Demi represents a new breed of Millennial celebrity one who is loved not for her shiny veneer and untouchable image, but rather for presenting an extremely raw and authentic version of herself to her fans. Some call this new obsession with people and things that are imperfect: flawsome. Our panelists find Demi to be inspirational real and not afraid to embrace her differences. As Benjamin, 17 puts it shes a human kind of celebrity.

Young people today are demanding transparency from celebs as well as a new level of intimacy with them Millennials choose role models who are unique, true to themselves and not afraid to own up to their problems. With the advent of celeb gossip blogs & magazines in the past decade, its becoming harder and harder for celebs to maintain their pristine image but while most remain mum or deny rumors, Demihas embraced her less-than-perfect image. Adalee, 19 explains Unlike many celebs, she faced everybody and admitted that she isnt perfect and was in rehab. Most celebs try to hide the fact that they are going through troublesome times. Lindsay 21, says I respect her for being so open about her mental health issues, which arent talked about enough and are heavily stigmatized.

Body issues continue to be a growing issue for young women, and many MTV fans note that shes become a great role model for young women who feel the pressure to be super skinny. Shes not totally fake looking and is able to love who she is. Even guys are getting in on the Demi-love Jervone, 19 says she is a good person for keeping it real and not acting like she isnt a normal teenager. Go her!
