Miley Cyrus vs. Demi Lovato
In middle school you were awkward, goofy, and completely obsessed with Disney Channel. Sequined purses were big, Aeropostale was written on every boy's chest, Webkinz were the toy of the century, and you knew every single lyric to High School Musical. But the two biggest front runners of your Disney generation were Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.
Cyrus was famous for her star studded double life as Hannah Montana bringing her super fame. Lovato was the star of Camp Rock and Sonny With A Chance, two very successful Disney productions. You liked either Cyrus or you liked Lovato. In real life the two Disney stars were close friends but have now gone their separate ways in the modern music industry.
Though they're completely unrecognizable now, you know exactly which one you prefer.
Where do we begin? Disney Miley is not the woman we know today. She used to like glitter and blonde wigs and sport the fun name "Hannah Montana". She had bubble gum pop hits that filled giant stadiums, something that no other Disney star could match. She was more than just a Disney Channel Star, she was a pop star winning award after award at such a young age. Little girls envied her and little boys wanted to meet her. After a long successful run of "Hannah Montana" Cyrus took a turn for new tastes. It started with party favorite "Party In The USA" and darkened to "I Can't Be Tamed" leading to the Miley Cyrus we know today. Naked. Unpredictable. Tongue wagging free spirit with a love for sex, drugs, and alcohol. But we love that she dared to be different.
She was Disney Channel's sweetheart always portraying the roles as the nice girl next door. She had killer vocals and Disney banked on that slowly inching her way to superstardom. As soon as she became a hit sensation with Camp Rock, she was just as big if not bigger than the current boyband heart throbs, The Jonas Brothers. In following years Lovato faced sky high fame but it brought out some obstacles. She was lonely. She was depressed. She was using self harm and she had an eating disorder. Today, we see someone renewed. Lovato is a woman of empowerment bringing body confidence, self worth, and girl power to a worldwide stage. Lovato is back and we love it.
