ARTICLE: Demi Lovato: ‘I wanted to start my life over’

Demi Lovato had a tumultuous end to 2010, including a fizzled romance with Joe Jonas and leaving her tour early to check into rehab. But Demi is back and better than ever. See what she says to Seventeen about recovery, hitting rock bottom and rebuilding her life.

On the pressure to be perfect:
“I didn’t want anyone to be able to say that there was someone else working harder than I was.”

On hitting her breaking point:
“I basically had a nervous breakdown. I was really bad off. My parents and my manager pulled me aside and said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.”

On being afraid to get help:
“There were times when I thought, I don’t know if I actually want help because my eating disorders are my best friend. Looking back on it, I just want to cradle my old self up and hold her and tell her that it doesn’t have to be this way.”

On talking to Selena Gomez while in treatment, and rebuilding their friendship:
“We didn’t really discuss what I was going through — we just talked.”
