Demi Lovato has triumphed in the worlds of music, television and publishing, but it was in conquering her own demons that she became an inspiration for millions of girls and young women. Born in 1992 and raised in Texas, Demi was a child star who got her start on 'Barney & Friends.' Her casting in Disney's smash TV-movie 'Camp Rock' alongside the Jonas Brothers earned Demi her own series, 'Sonny With a Chance.' Her TV fame propelled her music career, with chart-busting albums, singles and tours. Her personal struggles included a much-publicized 2010 stint in rehab for bulimia and self-mutilation. An unbroken Demi returned to the scene with new music and a new TV gig judging on 'The X Factor,' as well as a No. 1 New York Times Best Seller, 'Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year.'
