Demi Lovato defends Miley Cyrus

Los Angeles: Singer Demi Lovato believes that her friend, singer Miley Cyrus is a talented artist, overshadowed by her eyebrow-raising acts.

"I think she knows what she`s doing. A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that`s totally fine and that`s great, but I think that she has such an incredible voice that`s overshadowed by some of the things that she`s doing," quoted Lovato as saying.

"You know it`s her journey, she`s having fun, she`s being who she is and will always love her. She`s been one of my friends since I was 14, but everyone`s on their different journeys right now and she`s doing that and having fun, so power to her!" she added.

The former Disney star has been criticised for her controversial dance moves on stage in the past.

Lovato, who was also a Disney star, says "the world kind of needs to get over the fact that she was Hannah Montana when she was like 16 or whatever".

"Same thing with me, but I guess my transition was a little different because I went straight to rehab, but I didn`t twerk, I just went to rehab," she said.
