Demi Lovato may be a star to teenage girls all across America, but performing at the “Kids’ Inaugural: We Are the Future” show on Monday gave the 16-year-old a chance to meet some of her own favorite celebrities, including the new first family.
“Honestly, it was a blur, because it was like, I’m standing in the presence of the first lady, but then you kind of forgot about it because she’s so normal,” she told MTV News after the show. “And she’s like way down to earth. She gave me a hug, and her daughters were so sweet, and you could tell they are not fazed by anything.
“The president was not there,” she added, joking, “One day, we will hopefully play golf or something.”
