Demi Lovato is unlike other Disney stars. While many are chatty and possess sunny dispositions, Lovato is quite the opposite. It is not easy to interview her because I met her two years ago at a press event in New York and she was mostly glum throughout the interview (we were told later that she was feeling under the weather).
Fast forward to the present, nothing much has changed, it seemed. Two weeks ago, the international press gathered at Le Parker Meredien Hotel at Midtown Manhattan, New York City, to speak to Lovato and other cast members of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, sequel to the 2008 highly successful Disney original movie Camp Rock.
After the first day of interviews, some journalists were complaining at how uncooperative Lovato was. And they were not exaggerating. Listening to some of the recorded interviews, you could tell she wasn’t interested to talk to the media. She gave curt answers and sounded bored. And these were group interviews; so the journalists wished me well for my one-on-one with the starlet the following day.
After fretting all night, rephrasing questions and coming up with a worst possible scenario solution, I was ready for the interview.
