Demi Lovato was destined to be a star from a young age, starring in Barney & Friends as her first gig alongside on-again off-again pal Selena Gomez. Ever since, Lovato has had a few personal struggles but has managed to remain a pop icon of the times with an impressive net worth to match.
After Lovato’s Barney & Friends stint, she became a full-fledged Disney princess. Starting in 2007, Lovato became staple on the television network, starring in the show As the Bell Rings, Camp Rock, and Sonny with a Chance.
Lovato would later continue her star status by making use of her pipes, releasing her debut album Don’t Forget in 2008 but achieving the solidified status as a pop icon with the release of her 2011 “Skyscraper.”
She also had a stint on the X Factor as a judge and was paid handsomely for her time; reports say that Lovato made $1 million for her first year and double that for her second, which wasn’t bad considering the show had dismal ratings.
Lovato is a role model to many and has become somewhat of a spokesperson for the personal issues she’s overcome throughout her time in the spotlight, speaking candidly on her issues with mental health.
She has numerous projects including songs and even motion picture appearances slated for this year, so stay tuned.
