because she must live it each day at a time now due to teen excesses.. I admire her.
