Demi Lovato pushes the boundary of the teen Disney Starlet Role

I’ll admit that as the father of a young boy, the modern Disney starlet doesn’t show up on my radar much. Sure we’ve watched an episode of Hannah Montana or two but we’re just not the target of much of the product coming out of The Disney Channel right now.

So when I saw down to watch Princess Protection Program I didn’t have very high expectations. As I said in my review, I was pleasantly surprised. A large part of that came on behalf of the talent of one Demi Lovato.

Lovato has been tapped as the next big thing for Disney and so far she’s living up to the billing. This week she was profiled by the New York Times, always a sign that your star is on the rise. Any of her fans out there reading this care to share what you see in her?
