Precision F-Strike: 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.
Running Gag: Ever since the episodes of Shake it Up! and So Random! got pulled (see Dude Not Funny in YMMV), some Disney Channel 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.
Self-Backing Vocalist: 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.
Silly Love Songs: "Catch Me", "Trainwreck", "Hold Up", "In Real Life", "Unbroken", "Lightweight", "Stop the World", "My Love Is Like A Star", "Made in the USA", "Neon Lights", "Two Pieces", "Nightingale", "Never Been Hurt".
Spiritual Successor: To Ashlee Simpson, 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 Take That towards the general Hollywood and perfection machine.
