I'm not going to compare the two. Two different generations. I've listened to stories about Demi's past and she's been through quite a lot. Bullied as a child, abusive, alcoholic, father, The only thing worse than what she's gone through was hearing about Freddie's battle with AIDS and his final days. I'm happy that Demi Lovato's music has been able to connect with and inspire so many young girls.
But since I'm a grown adult male it won't work for me. I'll go Freddie Mercury and Queen. If I could I guess I would keep Demi and trade away all her peers to bring back Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, John Lennon, and surround her with real talent.
