Demi LovatoFor her 18th birthday, Demi Lovato turned the tables and bought her family a Mediterranean-style home in Los Angeles (how sweet!). She tells People, "For me to give [that] to my family on my birthday, that was the best present."

"It's got pretty much everything you could possibly imagine in it, it's the most beautiful, homey-feeling house. I love it." She adds, "And the pool has a water slide, which is really cool."

Do you know what I was buying when I was a senior in high school? Gas for my Geo Tracker and the occasional lip gloss from Walmart. That's about it. Just goes to show you how vastly different celebrities' lives are because two teenage Disney stars bought homes this past week. Like full-fledged friggin' mansions.

Sigh. And here I am renting a tiny one-bedroom at the age of 25. Here are 5 other teen celebs who moved out of mom and dad's before they hit adulthood:

Miley Cyrus: Known for her more rebellious ways, the former Disney star bought a four-bedroom home for $4.3 million that boasts a tennis court and swimming pool. But the 17-year-old didn't wander too far from mom and dad -- they're only two blocks away.

Daniel Radcliffe: Back when he was a boy wizard, he bought not one, but two apartments in NYC before he was even a legal adult. 

Hilary Duff: Before she was married to hockey cutie pie Mike Comrie, she had lived with her sister Haylie in a three-bedroom Mediterranean-style home that she purchased for $1,650,000 when she was 18.

Jamie Lynn Spears: After getting preggers at the age of 16, the younger Spears and her baby's daddy bought a place in rural Mississippi. As we all know, the young couple didn't have a fairy-tale ending, and Jamie Lynn ended up moving back into her mom's house in Louisiana.

Nick Jonas: Along with his older bros, Kevin and Joe, they purchased their very first home in Dallas-Forth Worth, Texas, when Nick was only 16. Three young boys living together on their own? I'd really hate to see what the inside of that house looked like.

How old were you when you moved out? Could you imagine buying a house at such a young age?
