Demi Lovato: That Girl On Before The Jonas Brothers

August 17, 2008

Disclaimer: My mom wanted me to go. It was 7th row. I figured it was like going to see a worse version of the Beatles, in the sense that the fans would be psychotic in their adoration.

Well, now that that‘s out of the way, we can get onto the review!

Demi Lovato, Disney’s new it girl, and star of their TV-movie-of-the-summer Camp Rock, opened up for the brothers. Initially on Barney and Friends with Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez, Ms. Lovato has developed significantly since weekly tapings of that damn “I Love You” song.

On stage, she galloped around in her high heeled boots, from the baby grand to  the mic stand. Before one song, Lovato asked the crowd, mostly consisting of less than 12 year old Jonasheads, “How many of you guys have had your heart broken?” She was answered with a legion of deafening shrieks. The cynic in me had a good laugh about that one. But Lovato proved to the entire crowd that she was, in fact, the cleft chinned pale princess of heartbreak.

Her fans were eating it up. One, with neon yellow braces and raccoon eyes, as a result of a poor application of make up, demonically stared at Lovato, muttering “I wanna get back. Get back. With you.”

The music was ok; very calculated. Pop science, if you will.

But I’ve never seen PNC so crowded. So whatever Disney is creating in its labs, it seems to work.
