VIDEO: Demi Lovato Talks Family & Breakdown in New TV Special

Demi Lovato‘s Canadian fan base was in for a special treat over the weekend when ‘Born to Be: Demi Lovato’ aired throughout the country. The heart-tugging special, similar to her MTV ‘Stay Strong’ documentary, touched on all of Lovato’s highs and lows throughout her personal life and career, including the importance of her friends and family who helped see her through a dark time in her life that resulted with the actress/singer/’X Factor‘ judge checking into rehab.

Thanks to the handy-dandy internet, some clips from the special surfaced soon after its premiere so fans all over the world could see what the sweet and talented Lovato had to share.

“I lost control of who I was,” Lovato admits in the special when talking about when she was 18 years old and became a person her friends and family hardly recognized. “I was very sick and I was performing shows on an empty stomach. I was doing a lot of things I wasn’t proud of,” she admitted. “I had kind of lost control of who I was and everything around me. I actually didn’t ask for help, but I definitely knew that I needed it.”

Lovato says she realized the treatment was working when she was starting to finish her meals “without a struggle.”

“It was a really great feeling, knowing I was doing something that was benefiting my health and well being, rather than my career. This was time for myself and it really felt amazing to accomplish goals like that. They seem silly, like finishing a meal, but for me, they were very difficult, but I was doing it and I am still doing it to this day. It changed my life forever. I am getting strong and I am unbroken.”

It’s going to be so much fun and so different than anything I’ve ever done. I’m ready to find a true star,” Spears said.

Demi added, “I’m totally stoked to be here, because of not only the opportunity to be a judge here, but the presence of you guys. It’s just an honor to be standing next to you. I’m excited to represent my generation, and I’m ready to find the winner.”

And the X Factor panel wasn’t done knocking NBC’s The Voice just yet. “This year we are seriously going to kick butt,” Cowell promised. “The Voice is going up against us; I wish them luck, but second’s not great. We are going to make this the best series we’ve ever made.”

BRITNEY Spears is already trying to call the shots on X Factor America.

The pop diva will reportedly receive $15 million to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the judging panel of the pop star search show and has asked that teen star Demi Lovato be considered for the final position because she believes they would have great chemistry together.

“Britney is the anchor of the new judging panel and that was Simon’s most important hire. Britney is extremely hopeful that Demi Lovato will become one of the judges because she truly admires her. Britney loves how open and honest Demi has been with her fans after she went to rehab last year,” a source said.

“She thinks they have a lot in common and that they would have great chemistry on the show. Britney is being kept apprised of the status of ongoing contract talks with Lovato and it is looking like she will be joining the show! Britney is extremely excited for filming to begin, which will be in the next month.

“Britney and Demi have met a few times very casually at Hollywood industry parties but those were very brief. Demi went to one of Britney’s concerts in Anaheim in 2011 and met with her backstage. Once Demi officially signs her contract Simon will have the new judging panel over to his house for a celebration dinner. The second season of X Factor is going to be amazing.”
