Demi Lovato has opened up about just how close she and boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama are. She revealed that whenever she has an anxiety attack, all she has to do is give him a call and he can reassure her.
She said, “The first call I make is my boyfriend. He calms me down and makes me feel so much better. But having people who are professionals as well and not relying on just one person is another key to maintaining a healthy recovery. I talk to my therapist. I’m actually in AA, so I reach out to my sponsor. I talk to the people around me, like the people on my team. I vocalize a lot of what I need and they’re very understanding. I’m very grateful for that.”
After being calmed by Wilmer, she finds that exercise is also key in combating anxiety. She said, “Exercising is another way I deal with anxiety. Painting, and writing music and expressing myself through art are other ways that I can release emotions. Meditation is another one. Whatever it is, it’s important to find what works for you.”

I know, “functioning like a happy person” doesn’t sound very..organically happy. But I can assure you Demi Lovato is KILLING IT in the life department!
Nearly five years since she checked herself into rehab and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the singer has been keeping herself pretty busy, and I don’t mean knitting or gardening. The pop singer just announced her joint campaign with five mental-health organizations, called Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health, on Thursday, opened up about her life and happiness, right now:
On the status of her own happiness: “I’m living well with my mental illness – I am actually functioning like a very happy person would,” Lovato tells PEOPLE. “I couldn’t be happier today. Life is really, really great. I have a brand-new puppy and I’m able to not only take care of myself but take care of him as well. I’m living my dream. Life is pretty amazing.”
On having the support of her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama: “He’s been so helpful when it comes to being a part of my support group…And he’s one of those people who’s stuck by my side from day one of me getting help and saying, ‘Listen, I’m not going to be a ‘yes’ person,'” she says. “Someone that just says ‘yes’ to you because they’re afraid of what will happen to them because they don’t want to get out of the circle. ”
On how people can help combat mental illness: “It’s about speaking up for your community, which is taking action, whether it’s writing a letter to Congress and telling them how this is affecting you and your life and how you would like to see mental health care more accessible in your community. There’s so many different ways you can help. I think together as a country we have to step up and we have to do something about this issue that is becoming quite an epidemic.”
Hear, hear Demi! Man, at only 22, and doing so much. Can you imagine what she’ll have accomplished at 44?

Who knew her gross, drunken tattoo would inspire this much controversy?
Demi Lovato silenced the tattoo artist who gave her her “open vagina” tatto via Twitter on Wednesday, after the artist accused her of being a “drunk ass” who didn’t pay for a tattoo several years ago. US Weekly reports:
In early April, the “Skyscraper” hitmaker, 22, shared a photo of her freshly inked wrist, which altered the look of her previous tattoo. “Bye bye and hello ..” Lovato wrote at the time with a photo of her new design. “Thank you SO MUCH to my brother @GEESPOTAT2… It looks beaaauutiful and I LOVE it!! #RIPvaginatattoo #kidsdontdodrugs.”
The original tattoo artist, Ashley McMullen, caught wind of Lovato’s “vagina tattoo” comment, and constructed a response of her own. “Cool post @ddlovato,” McMullen wrote on in a comment on the singer’s Instagram. “Thanks for getting the tattoo covered up I did for free that you specifically asked for. Not to mention you didn’t even have the courtesy to offer me any money in the first place. You pissed all over our toilet seat and you made a fool of yourself. What a shame that people look up to you. The tattoo you covered it with kinda sucks too. Looks like you might forever be a goon. #demilovato #scumbag #turd #claimstobesober #drankallthebeer #peepeetoiletseat #yousuck.”
“Dear Ashley McMullen, I wasn’t going to acknowledge your bitter Instagram comments but since your side of the story has picked up some headlines, I would like to share my thoughts and send you a proper apology,” the “Neon Lights” singer wrote.
“First, I would like to say I’m really sorry I don’t remember you or getting tattooed by you, but as you know I was f—ed up and sometimes people act like ‘#turds’ when they’re loaded. Second, I apologize for my ‘#peepeetoiletseat’… That wasn’t on purpose, I was simply a drunken teenage girl. Lastly, I apologize for making fun of your work.. But… if I were you, I wouldn’t claim that one because it looked more like an open vagina (or even a butt hole as my 8 year old little sister called it at the time.)”
I don’t know, I kinda feel like Demi should be a little more respectful. Just being “drunk” isn’t an excuse to be lame. I FULLY support her covering up her weird vagina tattoo, but she could have been a little kinder to the woman who did it for her. What do YOU think?

Nick Jonas is getting real with who he’d “lips, wife of leave” of his famous high profile exes!
The Jonas Brothers’ hunk popped by Capital to chat to Max and really hash out some important info: namely, who he’d ‘lips, wife and leave’ out of his ex girlfriends Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, plus BFF Demi Lovato. Who did Nick want to make out with, marry or avoid altogether? Well, the hunk chose to marry his bestie Demi, for the fact he’d “prefer to spend life with her,” after explaining the relationship between them is like brother and sister.
Okay, diplomatic first choice. But let’s get to the GOOD STUFF.
Left with options of exes Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez in which to leave or make out with, Nick picked Selena to snog because- get this- she’s the BETTER KISSER OF THE TWO, and he’d avoid Miley – although he did say, “I got love for Miley, she’s great.”
The singer also chatted about dating the former Disney stars, stating he was much younger and the relationships were “fun dating situations”.
Of course they were. I’m still surprised that Selena’s a better kisser than Miley! For whatever reason, I thought crazy tounged glitterama Miley might be wilder in the sack! Weigh in below: who would you rather lips, wife or leave?!
