Just like an actual “Skyscraper,” Demi Lovato must be feeling on top of the world right now — or, at the very least, at the top of the charts. The 18-year-old songbird has hit a towering achievement with her emotional new single, which is receiving positive reviews and rave tweets from her famous peers — everyone from Katy Perry to Pete Wentz to Selena Gomez. Of course, it wasn’t always all sunshine and smiles for the beachwear beauty — the young star opened up to E!’s Ryan Seacrest about her eating disorders, issues with cutting, and more in an interview. Watch it below, then see what some fellow musicians had to tweet about “Skyscraper.”

We really admire this young woman not only for seeking treatment for her troubles, but for now being so candid about it. Certainly not every celebrity is so open about the struggles they’ve faced — many of them are content to sweep them under the rug and pretend like it never happened.

So we’d say the former Disney star is well-deserving of the praise heaped upon her via Twitter since her single dropped yesterday, as collected by MTV:

“The new song Skyscraper by @ddlovato is pure perfection. Her voice is one of the BEST undiscovered beauties. Can’t wait for the full record.” – Katy Perry

Ooh while on iTunes I bought Demi Lovato’s new song “Skyscraper” … song and her voice sounds rad! – Kelly Clarkson

“amazing when people put themselves into their art completely. #np skyscraper by @ddlovato – Pete Wentz

“Loving @ddlovato new song #skyscraper. Her voice is absolutely amazing” – Ashley Tisdale

Do you agree with her peers’ assessment of “Skyscraper”?
