Demi Lovato Shares Inspiring Advice at Teen Vogue Summit 2019

Demi Lovato takes the stage at the 2019 Teen Vogue Summit!

The 27-year-old “Echame la Culpa” singer stepped out for the event held at Goya Studios on Saturday (November 2) in Los Angeles.

Packed with inspiring talks, workshops, and performances curated by the editors of Teen Vogue, the Teen Vogue Summit is designed to prepare attendees to create change in their communities. More than 1,000 young people participated in the weekend.

“Over the past five years I have changed a lot,” Demi told the crowd at the event. “Like, I have gone through a lot. This is like, really, my first public thing back. So forgive me if I’m a little nervous, but it’s my first time and I haven’t done anything in front of an audience in a while.”

“I wish that I would have known that it is best to live your life without hiding anything,” she added. “I spent so many years trying to put on the role model front rather than being true to myself and being me. Like, I tried to refrain from getting tattoos when I was young because I was afraid that if Disney saw I would get in trouble or something. But really, they just covered it up. It’s not a big deal. It’s just better to be yourself, so if you want to dye your hair purple, dye your hair purple. If you want to love someone of the same sex, love someone of the same sex. Just be yourself.”

Demi was joined by Descendants 3‘s Sofia Carson, The Act‘s Joey King, Westworld‘s Evan Rachel Wood, Insatiable‘s Debby Ryan, Unbelievable‘s Danielle Macdonald, The IntrudersMiranda Cosgrove, I Feel Pretty‘s Busy Philipps, Midsommar‘s Florence Pugh, Little Women‘s Greta Gerwig, Supernatural‘s Samantha Smith, Insecure‘s Issa Rae, This Is Us‘s Mackenzie Hancsicsak, and Lethal Weapon‘s Chandler Kinney.

Also in attendance were The Real‘s Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, Liza on Demand‘s Liza Koshy, Foursome‘s Rickey Thompson, singer Justine Skye, model Tess Holliday, YouTuber Nikita Dragun, fashion blogger Aimee Song, and stylist Karla Welch.
