Demi Lovato dishes about her dark days, how she became healthy and happy, and the body part she loves the most. The Unbroken singer has never been so confident in her own skin!
“I’m not going to lie,” Demi says. “I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain.
Now: Clean and Healthy
“I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself,” says Demi. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.”
Sober is Sexy
“I think sober is sexy. It’s cool. I think it’s way cooler to be above the influence than under the influence.”
A Typical Friday Night…
“Now on Friday nights, if I want to go hang out with friends, I go hang out with friends. If I want to stay in and be in the hot tub and have people over to watch movies, I do that. I have more fun doing that than I did making the stupid decisions that I did back in the day.”
Friends For Life
“There are two people that no matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each other’s lives. [Miley Cyrus and I] are strong-headed. Selena [Gomez] and I, we never fight.”
“I’m not supposed to be stick thin — my body’s not made to be that way. I feel like I have a good butt. I don’t have boobs, but I got a butt!”
