Selena is super glad that Demi was able to overcome her issues enough to help other people who are going through the same thing. In a new interview with i-D magazine, she said, “I’m very proud of Demi and her being able to accept the challenges she went through, but also for staying a good role model to people who do struggle with the things that she’s gone through.”
She continued, “I’ve always been taught that you are who you surround yourself with. So if you surround yourself with good positive people you can only do good things for them and they can only do good things for you.”
She added, “It is frustrating at times when certain things are being said, but other than that I’m just a normal girl living a normal life.”
We’re proud of Demi, as well. It’s got to be hard to go through these things, but to share her story in order to help others? Good for her!
The X Factor judge Demi Lovato appears on the latest cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. Inside, she has revealed that her problems have gone on longer than we’ve previously thought. In fact, she says that she was suicidal at the tender age of only seven-years-old.
At seven-years-old, she was singing the theme song on Barney & Friends, but her troubles were just beginning. She said, “At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who’s ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child’s heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was 7.”
She said that Barney helped her through what she was going through at the time. She said, “I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way. I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.”
Demi Lovato is going to have one heck of a year! The “Heart Attack” singer has just announced the upcoming release of her fourth studio album, titled “Demi”.
She released the album cover today, along with the announcement. The singer posed topless, with dark lipstick and not much else!
“I’m incredibly proud of this album,” the 20-year-old singer said of her album in a statement. “It’s better than anything I have ever done! I experimented with a variety of different sounds and poured my heart into writing these songs. I’m so excited for everyone to finally get the chance to hear them!”
