Though only 21, the pint-sized pop star has already dealt with the pressures of stardom. Bursting onto the scene as a Disney Channel starlet, Lovato captured the hearts of tweens everywhere before seamlessly transitioning into the world of music, with her first two albums landing at No. 2 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 respectively. After struggling with personal demons and a publicized meltdown, Lovato returned even stronger. Between two more albums, national tours, a return to the screen and a stint as a judge on The X-Factor, it’s safe to say the Dallas-native conquered the personal strife that marred her late teens. Using a "girl empowerment" theme as the backdrop to her 41-date Neon Lights tour, Lovato has gone to hell and back, and come out a brave, talented young woman ready to handle the pressures of fame.
