Biographies about celebrities can be powerfully inspiring, to let people see how difficult is to get successful. But without losing hope and have some luck in life, these people would get the goal they have been looking for. In the same way, it is interesting to see how complicated is to move forward, after these celebrities have been through some of the most problematic issues, like when they have been bullied, abused, tormented and so on. These stories can be told either in the books, television series, or even in movies, to see the celebrities' memories and their thoughts about how they felt, when they have been through their long road before they became famous. Demi Lovato is one of the most popular and talented singers, for her unique way to sing the songs as she has one of the most powerful voices. She is also an inspiration to several fans, since Demi Lovato has been open about her personal issues, as she still encourage the fans to believe in what they do without giving up. As well as to always fight against some of the most problematic issues, by never let them break anybody down. In 2017 came out Simply Complicated by Hannah Lux Davis.

Until she becomes sober to live a healthy life and be stronger, to become then a great inspiration. Simply Complicated explores in the most emotional way about the memories of Demi Lovato, to see what were her feelings when she was struggling with her personal issues. The documentary would also show some old pictures and videos, when Demi Lovato was a little child as well as when she was a teenager, where she acted in the movie Camp Rock and performed her songs in the concerts. These old pictures and videos make the editing compatible, without ruining the narration's rhythm. The documentary gets interesting to see Demi Lovato's feelings, when she was becoming successful by getting so much pressure while she moves forward with her career. In the same way, Demi Lovato's family, colleagues and friends, share their memories to express their thoughts when she was getting successful as well as when she was addicted. Until they have been impressed for how Demi Lovato became stronger, once she became sober and healthy, as she also practice kickboxing and jiujitsu which are sports of discipline.
