After appearing in Camp Rock and releasing her debut album, Don’t Forget, in 2008, Demi Lovato became a household name at just sixteen years old. But the star has actually been working and appearing on our television screens for much longer than that. She landed her first acting gig at just seven years old, when she appeared on Barney & Friends along with newcomer Selena Gomez.

Now, as Variety reports, Demi has a lot to say about signing up for a life in the spotlight so early.

“I wouldn’t start out that young if I could do it over again,” explained Demi. “I don’t regret anything. It was difficult to transition from a child star to transforming into a mainstream artist. It’s something that is very challenging.”

Surviving your teenage years is hard enough, but having to do it with literally everyone watching? That can’t be easy for anyone.

“You have to find your identity. For so long you’ve been molded into something and now you’re expected to figure out who you are very fast in front of the entire world. It’s definitely has been difficult, but it’s been a learning experience. I am still figuring out who I am every day,” Demi said.

While many of us have never experienced what Demi’s been through (since we’re not international pop stars, duh)  there is something so relatable about her message. Demi’s always been honest and open about her struggles, and she inspires her fans to do the same every day.
