Demi: (on the self-inflicted cuts she has) I think scars are like battle wounds-beautiful, in a way. They show what you've been through and how strong you are for coming out of it. My tattoos say "Stay strong." "Stay on one [wrist] and "strong" on the other. Now I'm able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I've been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.
Demi: What would I do if I were President? That's a good question! I'd make more impact on music classes in school. There are so many schools taking out music programs, but sometimes it's really all kids have. It's all I had when I was in school.
Demi Lovato: (on what you can relate to the theme of Camp Rock) The theme of the movie is to be yourself and not worry about being popular. That's what I had to worry about in middle school. I was always worried about being popular. Wow, if I had a chance to do it over again, I'd so rather be a nerd than be popular -- it's so much less stressful and you can be yourself.
Demi: (on 'Camp Rock') I never wanted a part more than this in my life.
Demi: The only thing I could see myself doing is music – songwriting or producing or something. I've never seen myself being in any other business, I've been working in this one since I was 5 years old! I could do other things, but I wouldn't want to !
Demi: (on if she sees herself as the next Miley) No, I just see myself as Demi – Miley is amazing and has built a hugely successful career, so I respect that. It's just that, again, we're two totally different artists – and there's room for everyone to be themselves in this business. I'm just trying to be Demi right now!
Demi: (her response when she was asked about her confirmed appearance on the Jonas Brothers' Burning Up Tour) Fans can expect a rocking show. Like, seriously, my music is all gonna be pretty rock. The boys joked about it being a girl-Jonas Brother. And they really stepped up their sound, too, so I know that they're gonna put on a good show. I'm nervous, but I'm so excited. I think all the practicing in the mirror is gonna pay off.
Demi (on her 'Camp Rock' experience): It was a confidence booster. My character and I both like to rock out and now we're not afraid to!
Demi: (On her CD) I'm really excited about these songs. I feel like I've really grown as a songwriter with my last few songs, and I'm anxious to see what the fans think of them.
