Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Rapper Bizzy Crook knew that when he wanted to use a sample for his track "This Is Me," he had to find a way to weave in his favorite song from his favorite Disney movie. Which means "Camp Rock" star Demi Lovato makes a cameo on the track. The MC sampled the uplifting "This Is Me" because he really connected to its message of self-acceptance.

"When I was a kid I left the city where I grew up at, and I moved and it was hard for me to adjust. I didn’t have too many friends; I hung around by myself…then I watched the movie and that song really related to me," he explained of the tune.

Last night brought the troubling news that Demi Lovato has left her tour with the Jonas Brothers and entered medical treatment for "emotional and physical issues"—and with new info circulating that the star's problems stem from a painful past, everyone's wondering whether they missed the early signs of trouble. Does Demi's history reveal hints of darkness, despair and an abrupt exit from the public eye? Let's find out, with a look back at her life so far.

Demi (whose commonly-known name is actually short for "Demetria") was born on August 20, 1992, in Dallas, Texas. The child of a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader mom and a recording artist dad, she already had performing in her blood—the musically gifted girl started playing the piano at age seven and got an early start in showbiz as a cast member on "Barney and Friends." (Fun fact: Demi appeared on the show alongside Selena Gomez, who became her bestie.)

While it's anybody's guess as to whether a third installment of the movie musical franchise will be made (Demi Lovato says she's totally up for it!), there's still plenty of unseen "Camp Rock" moments to remind us of warmer months. And we have one of them just for you!

The "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" extended edition DVD hit store shelves yesterday, and it's chock-full of bonus goodies, including this never-before-seen clip featuring Demi Lovato singing "Different Summers."

"Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" certainly was a ratings gangbuster. Thanks to the 8 million people who tuned into the flick on Friday (September 3) when it premiered on Disney Channel, it seems likely that a lot of people would be excited to continue the fun in a third flick. And, it was an idea that the film's fearless female lead, Demi Lovato, was certainly down with when MTV News caught up with her earlier this summer.

"We don't know! It could be. It could be the end," she teased about the flick. "It could be the next chapter! I would love to see another 'Camp Rock' movie happen."

Grab some marshmallows and warm up the campfire, because Mitchie (Demi Lovato), Shane (Joe Jonas) and the rest of the gang are headed back to camp tonight in the Disney Channel Original Movie, "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam." In the sequel to the wildly popular 2008 movie musical, Camp Rock faces stiff competition in the form of Camp Star, a splashy, well-funded performance camp that conveniently opens right across the lake. The two camps duke it out in a televised talent competition to see who will survive—these woods aren't big enough for the both of them!

Whether you loved or loathed summer camp, it's hard to deny how much fun these outdoor retreats seem on TV and in the movies (besides Camp Crystal Lake, that is). In fact, we wouldn't mind packing a knapsack right now to head to a few choice locations. In that vein, we've compiled a list of the pop-culture camps we wish we could have attended.Take a visit after the jump!

If you were a fan of the first "Camp Rock" movie starring the always lovely Demi Lovato and the always adorable Jonas Brothers, you probably don't need much convincing to catch its sequel, "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" when it debuts tonight on Disney Channel. But, the stars of the song-and-dance fest were more than willing to provide a few good reasons to catch the TV movie, when MTV News caught up with them at the flick's New York City premiere.

"We have two camps this time—Camp Rock and Camp Star—and we kind of just battle it out to see who wins," explained star Jasmine Richards. "There's a lot of cool, fun songs and dances."

In a new radio interview with Billy Bush, Demi ended months of speculation when she confessed that she is dating her “Camp Rock” costar.

When Billy asked if she had ever dated a Jonas, the “Sonny with a Chance” star got all giggly, answering with a cryptic "maybe."Then when pressed about Joe in particular, Demi gushed, “He’s actually my best friend.”

Although Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato might be heating things up in "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam", which debuts sometime next year, for now (in real life), the pair are anything but dating. How do we know? For one thing, Demi denied it. And now, Joe's older bro, Kevin, is saying that rumors that they are dating just aren't true.

"There's rumors going around but I can assure you there's nothing there," Kevin told MSN Movies UK. "But in the film the love story between Mitchie and Shane continues for sure."

If you're young, cute and star in a hit movie alongside another young, cute actor, you best be prepared to deny some serious romance rumors (and we're not just looking at you Kristen and Rob). "Camp Rock" costars Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas understand Robsten's plight (they even have their own portmanteau, Jemi) and much like the "Twilight" duo have denied dating, with Demi even taking to her Twitter to shoot-down the gossip.

Whatever their real-life dating status, the two will be getting cozy in their upcoming sequel "Camp Rock: Final Jam" when it debuts on the Disney Channel next year. When we caught up with Demi on the red carpet at this weekend's American Music Awards we had to know one thing: Do the two finally share a steamy onscreen liplock?

Demi Lovato took to Twitter last night to clear up some pesky rumors about her and Joe Jonas. The "Camp Rock" star, who recently gushed to MTV News about how much fun she's having filming the sequel to the movie alongside the Jonas Brothers, wrote — multiple times — that contrary to what people might be saying, she is most definitely not dating Joe.

"There's been a lot of rumors lately that I'm dating one of my best friends Joe. I can promise my entire career that I am not," she tweeted yesterday.

The rumors about the two friends picked up steam after Joe and Demi were spotted having dinner with Kevin Jonas and his fiancée Danielle Deleasa — prompting whispers that they were out on date.
