Demi Lovato showed off a more risque look and act during her performance at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles last night, hitting the stage in an all black outfit that was somewhere between Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez in style.
Lovato, 19, is in the same graduating class of Disney Channel teen queens as Cyrus and Gomez. Now they’re all trying to establish themselves with second acts as adults.
Lovato, who is best known for Disney’s Camp Rock movies, wore a black leather jacket and mini skirt with a black lace bustier, black sheer stockings and calf-high boots. Her streaked blonde hair also included some pink tricks to go with her pink lipstick.
It’s definitely a more daring, rocker-chick look for her, but nowhere near the risque outfits that Miley wore on her last tour.
The new “X Factor” judge, has also become a leading advocate of the dangers of teen disorders such as cutting, anorexia and bulimia. She also acknowledges that she is bi-polar, which she says has caused her own problems with eating and self-loathing.
She stars on “X-Factor” with Britney Spears, with whom she says she can relate. “Britney is such a sweet girl! We’ve gone through a lot of the same things, so we have a connection,” she recently told Self magazine.
Demi drew some criticism for her outfit from TheHuffingtonPost, which questioned whether leather was “summer appropriate” and called her outfit “clunky.” But at least it gave her a thumbs up for her “seasonally appropriate, totally awesome” lipstick.
