We always knew there was something we liked about Demi Lovato. Maybe it was her unabashed love for Canadian teen musical drama Instant Star. Maybe it was the way in which she has, after taking a brief career hiatus to address health issues, been surprisingly brave in her willingness to talk about her experiences, and to insist on the ordinariness of them, in the face of a celebrity-gossip machine that sensationalizes and ostracizes anything related to questions of mental health. In any case, when we heard “Skyscraper,” and saw the video, we knew we had to book her for the 2011 Do Something! Awards. And when we saw that performance, we knew we had to get her on board as a VH1 Posted artist. Of course, even before any of this Lovato would have been a great candidate; she’s known for being extremely open to communication with her fans (the Alexz Johnson revelation, for example, was from a live chat from over two years ago). But with “Skyscraper” currently at #2 on the VH1 Top 20 Countdown, the timing couldn’t be better.
