Difference between Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez
While Hollywood continues to give opportunities to adult celebrities to establish themselves as serious actors and actresses, it also opens doors to the youth who exhibit great potential, excellent talent and good looks. The Disney Channel is partly responsible for a large group of popular young performers these days. Disney offers exposure while providing a solid training ground for child stars who may or may not choose to make acting a solid career in their approaching adult lives.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are two young stars who made their way into the spotlight with the help of the Disney Channel. Now they are two of the youngest, yet most sought after, actresses in the glitzy and glamorous world of tinsel town.
Demi Lovato was born on August 20, 1992 in Dallas, Texas. She must have acquired her passion for singing and performing from her mother who was a country singer and cheerleader for the NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys. Despite her parents’ separation in 1994, Demi has shown passion and patience in achieving her goals when it comes to her first love: music.
In July 22, 1992, Selena Gomez was born in Grand Prairie, Texas. Similarly, her parents separated in the year 1997 when she was barely five years old. Like Demi, Selena’s mother was also a performer, she was a theater actress. Selena often retells how, as a child, she would avidly observe her mother prepare and perform in theater, which she credits with helping her develop her own performing skills.
At the tender age of seven, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez have already made appearances in several episodes of the childrens’ series ‘Barney and Friends’.
Demi also appeared in an episode from the drama TV series ‘Prison Break’ in 2006. She also starred in a sitcom from the Nickelodeon channel called ‘Just Jordan’. Demi’s most famous acting role was in ‘Camp Rock’, a Disney Channel movie, where she played the lead role of Mitchie Torres, a teen musician who aspired to make her dreams come true. She starred alongside Joe, Kevin, and Nick Jonas—collectively known as the Jonas Brothers.
Selena starred in the 2003 family film ‘Spy Kids 3D: Game Over’. She is also known for her role in the ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’, an Emmy Award-winning television series by the Disney Channel. After this, she ventured out into major roles. She starred in the romantic comedy ‘Another Cinderella Story’ which was released in 2008.
The best friends are not only actresses but musicians as well. Demi has already released two albums which have been relatively successful on the Billboard 200. Despite being a huge metal fan, her music can be best described as pop rock.
