Teen Vogue magazine began as a version of Vogue magazine for teenage girls. This U.S. magazine focuses on fashion and celebrities and offers information about the latest entertainment and feature stories on current issues and events.
They're both talented, good-looking, and famous, but Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato don't exactly have the world on a string: Simpler pleasures, of the sort afforded to other kids their age, sometimes elude them. Earlier this year, when the Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam costars decided to test the romantic possibilities of their rock-solid friendship, they felt compelled to do so in public; when they broke up just a few months later, Joe announced it by issuing a statement, and Demi—always true to her loyal fans—decided to confirm the details on Twitter. "I kind of learned throughout this whole experience that having my private life public isn't as awesome as it might seem," the seventeen-year-old says with a rueful little laugh.
On the day after her song "Give Your Heart a Break" officially became her first-ever number one single, Demi Lovato is making a whirlwind visit to New York City to appear on three TV shows, participate in a mini junket to promote her gig as a mentor/judge alongside Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, and Britney Spears on The X Factor, and, finally, give her Teen Vogue interview, which—because she's due back in Los Angeles that very evening—takes place in the back of a luxury SUV as it speeds toward Teterboro Airport. By all rights, she should be exhausted. But the New Mexico–born, Texas-raised 20-year-old seems anything but as she talks about the superpacked schedule she's been keeping over the past few months. "The amount of success that I've had, even just in the last six months, is incredible to me," Demi says.
That very public adult transition—from Disney princess to mega-selling songstress and full-time role model—hasn't always been smooth, but whose teenage years ever are? What's more remarkable is how Demi is overcoming addiction, eating issues, and cutting with grace and sincerity, choosing to live out loud in interviews and in her music. When you think about it, her put-it-all-out-there honesty has made her the perfect ambassador for our post-everything Instagram generation. Naturally her twelfth (and most recent) tattoo says Now I'm a warrior. What else could it say?
