25 Things About Me*, Demi Lovato

  1. 1. I was born in Dallas, Texas.
  2. 2. I make a mean queso. My unbelievable quesos are in my quesadilla.
  3. 3. My mom was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and country recording artist, so you can tell where I get my talent.
  4. 4. I never thought I was funny enough to be on Disney Channel.
  5. 5. I have an older sister, Dallas, and a younger sister, Madison.
  6. 6. When I was a kid, I was sitting next to Selena Gomez in line to audition for Barney & Friends. We ended up making the show together. We homeschooled together. We lived in a loft together when we were auditioning for things in L.A. We're teaming up next for Princess Protection Program.
  7. 7. It's definitely been extremely intimidating to work with people who are as well known as the Jonas Brothers are. There have been times where I definitely made a fool of myself and embarrassed myself by getting too starstruck. But we're planning to do a Camp Rock sequel.
  8. 8. I star in the Disney Channel's Sonny With a Chance, about a funny girl who posts her own videos online, gets discovered by a big-shot Hollywood producer and becomes the newest cast member of the kids sketch comedy show So Random!
  9. 9. My album Don't Forget debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
  10. 10. I really enjoy metal and I never used to listen to anything but rock, but I've been listening to different genres of music lately. Some favorites:  Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, John Mayer, Duffy, Phantom Planet.
  11. 11. I dealt with bullying in the past until I made the decision to homeschool.
  12. 12. I always had songwriting in the back of my head but it never came out

    of me until about the 7th grade when I started homeschooling and ever

    since then I've written probably around like 200-300 songs.

  13. 13. I'm super close to my co-star Tiffany Thornton (another Texas gal!), which is funny because her character Tawni is such a diva and is threatened by Sonny's talent.
  14. 14. I dominate at musical chairs. I crush at that game. There's an episode of Sonny where the So Random! cast goes head-to-head against the MacKenzie Falls cast. I won't tell you who wins.
  15. 15. I really like to shop at Urban Outfitters.
  16. 16. I usually wear lots of black and lots of eye makeup, but I've been dressing more "girly" lately because I'm more confident. I even have PINK nail polish on my toes now … which is weird because I haven't worn that since like, 8th grade.
  17. 17. Perez Hilton once accused me of cutting myself, but it was only because I had been wearing gummy bracelets really tight. When I took them off for Miley Cyrus' Sweet 16 birthday party, they left marks on my wrists.
  18. 18. Super Bowl Sunday was America's Next Top Model Marathon Day at my house.
  19. 19. On the set of Sonny, I once rolled a bagel across the set and it went under people's feet and hit the wall. Watch for that scene.
  20. 20. I look forward to Meatloaf Wednesday and Plaid Tuesday!
  21. 21. I was very resistant about reading the Twilight books at first because I thought they were just trendy, but I couldn't put the books down.
  22. 22. I like using emoticons like these –  😀 and 😛
  23. 23. My dressing room at Sonny is the most undecorated room of the entire building …  except for my awesome TV.
  24. 24. 30 Rock is one of my favorite shows, and Tina Fey is my idol in comedy.
  25. 25. I'd love William Beckett from the band The Academy Is … (TAI)  to guest star on Sonny With a Chance.

*Okay, Demi didn't really write this, but it's all true and compiled from her January press tour interview and MySpace blog.
