I hadn’t formed a firm opinion about Demi Lovato until today. Apparently, even touring with the Jonas Brothers hasn’t stripped the Camp Rock star of her secret edge. Miley Cyrus may be the current reigning A Girl on the Disney roster (and the winner of that YouTube feud) but does she do pig squeals at soundchecks?
“I would love to secretly do some work on a metal band’s album,” she
said, adding that Underoath would be her first choice for a
collaboration. “I wish I could just secretly do vocals, and nobody
would know it’s me. I would love to just do a couple of screams. One
time I was at soundcheck and I told my musical director that I really
want to pig squeal, and he said, ‘Go ahead — I don’t care.’ I didn’t
want to, because I could see there were fans nearby, and he said, ‘Just
do it.’ And I did, and these fans reacted. They were like, ‘Wow, that’s
awesome — I don’t even know what that is, but it’s cool,'” Demi told MTV News.
The Disney brass likely already knows that Demi has Maylene, the
Sons of Disaster, Abigail Williams, Lamb of God, Dr. Acula on her iPod. Which explains why she’s been so reluctant to make
such things public. It’s no Vanity Fair cover, although it does offer some
decent bad-girl foreshadowing. Ten years from now, Demi, this could be you. Prepare to make your crossover.
