Demi Lovato Thanks Her Fans, Is Spotted Out And About In Illinois

Despite the fact that she’s still in rehab, Demi Lovato’s career is doing better than most people’s, a success the singer credits to her support from fans. After winning at the People’s Choice Awards last week for Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam and a guest spot on Grey’s Anatomy, Lovato thanked her fans via Facebook.  “I wish to thank all the friends and fans who voted for me for the People’s Choice Awards and the Hot Hits Hottest Teen Stars of 2010. I want to make sure my fans know how thankful I am for all their love, support and prayers during this difficult time. Thank you for standing beside me through it all,” Lovato wrote. That is so sweet for Demi to write a thank-you message, though to be fair we imagine she has a lot of time on her hands right now.

Not that it’s all group therapy and no play for Lovato in rehab, as rumors that Demi has been spotted out in Illinois suggest the singer is able to take good behavior trips as her treatment continues. “Yea just was at target and Demi Levato was there… We asked to take pics but she said no…,” a surprised fan tweeted last Friday. No word yet on whether Lovato will be released to shoot Sunny With A Chance Of, which begins filming the week of January 30. “Everybody is really excited that Demi is still resting, taking time to relax, so I applaud her in that regard. When we start filming again, I’m sure everything will be back to normal,” says Sunny castmate Brandon Mychal Smith. Given that Demi went into rehab and actually stayed there (unlike many celebs we know), we have no doubt it will.
