Now That They're Both 18, Let's Finally Discuss It: Who's Hotter, Demi Lovato or Selena Gomez?

Earlier this week, we shared with you Selena Gomez's new music video for "A Year With No Rain," a clip that finds the freshly 18-year-old Grand Prairie native touting her new of-age appeal.

Meanwhile, on Sunday night at the Center, Gomez's BFF and fellow Disney Channel-approved starlet Demi Lovato will perform in support of the Jonas Brothers, her co-stars Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, which made its Disney Channel debut last weekend. Oh, and she also just turned the big 1-8.

We mention all this, of course, because it more than begs of us to ask the decidedly creepy question: Now that they're both 18, who's hotter, Demi Lovato or Selena Gomez?

Hey, it's a legitimate question, and one the Internet has been debating for some time now--ever since the two leaked photos of themselves in bikinis, actually, and when even thinking about as much could've led to a Chris Hansen intervention.

Thankfully, though, those days are behind us. So, on that note, hit the jump for a far-too-intensive breakdown of hotness. And, of course, the results.

Contestant No. 1: Demi Lovato (born August 20, 1992)
Hometown: Colleyville
Claim to Fame: Star of Disney's made-for-TV High School Musical answers to Saved By The Bell: The Summer Season, Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. Also stars in the Disney Channel original series Sonny With a Chance.
Musical Chops: Has released two solo albums on the Disney-owned Hollywood Records, in addition to the two Camp Rock soundtracks she's prominently appeared on (the first of which went platinum). Those solo records were no jokes, though: 2008's Don't Forget peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard album charts; 2009's Here We Go Again, meanwhile, reached the very top of that list. Her singles, unfortunately for her, haven't fared as well; only her Camp Rock duet with Joe Jonas, "This is Me" broke into Billboard's top ten.
Local Music Act She Most Adores: Neon Indian, for which Hipster Runoff gave both Lovato and and Neon Indian frontman Alan Palomo flack.
Music Video In Which She's Maybe Too Sexy For Her Age: "Remember December." Clearly.

Looks: Lovato may just be 18, but she sure doesn't look it. Like many a Hollywood starlet before her, the girl looks a good five years older than she's supposed to. The fact that her music videos find her clubbing with pals probably adds to that much. If we had to pick another Hollywood celebrity to compare her to, we'd go with her namesake (we assume), Demi Moore.
Sex Appeal: Lovato plays the good girl on TV and in made-for TV movies, but we ain't buying that in real life. She looks like the rebellious girl who stays out past the curfew her parents impose, and like she sneaks cigarettes out of her purse the second her parents leave the house. Also, her favorite band is known for a song called "Should've Taken Acid With You." Basically? We're not buying the whole innocent vibe; Lovato's a bad girl all the way. And we don't need to tell you why bad girls are appealing. At least, we hope not.
