!! Ms. Lovato exhibits tropes such as:
* AbusiveParents: Her birth dad was an alcoholic abuser who ditched her, then reconnected with her again when she got famous, and used her fame to make her look bad. Her mother is also accused of ignoring her various mental issues, though [[GenerationXerox it was later revealed]] [[http://www.torontosun.com/2013/12/11/demi-lovatos-mother-opens-up-about-eating-disorder-depression that Demi's mother also suffered from an eating disorder and depression at the time]], and [[http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/27/showbiz/celebrity-news-gossip/demi-lovato-father-mental-illness/ her father, like Demi, was bipolar]]. Demi has since reconciled with her father and mother.
** Her mother certainly [[AvertedTrope could be excused]] as according to WordOfGod, Demi did all that she could to hide or deny her illnesses/vices, until her public breakdown occured.
* AlbumTitleDrop: The ''Don't Forget'', and ''Here We Go Again'' songs.
** Also ''Demi'', which is dropped by Cher Lloyd on "Really Don't Care".
** The "Unbroken" song.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: "Trainwreck".
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent / NewSoundAlbum: ''Unbroken'' has a more electro and R&B/Hip-Hop sound to it compared to her two previous albums, which were more rock oriented.
* [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Annoying Younger Fellow X Factor Judge]] : To Simon Cowell.
* AntiLoveSong: "Heart Attack", "Without the Love".
* AwardBaitSong: "Two Pieces" and "Nightingale".
** "Gift Of A Friend" from the ''TinkerBellAndTheLostTreasure'' soundtrack.
* BitingTheHandHumor: She attacked [[DisneyChannel her old network]] for including jokes about eating disorders on their shows.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Demi alternates between all three hair colors. Her natural hair color [[http://www.cartoondollemporium.com/forum/pics/cdeblog/2012/11/hpt-Lovato2-11112-jpg_142245.jpeg is brunette]].

* IMeantToDoThat: One time when she was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lb2JV_WCttc performing "Until You're Mine",]] she tripped and started laughing. During one of the instrumental breaks, she said "I planned that, the whole falling thing? That was already planned!"
** She Lampshades it herself on occasion in interviews. "Ohh, that's Demi, there she falls again, trying to play it off (laughs)"
* JustFriends: "Give Your Heart a Break", her hit in 2012, is about a girl trying to convince a male friend that they should be more.
* MelismaticVocals
* MoodWhiplash: ''Unbroken'' falls halfway between hip-hop party anthems and CreatorBreakdown fueled ballads. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as her breakdown occurred in-between the recording the album.
* MsFanservice: Would sometimes go to this territory at times, due to her [[BuxomIsBetter curvy body, big breasts and round butt]].
* OvershadowedByAwesome: As much as they love each other, BritneySpears has out shone Demi in regards to TheXFactor.
* PrecisionFStrike: There's a video of her rapping a song by Drake feat. Big Sean, and she shouts "HOE, SHUT THE FUCK UP!" along with the music. It didn't attract anywhere near as much controversy as expected.
* PromotedFanGirl: worked with John Mayer, William Beckett JR of The Acadamy Is and Jon [=McLaughlin=] for Here We Go Again. Working with BritneySpears for XFactor.
* PowerOfFriendship: "Two Worlds Collide" about her relationship with SelenaGomez and arguably the rest of their friendship shows this rule.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: ''Everytime You Lie", "Mistake", "Everything You're Not''.
* RunningGag: Ever since the episodes of ''Shake it Up!'' and ''So Random!'' got pulled (see Dude Not Funny in YMMV), some DisneyChannel fans joke that whenever an episode of a series gets pulled for some reason (or hasn't shown up in rotation for a good while), it must be because Demi found something offensive about it.
* SelfBackingVocalist: Not always, but it does happen (e.g. 'Catch Me'). Otherwise, she's had people like the Jonas Brothers and Kara [=DioGuardi=] as her backing singers in the studio.
* SelfDeprecation: On- and offline cases of her laughing at her tendency to [[CuteClumsyGirl slip and fall often onstage]] are common, on her {{Twitter}} account especially.

* SlapSlapKiss: "Get Back", "Here We Go Again".
* SpiritualSuccessor: To Music/AshleeSimpson, starts doing rock, then experiments with Jazz and then goes to a RNB/Electronic route. Has a famous working sister in the business (this time younger) and complex father issues. Also wrote a TakeThat towards the general Hollywood and perfection machine.
** She can also be seen as one to Music/KellyClarkson.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "For The Love Of A Daughter" and "Skyscraper" provide calm thoughtful moments on the Unbroken album.
* TakeThat: ''La La Land'' is aimed at Hollywood AND Disney for their need to artificially perfect their teen idols.
